I want that, too. But I fear Golovkin might be getting a bad deal here. I thought he won the first fight by at least a couple rounds; it was called a draw. The second fight was closer but far from a clear victory for Canelo. For the last year+, Alvarez has been trying to cast it as a "been there, done that" scenario in which he's clearly beyond GGG. It seems to have worked for some but I'm not seeing it.

I'd like a trilogy fight in May and versus Charlo in September.

I also thought Golovkin won the first two fights, but as long as it's close, Canelo will always get the decision (Lara, Trout).

At this point, I'd like to see Golovkin move up to 168. If he looks good there, maybe a third fight could be possible. But at his age, it's going to be tough to keep it as close.

Two fights ago, I would've disagreed about Golovkin moving up to 168. After Friday night, though, I agree. He still looks sharp, super powerful, and I think he could compete for a belt at super middle. If that's what it takes to get one more fight with Alvarez, so be it. I just hope it happens next year. Even GGG will get old.

And, to be clear, I don't think Canelo is ducking him or whatever. They fought twice. Like his former promoter, De La Hoya, he routinely fights the best competition. So far, however, his luck with the judges hasn't run out for Canelo like it did for Oscar against Trinidad and Mosley in '99 and 2003.

This Henry Armstrong thing of winning championships at multiple weight classes, concurrently, is a historic privilege for boxing fans.

Just noticed the Ryan Garcia fight is early, show starts at 3ET. Couple title fights on he undercard so that settles my afternoon plans this Saturday.
 

Hoff

EVERYTHING
I can't believe Frankie Edgar is still fighting. I have a Zoom game night thing this Saturday and now I kinda wanna blow it off and watch that old man go.
