Went to the fight. We were rooting hard for Linares, glad he fought well but lomachenko a beast.

Linares might've retained the title without that perfect punch to the liver. I think he deserves a rematch if he wants one.

I agree. I wish he pounced on Lomachenko in round 7, after the knockdown the previous round cause Loma was a bit hesitant for a bit after that till he got his second wind back. The cards were pretty close after 9 too (they had a draw).

Oleksandr Usyk is probably the best boxer in the world

I thought Gassiev would win but it did not surprise me that Usyk won as he looked excellent against Breidis.

With that said, I'd still have about half a dozen boxers comfortably over him.

Usyk also barely beat Breidis.

I would rate Golovkin, Lomachenko, Spence, Crawford, Sor Rungvisai, and Joshua as being better.

Canelo, too.  I've watched more boxing this year than I have in years and years.  As someone who is used to judging MMA and kickboxing it has been interesting getting used to judging fights in boxing.

I'm probably going to try to become a judge next year. Have been considering it for a long time.

He’s beaten better opponents than Crawford, fights everywhere, and other than great power is the total package in the ring. His stamina is insane. I don’t think the other guys can fight on the road like he does.

So close.  I'm not mad at the decision but I thought GGG won.  Announcers seemed biased in favor of Canelo.

GGG won the damn fight. It was 12 rounds of HBO guys being fascinated that Canelo was doing better than the 1st fight.  Canelo was doing better early in the fight than he did the first time around, but GGG rallied and eventually pulled away.

Not to mention a judge giving Canelo the 12th is assanine.

People remember the rounds GGG won more than the ones Canelo won but they still score the same.  I'm going to rewatch and make another judgment but I think it's only going to cement my opinion that GGG won it.

Based on immediate memory, I had it even through six. Then GGG started landing combos and seemed to rock Canelo good each round from that point out.  Canelo did most of his best work in the first few rounds.

I didn't watch it but the opinion seems to be solidly behind GGG winning the fight. There's a lot of talk about crooked judges helping Canelo win.

Rewatched it.  115-114.  I feel dirty giving Round 1 10-10 so if I had a gun to my head I'd go Canelo.  That would make it 114-114, draw lol.

Announcers sucked.  Seemed biased in favor of Canelo early on.  GGG did better early and Canelo did better late than I had initially judged.

This is weird cause I've wanted him to lose this title for a long time, but not like this. After Adonis Stevenson got knocked out earlier he is now in critical condition. Brutal sport.

To update on the Adonis thing, he has a severe TBI and will likely be a vegetable for the rest of his life.

What I read says it's still too early to comment on long term health.  TBI isn't a good sign, though.

Loma is just too good. The combinations he was hitting Pedraza with in the 11th looked like Roy Jones Jr. stuff.

I was thinking during this fight that he was fighting like Frank Bruno.

I try not to overreact over tune-up fights, but there were things in that Fury fight I couldn't believe were actually happening. They will show the last minute of that fight in 20 years the way they show Mike Tyson shit now.

Manny has to be a top ten fighter ever at this point. He's supposed to be losing to the kinds of guys he fought last night, not beating them soundly. Scorecards said differently but that was a rather wide decision I thought.

Agreed. Manny won at least 7 rounds, and you would have to give Thurman every other close round to make it close. He’s out of this world

Isn't Lomachenko the interim champ and Commey/Lopez are fighting for the undisputed championship?  I know it it's something screwy like that.

Very disappointed in Andy Ruiz admitting he did nothing but party leading up to this fight. Easy work for Joshua.
