    Fuck Floyd v Pacquiao and Floyd v McBitch. GGG v Canelo is what I'm REAL hyped for.

    I'm betting on GGG. Canelo's too fast for GGG, but GGG is a fucking tank(Both as in, can dish out and can take in), he doesn't seem a little bit phased or bothered by getting punched and stays calms and controls the game, of course he never fought someone that uses the "fly like a butterfly, sting like a bee" philosophy so well, but I think he might pull it off. Canelo's punches are no joke, he has one of the strongest hooks I've seen, and really is a versatile fighter, but I think if he(Canelo) tries to outpunch Golovkin(Which I'm pretty sure it's gonna happen because Golovkin puts you always in a tight spot and conners you till you either have to punch or slip, it's just too much pressure) Canelo will lose, GGG has a more killer punch and proven to take a hit without getting bothered.

    Whoever wins, I'm happy and I'm sure it will be so fucking awesome to see those two fighting, love Canelo and love GGG. Hope they give their best.

    GGG is gonna jab Canelo to death and knock him out in the later rounds.

    GGG accuracy is the best plus he didn't waste too many punch.

    I don't know how this fight will turn out. It will be interesting seeing whether or not Golovkin's power will remain against someone who will turn and counter him.

    I can see the fight playing out like Garcia and Mattysse. I can see Canelo dominating GGG. I can see Golovkin beating a promising career out of Canelo.

    If I was a betting man, I would put my money on Golovkin. I don't think Canelo has the pop to break Golovkin down, but Golovkin hits hard enough that if he finds himself connecting, Canelo will be done by the mid-late rounds.

    Agree, even his body shot, Canelo really need to watch out for it.

    I think Canelo is the better boxer and counter puncher so he might get to GGG and KO'd him late or win a UD, but GGG is the better puncher and Canelo has a tendency to take rounds off and rest on the ropes which is a bad place to be on this fight

    If I have to put money on it, I would go with Canelo, GGG is looking at this as one of his last fights and seems to have already started to slow down a bit.

    I feel this could be unexpected in that it won't be as competitive, I think one of the two is going to dominate the fight. I hope I'm wrong and we get a live 12 round barnburner.

    Good year for boxing. This is gonna be a war, I'm rooting for GGG. Rigo vs Loma has finally been agreed upon for December and Wilder vs Ortiz is happening November.

    agree the Rigo vs Loma was set to be an epic fight too, but for now let's focus in Canelo Vs. GGG.

    Loma will end up dominating Rigondeaux. They are two weight classes apart which means an evenly contested bout will favour Loma down the stretch. Rigondeaux's clean punches will not deter Loma, but Loma's would break Rigondeaux down. In short, it would play like Brook vs Golovkin.

    First round to Canelo. Sharp with his jab, some nice counter, and a shot to the body.

    Second round to Canelo. Picking his shots and fighting at a comfortable pace.

    Third round to Canelo. Better work from Golovkin but I felt the crisper shots were landed by Canelo.

    Fourth round to Golovkin. Better offensive work from Golovkin. Feel that Canelo is investing well to the body though.

    Fifth round to Canelo. Golovkin landed a good right but that isn't enough to erase the rest of a round I thought Canelo controlled and picked his punches well in.

    Sixth round to Canelo. Difficult to score. Golovkin is dictating the pace and putting Canelo under pressure. Canelo is being effective with opening and negating offence with defence.

    Seventh Round to Golovkin. Dictated the pace. Canelo landed in spots but I don't think it was effective.

    Eight round to Canelo. Landed the cleaner and more effective punches. Golovkin is still controlling the pace and I feel Canelo is gassing, his timing is mitigating that.

    Ninth round to Canelo. Same as the eight.

    Tenth round to Golovkin. Feel Canelo is on his way to getting stopped. He looks spent.

    Eleventh round to Canelo. Spent but his timing and upper body movement is making him effective.

    Twelfth round to Canelo. Cleaner punches.

    Scored it 117-113 Canelo. Favoured his crisper punches over Golovkin setting the pace.

    First two for Canelo, looking more confortable and cleaner work. 3rd could be given to GGG

    Golovkin seems to have a really good chin.
