Triple G v Canelo Alvaraz



  • Just a heads up to those that may be unaware,

    This middleweight fight on Sunday shapes as a classic , a throw back to the hagler /hearns / Duran days

    Arguably the two best pound for pound boxers in the world in their prime squaring off , something we don't always get to see ,

    Both fighters are naturally aggressive in their fight style , should be a war .



  • Yup big week for the middleweight division with Billy Joe Saunders finally stepping back into the ring to take on Willie Monroe for the WBO title. Hope to see the winners of each fight take on each other for undisputed middleweight champion.



  • Wouldn't be surprised if this fight is a great one ,

    We could see a trilogy , they could fight 3 times

    It should happen for the belt



  • A draw , mmmmm ,

    I'm a Canelo fan , but I thought ggg 7-5 , 8-4 , around that



  • He's not happy



  • It was a bad call. I can understand a draw but 118-110 the other way? I'm no boxing expert but it seemed like Canelo landed a few big shots but Triple G dictated the majority of the fight.



  • Canelo is a good boxer but there are question marks over his natural cardio ,

    at junior middle weight where he was the physical beast , he always took breaks , but he got away with it there, that was always the concern stepping up to fight GGG,

    Early in the fight where he occupied centre ring he troubled GGG with his skills and looked to have the upper hand ,

    But it faded and there wasnt enough of it in total, GGG just kept coming forward and threw and landed more often ,

    All set up for them to go again I guess ,

    Canelo at 26 , first fight at 160 lb , GGG 36 and showing signs of slowing up ,

    Watch Golden boy try and drag this one out to Canelos advantage
