My guess is they'll let GGG have this one, so they can set-up Canelo-Golovkin IV.

Mo' money, mo' money, mo' money, mo' money ...............

I'll watch it again, no doubt. The second fight was better than the first. The judges are one thing, but the fights themselves have been fun to watch. I actually had Canelo 7-5 last go, so I'm pretty cool with that one.

It is 1-1 in my book, and let's face it in boxing the fans books matter more than the real ones a lot of times.

In talks for September.
I think I would rather see Golovkin face Andrade a week before or week after for the WBO. Then the winner can face Canelo next to become undisputed...

GGG did not look good whatsoever last night. It wasn't a good idea for him to change trainers while only having, roughly, 2-3 years left in this sport. I'm sure GBP jumped at the prospect of this fight seeing what they did last night.

Canelo seems to look better with each passing fight over the last couple years while GGG loses a bit more each time. I thought GGG won the 1st fight 8-4 but Canelo won the 2nd 7-5. They're clearly trending in opposite directions at this point.

I agree and also saw the first two fights going that way (didn't score them though). I don't see a 3rd fight ending well for Golovkin. Canelo is too sophisticated to lose imo. He won't take chances and huge counter will finally put Golovkin down or hurt him. GGG gets hit way too much I don't see how he wins.

I see a tko loss for Golovkin. Canelo opens him up, breaks his nose, fractures his face, something along those lines. For sure Canelo wins.

After GGG's performance last night, I can see a Canelo stoppage late in the fight. I'm not sure how GGG's early week bout with some sort of illness the announcers were talking about affected him, but he did seem to show a bit of vulnerability, especially to body shots and if Canelo can target that body like Derevyanchenko did last night he could break him down.

Yeah right.
MMA and the UFC is the only sport going on right now. I'm not even sure if other MMA organizations are having fights besides the UFC.

Huge blow to the ego of those involved with promoting Boxing. Dana White is also going in on Arum. In order for Boxing to remain where it's at fighters are gonna have to fight more often. It's better for everyone involved with the sport and hopefully it leads to less mismatches in Boxing!

Wishful thinking.
