GGG is 40 and while he beat Murata, he took way too much punishment and if Canelo makes even half of the contact that Murata did, this will be over early.
Exactly my take on this upcoming fight. Murata got to GGG's body often in that fight and body punching with power is one of Canelo's strong suits. "Take away the body and the head will fall" is an old adage in boxing,.and I can see it playing out here with Canelo stopping GGG after 8.


I don't put a lot of doubt about Canelo after his recent loss to Bivol. He has been pushing the limit in opponents for a few years now by going up in size. He just went one size too far for his stature. Bivol was huge when compared to Canelo when standing next to each other.

Yeah GGG isnt getting the win on points unless he stops Canelo or drops him a few times

GGG won't win this one period. No way in hell Canelo is going to lose 2 in a row, especially to a 40 yr. old who showed he is much easier to hit to the body like he did in his last fight with Murata.

I've already got one 6 month "Ban Bet" on another site against a true GGG nuthugger that Canelo will win. Care to take me up on it on this site????

Its just a prediction calm down I love the sport don't care about ban bets and make the best man win

I just think GGG has declined abit but Canelo hasn't improved so its a closer matchup (Murata isnt that bad offensively and he threw the kitchen sink Canelo doesnt fight like that)

If I see the odds are good I will put money on GGG to get dropped to see if I can win money but overall I win anyway as I will enjoy the fight

P.s If you are a picking Spence to beat Crawford id do a ban bet on that
Nope, like Crawford in that one if they make the fight.

There's like 8 people on this site, why would you make a ban bet...dumbass
It's called "testing people's convictions" if they are willing to put something on the line in the form of a bet.

Not my fault there's only so many members still participating in this site. OH, and calling a participant "dumbass" is not a particularly good way to make them feel welcome, or even needed, either. So, cool your jets since it didn't concern you in the first place.

I was just kidding man. I was bored. Now stop trying to lessen the members on here. Bet nudes or something
Right after you wanted to know if I'd be up for a ban bet between Crawford vs. Spense. Can't have it both ways pal.

You're either for, or against ban bets--------but you can't come out being adamant about not wanting to see ban bets due to limited membership, then try to initiate one of your own......................Kind of hypocritical isn't it????

DAZN already looking like hypocrites with their about face on PPV.


Yep, and that is why I sent them a notice to cancel my subscription when it comes up in the middle of this month. They have gone from $99 a year to $149 a year in the States and are now making all their best fights a PPV event.

Not exactly their business plan when they first surfaced, and one I'm not wanting to be part of any longer.

Confirmation now in that the PPV price is indeed set at £9.99 and Joe Markowski addresses his earlier comments that this wouldn't be on PPV in the UK, following the u-turn (the video starts at the right place when you click)


Just checked the DAZN site here in the States and the price showing for the PPV Canelo/GGG fight is $64.99, or 56 of your British pounds. That's a hell of a price jump.

The skeptics called DAZN out at the very beginning and have been proven correct over time.

I see it like this. Their initial introduction into sport at the price they were offering it was a bargain if you like a variety of sports. They streamed boxing, MMA, PDC Darts, snooker and other forms of billiards, Cricket, Football aka soccer, basketball, baseball, F-1 racing and had a vast collection of archived events to choose from.

All that for $99 a year U.S. made it hard to pass up. But with the recent increase in yearly rates going up to $149 U.S. and the PPV of the fights they were streaming free in the beginning have definitely soured me to the point I cancelled my subscription.

But I look at it this way, I got my money's worth when I was a subscriber and have no regrets, but this last turn of events was just too much, and I'm out. No hard feelings as I enjoyed it for what it was and had fun while it lasted.

If you are not a current DAZN subscriber you will have to pay $US85 to watch Canelo-GGG.

Eddie Hearn is trying to validate the price by claiming this is the 'biggest fight in boxing' and that 'they are ready to give us one of the greatest fights of our generation.'

I hope you are right Eddie but I don't think you will be and I won't be paying $85 to find out.

Still showing $64.99 when I log on to DAZN while my subscription lasts. It is due for renewal on the 19th and I told them to cancel mine at that time.

GGG insists he's going to return to 160lb to defend his unified title, if true then it won't be long before someone takes it off him, he should retire at once, I was amazed to hear him talk about dropping back down in weight after this, that doesn't sound like an intelligent decision to me, I hope he sees sense before too long.

Stick a fork in him.

I didn't buy the PPV, so I've not seen the fight yet, but if his performance was anything like I've seen described in posts and press accounts of the fight, then he should hang them up.

From what I've read, it was a totally lackluster performance on his part and after watching him take all those body shots from Murata in his last fight, I figured Canelo would take his body and eventually KO him late in the fight.

So, it sounded like Canelo put in a sub-par performance himself in that bout that some have called a "real stinker".

GGG has a legacy in the sport as being one of the best, no sense in tarnishing it by hanging around too long and taking losses like so many before him have done.
