Why was Tyson Fury walking around holding Wilder's belt over his head like he just won it after fighting that random last night? also why did Wilder give it to him to do it?

GGG and canelo part 2 in the early hours. think trips will get the right result this time round though i'll be for canelo.

and speaking of part 2 fights, floyd has said he's coming out of retirement to fight pacquiao this year.
don't know about this. just let it go, if it was to happen it should have been done a couple years ago.

what a great fight. goes to the scorecards again. i'd call it a draw again ... it was closer than what others are saying anyway (4 rounds to ggg they're saying).

alvarez was very good.

A much closer, better fight.

Still find it hard to believe GGG didn't win it though.

A better Canelo + judges + Mexican Independence Day = No chance of GGG winning a decision.

GGG did nothing until the 8th, too many soft jabs I think Canelo definitely won this one.

i'm a conspiracy theorist and delve into david icke territory at times but that is one of the most cray cray i have ever heard.

canelo definitely edged it.

When it comes to boxing, is anything really beyond the realms of possibilty?

It would be interesting to know how close some of the rounds each fighter won actually were. I'd guess GGG's rounds were easier to call than most of Canelo's.

(and I'm more of a Canelo fan than a GGG fan)

I thought the 3rd and 4th were his rounds tbh.

No idea how valid a source it is (ESPN are quoting it though) but CompuBox has Golovkin outlanding Canelo in 8 of 12 rounds.

Obviously not the full story, but it's part of it.

Canelo landed 202/622, Golovkin 234/879. Which suggests GGG was also the busier fighter too.
