My Thoughts On Canelo, GGG & People Who Don’t ‘Understand’ Boxing

So, here we are, son. Another fight between Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez and Gennady Golovkin and another controversial decision, man. Now, I won’t lie, fam. This fight was close as fuck, bruh. Look, even though I had GGG winning, I can legitimately see an argument for the fight being a draw. Side note, that would be a REAL draw. Not that bullshit they pulled in the first fight, people. Listen, GGG won their first contest, don’t @ me, bro. In any case, today’s post isn’t about the match, per se. It’s more so about the trolls who can’t engage in a civil debate, folks.

Now, anytime there’s a fight, there’s always going to be a post-fight argument, son. No matter who a person is rooting for, if that fighter loses, folks are going to claim it’s a “robbery.” Real talk, that’s just the nature of the game, man. The problem is, anytime someone has a different opinion about a fight’s outcome, they get accused of not “understanding” the sport. No, bitch, we just have a different fucking opinion, fam! Shit, the last time I checked, we’re allowed to have a differing viewpoint, bruh.

Look, for better AND for worse (mostly worse), boxing is a subjective sport, son. Meaning, two people can watch the same exact thing and reach a different conclusion, man. For me, Canelo had no answer for GGG’s jab. But, Canelo was also more accurate with his power punches. All in all, I thought GGG won seven rounds to five. Frankly, it all came down to the 12th round and I gave that one to GGG. Regardless, I can see an argument for the final round being too close to call and the fight being a draw. Hell, that’s just the type of bout it was, fam.

In the end, I have to give Canelo his credit, bruh. Ultimately, he stood toe-to-toe with GGG and squeaked out a close decision. By and by, I have no idea how there weren’t any knockdowns, son. For God‘s sake, they were throwing bombs at each other, man. Anyway, I’m always going to look at Canelo sideways for his failed drug tests. However, he fought a good fight, fam. At the end of the day, the judges screwed GGG again and he’s still the REAL Middleweight champion. Sadly, I highly doubt the powers that be (*cough* Oscar De La Hoya *cough*) will give GGG another shot at Canelo. I mean, Álvarez is the cash cow, folks. *Sigh* Such is boxing, people. That is all. LC out.
