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.

Don’t Ruin This, Canelo!

Dammit, Canelo Álvarez! Say it ain’t so, son! Please tell me that Canelo isn’t just another juicer, man! All I know is, his positive drug test better NOT ruin the rematch between him and Gennady Golovkin! Real talk, boxing fans have been waiting for this matchup, fam. With that being said, we need to get to the bottom of this potential scandal ASAP!

Ok, for those who missed it, Canelo just popped hot for a performance-enhancing drug. Apparently, he tested positive for clenbuterol. Now, historically, this substance has been used as a weight-loss drug for bodybuilders and an enhancer for other athletes. Anyway, in response to his positive test, Canelo blamed contaminated Mexican meat. Listen, that may sound like a bunch of bullshit, but he may have a case, bruh. As a matter of fact, back in 2011, the Mexican national football team was also busted for clenbuterol. But, they were later acquitted after the World Anti-Doping Agency determined that the positive tests were caused by bad food.

Now, the problem is, there’s also a history of boxers using this substance fraudulently. For example, Érik Morales, Lucas Browne and Francisco Vargas all served suspensions for clenbuterol use. So, it’s a little hard for me to automatically believe Canelo’s story, son. In my eyes, him using drugs makes sense. I mean, he’s facing GGG, one of the hardest-hitting middleweights in history. Real talk, Canelo doesn’t want to get put on his ass. From that standpoint, he was probably looking for an extra boost, man. Either way, I still want to see this fight, fam.

In the end, Canelo better prove his case, bruh. Ultimately, if this fight gets cancelled, I may have to fight someone myself, son. By and by, I’m getting sick of all of these drug scandals in combat sports. At the end of the day, this nonsense always seems to delay/cancel the fights we want to see. *Sigh* Let’s just get to the boxing, folks! That is all. LC out.

What Fight Was Adalaide Byrd Watching?

So, it finally happened, son. The fight between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Álvarez finally happened, man. Now, even though the fight wasn’t the absolute bloodbath that some of us predicted, it was still an entertaining bout, fam. In any case, the result could definitely be debated, bruh. Even though I thought a draw was the right call, I wasn’t mad at people who thought GGG won. With that being said, what fight was Adalaide Byrd watching?! I mean, she scored the match 118-110 for Canelo. On the real, that’s one of the most absurd rulings I’ve seen in a long time, folks.

Now, before I get to Byrd’s fuckery, let me tell everyone how I judged the fight. From my perspective, Canelo started out strong. Keeping it a buck, I gave him the first two rounds. GGG looked like he was trying to figure Canelo out, so he wasn’t attacking like he normally would. In addition, I also gave Canelo the last three rounds. By then, it looked like he was fighting with a sense of urgency. He was throwing more combinations and not running as much. During those moments, he looked like he actually wanted some static.

Anyway, besides those five rounds, I gave GGG damn near all of the rounds in the middle. So, basically, he either won six or seven of those rounds, depending on perspective. Frankly, he was just hunting Canelo around the ring and hitting him with the jab at will. Also, none of Canelo’s shots hurt him in the slightest. Shit, look at this clip, fam. He ate Canelo’s best shot and just kept on stalking, bruh. Listen, GGG is a fucking machine, son!

Moving on, let’s get back to Byrd, man. Now, in order for her to judge the fight 118-110, she had to believe that Canelo won 10 out of the 12 rounds. Man, get thee FUCK outta here! There is NO WAY in Hell that Canelo won 10 rounds! By the numbers, GGG landed more punches AND he was chasing Canelo around the ring. On top of that, Canelo didn’t throw enough combinations to really steal any of those rounds. All in all, he wasn’t that aggressive, son. Look, a fighter can’t run AND not throw enough punches, man! Real talk, Canelo didn’t do enough to decisively win that fight.

In the end, I’m glad that the Nevada Athletic Commission is benching Byrd. Look, she simply doesn’t need to judge another big fight, son. Ultimately, her score was a travesty, fam. By and by, it ruined an otherwise good night for boxing, bruh. *Sigh* Way to go, Byrd! LC out.
