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.
