    I was a bit disappointed with this fight. I expected some more hard-hitting action. Mind you....I got pretty wasted last night and don't remember much of the fight. I have a 24 hour window to re watch it so I am going to check it out again later this afternoon.
    I want to score it myself with a clear head.

    After watching it again..I still wish Alvarez would have traded with GGG a bit more, but you have to give Canelo credit for his counter punching which was pretty effective at times.
    I scored it 115- 112 for Golovkin.
    It was a good fight that definitely warrants a rematch. This is likely the beginning of a trilogy. I guess I am just disappointed that there were no knockdowns and no really tense moments where either fighter got rocked.
    The one judge who scored it 118 - 110 ?
    That is baffling.
    Anyways. I will definitely tune in for a rematch between these two.

    Wouldn't she be more subtle then?

    A bit late to the party but I thought GGG won by 2 rounds. I'm a great admirer of Canelo and he's very adept at evading strikes and more skilled than some realise. Even so, I thought it was Golokin who took the laurels. I wasn't disappointed by the Draw though, oddly, I don't think I wanted either to lose.
