Sorry I missed what was apparently a good start, but I came on during the 6th and saw something memorable in the 7th.

I had Povetkin up 4-2 (same as Dan Rafaelís card) at the time of the stoppage. Good that AJ got the stoppage for the heavyweight divisionís sake, but he looked very vulnerable here.

Obviously AJ was troubled I don't think it was a total whitewash like I'm seeing on the reddit thread. Povetkin looked really gassed after 5 and-hindsight I know-I feel like you could've seen this coming after Joshua put in really good work in the 6th.

AJ fought like the plan was to let him gas and then pounce, which isnít a bad plan tbh

Well yea, but its risky as hell what with that heavy weight power that barely missed, if not landed a couple of times, particularly in that first round. Scary stuff.

shame Povetkin isn't a few years younger, he's a stylistic nightmare for both Joshua and Wilder (as in, he can actually box)

Am I not merciful?

That was fun to watch. First time I've seen Joshua look scared in the ring. Good mental strength to pull it back together. Sky sports commentary was fine but so repetitive. They must have called Povetkin a 'threat' at least 20,000 times.

Watching the GGG-Canelo rematch replay...you guys are awesome, but really it was a close fight. Golovkin had some dominant late rounds, but it's not like they were 10-8. The stylistic mixup causes too much dissonance. Why is GGG the persistent jabber? Why is Alvarez the forward fighter? Since when does the fighter landing more body punches get gassed late? The only obvious missed call was ANYONE that gave round 12 to Canelo. That's the one bullshit point I have. Overall 7-5 GGG but nah, I can't say it's a robbery. The ebb and flow reminded me of Hopkins-Taylor and Holmes-Spinks. There is no consensus on scoring.

It's only not a robbery if you ignore the context of the first fight, the events leading up to the second fight, Canelo's whole career and the economics of boxing. GGG got hustled out of his belts.

you donít have to have a bunch of 10-8s for it to be the wrong decision. golovkin won more rounds so shouldíve won is what it boils down to
