What a joke. GGG 100% won that fight.

This is why boxing is so frustrating to follow and the UFC is light years ahead at this point. Idk how judges aren't immediately fired for having the fight 118-110 Canelo. Clowns.

Good fight. One egregious scorecard. I'll be happy if they do the rematch quickly.

Watched the whole fight yesterday. I think Gena won: he attacked constantly, he threw more punches out and he looked better in general. I mean he hardly took a step back in the whole 12 rounds! That judge must have been watching some other fight. What a way to have your record spoiled. 38-0 would definitely look better than 37-0-1.

Lomachenko is quite a machine. And he did not even dance as he can!

Agreed. He needs to move up to 135 and face Mikey Garcia or Jorge Linares. He'd be giving up size but I bet his speed would play up and I want to see if his power carries up to that weight class. Mikey Garcia might be too big for No-Mas-chenko but I would want to see it

Definitely be interesting to see how he can hang moving up. Seems like a lot of people putting Loma-Garcia as a 50/50 fight.

I think this is his plan to move up in weight. We will see how that works out; I pretty sure it will though.

Garcia was trying to fight Cotto in his retirement fight and that would have been at 154 - not sure if Mikey can still make weight at 135, but I assume he will if he wants to test Loma.
It might be one of those fights where there is no loser regardless of outcome. I hope it happens.
