    It wasn't "outrage" worthy, but it smelt a little bit dodgy.

    117-112 on two cards is fucking bullshit, even if GGG did win
    I was there and I am never one to score rounds and I have a confirmation bias towards GGG. His jab was clean and effective and was used predominately through a good bit of the fight. GGG had the knockdown and a good part of the early rounds. But boy did the mood and momentum shift in the middle when Jacobs started to look good. But it didn't seem like he was landing as much as he threw. Maybe it was being there live and the crowd, but everytime Jacobs threw a combo the audience ate it up like it all landed but it seemed very little did. Jacobs clearly won a bunch of the middle rounds and the last few rounds were close and up for grabs. End of the fight I wouldn't have been too shocked if the hometown boy got the win. The crowd started the night 80/20 for GGG and by fight start it was 60/40. By mid fight it was 70/30 in favor of Jacobs.

    I was more shocked by the Chocolatito decision.

    I'm not one to overstate close decisions that go the opposite ways of my opinion. That fight wasn't one of those. I gave Golovkin three rounds. Maybe 4, if you give him the 12th, where not much happened. I thought it was an absolutely atrocious decision. Outside rounds 4 and 5, I'm not sure what Golovin accomplished.

    I've got to believe it is all the steady jab that disrupted Jacobs for the fight. But, I would have to watch it analytically and not as a fan to be sure. And of course the knockdown in the fourth.

    Interesting trivia note. If Jacobs would have won he wouldn't of won the IBF belt. The IBF requires a weigh in 24 hrs after the initial weigh in. If you are over 10 lbs from your weigh in you are out of contention. Jacobs declined the weigh in. He was likely over 10 lbs over his weigh in weight. He came in really big for the fight. I could see this weighing in on GGG in considering ever fighting Jacobs again. I would be less likely to fight a guy who came in that heavy. 30 days out Jacobs was also 10lbs heavier than GGG.

    Welp, GGG did throw and land more punches than Jacobs.
