    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.

    I was just playing around with Theend, I know he doesn't care for MMA and he thinks boxers are far superior fighters, even though I disagree with him doesn't mean I think any less of him. I love boxing but it's only 1 phase of combat(and only 1 of many dimensions of that phase, only allowed to utilize a quarter of the 8 weapons of the human body), there are 2 whole other phases of combat that are not even allowed in boxing, to say that the boxing match going head to head with UFC last night was the real best fighters in the world is pretty bold statement, one that I disagree with. I appreciate and enjoy boxing for the science that it is but If you can't fight on the ground you can't fight. DC would get destroyed against either of these guys in a boxing match but he would ground both of them and dominate them in a real fight. My opinion. Sorry that there was no point and sorry for being dismissive mr. high and mighty Todd, I am not worthy of your heavenly prim and proper perfect posting etiquette in such a highly esteemed establishment such as this ethereal pro wrestling forum. Please please forgive me.

    no worries. I am a huge mma fan in general. sadly though I have fallen off. Just due to the oddity that MMA is best socially as televised entertainment and for whatever reason I can always watch boxing. Even alone on a dessert isle.

    Boxing draws global talent and has a huge pool to pull that talent up from. MMA is more a fad phenomenon in the terms of talent. That is why I say the best in the world. Lomachenko has over 400 fights. No one in MMA can come close to that. It just isn't that developed and the craft doesn't get refined without that development.

    Part of it is because unified boxing is 100 yrs old. Part of it is the money. A big part of it is just popularity and structure. When MMA can create global talent like a card with 3 Ukranian fighters on it, then we can see real depth of talent. You can already see it other activities that are the same age as MMA but MMA just can't pull out the talent for whatever reason.
    .
    Shin probably knows that I am a deep student of the whole fight game more than many here.

    Time is near for one of the all time greatest heavyweights to possibly reclaim his throne. Klitschko fights this weekend. I find it interesting how razor thin the precipice of boxing can be. If he loses this fight many are saying it could be over for Klitschko. That is comical as he would have only lost two fights in a row. He doesn't have much of a size advantage going into this fight. His opponent has KO power but he has very little experience. Could be an interesting passing of a torch and a sad day for the heavyweight division. Or a great rise of the elder statesman of boxing to show his cagy veteran skills.
