Mate, you had no problem with a draw last time, which was an actual robbery.Taansend wrote:As in all close fight people scream robbery when their bloke doesn't winNeville Bartos wrote:GGG shafted again. Golovkin won by a couple.
Compubox had GGG outlanding Alvarez again.
Seems as though the ginger drugs cheat is safe on the cards as long he's within 5 rounds of whoever he fights. Fuck boxing.
And Compubox is just a couple of blokes hitting a button when they think someone lands. It has fuck all bearing on scoring fights. None. One punch can be worth more than ten times other punches but they'd all be counted the same on Compubox.
Tellingly, Abel Sanchez had no problem with the decision.
I reckon if these blokes fought ten times you'd have ten close fights. I'd love to see a 3rd fight but away from Vegas because there will always be a stain in Vegas because of Byrds ridiculous scorecard in the first fight.
Saying that, Dave Moretti, one of the most respected judges out there who's judged around 1,000 fights over a 40+ year career, scored the first fight 115-113 to Golovkin & the same score for Canelo this time around.
He knows more about scoring fights than any of us armchair boys.
I don't know how you score fights, but how did Alvarez win that? Aggression? Shots landed? He had Golovkin in trouble? Volume of work?
It was a closer fight than the first, but that makes it worse, doesn't it?
As for us 'armchair boys', I think most of the time we're a sight more accurate than professional judges.
Fact is where GGG at absolute worst should have a win and draw against Alvarez he's got a draw and a loss. Alvarez gets the rub of the green EVERY fight. You'd need to be blind or corrupt to have given him 7 rounds in that fight.
