Golovkin vs Canelo. The hangover. What a beautiful fight! But the judges and politics and corruption had to screw up everything! Golovkin won that fight! Here’s Manny’s thoughts on a match that was so close to being a classic! It’s time for a Corruption and Ethics watchdog in boxing! Time for drug tests, physicals and psych evaluations for judges! Yes, you heard right! Let’s get serious! Check it out:
“I was at a wedding and it was something to see so many people huddled around smart phones, watching these two warriors go at it. Not bad for a dying sport. And these people were excited, they were enjoying it, but in the end they were reminded how boxing has disappointed them. What could have been a great night for the sport ended up being marred by the problem we just can’t seem to get rid of.
In my opinion, Golovkin commanded that ring last night and Canelo had nowhere to go. Even though Alvarez at times landed the cleaner blows, he was outworked and cornered at will. He demonstrated his skills, countering beautifully, boxing well in the center of the ring, but his work wasn’t enough to deserve a victory. That said, it was close but that one scorecard is nothing short of outrageous. So, once again, another great fight overshadowed by bad judging. What else is new?” — From “The Day After”
