    It was a great fight. Alvarez had the first 6 GGG had the last. Not sure how one judge gave round 12 to canelo... but that was the only thing preventing a tie. Viva Mexico!

    Being there, here were my thoughts. I thought it was close, but I also thought GGG won. But I can't say GGG was robbed because I did think it was close.

    In the 12th, I had the impression Canelo thought he was down. GGG had just killed him in the 10th and 11th. The 10th was the only round either fighter even seemed close to a knock out and GGG was just too gassed to follow up on a few punishing combos. So Canelo came out in the 12th throwing some wild big punches. It was another close round (like a lot of them) and I actually thought Canelo won that round. I thought four rounds were clearly for GGG and two rounds clearly went for Canelo. But that left half the fight with very close rounds. So I cannot say I am surprised some judges gave enough of those rounds to Canelo. Still, I had a large bet, so I am disappointed.

    Also, I do wonder how much the pro Canelo Vegas crowd impacts the judges? I am not saying it did. But the crowd was about 70% for Canelo and they were loud from about the fourth round onward

    @UKFanatic it was close , but all the experts say GGG won the fight ,I saw Stephen A Smith now on sportcenter saying the same thing as me and Teddy Atlas too ,Robbed is the wrong word , but they gave a typical Vegas decision the wrong man won , Go get em today , and make your money back on Bacc ,Have a good day man.

    I agree GGG should have won. But it was close and that's what happens when you put it in the hands of judges.

    The right man won. It was a close fight and GGG hit him with his best punch in the 10th but didn't come close to putting him down. Canelo was gassed for the late rounds after outscoring him big-time on power punches. GGG let the 12th round slip away or it would've been a draw. Very good fight. Canelo has to Pace himself better and then it's not even close. GGG needs to start a little better in the first 4 to 5 rounds. He can't put Canelo down though.Poor Teddy Atlas....he lost his lunch money I guess along with Mayweather.
