I missed the fight (what else is new?)

 

How is that not an automatic stoppage. That is brutal. Literally looks like he got clawed by a tiger.

 

This feeding was posted after the fight. LOL!

 

Anybody got the DAZN app? Only caught the co-main and main event. Both were action packed. Xu Can vs Jesus Rojas and Munguia vs Inoue. 

Thought Inoue would be an easy KO victim. He has a chin and just kept coming after Munguia like he was the Terminator. His skills are lacking, but his chin, power and relentlessness were on full display. 

 

Also, Thurman vs Lopez on Fox was good. Lots of rust on Thurman. Dropped Lopez in the 2nd and couldn't finish him. Lopez hurt Thurman late and had him running big time. Ring rust was a factor, but not sure if he's ready for a 40-year old Manny yet. Bud Crawford or Spence will destroy him based on what I saw last night.

Spence is beating the hell out of Garcia.

 

all credit to Garcia for making the jump, but he catching one tonight. His chin has held up great, Errol has hit him with some really good shots and Mikey hasn't buckled yet.

Spence also sounded off on George Foreman, Sugar Ray Leonard and others in the post fight press conference and Twitter.

Reminds me of Crawford - Benavidez from a few months ago.

 

If you're gonna style on dudes, it's important to not get dropped while doing it.

He's not wrong. Khan quit. He didn't even take the full 5-minutes allowed for the accidental foul. He was looking for an excuse out of the fight no matter what he says.

Khan never should have been in that fight to begin with

 

Arum's hypocrisy afterwards was hilarious. Blaming haymon for not giving fans the fight they want to see, but he essentially did the same **** destroying the wilder/fury rematch

http://www.espn.com/boxing/story/_/id/26639543/trash-talking-place-boxing-not-canelo-jacobs

 

Jacobs, who called his opponent "top-10, pound-for-pound" and a "true champion with superstar status," has been matched by Alvarez, whose commentary on the fight has focused on Jacobs' talent.

 

"He's an opponent that is very complete," Alvarez said through an interpreter. "He knows how to move in the ring. Very difficult. We know the risk of this fight, and it is a high-risk fight."

 

There was no shoving at any of their news conferences. No naughty words. No hostility. In fact, it has been the exact opposite: complete respect and the feeling that they could easily be friends.

very few things can match the feeling of big time competitively matched boxing fight

 

I think Jacobs can present some problems for Canelo with his handspeed

I agree...and I’m gonna put my money where my mouth is at about 3 to 1.

I’ve talked myself into a scenario where Jacobs shows extremely well and they throw him a bone to set up the big $$$ rematch.

 

Kinda silly, I know.

Jacob's not winning a decision unless he totally dominates a la Mayweather.  Even then 1 judge tried to give it to Canelo. Jacobs has been dropped by lesser guys. I'll take Canelo by UD or late TKO. 

 

Hope I'm wrong, but can't see Danny getting a fair decision.

Canelo has an underrated defense, his head movement has always been on point. gotta be frustrating for his opponents. couple that with one of the better chins in boxing and you really need a disciplined plan to outbox him over 12 rounds

 

Jacobs is not out of the fight, but its definitely Canelo's style of fight at the moment

Brian Kenny got his marching orders from DAZN

judges did better than the commentators

 

115-113 x2

116-112

 

all for Canelo

I don't think it was that close. Thought Jacobs would have given a better showing, but Canelo was just better.
