I score this fight differently every single time I watch it. In the first couple rounds, while GGG was throwing more jabs, Canelo was landing better shots and showing superior defensive skills. Around Round 4, it seemed as if GGG got, or kept, his energy, while Canelo seemed to tire. Canelo's arms looks heavier and slower. He landed some good punches, but he would get hit 3-to-1 in the exchanges. GGG gained momentum from the mid rounds, except for the one Round Canelo gave his last burst of energy. But if Canelo could have kept his pace throughout the fight, he may could have won. I can still see how some saw a draw, but again, by no means did Canelo win this fight. He may have shown better defense. And he out-boxed GGG in many rounds. And it is noteworthy to point out that Canelo has fought most of his career in a weight class that is nearly 15 pounds lighter than GGG. The very first Amateur Event I competed in (I boxed at 141 and 152 lbs); but this event had no one in either of those divisions, nor the next one up, at 165. So I could have gotten a trophy by not losing, but not fighting. But I wanted to fight, so I had to enter as a Light Heavyweight, 178 lbs! I had speed and defense, so I somehow won via decisions to get into the Finals, where I fought my first southpaw. Needless to say, I got my a** handed to me. When he would throw a lead hook, it was so powerful that it would easily throw my guard away from my face, and when he followed through, his elbow would graze my eye/cheek. At this time, I had no "one on one" trainer; but rather the gym's generic corner (who didn't know what they were doing). I somehow made it to the final round before the ref stopped it due to bleeding (my corner had no clue how to work cuts). Regardless, even though I never hit the mat, blocking punches from someone that much bigger and stronger than me took its toll of me. The point of my story is that I don't think Canelo was used to fighting guys as strong as GGG, and that's why GGG ran away with it as the fight progressed. So again, the first rounds looked as if Canelo may be able to beat GGG. But I remember thinking, this is familiar, Canelo was getting wore down by a strong man. And that why he lost. GGG kept his pace from 1 to 12. Canelo started by building steam, only to burn out, with one last burst toward the end. I'm sure Mrs. Byrd got a fat envelope to judge it the way she did, so the chance for a controversial rematch would definitely happen!!

I agree, the natural size of Golovkin was difficult for Canelo in rounds 4-9, he didn't want to engage, so he tried to be mobile, counter, not let Golovkin get in range, and it worked for a lot of the time, but he didn't do enough work, Canelo, to win the fight, and Golovkin used his jab, used that amateur pedigree, knew how to keep Canelo on his toes.

Byrd was disgraceful, Canelo thinks he won 8-4 I believe, that's obviously inaccurate because he was lucky to get a draw, but when a judge gives a fighter more than he gives himself, you that judge is garbage.

Who you got in the rematch?
