I like Floyd and never really saw him lose but to deny that is crazy man. Come on lol.
The problem is that Vegas has one protected superstar per era--not what ethnicity that protected superstar is.

I think there is some truth in that. Floyd was favored because he was 'hated', Canelo because he is 'loved' imo.

But Vegas has its home fighters just like almost anywhere else. Some a little more protected than others.

But as far as scoring fights goes I try and go with what I see, and I feel like 95% of the time there is 1 winner in a fight. And unfortunately that guy doesn't win 19/20 fights on the judges' cards. And not all of those fights are in Vegas :0

Just was making the point to that guy that it was ironic to see someone complaining about Canelo getting favorable cards, which is indisputable imo, because he is Mexican and not black, and neglecting to mention that Floyd was a superstar there and got his share there as well, and is obviously black.

As have a few other non-Mexican/black fighters (Ward/Kov 1 comes to mind and was in Vegas, and even the cards in Ward/Kov 2 were favorable to Ward before the stoppage).

And we all know what happened in those fiascos.

If you sign up to fight Canelo in Vegas, you know that unless you knock him out for 20 minutes, you can't win.
We agree here. Not sure how anyone could find close to 7 rounds for Jacobs. That fight was pretty straightforward as far as scoring goes anyway and was basically over after 8-9 rounds on the cards.

iirc I had it
1 - close but nick for GGG
2 - same but for Danny
3 - clearer for GGG
4 - GGG
5- GGG
6- Danny
7 - close
8 - GGG
9 - GGG
10 - Danny
11 - close
12 - always hard for me to score 12th rounds as I feel they are just all heart, but most feel GGG.

Split the close rounds and that is 8-4. Not sure how one could argue Danny did nearly enough to take the belts from GGG in that one.

Yeah I had it 8-4, pretty straightforward. Danny showed a lot of heart and survived imo but that doesn't get you the belts and a W
