Canelo definitely looks a lot less thick up top than previous fights but he's still got the big legs. Steroids or not, I think its gonna be a heck of a fight

The only worry for GGG's camp are the judges assigned in the fight because they will be there for canelo again but golovkin is determined to knocked the Mexican out this time.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;18989795]If Canelo wins this time he should get full credit for having done so cleanly. I don't want to hear anything more about Mexican meat. I expect you to be the first one to tip your hat and admit that…

[QUOTE=Boxing Scene;18990725]Canelo is more skilled than Golovkin. You have got to be kidding me. Step back and rethink what you just said.[/QUOTE] Canelo is more skilled AND more well-rounded..... with a better repertoire, and with a deeper bag of tricks.....…

[QUOTE=Superarms1;18990421]You are right Canelo is the guy who already lost to GGG while on the sauce. Plus you who he has been training since 12 weeks before May 5th. To also let GGG age.[/QUOTE]you need to rewatch the fight again…
