    I believe this September GGG and Canelo will fight for the undisputed Middleweight Championship. It will be an off the chart fight. Explosive with multiple knock downs of both fighters. GGG, however, will be victorious with a late round KO.

    I wish that were true. Canelo refuses to fight Golovkin at 160 pounds and claims he's not a true middleweight when he weighs 170 pounds plus once in the ring. He seems to be making any excuse not to get in there with GGG. Interesting side note, Darnell Boone, who has fought bought Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev is Gennadys sparring partner . He says Golovkin can beat both of them..

    In every video and image of Wade he looks defeated and the fight is yet to be. Get a coffin ready.

    I would love to see this fight too; I like your prediction and likely outcome, thought I'm not so certain Canelo can knock GGG down. I think it would take a horse kick to the head to knock GGG down.

    Saw the weigh in. Wade looks soft around the midsection. Maybe he mailed it in. Damn, I love GGG's seek and destroy with subtle foot work. He is the best at closing off the ring and walking down an opponent. Simply breathtaking.

    Love to watch GGG work. One of the most ducked fighters in history. I'm not a boxing insider. Never been, just a fan. How does a fighter duck another?
    I can imagine a few techniques. Not return phone calls. Make outrageous money demands. Choose lesser fighters to schedule. Claim he's not a big money name. Fake an injury.

    Props to Wade for not ducking and giving us a chance to see GGG do his thing.

    Bet $10 with a Mexican I know. Easy work for GGG and easy money for me.

    Ill be watching this fight live and will give my thoughts once it concludes.

    As for GGG-Canelo. Canelo doesnt seem to want that fight or more precisely his management is trying to avoid it. And theyre right. GGG would ruin him. I dont think it would be a close fight at all. Maybe Canelo wins 1 or 2 rounds, but GGG stops him within 8. Itd be a repeat of the Lemieux fight.

    Canelo's reasons for avoiding GGG have no validity. Last I heard he demanded GGG fight him at 155 lbs. Canelo has a 160 lb belt of some so the logical question then is why does he have a middleweight belt if hes not willing to fight at 160? Its like a heavyweight champ who demands to fight at 201 lbs. If he really feels that way he should vacate the belt and fight at 154.

    PS) Always makes me laugh to see GGG. How old is he? I think hes around 32. From his appearance he looks like he's 17 years old. He looks like a boy. Would still probably get ID'd to walk into a bar, lol.

    That was a nice appetizer by Choclatito. He is a complete fighter. Sort a like a mini GGG. The main event should be up in 15 mins.

    the most common is to make outrageous purse demands.

    Wade mailed it in. He knew he would lose. Soft around the middle, even Jones said it. He just wanted that 500,000 dollars and the shorter the fight the better. GGG gave him good reason to stay down. Worthless fighter.

    Man GGG is so awesome :)

    Loved his ring entrance, he came out to "Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes. I wonder if that's going to be his song now, just like "Can't Stop" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers was Wlad's. I was watching the fight on a British feed and they said his robe is made in Kazakhstan and is made of velvet and swan down, man that's pretty fcuking cool I thought!

    As for the fight, it was a "flawless brutal execution", GGG got his jab going immediately and within about 90 seconds of the fight Wade was rocked. In round 2, dropped by an uppercut and then KO'd by a right hand that landed flush and perfectly. GGG is as good at middleweight as Wladimir was at heavyweight. GGG has been champ since 2010, that's 6 years now, and in all honesty I can't see anyone around who would even be comptitive with him.

    GGG will easily KO Canelo, Jacobs, Saunders, Eubank Jr, Chudinov, who ever else they can feed to him at middleweight. Canelo maybe has a chance to last more than 8 rounds, the other guys won't even last 6. GGG is just too god damn good. I think he can realistically be middleweight champion for another 5 years and possibly longer. He could break the record for # of defenses at the weight (currently held by Hopkins 25, GGG has 17), and I believe he will.

    GGG is definitely the best middleweight of this generation and may go down as the best middleweight of alltime. He is leagues above anyone else at the weight.

    Triple GGG has the highest knockout percentage of any middleweight in the history of the division. He is by far the best
    middleweight that I've ever seen in my life!

    All the GGG haters are all of one single demographic. Absolutely amazing and they call whites racist. I would like to see him fight Daniel Jacobs next.

    Ah, what can be said about GGG? He closed the gap with precise steps, saw openings, fired into openings, landed accurately , collapsed his opponent, and avoided almost all incoming. The only type of boxer that may beat him is one taller, lankier, more skilled, and with a chin as good as his; or, someone as good if not better at what he does. Far as I know Harry Greb bin dead before I was.

    He may only lose to a bigger man who out foxes him and can take his power. I can't see anybody at 160 pounds beating him in the immediate future. His power is frightening, it's almost like he is a cruiserweight allowed to fight at middleweight.

    Ps. Jacobs has been the mandatory for over a year now and has never said a peep about forcing a title shot for the real WBA belt. Jacobs knows unless he gets lucky bum rushing GGG similar to the Quillan fight he is losing the fight and is probably taking a ten second or longer nap for his troubles.

    Baby face assassin. It must be unnerving for an opponent to watch an Alfred E. Neumann (Mad Magazine) look-a-like coming at you with 2 sledgehammers Bwahahahahahah!!!

    Just another *** who got his noggin rocked by the nog whisperer! A delicious dish of Whup Ass served up by the Kazakhstan Steppe Son. I hear GGG likes take-out Mexican food, you hear that Canoodling Canelo, you red-headed soon to be steppe-sister!
    Next!!!

    Check out this video of GGG counter punching technique broken down and analyzed.
    Wilson Kayden who produced this and many other boxing videos is fantastic at revealing the sweet science of boxing.
    Enjoy!

    Over at ESB, Shane Mosely says Canelo vs GGG will take place 9-17-16! The story has a very drunk looking pic of Shane, maybe their being coy. LOL
