    With the MSM looking for excuses to say Jacobs won, tells me one thing. It's open season on straight White men. No matter what, the objective is to marginalize and belittle and trash white men. We have a yuge fight in front of us.

    Another vile libtard site USAToday believes Jacobs won? Won't ever buy a copy of that bird cage liner again. Read their article of the fight. So off the mark and so much lying. God, I hate the white self-loather establishment.

    I didn't see the fight but the DWFs and Fightnews.com are saying Jacobs won. 99 percent of all blacks are as well.

    GGG didn't utterly demolish Jacobs, which was disappointing, but he still clearly won in convincing fashion. He was the aggressor and was never at any point endangered by Jacobs, let alone hurt. Meanwhile Jacobs was pressured the whole fight and generally in retreat. He was constantly forced to follow the pace dictated by Golovkin and was clearly staggered or in danger of getting knocked down numerous times, and of course he was actually knocked down in the fourth.

    To hear Jacobs tell it, he deserved the win, LOL. Typical sour grapes. Wearing dark glasses at the post fight to hide how blacked up his eyes were.

    Jacobs' major accomplishment in this fight is that he went the distance and didn't get knocked out. Considering that he weighed probably fifteen or more pounds more than Golovkin, is taller and has a farther reach, this isn't so surprising. The fact that he skipped the final weigh in and didn't get tested for drugs as hardcore as Golovkin did are also points against him.

    GGG came to Jacobs' home country and convincingly defeated him. But you know how the DWFs are; even if GGG utterly knocked the guy unconscious, they'd be saying GGG was on PEDs to do it or shom sh*t.

    I know by reading caste members posts that ya'll are knowledgeable fight fans. I just want to say the best way to watch a HBO fight is with the sound off,because listening to the same lies over and over for 48 minutes you believe the announcers who are calling the fight .They are paid lackeys for HBO who never liked a white fighter in 40 years of showing fights.

    Most media people had Golovkin winning. Dan Rafael scored it 115-112 for GGG.

    However, John Rawling's commentary on BoxNation was disgustingly biased in favor of Jacobs. He always sounds like he has a homosexual attraction to black fighters.

    I saw a piss poor pirate feed yesterday that froze at the point of the knockdown and frequently froze during the fight(the audio was clear though), so I decided to score the fight off of a download and my scorecard was a draw(maybe I gave too much credit to Jacobs in tight rounds). GGG had the better work but in many of the rounds he just didn't throw enough and let Jacobs score with shoe shine amateur style combinations. So the robbery calls are idiots or people with agendas.

    I'm glad that GGG got "benefit of the doubt" in the close rounds, and after the semifinal I was worried that judges were going to give all of the marginally close rounds to Jacobs and he would have won a decision similar to the semifinal which I though Choclatito won narrowly.

    Ps Rawlings and his mini parrot had Jacobs winning a fairly comfortable decision, both commentators should just announce and keep their scoring to themselves as both showed that they probably can't accurately score fights as they have had these type of ideas in previous close fights.

    Really? I just viewed the replay. I gave Jacobs only rounds 6, 7 and 11th rounds. Score: 116-110 GGG. Easy fight for GGG. GGG was scoring all night with his piston type jab, snapping Jacobs' head throughout the fight. Also, most of Jacobs' punches were blocked or hit GGG's elbows/shoulders.

    I scored the 3rd round even and had a nagging idea that if I gave that to GGG it could be an unrealistic blowout. So I should have had him winning 114-113. Yes I did see blocking of the body punching combinations. But the problem for me was actually seeing all of the blocking of the shoe shine combos, the television angles weren't the greatest. That's the reason(besides corruption) why judging can be wildly all over the place as judges only see one angle.

    I noticed when GGG was hitting Jacobs against the ropes many times we only saw the back of Jacobs head and missed the real impact of the blows.

    Maybe since the average viewer in North America is dropping 80 bucks on the fight your PPV feed could come with the option to view all of the camera angles that the editing booth doesn't show so that the viewer can see the best angle for every good punch or combination. I know this technology is now available.

    My computer has been buggy since about Friday. I was prepared to drive to watch the fight at bar in my area or drive in to Toronto but I was wary of how could I enjoy myself and stay sober or face getting potentially popped for a DUI, also the cab fares to and fro would be almost as much as ordering the PPV. So I got lucky and watched the crap feed and stayed with it.

    Take an Uber or Lyft next time, they cost only about half as much as a cab fare.

    Believe it or not but Uber isn't legal in my jurisdiction and the business would be slow anyway. I also don't have a smart phone but in theory you only need a computer to book a ride. As far as I know Uber drivers can bring a ride out to my area but they can't legally pick one up. Public transportation is god awful where I live so that really isn't an option either, that's the only draw back of living outside a major metropolitan area.

    Ps I was listening to the morning show in Buffalo and that city doesn't have Uber because of red tape and people can wait up to 1 hour for a cab ride. The announcers were talking about tourists were shocked that there was no Uber and how slow cabs were in Buffalo while they were in town for the NCAA first weekend.

    R U in Canadia or Buffalo? I think maybe Uber isn't legal in some cities in NY like Buffalo because of the cabby hack license lobby in NYC, but that's just an uneducated guess on my part. I drove a yellow cab in NYC on the night shift when I was in college...and later on I worked for the younger brother of Buffalo's police chief, Russi, also in NYC (nice guy). On the other hand I've never rode a Uber. You're not supposed to tip Uber drivers, right?

    I live in Canada a small town near the border. It's banned in my region(county).

    The legality of Uber or Lyft is largely due to the pull of various cab companies in the jurisdiction you live in. I know Toronto had politicians that had plates that directly voted in favor of the cab companies. It was only in the last year or so that these corrupt puppets retired and other politicians took their places.

    The whole cab business is a seedy as fu*&$. Cab companies use every angle to force drivers to pay shylock rates for simple things like radio fees and repairs to the vehicles. With the advent of Uber the gray legality of these business practices are near dead as a driver can just get a 6 year old car on the road and avoid this bs.

    I just looked it up, WIR, and it says that a taxi medallion in NYC was going for a million $ a year ago but is now down to 500K because of the comp from Uber and Lyft (Good thing I didn't buy one). PS Use Uber not Lyft because the former is pro Trump and the latter is anti Trump.

    My final point on this as we are way off topic, yes in all major metropolitan areas plates that can be bought and sold on the open market have dropped dramatically in market value. In Toronto a plate could be had for the price of a working class house (before Uber came on the scene). Now they have plummeted to 90K plus a used vehicle(as of a few months ago), Chicago was a similar price. In perspective 25ish years ago the plates were in the low 100's and were worth a condominium in Toronto.

    I actually see the plates plunging further in value as cabbies that rent a cab still make chicken scratch and the class of passenger in general is much worse. More low lives that are broke that will bolt and flee when the cab stops and a saturation of low life robbers.

    If you need a working credit/debit card and access to a computer/smart phone that precludes most low lives from using your service.

    I wonder if GGG prefers Uber or Lyft? Inquiring minds want to know. But, I guess he has enough snaps to summon a f'n limousine.
