    Glad to be back on CF. Was gone since the SB due to Computer crimes by others.

    Looking forward to seeing GGG the real undefeated Middle Weight Champion. Most with a brain are not buying the robberies perpetrated by Golden Showers Promotions and Canelo.

    This should be a statement fight by GGG. I predict a savage KO before round 6.

    Glad that GGG switched trainers. Its always good to switch up trainers at the elite level. Banks had success with Wlad by instilling new techniques. I understand he has worked with GGG by instilling more combinations. Can't wait to see the new twists this Saturday.

    GGG, true Champ, and sportsman.

    As we saw last weekend nobody can be taken for granted but Rolls seems to be a true ESPN level fighter and GGG has shown that his slippage has been minimal so far in his career.

    As for Banks I have my reservations as he seemed to calm when Wlad had to up his work rate against Fury or when he had Joshua in a similar situation to what Ruiz had him in last weekend. I remember Steward swearing a blue streak at Wlad for being too complacent when he had an opponent ready to go but Wlad was looking for the perfect punch to ko him.

    Good to have you back Westside. I had a problem a long time ago and couldn't get on CF. My actual join date is 2006 and I had several hundred posts. All disappeared and I couldn't access the site for quite a while. Don't know what the problem was.

    I think this fight is on that DAZN, whatever that is. I don't know about this app stuff. My next app I download will be my first. Hope I can catch the fight somehow even though I'm sure Rolls is going to get rocked. That's what he was signed up for.

    Rolls doesn't have any wins over anyone I've ever heard of and about half of his opponents had losing records. I don't expect him to have much to offer to GGG. This is definitely a fight to keep GGG busy while they figure out his next move.

    I don't like catchweight fights. It tells me both fighters are not in peak physical conditions. In this fight, it might not mean anything. Anything is possible in boxing however look back to Ruiz vs Joshua nobody saw that coming or I sure didn't.

    For what it's worth DAZN is supposed to be pronounced DA-ZONE. o_O

    I looked at their line up. A lot of good marquee fights. It may be worth $100.00 for a year of fights. I will probably purchase a membership.

    GGG had to dust off some rust after being out of the ring so long. But when he it did, GGG showed his utter dominance. Highlight Reel KO of a rugged fighter who showed he was not going to lay down in the preceding rounds. Next up the final fight between GGG and Canelo. Canelo has evolved into an elite fighter, but GGG won the last two fights. Hopefully, September 2019 will settle who is the best 160 lbs, King.

    Rolls appeared game, but ultimately had no chance. Just like many fighters GGG has faced....they get a few decent rounds in and then in an instant, GGG starts throwing vicious shots and they are out of there. Canelo really is something else to have been able to walk through those shots. GGG now clearly knows he will have to stop Canelo to get a win if they fight a third time!

    This Ababy kid is kind of a whigger, but damn, can he punch.

    All of the Raptor, Blues, Ruiz karma couldn't help Rolls once GGG got rolling.
    I will say this Rolls wasn't a total stiff as he gave GGG a good workout until the fateful combinations in the 4th round.

    PS, I'm not sure GGG gets Pednelo as Golden Shower productions stated for him to beat somebody after that ko win, without a PPV option there really isn't an incentive to walk through fire for the third time for the same flat fee as facing a Fielding type.

    GGG attacking with laser-like precision on Rolls...Body shots; then Top of the head to set up the brutal KO!

    GGG BEAT Canelo (yeah PEDnelo) in 1st Fight ..7 or 8 rounds easily .....& maybe a Draw the 2nd Fight. I'm a big GGG fan & was disappointed he could not put away Canelo...even with the aid of clenbuterol.
