    If Kovalev's stamina gave out in the 11th round, this shows that this fight was too soon after the Yarde fight. His camp should have insisted the fight be in December instead of November, to give him more time to recover. The lure of $12 million was evidently too much to resist, and he got suckered into the early date.

    Canelo of course is going to pay the price medically down the road for his steroid use.

    I will say Kovalev didn't seem gutted, as they would say in Britain, over the loss. Could be he knew going in that he was faded. And 12 million is 12 million.

    Personally think Kovalev was shot and ya 12 million in this point in his career is more than nice.

    This is probably a big sticking point for a rubber match with GGG, for pr reasons PEDnelo had to fight GGG after he failed the PED test for "tainted meat", but he really doesn't want to have to cut back on his PED protocol for a rubber bout as that can affect hormone levels and leave your body off. I know this was why Mosley and Jones were shot after the Balco bust because they lost their connection to PED's.

    It never fails! Every time I really start rooting for a team or individual athlete I jinx them. Kovalevs loss is my fault. I apologize sincerely.
    From here on out I’m rooting for the little Irishman from Mexico....Colin O’Alverez! Yes I know they say he’s a Mexican but it’s obvious that he is adopted. Inasmuch as there are only 2 races basically...caucasoid and *******... he’s much closer to the former than the latter. We’ll see how my support affects him here on out. Viva La Irishman!
