You know we're theorizing how the Canelo GGG fight could go, but what if it turns out to be an all out war like Hagler Hearns. OMG! I think both fighters have it in them. GGG especially. You know when GGG gets hit and nods and smiles

On other and more exciting new, Thurman v Garcia is happening next year on March 4: http://www.espn.com/boxing/story/_/id/17885018/show-announces-five-fight-cards-including-two-world-title-unification-fights
Lots of good match-ups next year too:
He really should just fight against against good opponents or just stay retired.
And while he did make a lot of money and dude is set for life, you also go to keep in mind that Arum got most of the dudes earnings.
Watched the Ortiz Scott heavyweight fight. What a bore! Can I get those minutes of my life back? Honestly, lost interest after a few rounds. Had it on in the background. Some comical highlights:
-Scott didn't have a mini stool in his corner. His team brought in, what looked like, those tall blackjack aluminum stools. They had to bring it OVER the ropes. Took a long time, lol
-He held out his hands asking the ref to help him up after he was dropped.
Just watched the Kovalev Ward fight. Boring fight. I thought Kovalev won and it wasn't even close. Hated that Max Kellerman and Hopkins were telling what a great fight it was. And how were were watching 2 great fighters...yada, yada. And, no, I don't wanna see a rematch.
Granted there was a lot of holding and not a lot of combination punching, I still thought it was somewhat entertaining fight. Kovalev brought the wood early but Ward's veteran craftiness negated Krusher's aggression and power.
Ward is the 175 version of Mayweather. Slick but lacks power, doesn't look to close the show, and wins mostly by decision. His track record proves he not an entertaining fighter. Kovalev, on the other hand, looks to anihilate his opponent. His natural power and aggressive style draws both the casual and hardcore boxing fans.
Agreed, the Russian got robbed. I really don't know what the judges were watching. As for the rematch- meh. I'd rather see Sergey bust up Adonis Chickenson in the light heavyweight class.
