Title: GGG v Canelo 2
Post by: The Hurricane on January 29, 2018, 09:25:37 PM
The rematch has just been confirmed for 5th May in Vegas. Great that itís been made, hopefully there wonít be any ridiculous judging this time around.

Interesting, although strangely not that excited by it tbh.

Probably exactly same outcome with a point in it.

Glad it's finally been confirmed.

It's same night (well early hours of the Sunday) after Bellew-Haye which means if Sky don't pick up the rights then there's gonna be 2 PPV cards on the same night  //.

At least the first GGG v Canelo fight was effectively free for BN subscribers.  I'd still rather pay twice over to see that rematch than give Sky £20 to see if Haye's leg falls off again.

Canelo will knock him out in 3-4 rounds this time...no messing, no playing

I think the other way tbh. Think GGG will go early for him knowing heís only getting stuffed again on the cards.

LOL yeah mate I actually meant the other way around (GGG KO's Canelo)...I was tired when I wrote that post haha...yeah, GGG will not play this time round, he will cut off the ring, impose his size, and do him early (given what happened with the scorecards last time out)

Yep, thatís my thinking.

Would have liked to see Canelo have to fight Jacobs first. Think he already beat GGG and would handle Canelo. But, this is prize fighting and not pride fighting. This is definetly the biggest money fight to be made.

I see a hagler hearns battler this time.
GGG goes looking for him quickly and gets hurt rocked even put down.
But then he comes back with metal and destroys canelo with relentless attacks.
Of course this could be reversed too.
It's still fifty fifty but overall I think GGG wins and gets out on top.

To be honest I canít see it going much different to the first. GGG canít get going from minute one and Canelo is good enough to keep it live until the middle of the fight. Then GGGís class will take over and Canelo will start to run out of gas, get on his bike and lose rounds. I think this time the judges will give it to GGG by 2 or 3 rounds.

Canelo has tested positive for clenbuterol, potentially via consuming meat. Seriously, every Mexican fighter just needs to go veggie now.

Itís well known the Mexican meat industry supplement their cattle with hormones but thatís not an excuse to test positive for a banned substance. Canelo has enough money to set up camp wherever he wants and import his food from wherever he chooses. He should be banned.

I agree.  Mexican fighters have been using this as an excuse for I don't know how long now.  For Canelo to come up positive for it going into what will probably be the biggest fight of the year is ridiculous.

Edit: Arguably the worst thing arising here is that the WBC and WBA have both already come out backing Canelo.  All they care about is collecting some hefty sanctioning fees with scant disregard for pursuing a clean sport agenda.

Due to the positive test I believe Canelo must now use another more regular drug testing agency? I suspect he might look the part on fight night but I wouldn't be surprised if he's a lot flatter and less lively than the previous fight. Just a thought.

Looks like Spike O'Sullivan is going to get the 5th May gig now Canelo has withdrawn.  Not much to get excited about but at least it will keep GGG active. 

Glad to see that the NSAC weren't willing to just give Canelo a free pass like the WBC and WBA were.

Glad it's been cancelled, it should have been scrapped immediately though and Canelo suspended until thoroughly investigated into what's going on with him. Fanciful I know as boxing is dirty enough to not work like that. Glad the right thing to do has prevailed here though.

Is there a chance that Billy Joe will get the shot?

I'd like to see that!

He's already come out and said that 5th May would be too soon for him.  Although I imagine that the promoters would want more time to build it up anyway given that the fight would produce an undisputed middleweight champion.

So,twelve of us booked and paid for flights and hotel for cinco de mayo . first canelo gets drugged up and gets the fight cancelled, then ggg says hes still gonna fight someone and books grand garden arena  still no opponent and now the news that the venue could be swithched to carson in california. 

Bloo#dy marvellous.

GGG now confirmed to fight Martirosyan at the StubHub.  Poor fight given that he's never fought at 160 and lost to Lara last time out and the indication seemed to be that the IBF would strip GGG if this was made.  Good work Canelo.

Gutting that, but California is a nice drive if youíre free that day.

The fight is now back on for 15th September after Oscar spent most of yesterday throwing his toys out of the plan.  Ridiculous that people were accusing GGG of ducking Canelo even though he'd signed for the rematch once only for Alvarez to be busted for PED's.

They said Saunders v GGG was going to happen 25 August if this didn't happen. Looks like Billy Joe has missed out. Don't see where he goes next as can't see a Danny Jacobs fight getting made as he is with Hearn
