2 thoughts on “Canelo vs Golovkin III

  • Father time is undefeated and he will win against GGG Saturday night. But I don’t think it will be a KO. The ability to take a punch is one we’re born with. And in this arena GGG AND Canelo are both extraordinary. If GGG goes down it will be by accumulation of body shots… and believe me there comin in large numbers.

  • GGG is one of my favourite fighters and in my opinion he won the first fight and the second fight was maybe a draw. I’d take prime GGG over Canelo but sadly his prime has passed and I think this will be the only time he’s ever knocked out.
    Canelo ’s a great fighter and still on his prime. He’s improved since their last meetings, has been active against top level opponents since then and has moved up in weight.
    GGG’s age is catching up with him and he’s been relatively inactive, especially against top class fighters.

    Canelo is now used to taking the power of Light Heavyweights and hasn’t been seriously hurt by them. The Mexican has been able to knock out much bigger men than Triple G. I think the power difference since the last time these greats met will be a shock.
