OT- Canelo vs Trout(boxing)
All boxing threads are drinking threads
People still care about boxing?
They just said the official scoring, Canelo is winning by a mile on two cards. The third card is close.
That's the problem with boxing, 80-71 on one card, 76-75 on another. Crazy.
Canelo knocked trout down in the 7th. Trout is throwing a lot of punches but missing. Canelo appears to be tiring now. Fight is about even
This is a good fight! Canelo starting to showboat this round though.
Canelo wins by unanimous decision. The knockdown in the 7th and his head work dodging Trouts punches won him the fight as well as picking his spots to throw power punches.
Sloppy fight. Trout knew with the fight in Texas(why would he agree to go there...I know I know $$$$)he had to dominate to get a decision so he was overly aggressive. That's not his style but conditions called for it. Canelo is a selective stalker but Trout wasn't going to allow him that fight. So the stalker is looking to counter and the boxer is volume punching. Two men fighting unnatural fights. If Canelo was a better counter puncher he would have dominated but that's a hole in his game. Rightfully the fight could have gone either way but it was in Texas so.....
Mayweather would whoop I mean whoop both of these dudes! Not even close to the same class!! Might beat em both at the same time....
He could do both. He's quite talented
I'm not sure i'm a fan of that "open scoring" they have in Texas. For one thing, it definitely took the suspense away for me as a person watching the fight, knowing that Canello basically had to stay conscious and he would win. And also like they said, kind of forces the fighter who is down on the cards to change up from what he is comfortable with. I didn't even know they had that,, but then i don't watch much boxing these days.
I had Trout winning but just barely. I have no problem with the fact that he lost but the cards were awful.
If that bothers you don't watch fights in Texas. It's the most corrupt place for boxing in the world. I like the state but boxing, well boxing shouldn't be allowed there.
