    Surprised there isnt a thread on this already. Going for a late stoppage or points victory for Canelo.
    Really looking forward to this one after the MacGregor debacle.

    I'm looking forward to this one should be a cracker. I hear it'll be on channel 872 on Sky (i'll get that in before anyone else has me falling for it).

    What sort of time is it on? I'll get 872 on a couple of hours in advance to be sure!

    I'm thinking GGG late on. Hard one to call. Proper fight.

    GGG close points decision for me, with a late knockdown to essentially win it.

    First fight in years where I'll be (hopefully) getting up at 4am and watching live.

    Another fight on in the early morning. Remember when the great fights between Benn v Eubank and Minter v Hagler etc, they were on around nine o'clock at night ?
    Too early now even for postmen !

    Probably go to bed early and get up to watch this. Sad but true.

    I'm tempted to watch it myself. GGG is superb imo, so powerful.

    You do realise those fights were in England?
    This one is in the USA ...hence the time difference.

    Dull as fuck. Don't think BJS is on the level of GGG or Canelo

    Good fight. Scandalous scoring. GGG by a couple of rounds.
    How the 114-114 judge scored the 7th for camel is as bad a decision the terrible 118-110 judge!! Took away the majority decision.
    Gotta question the integrity of the whole thing. Canelo lives in Vegas, crowd overwhelmingly Mexican, fight on Mexican national day.

    I know that. Just irritated that the fight was on at such an early time. I should have put it better !

    Not the greatest fight you'll ever see, but you're right about the judge scoring 118-110, ridiculous he gave GGG only 2 rounds.

    it was a woman - maybe she's got a soft spot for redheads. . Though she does seem to have a history of unusual scoring in big fights.
