Ahead of GGG vs Canelo 2 in just over ten days time lets watch the full GGG vs Canelo first fight a year ago to see what we might be able to learn coming into the rematch.
A lot has happened since then.
Controversy in the ring on the night when one of the judges scored the bout by a ridiculous margin in favor of Canelo, to an unsatisfactory draw result, to drugs scandals and more, this rematch is one of the most eagerly anticipated middleweight showdowns in recent boxing memory.
Tactics are going to be vital come September 15th as both men seek to either close the show inside the distance to take the outcome out of the judges’ hands, or, make it so clear over the twelve rounds that no judge could possibly mess up proceedings.
Canelo looks far trimmer this time around which leads me to believe he’s going to look to box and move.
Particularly by the way his coaches have been speaking in the build-up, too.
They seem to think Golovkin is a one trick pony.
Lets take a look back at GGG vs Canelo 1 in its entirety and try to score the fight with the commentary off.
