I don't really need to see this one again. I suspect it will play out a little bit like last time.

Hopefully Adelaide Byrd isn't involved this time.

IF and big IF Canelo finally can figure out his cardio issues he will soundly beat GGG

I think there were both (rightfully) conservative, and off course had their moments when they opened up a little & hurt the other - so knowing that, I think they'll both each look for a finish at some point

What? The rounds GGG won was more of what Canelo didn’t do and not what GGG did. Canelo was easily landing the more telling punches...

I agree with this. If Canelo could keep up a similar pace the way he did the first three rounds he would have had more in the bag. I wasn't impressed with GGG's plodding footwork and when he did Canelo up against the ropes, many times Canelo would just simply pivot out.

Smart man... Hopkins said he saw GGG wence anytime Canelo went to the body, I believe the 4th or 5th rd Canelo landed a really telling body shot and had GGG hurt. Hop said he would tell Canelo to feint more to the body in the rematch

It better be for free otherwise I am not watching it. Canelo lost the first fight. He also didn't show the courage I expect from a Mexican fighter.

Canelo did nothing because he didn't want to gas and be a sitting duck. If he fights the first half of the fight the way he did the last 3 rounds he would be dead tired by the 6th or 7th and be in trouble.

To be fair, he doesn't look very Mexican.

GGG works the body early and often, puts Canelo away in the last quarter of the fight.

Great news, can't wait to see each man's adjustments. I actually favor Canelo going in, even though GGG clearly won the first fight. Rooting for GGG for sure though

First fight was good, but as great as advertised. I hope the second fight lives up to the hype.

I’m sure he’s beating himself up for not meeting your lofty standard...

It was a good fight.

A lot of pretentious chin stroking in this thread.

He looks like Blake Griffin's little brother.

This won’t do 1 million buys. 

1.  Controversy last time with “this shit is fixed”

2. It wasn’t Gatti vs Ward so why drop nearly $100 to see a pretty good fight again which likely will be MORE tentative. 

Nope. 

This isn’t a dream fight now it’s just a standard rematch and casuals figure GGG wins so boxing can sell the rubber match and have yet another trilogy. 

The only way you get to a trilogy that makes real cash is if GGG knocks Canelo out cold. 

Knockouts are the one thing casuals don’t see as rigged and then they’d pay to see a “comeback”. 

This fight will do 800-900K but loses buys given warm weather,  it’s not really necessary since GGG won last time and for the price it’s not worth it since it’ll likely be 12 rounds of rather tentative chess playing.

I think it easily breaks a million, first fight was great and the sour ending needs closure
