    Looking forward to this. I believe GGG will come in a bit leaner. It appeared to me that he was a bit sluggish and not not at his normal condition. Look for him to increase his conditioning and put on pressure sooner.

    Just reviewed their 1st fight. What a rip off. GGG 9 and maybe Canela 3. F*cking corrupt Vegas.

    Triple G needs a new management team, it is crazy for GGG to wait 8 months between fights. He is going to be a year older and believe it or not a successful fighter has to find a reason to get up for a rematch ,when he thought he won the first fight. The late great Gil Clancy once said the need to get a fighter back in the ring is essential for success especially for an older fighter. That is probably looked at as the old fashion but he had a lot of good fighters Emile Griffith was one.

    I'll most likely boycott this after the blatant Robbery of Triple G last time they faced each other. GGG will win and they'll start pushing for a 3rd fight.

    Old fighters -of which I known perhaps too many- can lack the motivation for training as they may already be financial set, have already have won championships, or their body once out of shape does not return to previous heights of ability. Clancy was an old school American trainer -yeah he knew the ropes.

    GGG said in that Russian interview he did, which was translated in English, that after the Canelo fight he lost some motivation. Will his desire return? Yes! He can't make millions in Kazakhstan.

    Canelo was set up to have many advantages for his fight with GGG. These advantages were acknowledged by GGG in that interview mentioned above. Nevertheless Canelo is not in a hurry to get back in the ring with GGG and he needs the rest. No matter what he says, the chin punishment Canelo took from GGG is permanent it has no remedy. If GGG trains hard, and if careful preparations are made, and they are being made, and if GGG makes the adjustments to his attacks he did not make in their first fight, Canelo may not only lose but he may not finish the fight.

    Did you watch Teddy Atlas lose it over the result. It was great!
