Who you got tonight?

Im not sure if GGG is the same fighter. In rooting for GGG, but I think Canelo outboxes him and wins a tight one.....Canelo is a slick boxer who uses head movement, feints, and has good hand speed. Not to mention is younger...

Call me crazy Uptown, but Im guessing its going to be a draw!

Seriously, I would have been PO'd if I had paid to watch a draw, even if it was a good fight. Will be more willing to watch the rematch though. Sounds like its going to happen.

This was built as the fight that would put boxing back in the forefront...On the heels of the Mayweather/McGregor fight this was a golden opportunity for boxing to grab casual fans and or UFC fans and what does boxing do? They show their ugly corrupted faces!

Seriously, how does one judge have the fight 118-110 and be the far off from the other judges?! Thepublic spends all of that money for a draw! What a joke!

A couple of hours before the fight. I randomly started looked at the spread/odds for the fight. I saw that a draw was +1600 or if I put down
$50 I would win $800. I never really bet and don't even know the process all that well to have placed one. I tried to call my friend and 2 of my brothers who do to see if they wanted to pool some money on those odds. To me based on the amount of money you could potentially win. The possibility of a draw given both fighters skill set and the possibility of corruption. Felt it was the best combination of possibility and earnings. None of the people I contacted believed in that outcome and I chickened out to put down a wager. Since I don't normally bet was my natural action. Had to phone a couple of rants after the fight lol.

They shouldn't be surprised that so many boxing fans would rather look for a pirated stream than PPV, when Pro Boxing acts like a criminal enterprise. Thought the judge's name sounded familiar....

She had no business judging this fight....Should have been suspended or given walking papers a long time ago. Until boxing gets an actual commission, it'll always be corrupt. Seriously, how do promoters get to pick the judges? Thats like the Knicks picking their own refs for all of their home games.

Andre Ward retired. Always admired champs who retire undefeated. Hope he can resist the temptation to make a comeback. Sounds like Ward is planning on holding on to his earnings, respect that as well.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who has played a part in my journey," Ward said.

"You know who you are.

"I could not have done this without you.

"I want to be clear – I am leaving because my body can no longer put up with the rigours of the sport and therefore my desire to fight is no longer there.

"If I cannot give my family, my team, and the fans everything that I have, then I should no longer be fighting.

"Above all, I give God the Glory, for allowing me to do what I’ve done, for as long as I have."

Ward added: "To the sport of boxing - I love you.

"You’ve been by my side since I was 10-years-old.

"You’ve taught me so much. You’ve humbled me.

"You’ve promoted me. I’ve sacrificed a lot for you, but you’ve given me more than I ever thought possible.

"You gave me a platform, made me a champion and helped me provide for my family. I am forever grateful to you. You and I will always be synonymous, connected at the hip.

"Thank you for all the wonderful people I’ve come in contact with because of you.

"I’ve made friends for life. As I walk away from the sport of boxing today, I leave at the top of your glorious mountain, which was always my vision and my dream. I did it. We did it."

That is so true. I can't remember the last time I paid to watch a fight. Paid as in PPV, closed circuit, paying a cover charge at a bar, brought a six pack to a fight party, etc. It may have been when Tarver fought Roy Jones the third time.

Last fight I paid for was Mayweather/Pacquiao, boy was I PO'd. MMA should fund a rival boxing league, with the selling point of there being more safeguards in place to prevent cheating. Run more like other leagues, other sports.

This Saturday on ESPN !!!

Junior lightweight world titleholder Vasyl Lomachenko wanted to face a top opponent so badly that he acquiesced to the request from junior featherweight titleholder Guillermo Rigondeaux during negotiations that there be a weight check on the day of the fight.

Lomachenko will put his 130-pound world title on the line against 122-pound titleholder Rigondeaux, who is moving up two weight divisions for a historic meeting, in the main event of the Top Rank ESPN card on Dec. 9 (ESPN and ESPN Deportes, 9 p.m. ET) at the sold-out Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. But neither fighter will be allowed to blow up to more than 138 pounds immediately after the weigh-in, because at 9 a.m. on the day of the fight there will be a weight check, Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti told ESPN on Friday.

The weight clause in the contract had not previously been revealed.

"Rigondeaux's team broached the subject when we were negotiating the fight, so we went to Lomachenko and [manager] Egis [Klimas] with it," Moretti said. "Lomachenko and Egis said they had no problem with it, so it's in the contract."

Moretti then added, joking about Rigondeaux's defensive boxing style that includes a lot of movement, "And then we in turn asked that Rigondeaux run no more than three miles inside the ring the night of [the] fight."

If either Lomachenko or Rigondeaux weighs more than 138 pounds at the weight check there is a financial penalty, Moretti said. He declined to say exactly how but said, "Let's say it's more than $10,000."

Since Lomachenko, who also won a world title at featherweight, is not that much bigger than Rigondeaux, Moretti said adding the clause to the agreement was not a sticking point.

"It was one of the original negotiating points, and we had no problem with it," Moretti said. "I don't think there will be that big of a difference when they stand next to each other in the ring. There isn't a big physical size difference between them, and Lomachenko doesn't put on a lot of weight after the weigh-in anyway. Size is not what will determine the outcome of this fight.

"If the weight check was something that helped make the fight, which it did, then why not when it wasn't a big problem? It showed just how much 'Loma' really wanted this fight."

Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs), 29, who will be making his fourth title defense, and Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs), 37, are two of the greatest amateurs in boxing history. Lomachenko was 396-1 and won Olympic gold medals for Ukraine in 2008 and 2012. Rigondeaux was 463-12 in the unpaid ranks and won Olympic gold medals in 2000 and 2004 for Cuba before defecting and turning pro in 2009. In addition to their Olympic success, they also both won two world amateur championships apiece.

Their fight will mark the first time that fighters who have each won two Olympic gold medals will fight in the pro ranks, and the result will have major implications to boxing's pound-for-pound rankings.
