Yes, G was the aggressor…so was Maidana vs Mayweather for both fights, so was Canelo when he fought, so on and so forth. Doesn’t matter if you’re the aggressor if you’re not capitalizing on it its a waste. GGG landed more jabs…But thats about it. Canelo won every other category. Canelo was the aggressor vs Lara and 95% of GGG fans had Lara winning that fight so that should tell you something right there…that or confirm a contradiction in regards to this fight…hell both.
I can make that same argument regarding body shots. GGG was head hunting all night so its really no surprise he’d win that catagory but GGGs body work was non existent compared to canelos.
Yes…at the cost of 70+ more missed attempts than Canelo as well.
Yes but at the end of the day. Canelo still won that category so its his for the taking regardless. Vin Diesel said it best. Doesn’t matter if you win by a mile or by the skin of your teeth. Winning is winning.
And Canelo landed more shots downstairs compared to GGG
It’ll show that Canelo won to the body. That’s it.
How am I cherry picking data points to back my claim when that’s not even the point of my claim to begin with? I’ve since said in the EYES of the judges…Not the fans.
And this is why…we have an overall percentage counter to begin with. Like I said before and Ill say it again.
Let’s say my opponent landed 112 punches on me but throw 2384738483 more attempts than I did.
Compared to me landing 111 punches but it only took me 113 attempts to do so. Who are the judges going to be more impressed by? The guy whos accurate and knows what hes doing? Or the guy who’s throwing randomly and hoping for the best? If you don’t feel like GGG missed that many fights and are that strongly about it then by all means break the fight down frame by frame yourself. Based on my point of view GGG missed a lot of his shots and the compubox thrown counter confirmed what I’ve seen
Never said it was inefficient nor subpar…Just wasn’t good enough to cause canelo any problems and enough for canelo to strongly capitalize on the first half of the fight.
By that point GGG will be an old man or would have finally gotten his 1st L probably by the hands of one of the charlos or BJS…Then Canelo will face him again and ultimately beat him…And thus the excuses of “GGG got too old” will inevitably fly. Guaranteed.
