All three judges gave Canelo the first four rounds. Unbelievable:

Moretti and Weisfeld both scored Canelo vs GGG 2 for Canelo, 7-5. Moretti also scored GGG vs Canelo 1 7-5 GGG.

Another huge fight this weekend.

Jermall Charlo vs Brian Castano II

Last time Castano got robbed, fight ended up a draw.

Titles on the line:
Charlo's Ring Magazine, WBA (Super), WBC, IBF super welterweight titles
Castano's WBO super welterweight title
Vacant lineal super welterweight world championship

Should be a great one. First fight I scored 116-112 for Castano, but Charlo proved to be a different beast in the second Harrison fight after he lost a razor thin decision in the first one.

Lots of boxing yesterday on ESPN, Showtime, and even a PPV from Abu Dhabi.

In the PPV Mayweather defeated Dangerous Dan Moore. Moore was his sparring partner so I guess he is helping a friend get a great pay. I can't imagine people paying to see the fight, but it was available on PPV. I found a stream and was really disappointed. Two minute rounds, Moore punching 5-6 per round. A waste of time.


The Showtime card was better. Benavidez defeated David Lemieux. Lemieux was stunned badly at the end of round 1, but was saved by the bell. His corner called off the fight in the third. He was taking punishment, but was still fighting bravely.

Benavidez again called out the big dogs at 168.
Last time he called them pussies and this time bitches. Haha 😄 🤣

Benavidez only has himself to blame:
1. He lost his first world title due to positive cocaine tests
2. He lost his second world title due to missing weight
3. His two best wins are against completely shot fighters (Dirrell and Lemieux)

If he'd acted like a professional with his first two belts he'd already have gotten the Canelo fight.

If he'd beaten any actual prime contenders he'd be seen as a much bigger star than he already is.

Instead he wanted to party and fight bums, so here we are.
