A draw?

 

A very good fight by all accounts, but GGG supposedly controlled the action with his jab... and the scores I saw had him up 9-2, 8-3 going into the 12th.

One judge had it 118-110 Alvarez... which seems to have puzzled everyone.

The judge who gave it to Canelo (Adalaide Byrd) is apparently notorious for terrible decisions.

 

She's getting skewered on twitter.

 

She also cost me $150.

 

NOT BITTER OR ANYTHING.

""Unfortunately, Adalaide was a little wide. I'm not making any excuses. I think she's an outstanding judge, and in any business, sometimes you have a bad day. She saw the fight differently. It happens.""

 

She should be banned from doing any more highly publicized fights.

"This is not Byrd's first controversial scorecard. She had Diego Magdaleno defeating Nonito Donaire 118-110 to win a junior featherweight world title in 2016 in a fight the other judges had closer. Another example was the 2012 junior middleweight title fight between Austin Trout and Miguel Cotto. Trout won the fight, but Byrd's 119-109 scorecard in favor of Trout was a stunner."

 

It would appear to me she's clueless?

That's boxing. Corrupt as hell. They needed a reason to run it back for another big pay day since there are no other big fights available. What a joke.
