CANELO VS. GGG: FIGHT OF THE YEAR.

Middleweight titans Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez will do battle in the best pure fight of the year Saturday in Las Vegas for a a slew of middleweight belts and bragging rights as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Mayweather-McGregor was a cool show, but GGG-Canelo promises to be a fun, and close, bout. (HBO Pay-Per-View, starting at 8 p.m. ET.)

I don't do that anymore.

Too often it ended up not being worth the price, so I stopped.

Typically ESPN Sports Center does round by round updates of the big pay per view fights; so generally I follow the fights as they're happening that way.

I'll watch when they rebroadcast it on regular HBO.

At my boxing gym they used to get the pay per view fights and everybody would pitch in five bucks or whatever.

Also we could bring booze to the gym (obviously only those of us just barely of drinking age) which is, of course is and as it should be, strictly verboten during normal operations (although the old owner from maybe 20 years ago used to drink and smoke when he was training guys).

Anyway, the gym used to get the fights at the regular residential retail price as opposed to paying the business price, which is much, much higher.

Then the cable company busted them.

So that was that.

I got the PPV. This is like Floyd/PacMan but not 5 years too late. I'm really excited.

Both fighters strengths play into each other. Canelo likes when the fight is brought to him because he's not that fast (on his feet) but is stupid accurate counter punching. GGG is amazing at cutting off the ring and attacking his opponent. Should be a good fight.

I'm not rooting for either fighter, I just want to be entertained.

*edit* I think GGG is up right now going into round 12. Great fight as I expected it would be.

I won't buy the second fight. Fuck that.

Great fight ruined by greedy pieces of shit that have never thrown a punch in their life.
