Re: Not GGG bashing but...
It was a bit similar to that in the fight this weekend too. Some say sickness, some say age, but GGG just wasn't quite pulling the trigger like he once did and was retreating a lot. I think the KD saved him, but just maybe his opponents are better, know what is coming now, and that he has declined somewhat too. Asides from Canelo who I honestly do not rate like Beanz seems to, GGG has been taking tune ups and just maybe he has lost his way and father time has taken what he had.

Maybe a rematch to prove his doubters wrong, but he didn't rematch Jacobs and we will see with this. It would be nice to see him comeback and put on a convincing display, but he really did squeak this one and that first round KD wasn't much of a KD.
