Canelo Vs. GGG Lives Up To The Hype But The Judges Stole The Show

The highly-anticipated fight between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin lived up to its promise, with both fighters showing off the styles that have made them two of boxing’s best. Canelo, who was looking to counter, looked confident early on, landing some heavy shots throughout the fight. GGG started off slowly, showing respect for Canelo’s power. As the fight wore on, GGG became the aggressor, outworking Alvarez until rounds 10 through 12, when Canelo attempted to mount a comeback.

Things started off well enough…

… and once the bell rang, Canelo and GGG were on the edge of their seats.

Canelo appeared more comfortable early in the fight…

… But GGG began turning the tide, landing more punches.

This former champ was following closely:

Both fighters are known for having single punch knockout power, so it felt like a big mistake from either boxer could have led to a KO.

Once the final bell rang, most observers believed GGG did enough to get a comfortable decision in his favor.

But once the decision was announced — a split decision draw, with one judge scoring the fight 118 – 110 in favor of Canelo — most people reacted this way:

Although the fight was close, the 118-110 score from judge Adelaide Byrd made people very skeptical.

What fight was she watching?

That means Byrd thought GGG only won two rounds the whole fight.

Yes, only TWO rounds for GGG.

Former trainer Teddy Atlas wasn’t having any of it:

Although Canelo said he felt he won, the look of frustration on his face appeared to tell a different story:

Although he was disappointed with the draw, GGG reminded everyone he was still the champ.

Some wondered if Oscar De La Hoya, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, had something to do with the sketchy score.

Fuck this I'm going back to sleep #CANELOGGG #ggg #canelo #boxing #youdontplayboxing

De La Hoya said he thought Canelo won but didn’t understand the 118-110 scorecard.

For many boxing fans, a classic fight was overshadowed by a questionable decision.

But guess what? They’re gonna do it all over again next May.

Dodgers Win First World Series Championship Since 1988 And It’s Great To Be An Angeleno

The Los Angeles Dodgers are the champions after 32 years. The bizarre year of Covid and social distancing was also a year of wins for Los Angeles after both the Lakers and Dodgers bring home the championships. The city was alive with energy after the historic and wonderful win.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are the new World Series champions.

The baseball team has not won a World Series championship since 1988. This year, after a long 32-year drought, the Dodgers broke that curse and delivered LA a win during the time of Covid. The Dodgers went against the Tampa Bay Rays and battled it out in a nerve-wracking and nail-biting World Series.

Of course, there is a lot of love being showered on the Latino players.

Latinos are a major part of the Dodgers and their fanbase is huge. There is a reason that the nickname of the Dodgers is Los Doyers. There are four Latino pitchers on the Dodgers and they made themselves crucial parts of the team this season leading the team to the championship.

The Dodgers triumphed over the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series on Game 6. The teams kept battling it out for the first four games with the Dodgers winning the first and third. The Tampa Bay Rays won the second and fourth. Yet, the Dodgers came through at the end with victories in the fifth and sixth game to clinch the title.

The story overpowering the coverage of the Dodgers’ World Series win is Justin Turner.

The third baseman tested positive for Covid-19 during the game and was removed when the test came back positive. However, when the Dodgers won the sixth game, Turner ran onto the field without a mask. He was photographed holding the trophy, posing with the team for photos, and even taking selfies without wearing a mask.

It is a clear violation of Covid guidelines for the MLB. According to reports, officials sent security to remove Turner from the field because he was breaking safety guidelines. He allegedly refused to leave the field.

Fans have a lot of questions about how Turner caught Covid since the league was supposed to be operating in a bubble.

The MLB has had issues with some teams dealing with Covid infections but it had been a while since one had happened. Turner was tested the day before the game but it came back inconclusive, a pretty common issues with Covid testing right now. Turner was then tested before the game and when the results came back positive in the second inning, Turner was immediately removed.

The MLB has launched an investigation into Turner’s outright refusal to comply with Covid safety guidelines.

“Following the Dodgers’ victory, it is clear that Turner chose to disregard the agreed-upon joint protocols and the instructions he was given regarding the safety and protection of others,’’ the Commissioner’s Office said in a statement. “While a desire to celebrate is understandable, Turner’s decision to leave isolation and enter the field was wrong and put everyone he came in contact with at risk. When MLB Security raised the matter of being on the field with Turner, he emphatically refused to comply.’’

People are super energized to celebrate and support their team.

The Dodgers made it to the championship game against the Houston Astros in 2017. The Dodgers lost to the Astros that year but three years later the Astros had the title stripped because of a cheating scandal. Now, The Dodgers have a chance to make win a title and Dodgers fans are excited to see it happen.

Even the furry fans are getting excited about the games.

It’s a fact that if a team has furry fans then they have the best fanbase. Who doesn’t want to end up at a stadium or party with these cute fluffers walking around in their Dodgers’ gear? These four-legged fans are better than child fans because they are going to get everyone’s spirits up.

The team has a lot of big names behind them cheering them on.

Los Angeles is home to some of the top celebrities and athletes. It must be nice to know that some of the most influential people are out there pushing for you to make it all the way. Bonus points if they are other athletes who know just how exciting and hard it is to compete at the elite level.
