Teddy Atlas in rare form in #Vegas post Canelo-GGG, @stephenasmith not amused at first, but gets reeled into some Teddy-like behavior toward end. #boxing #CanelovsGolovkin2 #espn @espn pic.twitter.com/7bRchRhfGQ— Mick Akers (@mickakers) September 16, 2018
Although Atlas had predicted that Canelo would win the fight, after watching it actually happen he thought that GGG deserved the win. Stephen A agreed, but at first was not as adamant as his counterpart.
Punches landed in the first fight:— TeamFA (@TeamFA) September 16, 2018
GGG - 218
Canelo - 169
The fight was ruled a draw.
Punches landed in the 2nd fight:
GGG - 234
Canelo - 202
Canelo wins by Majority Decision.
After Atlas went crazy, Stephen A. Smith chimed in to try to calm Atlas down, but Stephen A also could not contain himself. It is strange that Canelo was awarded the win when GGG landed over 30 more punches.
Teddy Atlas and Stephen A make quite the duo as one just goes crazier than the next while discussing the fight.
Hopefully Canelo and GGG can fight again sometime soon and have the fight result in a more obvious choice if not a total knockout. This has become a serious boxing rivalry which fans surely hope is not over.
