It was close, but I had G winning by 2 rounds plus the knockdown. There were several close rounds, but G was landing more throughout the fight. The Chocolatito decision was an absolute robbery. It wasn't even a close fight imo, which makes that decision a joke.

My brother called me and told me it was a huge Robbery -- that Jacobs clearly won. My best friend called me and said it was a close fight but he had GGG winning by 2 rounds. Seems to me that overall people think GGG barely won. I think the fact that Jacobs missed weight 5 lbs and was nearly 20 lbs heavier day of, makes a huge difference.

Can't wait to watch the fight. I have it downloaded. Just waiting for the family to leave so I can watch it.

The underdog factor plays in to the thinking of people in these fights. Because Jacobs stuck around ( and fought well ) for 12 rounds. It makes it look like he was better than he actually was because the hype is always for a GGG knock out.

GGG won without much of an issue and the knockdown was the cherry.

I had GGG winning by 1 round, but there was definitely one round that I found could have gone either way. Anyhow, I wouldn't have been surprised if Jacbos had won on any of the judges cards (even though they didn't), but I don't think it was a robbery at all. It was strange to watch GGG be more calculated. Part of me feels like he didn't push for more activity, just to draw in Canelo fight.

Now, the Chocolatito fight, I had him winning by 1 round. Although, it was definitely a very close fight as well. That was actually more entertaining to watch than the GGG/Jacobs fight.

No Friday fights, but there is a fight tonight and a couple Saturday.

I figured Glen Tapia would've retired after the few fights he's been ko'd in lately.

First time I watched the fight I thought GGG clearly won, I had the commentator's volume really low. The second time I watched the fight (w commentators volume normal) and hearing the commentators point out a few things I missed jacobs do or perhaps influencing my thoughts I saw that the fight could go either way. But ultimately, I think jacobs gave GGG too much respect the 1st half of the fight which gave GGG the win.
