    No idea yet. We'll have a better idea in the next year to year and a half. Canelo would be on the list.

    Whoever believes Jacobs won doesn't know shit about boxing period. Kovelav vs ward on the other hand was a robbery

    All the robbery talk has died now that people who scored it for jacobs realized they are in a tiny minority.

    That's how it usually goes. Heat of the moment and all that.

    This was one of those fights were no matter who had their hand raised at the end it wouldn't have been a robbery. Just a really close fight.

    Look, I dislike the nerd who sits in his basement just as much as the next guy. I do value a professionals athletes opinion. But I'm not going to sit here and pretend like Dan Rafael, buster Olney, Pierre LeBrun, etc. don't know their respective sports. Same thing with MMA, if a fighter says they think fighter A won, ok.....what is your scorecard? It's round by round based, not emotional.

    If you scored in 116-111 for Jacobs (or apparently 115-112), I'm willing to bet you would be in the 5% that did so. A majority of people thought Golovkin won and I concede a 114-113 decision for Jacobs is ok. It was a close fight we both agree. But over on the boxing forums you have people saying Jacobs won 10-2 and those people are either Canelo fans or they hate Golovkin. There are a solid 6 rounds in that fight that are easy to agree on. Yet people were just being homers.

    In MMA I tend to look on MMAdecisions because idiots on Sherdog claim everything is a robbery. It's just how people react. GGG-Jacobs was exactly like Jones-Gustafsson in my opinion. A close fight where a small minority though the underdog won. But in reality it was just a close fight that many expected the champ to dominate.

    So posting press scores made you feel the need to post this snooty comment? Sorry Jacobs lost, I truly am.

    Most polls have this "tiny minority" to be about 35-40%.

    The kovalav fight wasn't as close as this ggg and Jacobs ( which really wasn't as close as the average couch potato is trying to make it seem)

    the "tiny minority" are those that believe jacobs was robbed

    35-40 percent think that jacobs won

    there is a big, big difference between thinking a fighter won a fight and that the fighter was robbed.

    for example, i have no problem with anyone thinking that jacobs won the fight. i do have a probelm with people here thinking that he was robbed, which is borderline delusional as jacobs himself admitted that he would have been okay with a draw; more often those same people here who believed andre ward beat sergy kovalev(i have no problem with this as well) even though ward was kd and the punch stats where equal whereas golovkin was not kd and gennady won the fightmetrics in punches landed, punches thrown and at a higher connect percentage

    Fair enough. Robbed is a loosely used (and overused) term.

    I doubt Mayweather because even if he does fight McGregor, that would make him maybe 10-0 for a 10 year span?

    Someone like Golovkin 19-0, maybe Klitschko if he beats Joshua, and some others would probably get the nod over Mayweather simply because of activity.

    I was thinking more just so far. Ward might have a claim, too.

    I dunno. There seem to be an awful lot of super emotional fans that think jacobs was robbed and he wasn't all that aggressive. I think you get super emotional fans crawling out of the woodwork for any style. It's what fans do.
