NBA Stars React to GGG-Canelo Super-Fight Controversy on Twitter
Unless you were living under a rock the past few hours, you probably know that the Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez super-fight took place tonight in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In fact, you probably also know about its controversial finish.
For those who dwell beneath rocks, let me recap. GGG out-boxed the Mexican superstar Alvarez, yet there was one human being in the entire world who felt otherwise. Unfortunately for Golovkin, that human being was one of the three judges who granted Alvarez a very gracious 118-110 score forcing the match to end in a draw.
Well, the world wasn’t a fan and neither were some of the biggest names from around the NBA.
Triple G won that fight for sure, but don't tell AD I said this ?

If I'm GGG, no need to fight him again.. "THEY" won't let me win unless it's a knockout anyway.. On to the next

Something tells me that GGG has seen better days.
