  • You been saying that a while now. Only Big Drama Show you’ve had recently were those two Canelo fixed fights.

    • Unfortunately, I too have no doubt that these two fights were fixed.

      I can only wish GGG the great drama shows he has in mind. He’s an amazing fighter with character, and I hope he will have a spectacular win over Derevychanchenko.

      I was surprised how well D fought against Jacobs. Although he doesn’t have many pro fights, he is a legit top 10 MW contender.

    • Don’t know that they were fixed, although GGG wasn’t about to get a close decision with judges who were told who to vote for.

        • I think by “fix” he means when the result was prearranged ahead of time with both sides aware of it not just corrupt judges in the event of a decision.

  • Sergiy Derevyanchenko is a poor man’s GGG. Neither is very young. GGG in 6 by a TKO. I have seen Sergiy Derevyanchenko. Yes, he is very good. This will be the end of the line.

  • Thought GGG won the first fight, but Canelo definitely won the second and GGG was all busted up. I like both guys so no favorites

  • I hope GGG wins, so he can get his Canelo rematch. Then he can get knocked out as he cashes out.

  • Am a big GGG fan, but his Big Drama Show days are over. Maybe still possible against a mediocre opponent, but not against top level anymore.

  • GGG opponent is good he beat Johnson and look what he did lately but GGG is a great fighter he was robbed against canelo

  • You people on this GGG is too old stuff are brainwashed zombies. He can KO someone falling off balance with a jab. His power is supernatural. This guy may get outpointed or robbed.. But nobody is gonna stand toe to toe and get to the final bell upright against him.. Not ever.
