It was a tough fight to score. Even the official judges' scorecards were different depending on the rounds.
I relied on "Boxing Math" a little too much in this case. My evaluation relied heavily on the Sergio Mora performance, where I felt that if Mora could put Jacobs down, then GGG would take him to task.
Of course, I didn't think Danny had the pure Boxing ability to fight the way that he did. Sure, we all knew the blueprint to beat any fighter of GGG's ilk, but the question is, who can pull off that kind of a blueprint ?
I have said many, many times before, but these kind of performances make me miss Floyd Mayweather Jr. because he found a way to clearly win close rounds. Within all that dancing and holding, there were absolutely clean punches landing at a high clip. That's the difference in class between Mayweather and other fighters though.
There were some idiots complaining about Jacobs' weight, but once again, fuck that as far as I'm concerned. If you can make the weight at weigh-in then you're good. How much you inflate afterwards just shows that you're in terrible shape for the fight and that too was not the case with Danny (Chris Algieri, take a bow).
Danny is the 2nd best or arguably the best MW in the world and you could well see a rematch and potentially a trilogy fight based on that result.
But once again, I felt that 114-113 was a fair score for GGG.
