Canelo Strips Gennady Golovkin's Middleweight Belts: Twitter Explodes

Anyone scoring the Canelo-GGG fight at home had a tough task-at-hand. Even if CompuBox were available at a split speed rate, it would be hard to valorize one fighter’s punching exploits over the other. In a lot ways, individual scorecards reflected what type punches you place in higher esteem: Canelo’s selective use “Power Punches” or Gennady Golovkin’s relentless and volume-driven use “The Jab.”

Two out three judges assigned with scoring the fight, voted in favor Canelo’s punching rubric, and thus a unified Middleweight champion was born for the first time since Jermain Taylor won all alphabet sanctioned belts in 2005. This is how the Internet has reacted to the biggest pure boxing match since they last locked fists.

LeBron James who was ringside for the fight chose the high road in celebrating both men for their tremendous if not historic performances. I for one agree with the sentiment he chose, the fight was simply too close to call (to the untrained eye), and furthermore it’s in the very nature boxing for a close fight to swing either way, most who compete at the highest level have overcome through tough losses with the slightest margins and have learned to cope with the sting. Golden Boy, who promotes Canelo Alvarez also chose to celebrate both men, even though they had a vested interest in seeing their man come out the victor.

With much respect for sports enthusiasts like LeBron, I think we should leave the rest the floor space for the boxing intelligentsia to comment on the final result. ESPN’s longtime boxing expert scored the fight right down the middle. Welterweight challenger and former World Champion Amir Khan gave Canelo a slight edge after 12. On the other hand, promoter Lou DiBella felt that Golovkin was robbed a second time in a row. Where do you stand?

Drake Appears To Take A Jab At Kanye West On “Scorpion”

We’re just a week away from hearing Drake’s highly anticipated Scorpion album, yet details surrounding it remain tight lipped. Fans have been wondering if Drizzy would respond to Pusha T after he got the last word in with the “Story Of Adidon” track, but the last we heard that it was dead. DJ Akademiks said he spoke with Drake and he told him that it’s all going to make sense once the album drops, alluding to that he’s going to explain his son and possible beef with Pusha T. However, it appears Drizzy might have something up his sleeve for Kanye as well, or so it kinda seems.

On Friday night, Apple Music simply tweeted out the line “Fashion week is more your thing than mine,” while tagging Drake & Scorpion. While it’s not technically confirmed, it’s safe to assume Drizzy spits this line on his upcoming album, and it would make sense he’s addressing it to Kanye, or that’s what fans believe anyways.

Now course we’ll have to hear the lines before & after this to tell who Drake was talking about here, but from what we can see it sounds like Ye, especially since we know how much Kanye loves his fashion shows.

This tweet comes just a day after rumors were circulating online that the album could be a double disk album as billboards having been popping up in Toronto hinting that there’s an “A & B side,” which would give Drake plenty opportunities to address his recent situation.

While we wait to find out more, check out Apple Music’s tweet (below) and let us know what you think. Is Drake going at Kanye here?

Edit: It turns out the bar/line was plastered on a billboard in Times Square, but still appears to be f the upcoming album (see below).
