    Wow. Canelo put Khan to sleep. That was one of the most vicious KOs I've seen recently in boxing or MMA.

    I hope they make the GGG fight now. It has to happen.

    I respect Khan's fearlessness, but you gotta be worried about his long-term health.

    I am not a fan of boxers not wearing head gears in the Olympics.

    Does anyone else think that PBC is a major flop?

    5 rounds max that Brook can stay in the ring with GGG.

    I don't know much about Kell Brook but if the fight is in London, he must be good enough for this to not be short, right?

    Brook has basically fought no one in his career, moving up to fight GGG. Probably will be very short.

    Trainer was pointing to his eye when he was talking to Brook. I don't know, i didn't see enough to throw in the towel there

    Perhaps throwing it in at that moment was a bit early - but with the way Golovkin went after him in that round I don't think the fight would have went on any longer anyway. If Brook, as he said, saw five Golovkins out there it would just be a matter of time before he would be knocked out. Trainer could have thought similar and decided to not risk further damages.

    After hearing both fighters talk it definitely made more sense. Protecting Brook from further injury in a fight where he couldn't hurt his opponent. On HBO, Triple G said it felt like a sparring match, I had the fight tied but Brook was starting to get overpowered.

    Calling it a sparring match might be a bit of an exaggeration - but Golovkin definitely was in full control.

    Whatever Brook was saying in the post-fight interview that he was gonna take over in the middle rounds was just pride. He knew he was done.
