I'm not a boxing expert but seemed to me like GGG got robbed. He easily seemed like the boxer in control tonight.  Either way--I very much enjoyed watching the fight. 

 Boxing is about enjoying the fight.

neither of us won.  i'll send back your money.  fuuuuuuuuuuck

When I watch it, looks like I will think you won.  I can't rebate a draw but I would have a bs win on my side.   We all know Conor had at least 2 out of 3 first rounds at least but got one on one card.  It is bs or the general/big boxing fan has no idea how boxing is scored or it is corrupt as hell.

2 non  Mexicans at my house had Canelo even. Said Canelo punches were bigger. Not sure about that. 

What were the other score cards?  Canelo definitely seemed to land some good power, but GGG matched him and had activity, aggression and jabs in his favor.

judges are a part of boxing.  We pushed the bet. Great fight either way.  Maybe we can do it again on the rematch.

If Conor won any rounds something's off.

There are like 20 people at my house right now. Not sure exactly about all the cards.

I could see how people would see it that way, to be honest.  Canelo threw with more power.  I don't think his punches landed as well as the crowd did, and GGG countered effectively, but I could see how people looking for the big punch would've given a few more rounds to Canelo.  He fights a very viewer-friendly style.  Sits on the ropes and picks his spots while GGG picks him apart punch-by-punch.

I'm not sure i agree with any of this. GGG was the aggressor with more power.
