Watch: Joe Rogan Reacts Live To Canelo/GGG Decision Straight After Predicting A Corrupted Outcome

Joe Rogan watched Canelo/GGG live and correctly predicted that a controversial decision would occur, despite the fact that virtually everyone gave the fight to the Kazakhstani, Gennady Golovkin.

The biggest boxing matchup of the year is now in the past but even though fans were treated to a riveting encounter between two of the very best in the business, massive controversy over the judges’ decision was the major talking point when all was said and done in the ring.

One judge scored the fight as a 115-114 to ‘Triple G’ while shockingly, another gave it to Canelo by a frankly ridiculous margin of 118-110. The third judge called it 114-114 and as a result the fight was declared a stalemate and if the post-fight interviews are to be believed, we should expect to see Canelo/GGG 2 become a reality in the near future.

All things considered, the bout lived up to the massive expectations the world had placed upon it but again, like with so many fights in the past, the decision made by the judges after the scheduled twelve rounds left many questioning the integrity of the sport and though a rematch is now virtually guaranteed, the fact that Golovkin’s clear victory was robbed left a sour taste in the mouths of those invested.

Joe Rogan broadcast another edition of his popular Fight Companion podcast during the contest and funnily enough, alluded to the possibility that the Mexican Canelo would be given rounds generously by the judges as a result of his popularity and the immense financial gain a rematch between these two would bring about.

Rogan, just seconds before hearing how the fight was called, cited his friend Brendan Schaub’s prediction that some dodgy scoring would be a factor and reacted live to the news directly after hearing the fight’s somewhat questionable result.
