Triple GGG at MSG, Wish We Could Remember More
Fight Night at MSG
Three members of the FTS Fantasy Football league went to Madison Square Garden on Saturday night to watch the Gennady Golovkin versus David Lemieux championship boxing match. So, three ‘bros’ went to the fights and a comedy ensued. The main event would unify the WBA (Super), IBO, IBF and interim WBC Middleweight titles. The fight card also included Flyweights Ramon Gonzalez vs. Brian Viloria. This march stood out because it featured a fighter with one of the best nicknames ever, “Chocolatito” Gonzalez.
What Did FTS Miss?
Our editorial team was prepared to cover the event in real-time and publish a story after the fight. But, with the excitement of NLCS Game 1 Mets vs. Cubs, gentlemen bets, and a lethal mix of Maker’s Mark, vodka and some beers, fight night was a bit of a blur. So was or commute home. FTS did learn from post-fight coverage that GGG defeated Lemieux with an 8th round TKO. Golovkin Moved to an impressive 34-0 with 31 wins via knockout. We will certainly watch the replay on October 24 on HBO.
To Team Rich and the “Commish”, you missed a great night. Thanks to Team Vega for the images and the short video from the party. Let’s get ready to rumble! By the way, in hopes of ending one of the most hotly debated issues of the night, FTS still believes Alexis Arguello is best Latin fighter in boxing history. Roberto Duran was amazing, but we can’t get over “No Mas.” Thanks to a friend of the league Mike for the invite. Thankfully FTS arrived safely to his home, down one iPhone, but with his faculties intact.
