GGG by stoppage. There's a video of GGG and Chavez sparring from a few years back, I just saw it the other day and GGG spanked Chavez, beat him in everyway. Outboxed him, bullied him on the inside, cut off the ring on him, dodging most of his punches, just plain out put a beating on him. Chavez didnt look to happy by the end of it.
Chavez is more of a money fight, GGG is the world beater. GGG vs Ward is better fight to watch than Ward vs Chavez only because there's more of a mystery for the outcome. I think throwing Chavez to GGG to get his stock to rise alittle bit, then throw in him in there with Ward. Now HBO has 3 ppv fighters compared to 0.
If These 2 suckas fight eachother on PPV then the winner BETTER be vsing Ward on PPV or I have no hope for HBO and TR.
"Sparring sessions" and "a few years back", don't really help to drive your point here. As I always make a point of, sparring with bigger gloves and the fact that both guys don't have a payday on the line, doesn't say much.
You'd have to ask yourself...since then, who has Julio fought, versus, who GGG has fought? A significant difference there...
You'd also have to ask...how far away from a fight was Julio or GGG when the sparring session took place? Was Chavez closer to am upcoming fight, than GGG was? I'm asking that, because guys run to the rescue of Floyd, when that Spadafora sparring session is brought up. Floyd was nearly 3 months PAST a fight that he had, and Paul was about 2-3 weeks away from an upcoming fight, so maybe Floyd wasn't in that great of shape around that time. '
Oh oh oh wait..."Floyd's always in the gym, and he's always in shape". The same has been said about Floyd not drinking...but he has. Not trying to ream you here, but guys pick and choose when they want a sparring session to matter, not fair. You'd think that fighters who have sparred in the past (and bested their opponent), would go into a real fight with them and pick up where they left off...but that isn't always the case.
