    Lobov Drops Hammer On Aldo, Calls Him ‘P*ssy’ For Accepting McGregor’s Belt

It kept alive his undefeated streak, and though it didn’t allow Golovkin to ascend to the top of the mythical pound-for-pound list (at least in my estimation), it kept alive his hopes to meet Canelo Alvarez in what would be the biggest fight the sport could entertain.
