n this episode of Troy’s Life Vlog Season 2 or Troy’s Terrible Vlog. I reflect on my early college years. This video is also a part of my My Autistic Spectrum/ADHD/Learning Disabilities Experience series/playlist. Even though I struggled in college, and looking back I don’t see a realistic scenario in which I would have graduated. I am better off for the experience. As you may know from my past videos experience is the only to gain Social Skills which is the most valuable commodity/currency in the world. Looking back at being 18-20. It was an age that I wanted to be able to stand on my own two feet. Be, do and have the responsibilities. That I thought an adult was supposed to take on. It’s not a good age to be dealing with any kind of learning disability.

Do Athletes Have A Right/Responsibility To Use Their Platform For Political Action? Personally I don’t like politics. I don’t really fell comfortable talking about them. I think they do more to divide us than bring people together. However, they are a fact of life. They are more and more a part of sports. To a certain extent, politics have always been a part of sports. However it is more prominent now. Athletes as well as other participants in sports. Such as coaches, owners, media. Are given a platform that most of us are not given. They have the right to use that platform to express their political opinions. They have the same rights and responsibilities as the rest of us when it comes to political action and protest. This is not about rather or not we agree or disagree with their cause. It’s about their right to use their platform for political action. Do athletes have a responsibility to use their platform for political action? Like the rest of us athletes have the right to chose to be or not be politically active. There are athletes who chose to be politically active and those who chose not to be politically active. Like the rest of us they should have the choice to be or not be politically active. Please let me know what you think in the commit section.

I think Canelo/GGG is a 50/50 fight. That being said I’m picking GGG to win.
I think in the early going their styles will off set each other. GGG will look to apply pressure behind his battering ram jab. He will be held in check by Canelo’s counter punches which will also be held in check by GGG’s battering ram jab. Judges when in doubt tend to favor the busier boxer. Which in the early-mid rounds will be Canelo. He’s also the “A” side which will also give him an advantage in close rounds. I’m expecting that there are going to be a lot of close rounds that are going to be debated after the fight. GGG’s best argument to win close rounds is to be the aggressor. Like being busier, it’s about creating an illusion of control. I think because of this Canelo is likely to be a head through 3/4 of the fight.
Looking at GGG/Brook, GGG/Jacobs, Canelo/Mayweather and Canelo/Khan. Both GGG and Canelo can be out boxed. While I think both have excellent boxing skills. I don’t think either is as good as the opponents who gave each issues. Don’t expect a 12 round shoutout.
I think Canelo will be the boxer and GGG the pressure fighter. If this fight was fought at light middleweight down. Canelo would box his way to a clear decision. However, starting at middleweight. Size and power starts to make up for skill. I think GGG’s battering ram jab is going to find its target as the rounds progress. Which will open up more shots. I can say with confidence that GGG has one shot stopping power at midddelweight. I can say Canelo is a very good boxer, and has aculmitive punching power at middleweight, but I can’t say based on one fight above light middleweight. (The Cotto fight was at 155 that’s a light middleweight fight).
I think Canelo will land enough punches to win rounds, but not enough to hold GGG off as the fight progresses. I think in the 10th, 11th, or 12th round(s) . GGG is going to drop Canelo. I think if the fight goes to the cards. I think Canelo will be slightly ahead. I would not be surprised by any close decision either way Even a split decision or draw. However I think GGG stops Canelo late in what will be an enjoyable boxing match.
