    You could see Canelo cutting off the ring/closing the distance....It was always just a matter of time.



    Canelo will deal with GGG.

    Floyd will destroy Pacman again.

    And then Floyd and Canelo will go again.

    All about the $$$$$$$.

    If GGG doesn't respect Canelo's power, he'll go down. Else, it's going to be like a Heavyweight fight.

    Canelo officially ducks Golovkin, vacates belt...

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-cards="hidden" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The <a href="https://twitter.com/WBCBoxing">@WBCBoxing</a> is hereby confirming <a href="https://twitter.com/GGGBoxing">@GGGBoxing</a> as WBC MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD . <a href="https://t.co/m7irGDaUXs">pic.twitter.com/m7irGDaUXs</a></p>&mdash; Mauricio Sulaiman (@wbcmoro) <a href="https://twitter.com/wbcmoro/status/733074919030816770">May 18, 2016</a></blockquote>
    <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    So, Canelo is a cruiserweight at 180-190 on fight night. Then, why all the fuss over a cw at 155?

    what happened to all that tough talk after the fight? "like we say in mexico,we don't **** around" LOL as if that saying is exclusive to Mexicans. well he didn't **** around and promptly gave GGG the title. according to GGG's promoter, talks have stalled since then.

    i don't think its canelo that is scared, but his promoters. he has not ducked anyone at the point. then again, his promoters didn't want him to take a fight vs Lara and Canelo put his foot down and got the fight. he should do the same here. i get it from a business point they want to milk the fight for more money blah blah blah. but for fans, does us no good to keep waiting.

    Thurman-Porter is a epic classic. Definitely a fight of the year.

    Oh man, what a fight! While watching it, I said to my bro, man this is a trilogy in the making. Pretty sure we'll have to pay to see the next one. I think Thurman won, but I didn't think it was unanimous. I expected a SD.

    I was out of the country for this last fight, but sounds like Crawford did his thing again. I saw some headlines about how Pac should avoid him. That's a fight I'd like to see.

    i watched the replay over the weekend. Typical Terrance Crawford fight. Postol had won 2 out of the first three rounds and then Crawford figures him out. Crawford then dominates the rest of the fight. Crawford knocked him down I believe 3 total times. The 2nd knockdown is the one that sticks out in my mind where Postol could have been knocked out if Terrance was able to follow up before Postol's momentum had took him away from Crawford. Crawford looks dangerous if he he were to face Manny, I just dont think Manny has it anymore. As far as who is next for Crawford I'm not privvy enough to know weight classes or anything like that, but what about Mathisse, or Provodkinov or even Danny Garcia?

    Yeah I read the same thing regarding the Crawford fight. As far as opponents, Matthysse just lost to Postol (KO) and Provodnikov recently lost to Matthysse. Garcia is an interesting one. He keeps winning, but hasn't looked that impressive from my recollection. A Mayweather fight seems silly to talk about. I get the feeling Crawford needs more experience. By the time he would have the exp, that fight no longer makes sense. There's always Thurman, Porter, etc.

    it would be nice to see the style of Crawford against the power of Thurman.

    Saw the Andre Ward replay last night. Max made an interesting comment about how Andre Ward needs a boxer like Kovalev to bring the best out of him. I just don't see Ward being able to handle the power.

    Ward strikes me as a guy who will come in absolutely prepared, but his long layoff and the lack of real competition after the layoff is concerning. Then again, not like Kovalev has been taking on big names outside of a 50 year old Hopkins. I guess he beat Pascal twice recently.
