Reddit Canelo Vs Chavez

TKO with odds of -1400 Liam Smith on September 17th, 2016. Arlington, Texas' AT&T Stadium. TKO with odds of -1400 to win. Amir Khan vs. May 7th, 2016. Paradise, Nevada's T-Mobile Arena. KO with odds of -650

In terms of the fight itself, Alvarez says he'd want it to take place at Azteca Stadium if it were to take place (let's entertain the possibility). It won't be there since Top Rank and Golden Boy could probably get a good deal from the MGM Grand. It should be in Mexico, where everyone would still earn a fortune, but, you know. Alvarez expects to fight again before the end of the year, while Chavez is scheduled to face Peter Manfredo Jr on November 19 on HBO.

So, eventually, boxing will stage the greatest battle in its history. Canelo Alvarez has agreed to face Gennady Golovkin. And we all payed $70 to see them make the announcement. It's times like these that make you understand how cold and calculated the boxing industry is. The UFC can't compete with Golden Boy's deliberate, systematic cash grab techniques. They staged many multi-million dollar bouts that no one wanted to witness, despite the fact that the entire boxing fan community pleaded for Canelo/GGG. They maintained a stone cold poker face the whole time, as if they didn't need it. And then, just when it seems that the tide is about to flip, when public discontent is about to hit an all-time high, and there isn't another battle to sell, the Stephen A Smiths drop the fucking mic on us. Nobody knows the long con like boxing.

Do you believe Canelo would be unstoppable if he chooses to be a defensive-first boxer? If he wants to, I think he can avoid 90 percent of the oncoming blows. He only gets struck because he applies a lot of pressure and delivers hard blows. He has the finest head movement we've ever seen, in my opinion. Despite the loss to Bivol, I was impressed by his avoidance of Bivol's 7-9 straight blows in round 9. I recall him doing his insane head movent flawlessly throughout the bout against Daniel Jacobs. If he concentrates on defense and counterattack like Mayweather, I believe he will be invincible and unbeatable. His knockout victories may also grow.
