It is widely expected that Canelo will fight in September again and there are a number of interesting options for him on the table. Who should be next for Canelo Alvarez?
Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (50-3-1, 32 KOs) is set to return on June 22nd in Mexico, ending a two-year layoff. Chavez last fought in 2017 against Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs).
It wasn’t too long ago that Canelo was universally loved in the boxing world.
For a late replacement, Ruiz Jr. is pretty good. Some might even argue that Ruiz Jr. is a better opponent than Miller originally was.
Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) will face Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) this Saturday. It is a highly-anticipated fight that promises high-level action but for Jacobs, this is hardly the biggest fight of his life.
Should Crawford get past Khan this Saturday, he will have many options that he could face (barring boxing politics). But just how far can he go, what is his ceiling? If he maximizes his potential, where will that leave him?
This Saturday night in Carson, California, Danny Garcia (34-2, 20 KOs) will square off against Adrian Granados (20-6, 14 KOs) live on Fox. It will be Garcia’s first fight since dropping a split decision to Shawn Porter (30-2, 17 KOs) last September. It was Garcia’s second attempt at claiming the coveted WBC welterweight title but he fell just short in a tightly contested fight.
Next up for Khan is the fighter many consider to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, and boy what an upset would it be if Khan could pull it off…
Vasiliy Lomachenko is back and he has no shortage of opponents. Whether its a fellow champion, a solid contender, a rising star, or another elite fighter, Lomachenko has options. It will be interesting to see which fights get made and whether he can continue to prove he is among the pound for pound greats.
Should these two fighters meet, it would be the most anticipated fight in a long time and we would have the chance to see the absolute two best welterweights on the planet share the ring. These two have risen to the top, and pundits would undoubtedly be split about who would win. This is as 50/50 as a fight gets.
Boxing is one of the few sports where a father and son can reach the pinnacle of the sport together. Many fathers have trained their sons since childhood and have seen them become world champions. Here are five of the best father/son duos in boxing (in no particular order).
With that feather in his cap, Spence strengthened his position as the best welterweight on the planet, but where does he rank in the pound-for- pound list ? Does he crack the top 5 ? Lets see.
This Saturday, two of boxing’s top pound-for-pound fighters will square off when Errol Spence Jr. (24-0, 21KO’s) defends his IBF welterweight title against four-division world champion Mikey Garcia (39-0, 30KO’s) in Dallas, Texas. The fight, which will be broadcast by Fox Pay-Per-View, is highly anticipated by many fans and boxing media alike, but also criticized by others.
