Over the weekend, Garcia faced off with his toughest challenge up to date against Romero Duno (21-2, 16 KO’s) of the Philippines. Well that was on paper at least.
In front of a packed house at the MGM Grand and Casino in Las Vegas, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (51-1-2, 36KOs) proved why he is one of the best fighters in the world today.
Garcia is looking to prove his doubters wrong and showcase his talents. Romero Duno on the other hand is looking to beat Garcia and put his name in the conversation as an elite lightweight fighter.
On Saturday, November 2nd, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (52-1-2, 35KOs) will move up two weight classes to face off against WBO Lightheavyweight Champion, Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (34-3-1, 29KOs) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
While Kovalev may not be in his absolute prime, he is still a supremely dangerous opponent. Should Canelo get the victory this Saturday, it would be hard to argue that he is not the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet. But some believe that Kovalev will pull an upset…
2019 has been a memorable year so far, full of upsets and comebacks. As we reach the final months of the year, it’s time to review who the best fighters in boxing are. Who has cracked our pound-for-pound list ? Let’s see.

Will we see the return of destroyer Munguia, the continuation of lack-lustre Munguia, or will Allotey become boxing’s new breakout star? We will find out tonight.
Most cases point to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs), Vasiliy Lomachenko (14-1-0, 10 KOs), and Terence Crawford (35-0-0, 26 KOs) as the top 3 (in no particular order). Let’s take a look at each boxer to see how they stack up…
Gervonta “Tank” Davis (22-0, 21KOs) has vacated his WBA (Super) Lightweight title and moved up to the stacked super lightweight division. He automatically becomes the #1 contender for the 135 pound WBA title. Will his promotion team allow him to fight Vasiliy “Hi-Tek” Lomachenko straight away?
It’s kind of funny because GGG was originally stripped of his IBF title for not fighting then mandatory challenger, Derevyanchenko, as a late replacement for Canelo.
There have been rumors flying for the past couple months about who Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (52-1-2, 35KOs) will fight next. A lot has happened recently. A lot of names being mentioned, some changes in the division. One thing is for certain though – no matter who Canelo fights, boxing fans will be tuning in for it.
Cancio proved it was their first fight was no fluke, as he stopped Machado again last Friday; this time quicker, to retain his “regular” WBA 130 pound title.
