    This is completely unofficial, but we’re passing along what we heard. The latest is that Mexican star Saúl Canelo Álvarez checked into a private hospital in Guadalajara on Friday morning to undergo arthroscopy knee surgery. He could possibly leave Saturday. More details to come if and when available.



    Guess your body starts to fall apart pretty quick when you go cold turkey off those mexican tacos.

    If he's got an injury, now is the time to fix it seeing as he'll be on forced vacation.

    He put to much mass on his upper body, and his joints can compensate. Reminds me of them 60 year old women on PEDs

    I can think of lots of boxers who had knee surgery and were never the same after.

    Can't think of any off the top of my head who came back as good or better.

    The only 2 knee-fuckery that come to mind are Yuri Foreman and Sergio Martinez, but they had recurring knee injuries since they were kids.

    On the other hand, theres plenty of elite MMA fighters who had knee surgeries and were fine

    Sharmba Mitchell comes to mind with a few others whose name I am not recalling at the moment.

    MMA is pretty different. You have so many more tools you can rely on and still be successful. Hell lots of fights are just ground game. Boxing comes from the legs no mater what you're doing. Movement, punching power, taking a punch, the roadwork you do for conditioning. A bad knee in boxing is a career killer.

    Look how Connor did in boxing because he has a bad knee and won't do roadwork. He got knocked out by a retired boxer who hadn't knocked anyone out in like 7 years because of his conditioning. Yet in MMA he beats almost everyone and is the most hyped and popular fighter alive. Different sport altogether.

    LOL. So much silly rage from the haters over this whole situation. I bet some of you guys love and praise Shane Mosley though.

    I dont think Ive ever seen so much outrage over a hot piss test from a fighter.

    Its interesting. I think its a combo of people already not caring for him and fucking up the fight with Golovkin moreso than actual outrage about using Clen.
