    WBO said Saunders MUST make his next 2 fights a mandatory.

    WBO now put Canelo ahead of Khurtsidze (who is obviously pissed).


    Saunders must fight Canelo next or vacate the belt.


    Golden Boy said Canelo wont likely return until Cinco De Mayo weekend PPV

    Surely he wont ask for one against BJS? Canelo will beat the piss out of him at any weight.
     
  5. What a strange sport.

    Chavez Jr. Makes him more money but Saunders gets him a middleweight belt. I would probably just go with Jr if I were him.

    Canelo vs Liam Smith on PPV was a disgrace to American fans.

    I like it. Another 160 lb title to add to the GGG show down.
    Why is it that I seem to be the only one who cares about unifying belts and cleaning out divisions around here?

    I'm not high on BJS at all. However, I don't get people saying how JR would be a much more competitive fight.
    I think Canelo steamrolls and looks impressive against both. Have people seen Jrs resume and fights (and lack there of ) over the past few years. Its not impressive at all. In fact its bad.
    Call me Crazy but I think the guy who is/can
    -An active full time fighter
    -Undefeated
    -Current Champ and Belt holder
    -Can actually make it through a training camp
    -Can actually train in a boxing gym
    -Can actually make a weight
    -Has fought and beat the better opponents
    -wont quit on his still
    vs
    A name sake at this point.
    I get that BJS may be easy pickings. but JR is not anything better. Its easy pickings minus the belt and weight class cleaning.

    Hate to shit on BJS but

    Will have 1 fight in 1.5 years
    "Undefeated" against Andy Lee and Artur Akakov
    Current "Champ" when he shouldve been stripped for inactivity and shouldve lost his last fight
    Almost didnt make weight for his last fight
    Should not have beaten Andy Lee. JCC's almost KO'd Sergio Martinez.

    I wouldnt mind this if this was for Canelo's Feb free comeback fight as originally planned, but now they are saying Canelo's next fight is most likely Cinco de Mayo PPV regardless of who he's fighting.

    Why did you quote every one of the facts I listed with an opinion or excuse.... You get that they are facts even if you want to discredit them, right?

    All his "almosts" "maybes" and "what ifs" are still above JR actually doing and not doing that stuff.

    I feel like posting predictions will get redundant pretty quick.

    But the UFC is a private promotion whereas boxing laughably pretends to be a legit worldwide sport.
