    Murata won’t run. I wouldn’t mind a BJS fight, it’s closer and more significant on paper, but I can see why people don’t want to see Canelo - Lara II.

    I'm glad you agree. It's not like they took the bigger name.

    That's what I was thinking. I would say (Canelo's) people didn't want to see Canelo - Lara II, but I hear you.

    So the guy who runs away is scaring the p4p best active fighter.

    No room for anything else...it was fear.

    They should add Eubank Jr and have a triple threat match

    Canelo will murder Murata. Murata was getting touched up by some Canadian dude in his last outing.

    Not a great fight tbh. Canelo fighting in Japan is interesting though I guess.

    If I never have to watch Lara fight ever again, that would be just fine.

    I have no idea, BJS could have backed out or made an untenable demand for all I know, but I was hoping we'd see that fight and if not, why Murata? I don't get it.

    Honestly, a fight with Eubank jr would't be bad. Canelo is clearly on a different level, but it would be a great scrap for a few rounds.

    Reality is that he knows that he is more than likely taking a a loss. I've heard that he turned down 12M. Asking for 20m. Dude is crazy if he thinks he is getting that type of money. He isn't a super star. He knows he is likely losing to canelo and wants to get paid for it.

    Imagine if Canelo is weight drained and gets KO'd

    Holy fuck I'd actually cry

    Murata isn't awful, but he's got the kind of style that Canelo is going to look great against. I don't think it's a very competitive fight. Still, in terms of business and Canelo going on the road, it's not a bad idea, I guess. I'd rather see several other fights for Canelo, but those don't go away after Cinco de Mayo.

    Wont watch that.

    Not going to say Canelo doesnt deserve a few easy ones like everyone else, or even moreso, but not watching them either.

    Smart move by Canelo's team to re test the waters but as a GGG fan, I don't wish to see him get smoked for a second time. Canelo's needs to move on but I understand there is probably more money fighting GGG. I'd like to see J.Charlo instead.
