title Canelo doesn’t have the power to make GGG fight cautiously

By Chris Williams: Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) has a high 67% knockout percentage after 12 years as a pro, but apparently he’s not as big a puncher as people think he is, according to Gennady “GGG” Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez. He says former IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux is a bigger puncher than Canelo. Sanchez uses Canelo’s inability to knockout the depleted Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last Saturday night as an example of Canelo not having the kind of knockout power that people believe him to possession.

title Alvarez vs. Golovkin: Canelo can stop Gennady says Reynoso

By Allan Fox: Saul “Canelo” Alvarez’s team seems convinced that he’ll not only add Gennady “GGG” Golovkin’s scalp to his collection but he’ll beat him in style by knocking out the 35-year-old Triple G. Canelo’s trainer Eddy Reynoso believes that Canelo can knockout Golovkin to become the best fighter in boxing today. Reysosa gained confident in the 26-year-old Canelo after watching him dominate former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. by a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision last Saturday night in a catchweight fight at 164.5 pounds on HBO pay-per-view at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

title Canelo-Golovkin: De La Hoya wants Saul to KO GGG

By Allan Fox: Oscar De Hoya says he wants to see a knockout for his fighter Saul “Canelo” Alvarez over Gennady “GGG” Golovkin in their fight on September 16. De La Hoya says a win for the 26-year-old Canelo will make him the No.1 pound-for-pound fighter in boxing, and he’s probably right about that. The current No.1 pound for pound fighter Andre Ward earned the No.1 spot off of a highly controversial decision win over Sergey Kovalev last November. Read the rest of this entry »



title Brook to Spence: “You’ve made a big mistake, boy”

By Scott Gilfoid: Kell Brook has less than 3 weeks remaining before he defends his IBF welterweight title against arguably the most talented fighter in the 147 pound division today in Errol Spence Jr. on May 27 at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England. The boxing world may be seeing the end of Brook as a world champion at 147, because if he loses badly, as many people expect him to, the next move the 30-year-old makes without question will end with him moving up to 154. However, Brook is putting up a good front by talking tough to Spence in an attempt to throw off his game by putting the scare on him. Read the rest of this entry »

title Video: Golovkin is MUCH bigger puncher than Canelo says Chavez Jr

By Jeff Aranow: Following his loss last Saturday night, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. says the punching power of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is not in the same league as Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, who he feels is a MUCH better power puncher than the redheaded Golden Boy Promotions star.

By Dan Ambrose: Trainer Abel Sanchez says his task in preparing Gennady Golovkin for a fight against Saul Canelo Alvarez on September 16 will be easier than it was to get ready for Daniel Jacobs last March.

title Canelo-Golovkin with rematch clause in contract

By Dan Ambrose: Golden Boy Promotions reportedly has a rematch clause in the contract for September 16 Saul “Canelo” Alvarez versus Gennady “GGG” Golovkin fight. If Golovkin beats Canelo, then he must fight him again if Canelo decides to request the rematch. But if Canelo wins, then he doesn’t have to give Golovkin a rematch. Canelo can move on and fight whoever he wants. That doesn’t exactly sound fair to GGG, because he’s the world champion with 3 world titles in his possession and Canelo just a popular challenger.
