Dela Hoya may not agree to a Canelo-Golovkin Fight

canelo14By Idris Morrey: The kind of talent waiting to face Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is growing steadily by the day. Names are coming up and they have convincing records to deserve a match-up with the hard hitting Mexican.

The worrying bit is whether Canelo Alvarez’s promoter and Golden boy president Oscar Dela Hoya will really accept to let lose one of his from from the stable to face the dangerous middleweight fighters. From earlier on, it was expressed during the All Access Showtime episodes that De La Hoya was against Canelo fighting the Cuban Boxer Erislandy Lara. From his style, the left- handed Lara has been a dreaded fighter. Oscar publicly confessed that he did not want Canelo to face the Cuban. In their recent fight, it became evident that Dela Hoya’s fear was real from the beginning

Oscar is doing an injustice to this sport by wanting to avoid matching the best with the best. By also openly denying Lara a rematch, he opened the possibility of again denying unbeaten fighters in the division a chance in the ring with his Mexican red hair former champion.

In the light and middleweight class, Canelo should live up to his word that he fights the fans choice by going by their choice. He should once more rebel against Dela Hoya’s cherry pick and listen to his fan base. He chose a threat in Lara, now its time to point at another kill.

I honor Canelo for Fighting Current pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr because by so doing he proved how daring he can be and also portrayed him as a true fighter in the sport.

Big name right now is fighting this weekend and my advice to Canelo is to watch that match. Gennady Golovkin against former 160-pound titlist Daniel Geale. Alvarez has the chance to redeem his position as a future superstar in boxing if he can go past Golovkin.

Popularly known as GGG, Golovkin has been unleashing his power on opponents winning 26 of his 29 pro fights via knockouts. Canelo Too has a good record having only lost once in his 46 career fights.

Better match-ups like these ones seem not to please one Oscar Dela Hoya when every fan is calling out for them. Someone tell Oscar that someone else is fighting and not him if his fear is seeing blood and swelling.
