Mayweather should fight Golovkin at 154, says Mancini

golovkin444By Allan Fox: Former world champion Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini thinks that WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26 KOs) should come down to 154 to face WBA middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) at a catch-weight in order to gain his respect and to give the fans a great fight.

Mancini has zero respect for Mayweather fighting Andre Berto (30-3, 23 KOs) in his next fight on September 12th, if that’s who Mayweather winds up facing next. Mancini sees that fight as a waste of time for Mayweather because it’s such a mismatch.

Mancini – Canelo’s an ordinary fighter; Lara beat him

canelo06By Dan Ambrose: Former WBA lightweight champion Ray Mancini thinks that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) is an ordinary fighter with marginal skills, and that he should have been given a defeat in his fight against Erislandy Lara this month.

Mancini, like many other boxing experts, feels that Lara out-boxed Canelo for 12 rounds, but ultimately lost the fight to the house fighter, the guy that brings in more money for the sport of boxing.

Mancini thinks that Canelo’s trainers haven’t taught him the things that he needs to know, and that they were exposed for what they didn’t tell him in Canelo’s loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mancino thinks Canelo is a big puncher, but not a skilled one and not one that can handle any kind of movement.

They both seem to be an even match up in punching power speed size strength and extremely hittable.
