Canelo & GGG – Will It Ever Happen?
On this week’s Championship Rounds Craig and Sean look back at Canelo Alvarez’s one sided destruction of Liam Smith last weekend and react to the aftermath from it. With Canelo’s win are we now any closer to seeing one of boxing’s biggest fights that can made in Canelo and GGG now happening? While Craig is a little optimistic the fight will eventually happen Sean well not so much.
“Canelo can talk all the we don’t mess around and we made an offer to GGG stuff he wants. The bottom line is Canelo and Golden Boy don’t feel like they need GGG. Canelo proved that Saturday night when over 50,000 people showed up to see him in a glorified sparring session.”
One potential big fight that won’t happen most likely is Floyd Mayweather fighting UFC star Connor McGregor. Mayweather said this week that he was “moving on” from entertaining that fight ever materializing. However does that mean that Mayweather is done entertaining any future fights in the ring? Not so fast says CCV who says it’s a numbers game that will ultimately get Floyd back in the ring again.
“Floyd does not want to finish his career tied with Rocky Marciano at 49-0. No one has finished their career 50-0. Trust me Floyd is going to come back and get number 50.”
Sean and Craig also move up a few weight classes to discuss the latest with boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. We are about a month away from his rematch with Wladamir Klitschko. Can Fury do it again and show that the first fight was not a fluke or will we see Fury being more a show than actual substance?
The guys finish up as they usually do with their “Low Blows” segment. Sean AKA the Peanut Gallery discuss boxing’s failure to build to the big moment while Craig AKA CCV discusses one fighter who should keep his mouth shut for a little while.
