Championship Rounds w/ Craig Carlos-Valentino & Sean Thompson- The Biggest Disappointment in Boxing is…This week the guys let everyone know what they are most disappointed in right now in the sport of boxing. The PG talks about how his biggest disappointment not only disappoints himself, but ultimately the sport of boxing. Speaking of potential disappointment, the guys discuss If Canelo Alvarez ends up not fighting GGG, will that hurt Canelo’s legacy in boxing? The guys are divided on this, but Craig definitely recognizes Canelo’s current fan base isn’t ever going anywhere. “Canelo could be fighting at the state fair and he’s still going to have thousands of fans out there supporting him no matter what.” The guys discuss the impact of the 100 million dollar lawsuit that was dismissed this week between Top Rank Boxing and Al Haymon. Was this move done to not hurt boxing or was there another reason a settlement was reached between the two parties? The guys weigh in on that and discuss where Haymon’s Premier Boxing Championship has failed in its year plus of existence. PG and CCV also discuss how they would have made the PBC better if either of them were given the 500 million dollars Al Haymon was to execute it.
