i guess floyd's crusade/campaign for better testing was pretty warranted...
Damn, the brothas fckin up.

SMH im pissed. Just booked my flight and bought tickets for Bertortiz last week! On top of that, i have to catch a redeye back to Houston that night because i have work the next morning. Too late to cancel so i have to suck it up. Hopefully MAttheyse vs Soto is the war that it could be. But damn, not what I was expecting.

KInd of funny that Berto accused Ortiz of juicing, and some said Khan was doing the same thing just by association with Roach and Ariza, and it ends up their opponents were the ones cheating. I think its time for the commissions to implement random testing for all fights.

that would be best. or at least for high-profile or title fights if its gonna be too expensive.

Canelo has a huge chance of beating PW.

Damn Saul Alvarez is 21 years old with 40 - 0 record since entering professional ring when he was 15? Has he been fighting that many tomato cans?

This is an interesting decisions by golden boy. Canelo is a slight favorite but he could easily lose that fight

Seems like not too long ago when everybody was afraid of Paul Williams.

Now Canelo will beat him up?? That's just sad........
What's canelos best win? A Mosley who'd been shot for three years or Matthew hatton. Let's not act like Canelo is a world class fighter just yet(he might be, we just don't know it yet)

I don't think it's a danger in the sense that Williams could beat him up or hurt him, but Williams is an extremely high work rate fighter(or at least has the ability to be) and Canelo routinely gives away rounds by not doing anything. Couple that with the fact that Canelo doesn't really have one punch ko power and it's easy to see this turning into a split decision that they bitch about later

I like Canelo vs PWill. Good test for the young kid. Remember, the kid got dropped by Jose Cotto. So lets see how he handles the pressure that PWill brings.

Sure, the kid has fought many tomato cans, but at least he is staying active. Better than fighting once or twice a year like Sergio Martinez. Plus he draws bigger crowds than many so called established boxers.
