The fight won't happen anyways. Neither fighter will fight on the rival network. But there's plenty of good opponents for him on HBO down the road: Murray. Chavez, Pirog, Martinez, winner of Geale/Barker. I really do hope that HBO really pressures Martinez to fight Golovkin next year, though.
He should fight Canelo once he moves up to 160 next year.

At that point it was a high risk no reward type of fight....plus GGG, lets face it, was a relative unknown. I dont really think Quillin nor GGG is scared of each other, they are both strong as **** and by far the biggest punchers in their division, just sucks that fight will never happen(Abel and K2 promotions said if the fight was to happen Quillin will have to fight in HBO, which is impossible)

Golden Boy will be debuting a series on the brand new Fox Sports station (FS1), August 19th called "Golden Boy Live."

It will air Monday nights. I'm familiar with watching guys perform inside a ring (wrestling) on Monday, so this should work out fine.

I must have missed the press conference or they started late. Got there at like 1:25, seen Mayweather for like 5 minute than he jetted inside around 1:30. I didn't see Canelo, I was there till about 2 PM then left .

Shit load of Mexicans, seen about 11 brotha's and one white boy.

Yeah. It must be a funny Russian-to-Engish translation thing. Always makes me chuckle.

martinez said he would be willing to fight golovkin, but only after he has one fight prior. and right now he is rehabing his injured knee

that would likely mean mid 2014 or later i would guess

but.. i still think it wont happen.

Mayweather said he's gonna most likely fight beyond his 6 fight deal with Showtime.

2016, Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.

Floyd generally uses Grant gloves, which he'll also be wearing against Canelo. Actually, both fighters will be using Grant gloves. Floyd has occasionally worn Winnings as well, but not as often lately.

If you want to be completely accurate, both guys will be wearing 10-ounce Grant gloves. That's the normal size gloves for 154-pounders.
