At this point, that's a 15 lb water cut for Canelo if he is fighting next week, which is totally fine. But he is a whole month out..if he can drop a few more lbs by the time he is one week out, it should be a super easy cut for him. Considering that he didn't drain a bit of weight to get to 167 for the 30 day weigh-in.

Curtis is lucky he is getting such a high profile fight imo. Matthysse could easily fight at 135, if he's not messing with Garcia by draining a little bit of weight for the 30 day weigh-in.

Did you watch episode 4 of Adrien Broner's "About Billions"? Lol.

Damn last week served up some great entertaining fights

Friday Night Fights (ESPN): Had two wars a rematch where a wild brawl took place and in the main event one of my favorites Gabriel Campillo (should probably retire now imo) was winning before getting stopped by Andrzej Fonfara.

Than had Kovalev smash Cleverly and the Geale vs Barker fight had everything in it, what a great weekend of fights This is what boxing should be evenly matched fights with fireworks nothing more amazing to watch than that for me.

Golden Boy Live was nice. Much better than ShoBox and Friday Night Fights. I put it on the level of NBC's Fight Night.

Damn, is this upset of the year or what. Top 5 pound for pound getting dropped twice in the first round. I think Santa Cruz jumps in his spot now.

Did y'all see De La Hoya's face, he looked pissed. He was building him up earlier this week saying he could overtake Mayweather for #1 pound for pound. And I was on De La Hoya's side too ...
