chavez is a good step up in competition for GGG. Best fighter he has faced. Would like to see how he handles Chavez aggressive style and body punches. Can GGG hurt Chavez? Dude has an iron chin

But we all know this fight wont happen. Top Rank only does in-house fights!!

This weekend, Molina vs. Charlo but Molina is in jail. Molina is not with Golden Boy.

March 8
Showtime PPV
TOE TO TOE: CANELO VS. ANGULO






Canelo Alvarez [#3 WBA] vs. Alfredo Angulo [#7 WBA]
Leo Santa Cruz vs. Cristian Mijares [#6 WBC] for Cruz’ WBC Junior Featherweight Championship
Omar Figueroa vs. Ricardo Alvarez [#12 WBC Super Lightweight] for Figueroa’s WBC Lightweight Championship [CANCELED]
Carlos Molina vs. Jermall Charlo [#14 IBF] for Molina’s IBF Jr. Middleweight Championship [CANCELED]
Jorge Linares [#5 WBC] vs. Nihito Arakawa [#2 WBC] for WBC Lightweight Eliminator
Ricardo Alvarez vs. Sergio Thompson for Alvarez’ WBC Continental Americas' Light Welterweight Championship

Showtime Boxing

Francisco Vargas [#2 WBO/#11 WBC] vs. Abner Cotto for Vargas’ NABF and WBO Intercontinental Super Featherweight Championships

-----

First PPV of the year and it is down 2 fights.

Canelo vs. Angulo is a 50/50 fight. Not sure how Canelo's chin holds up, he's never faced a puncher like Angulo. Canelo needs to box and not fight ...

Santa Cruz by late stoppage.

I had Figueroa by UD, but with this fight being canceled Sergio Thompson is in. Never seen him fight before so not sure.

Molina vs. Charlo. I had Charlo by a close decision but with Molina in jail, fight is called off ...

Linares by late stoppage.

Canelo-Angulo has been a complete disaster from top to bottom

Canelo just came in at 155, Angulo at 154.5

It was announced last minute that the fight had an allowed max of 155

Turns out this new max weight wasn't even agreed upon until this morning when Canelo's people informed Angulo's that Cinnamon wasn't going to be able to make the 154 limit

So Angulo's people said Ginger can't weight in at 168 by tomorrow for a second weight in.

Molina will apparently be in jail until Monday ... Should have been with Al Haymon. He just bailed out Antonio Tarver from jail.

Wait your turn like everyone else.

Not saying it's right but I heard in order for Lomachenko to sign with Arum, he demanded that he get title shots early and he didn't want to fight tomato cans.

The kid is very commendable and I think he should rematch Salido as his next fight. He would beat him...he seemed too concerned with pacing himself but he went 12 rounds just fine.

The thing about losing early in your career is that you don't have to worry about your 0 loss record and can just fight all the big fights.

2 fights canceled...I'm still ordering the fight. the UFC has a PPV every damn week so I don't mind paying for a boxing PPV.

I'm a big fan of Linares even though he's had some crushing losses and I believe Angulo will beat CAnelo. And can't miss the chance to see Leo Santa Cruz!

Sergio Thompson can punch as well so that should be an interesting fight.

I hope you guys post some links. I think Alvarez edges Angulo, but it's gonna be a very competitive fight. I hope Canelo don't end up as the next Fernando Vargas.
