It is what it is man…they had Paul Williams in line next unfortunaly he suffered a serious motorcycle crash. Inking Williams was perfect (he himself being an avoided fighter) Alvarez is a serious deal, he ain’t your run of the mill 22 yr old boxer and his weight class knows this, his last opponents…Aging Shane Mosley (not their first choice I’m sure), Alfonso Gomez, Kermit Cintron, Carlos Baldimir, Matthew Hatton as opposed to James Kirkland, Alfredo Angulo, Vanes Martirosian, Miguel Cotto, Sergiy Dzinzuik, etc. If he gets passed Lopez, they gotta make it a point to ink one of the latter mentioned guys next.

I got Lopez on this one he looks to be holding the weight he’s gonna use his reach and movement to confuse Canelo. UD Lopez a new star is gonna be born.

No sin here; having a non PPV option is great.

Can’t wait for Lopez to lose so I don’t have to hear about how he’s “rocky”. He was in a tough fight with Ortiz, who isn’t the greatest fighter ever..but until he got his jaw broke, Ortiz gave just as good as he got and probably would’ve won (but he didn’t, I know).

A very well-written and intelligent article-for a change. I agree that it may be a difficult choice for fans. Was it good business sense to have such competition one the same evening? Would it not have been better to have scheduled these fights at different times so that the boxing fans could benefit from both? We all know that boxing fans deserve a lot better than they have been getting. Personally, I prefer to watch Martinez-Chavez but I also want to see Lopez-Alvarez. I know that I’m not alone in this situation. Bad business sense.

What up dawg?? It’s been a while since I’ve seen your name popup! But I agree, Canelo’s style is nice, but the dude needs to step it up!
