Are promoters and managers showcasing their fighters on the big stage too soon?

By Joseph Herron: On Saturday night, October 27th, on HBO Boxing After Dark, highly touted prospect Thomas Dulorme (16-1, 12 KOs) was stopped in dramatic fashion against hard punching Welterweight contender Carlos Abregu of Argentina in the eighth round of the main event of the evening.

And after many cautious maneuvers to properly cultivate Canelo’s confidence and skill level, the legendary boxing pundit has finally deemed Saul Alvarez fit to wreak havoc on the entire Junior Middleweight division.

“Sometimes you have to protect a fearless fighter like Canelo from himself,” professes the six decade boxing proponent. “He wants to fight the best fighters available. Canelo has stated adamantly that he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto; and up until September 15th, I was always very hesitant about it…but not anymore.”
