    I heard. Brook is skilled and can hit for a welterweight. But he will be demolished in the end. Kudos for him to step up, unlike most middleweights right now. The purse sure is intoxicating. The O2 Area in England will be electric. Another GGG event I can not wait for. The arena will be sold out. Incredible night.

    Canelo to face Chavez Jr. on the fifth of May, 2017 -at a catch weight of no more than 164.5. But Canelo kept saying he was a Jr. middleweight and wouldn't, couldn't, face GGG at 160 and gave up his middleweight belt to avoid GGG! Some "tough Mexican", Some fighter. Some player. By doing this he's already given GGG the win by default.

    To be completely fair, Canelo is probably more "white" than GGG. In fact, he is.

    Doesn't change Canelo's decisions. And, our enemies favor Canelo over GGG.

    Chavez will be a very live underdog in this fight. Maybe Canelo bit off too much. A well conditioned Chavez will be a handful for a small middleweight. The fight will not go the distance.

    I was catching up on the boxing scene when I saw where GGG split with his trainer Abel Sanchez. GGG thank Abel for all his hard work and helping become a champion. Abel returns the favor by calling GGG cheap by not giving him more money when GGG signed with Dazn. I don't any of the facts about the situation but it seems like a petty thing to say to a man that made you plenty of money and a Hall of Fame trainer.
