  • most likely Canelo team wanted to pay peanuts to the other boxer, they will find an “illegal” loop to do it.

  • Derevyankchencko?

    WHERE the hell does De la Hoya find these guys, he digs deep to find the rotten “apple” instead of picking the “apples” on top of the barrel.

    Better question, where does DLH find the suckers willing to pay to see Canelo fight nobody’s and why do his fans fall for the same trick over and over again!

    • Derevyankchenko is a solid opponent with stellar amateur pedigree. His only loss was against Daniel Jacobs (close decision) in a world title bid. He is a pressure fighter with granite chin and if he is the mandatory is thanks to his achievements not to DLH.I don’t mind him against Canelo, I believe could be a good scrap.

  • FABULOUS what the entire boxing world is waiting for. Is this for just the IBF title or is it for the FRANCHISE WBC title as well? How about the WBA title regular? Super.Uber,Marshmellow? or WBAWWE UBER DUBER title?
