  • – Looks like a good card.
    – Thank you, again, Amazon Fire Stick…….

      • Yeah not as good as what they originally were working on Russell vs Edwin De Los Santos.

    • Love the Amazon Fire Stick comment! Gets me everytime….. You never disappoint. LOL

  • I know Canelo is crossing his fingers so that Benavidez gets KO’d so he won’t have to deal with that.

    • Although it’s Benavides’ first time at 175 and he’s going for an interim title against Gvozdyk, who retired Stevenson, I don’t think he will cause too much trouble for David. Yes, Canelo is crossing his fingers, but Benavides wins. Gvozdyk is a safe fight. He has not been fighting strong opposition, he has had very long breaks and Teddy Atlas is no longer in his corner. Canelo can’t do anything about the public’s perception of him. We know he deliberately avoided the Benavides fight. Some are confident now(Pan) in saying that no one beats canelo at 168, but we didn’t hear that noise just a few months ago.

      • Absolutely not. It was a close, awkward fight. Fine, if you think he won, but “robbed”? No way. Fight could have gone either way or been a draw.

          • What Burucho said: Had three guys win titles in a week’s time, one of those went undisputed and Bohachuk before those.

          • Lucie and burucho, you have to forgive bread boy, he only has canelo on his “mind.” I actually think the nail doesn’t get by benavidez, but it should be interesting. Russell and Pueblo very good. Gausha is always a formidable opponent. Who knows maybe the main event brings some surprises. We have had a half a year of several upsets already happen. I love it!

  • Very good card; no female fights, minimum weight fights, and celebrity/YouTube/mma/retired nba/60 year old former champion fights.

  • Naw, benavidez is wayyyyy to big for canelo. He’ll have the youth, size, weight, and reach advantage in that fight if it ever happens! I don’t blame canelo for asking 150-200 million for a fight with lots of dissadvantages for him. Canelo is not ducking the super heavyweight, he’s just playing businessmen smart and wants to capitalize his earnings to the maximum cause he knows the saudi kings are big spenders and are the only ones who can make it happen if they want to. We are in a new era of boxing in which people pay big money to watch jake paul fight old washed up retired boxers like mike tyson and make huge profits from this insanity! Win or lose canelo’s legacy will be unblemished. If boxing fanitics have canelo as one of the greatest fighters then, it is what it is! Canelo is having it his way like frank sinatra onced said’ ain’t nothing wrong with that by the way its not my money his earning cause I watch boxing for free anyways!
