    Default What fight will you be watching?

    Assuming everything goes down as reported, Victor Ortiz will be fighting Canelo Alvarez on the same night and in the same city where Sergio Martinez will be defending against JCC Jr.
    Both match up's are fight of the year candidates, if both are held on PPV and you only were going to watch one, which one would you watch and why?
    The key is Self-discipline.

    I'm choosing Sergio Martinez vs Julio Chavez Jnr. I think that will be a great fight and Chavez will push Martinez HARD. If Barker laid punishment on Martinez for a few rounds I think Chavez does very well indeed. Turnin in to quite the beast IMO.

    In the other fight. Ortiz got BULLIED by Maidana and had his will broken. That alone is enough for me, regardless of when the fight took place, to believe Alvarez will break Ortiz too as he's a much bigger, more powerful, better boxer and quicker opponent than Maidana. Ortiz played at beingtyhe thug against Mayweather and soon got brought down to earth with that 'nasty' facade not lasting long. Simple one IMHO. Don't quite get why Ortiz would want to take this fight personally. Should stay at WW and Alvarez should fight a LM.

    Anyway, just my two pence worth.

    I agree with MacMagician about the main events. I will say, however, that GBP has put on *far* better undercards than Top Rank for the past 2-3 years and that could potentially sway things.

    Also, I know this is attacking the hypothetical, but Ithink there's only about a 5% chance of the two companies actually shooting themselves in the feet and going forward with conflicting PPVs and if they do go forward with it, what I'll actually do is just order both, DVR them, and watch them one after another.

    Martinez is just more entertaining than Alvarez or Ortiz and if that fight gets made I'll be looking forward to seeing him spark Chavez jnr

    Martinez v Chavez Junior is the fight we have all been waiting for so that is the fight I would want to watch. I hope Box nation get it because I would stay up to watch this fight. No way Ortiz v Saul should be PPV and on the same day, why could they not make it a week earlier or later? Makes no commercial sense to fight at the same time.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    I have to go with Martinez versus Junior, but that shouldn't come as much of a surprise from me.

    Who is in the right regarding September 15, 2012? Top Rank allegedly announced to the ppv industry that it was reserving 9/15 prior to Golden Boy announcing Alvarez/Ortiz on that date. However, Golden Boy formally reserved the date with the Nevada Commission before Top Rank.

    Either way, it would be a shame if Alvarez and Junior went head to head on Mexican Independence day. I doubt they'll let it get to that point.

    This is exactly what I would do. Martinez V Chavez seems like the bigger event but the undercard issue is something that would sway me towards the GBP event if I was only going to watch one.

    Well, if this were to come true, it would surely tip the scales in favor of the Martinez versus Junior clash: Marquez vs Viloria in Play For Chavez-Martinez Card? - Boxing News

    Let's just have a super card! Saul is the biggest draw. So should be the main event.

    where is there a Rican involved? lol

    it's two Mexicans (JCC Jr & Alvarez), and Argentinian (Martinez), and a Mexican-American (Ortiz), I'd only pray that Cortez isn't involved lol

    Martinez v Chavez

    I'm probably the only one but I'm very much against the Alvarez/Ortiz fight.

    I just spent 5 minutes admiring that JMM counter and combo.

    I also will be watching Martinez paints Jr.s face with stiff right handed jabs and softening him up for a late round bye bye.

    Looking at Ortiz, I'm wondering if GBP were actually wanting Saul to retire him. That was a mismatch from the second it was being mooted.

    It'd be nice if GBP now take a step backwards and drop their card and instead try to secure a May 5th date for next year as part of as "agreement" for not going head-to-head. Problem is I think Schaefer is too stubborn.
