    Default Spence wants Canelo

    https://www.boxingscene.com/errol-sp...tadium--152622

    "Errol Spence Wants Canelo Alvarez At 160 In Cowboys’ Stadium"


    Of course. Who doesn't want a piece of the cash cow... even if it means career suicide? Hell.. he'll even skip 154 to do it.

    "Spence Jr. has previously expressed that he’s not long for the welterweight division, but skipping super welterweight altogether for a shot at Alvarez at 160 is a fresh sentiment shared by the Texan."

    I call it... the Amir Khan Plunge.


    The reaction from Canelo's camp?

    https://www.boxingscene.com/canelo-c...o-2021--152729

    “With what Spence says [about facing Canelo at middleweight], it would be a good fight, it's difficult [to make] because of the weight [difference]. To begin with we have to see how [Spence] returns [after the accident].. I don't think we can make 160-pounds right now after a year without fighting... these are factors that can be complicated," Reynoso said.


    Oh c'mon Reynoso... really?

    I bet that tune changes soon enough. Maybe what he means is... "Let's let Spence get back into the limelight to make it worth our while... and pssst... of course Canelo can make it to 160 (wink, wink). He'll just blow back up to 175 on fight night, and it'll be another high-profile mosquito to swat."

    If Spence dispatches Danny Garcia in impressive fashion, start booking Texas Stadium for another mismatch circus.

    Never thought about this match up but it seems good enough for PPV if you ask me. Probably may end up the biggest fight next year if nothing else pops up.

    That is exactly what Canelo and Team are banking on.

    More chance Spence survives another thrown from window 100mph car crash than Canelo killing himself to make 160 again.

    C'mon... seriously? Boxing history is littered with fighters that have gone down to a previous weight. Why is Canelo any different?
    Three reasons why Canelo would most definitely "kill himself" to make 160 again:

    1. Money
    2. Fame
    3. Because he can.



    Ok so maybe he doesn't need the money. But he won't turn it down. Fame? He already considers himself The Face of Boxing. But a beatdown of a comparative gnat with a huge name wouldn't hurt.

    Finally... Canelo's weight games are well known to all boxing fans.

    Four years ago he couldn't be bothered with GGG until the fight was "marinated", and because he couldn't persuade Golovkin to come down to 154.

    My, how times have changed... and all of a sudden Canelo "can't make it down to 160."

    I don't bet... but that's one bet I'm sure I'd win. That somewhere in Canelo's future there will be a sacrificia... er... showdown against Spence. The only thing that could derail that is if Spence loses to Garcia.

    I’m not a huge fan of these types of fights because boxers don’t fight enough to warrant it. If fighters fought 4-5 times a year, I have no problem with these types of fights thrown in there. Spence has multiple good fights to be made at welterweight. If he can’t make the weight anymore, he can fight at 154 and there are some good fights for him there.

    I get that it’s all about money so I can’t fault him for that, but it’s just unfortunate. If they were the same size, I would favor Spence, but Canelo is so much bigger and Spence’s style wouldn’t do well against a big fighter like Canelo.

    This is silly stuff. One of those in name only glory match makings that give promoters half chubs in the night. If there was one top middle Canelo should melt down for, and he won’t, it’s Charlo. Spence should want Crawford full stop. Spence ain’t even proven he’s back and whole ffs.

    Rather than face the biggest threat in their division, fighters cash out and would prefer loosing to a PPV star.

    Thurman did the same.

    I would certainly expect as much. After all, he did destroy that other welterweight gnat... Amir Khan.
