No weight issue
If Canelo is to face Golovkin, it should be at the full middleweight limit of 160 lbs. With Canelo looking like a 175 pounder in the ring last Saturday, weight shouldn’t be an issue. The demand of a catch weight under the middleweight limit is absurd. Either Canelo makes the full jump to 160 or vacates his title and keeps on fighting as Jr. Middleweight (154 lbs.) Canelo and his promoter have called out Golovkin on the level of opposition but reality is Golovkin has been beating up real middleweights while Canelo has been beating up blown up welterweights at a fake weight of 155 lbs. for the 160 lbs. title. What has Canelo really proven as a middleweight?
Boxing is a Business
Again, Canelo and his team are riding high, claiming they call the shots on whether they face Golovkin or not. Well if boxing is a business, passing on a Golovkin match is the most foolish business move possible. Canelo-Golovkin is the hottest commodity in the sport right now; it is the Mayweather-Pacquiao of today. Fight crazed Mexican, casual fans, and boxing fans alike are aching to see both fighters step into the ring.
Canelo is the superstar breaking PPV records and selling out stadiums. Golovkin is a star in his own rights on the west coast, selling out The Forum in Los Angeles and attracting strong viewership with each HBO appearance, and even winning over hardcore Mexican boxing fans. #CaneloGolovkin in Las Vegas during Mexican independence weekend is a guaranteed hit, a sure sellout, and fight that can sell over 1M buys in PPV.
Canelo said it himself after the Khan fight: ‘’Dejemonos de mamadas!’’ translating to "Lets' cut the crap" Time for him to step up and fight GGG.
