The pay-per-view numbers, Atlas said, “will go through the roof”.
That appears to be in the past, as the fight the boxing world has clamored for is just over the horizon.
“Boxing was on a hiatus”, said Oscar De La Hoya, president of Golden Boy Promotions, which promotes Alvarez.
“I think Canelo displayed today his great boxing skills, great combinations”, Sanchez said during a press conference at T-Mobile Arena. It was later revealed that Pacquiao, who struggled to land punches, was fighting with an undisclosed shoulder injury.
“And that’s what you see, the build-up from that fight to now, he’s gotten better and better and you can’t see that with all generations of fighters”.
It may seem like Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder would be the biggest fight in boxing, considering he sold out Wembley Stadium.
When it was over, mercifully for Chavez, it was as one-sided as a big, highly anticipated fight ever gets. I fought at light heavyweight.
And undefeated Golovkin has admitted it will be the biggest test of his career. Those four inches of height and 10 or 20 pounds for Chavez meant nothing.
“I feel very excited, right now is a different story”, Golovkin said.
That’s why as soon as Alvarez’s runaway unanimous decision was announced, they quickly transitioned into a pre-planned fight announcement that fans have waited years to hear. He’s guaranteed $5 million. “Why is this not going to happen?’ I told everybody it’s going to happen in September, and we’re extremely proud and happy that this fight is going to take place”. I wanted to box but he went to the ropes and I just needed to throw more punches. He put it down to being out of action for so long before the fight, only boxing once past year. He didn’t show much over 12 rounds to put him in the same class as a boxer like Alvarez, who continued to prove he’s one of the world’s best boxers.
