    Calling it now, Josh Kelly out of UK is a future Champ and Star. And surprise surprise, Eddie Hearn has him in his stable.
    Dude's only 3-0 right now (all 3 fights coming in a 3 month span), but god damn, dude is a pleasure to watch fight, even if he is only fighting bums so far. Lol


    His most recent one is just ridiculous:
    Josh Kelly. Flash fighter! Yeah. I like him. He's ready to move forward imo. Kelly's footwork, power, strong jabs and combination fluidity will be a nightmare for most opponents. But....

    I'm bit worried about his style change since the Olympics. He was sharp as fuck as amateur. Calm down kid.

    • CaneloGGG is sold out ($300-$5,000 tickets). MayMac wasn't even 75% sold out ($500-$10,000).

      Interesting. I hope Canelo and GGG can piggy back off of this fight and get a PPV draw as well. Doubt it though, which sucks.

      • I really hope people tune in to watch this fight. It's going to be a slobber knocker.



        My money is on Alvarez.

        • Alvarez?

          GGG is so underrated, and imo is the best p4p fighter on the planet. I think he'd knock Alvarez out in 3 rounds.

            He's the favourite to win and #2 p4p behind Andre Ward - not sure how you can say he's underrated. I'd say he's pretty fairly rated.

            That said, his last fight really showed his age. Took him 12 rounds and a decision to beat Daniel Jacobs. Alvarez is much younger than GGG, has reach advantage on GGG, has plenty of top-notch experience, a MUCH better fighter than Jacobs, and punches ALOT harder as well. I think it'll be a great fight ... but ya, Canelo takes it.

            • What I mean by underrated is when people talk about who the best p4p in the world is, people always say Ward, or Lomachenko, Crawford, Canelo. I rarely see the name GGG. I think he's the best p4p fighter in the world.

                And don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of GGG, but man .. Canelo is special.
                Still only 27, and fought Mayweather to a Majority decision as a 23 year old.

                • AJ is set to fight Pulev in October apparently. Should be a good fight, but AJ takes it.

                  • Pretty sure every single one of these shots lands ... every one ... it's a beautiful thing.

                    • Add some nice hype to the fight (with a pretty cheesy setting.. Lol)

                            • Watching some GGG/Canelo interviews. GGG cracks me up. The guy always starts with "this is boxing"

                              Blind date:

                              Woman: Tell me about yourself Gennady.
                              GGG: This is boxing.

                              LMAO

                                Roy Jones contributing on this interview was a neat touch. One of the baddest mf'ers ever lived.
