This is BULLSHIT!!!!!!!! That is all...

 

 

Maybe not all, but this is what we get. Andrade has been screaming for the fight. Easily hes a more credible opponent than Vanes. In fact he beat Vanes. GGG is already kind of polarizing to a lot of fans because they say his resume is weak. I believe he's a great fighter, but this shit is not going to register with those people on the fence.

 

He stops Martirosyan in 4 rounds or less. Martirosyan hasnt fought in 2 years. WTF!!! No tuneup, and he gets to move up in weight against the top guy at 160. His timing will be off and he wont have a full camp. Expect a highlight reel KO.

This makes other HBO mismatches look good.  Fuck!  But what can you do?  HBO reportedly doesn't have the money needed for the IBF mandatory.  They have really tanked with boxing since the AT&T merger.  Canelo needs a "stay busy" opponent..  Will will still pan to do a round-by-round for the fight May 5th.  But the big question is "Who cares about this fight?"  There is no reason to care.

 

Jacobs is fighting another bum next week.  Logically, we should have had Golovkin-Jacobs II.  Problem is that this makes too much sense, and it puts the Canelo rematch in jeopardy.  Many felt Jacobs pulled out that first fight, or at least could have gotten a draw.

Get used to it, because GGG is now a sympathetic figure to many since Canelo got busted. So unless he's fighting Canelo again, he'll get away with fighting bums for AT LEAST a year. Vanes isn't a bum per se, but he also isn't a true middleweight, he's had a long layoff and he's fighting on super short notice. Truthfully, if we're being honest and fair, the moment the Canelo fight was confirmed to be off, Jacobs opponent should have been getting step aside money. Honestly, I don't think GGG wants that rematch. It's just as tough a fight as the Canelo fight with half the fanfare. I don't expect him to jump in the ring with Charlo any time soon either. This is one of the negative consequences of Canelo's test that people haven't mentioned.

Andrade, Ramirez and insert which ever other fighter that Said they would also.

I didn't say hey ______ got fight ggg on 3 weeks notice!

They spoke up themselves and said hey I'm in shape right now I'm ready.

Wasn't Pacquiaos break out fight on 1 or two weeks notice?

Sorry I should of made myself more clear, no one with 3 weeks notice at the top of the sport is going to risk it vs a legit contender. Obviously if your on the other end your going to jump at the chance, but the "A" side never will.

Could they at least have dressed these guys up and rented a hotel ballroom to have a short presser? Help me out here, did I miss it? These guys faced off in the gym, like they were getting ready to spar. Lol
