Canelo Alvarez Responds To Fighters Who Say He Is Ducking Them And Expresses Interest In Facing Jermall Charlo: “A Fight Has To Happen”

By: Hans Themistode Forget about Canelo Alvarez winning world titles in four different weight classes. It also doesn't matter that he’s the consensus number one fighter in the world. According to a long list of fighters that include the likes of WBO middleweight titlist Demetrius Andrade and WBC belt holder Jermall Charlo, Alvarez is flat out avoiding them. Those sentiments do nothing but make the unified super middleweight champion laugh. To Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KOs), it doesn't matter how many fighters he's beaten and it also doesn't matter how great they were. Regardless of how many he knocks down, new faces continue to rise to the front of the line and claim that he is avoiding them. “All fighters always say the same thing,” said Alvarez during an interview with Fight Hub TV. “I beat one and another comes up. That's how it is, it's normal. It’s part of the game.” Alvarez, 30, is currently watching the clock tick down as his mandatory title defense against Avni Yildirim this Saturday night draws closer. The pair are slated to face off at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Florida. Despite being the overwhelming favorite, Alvarez says he’s giving Yildirim all of the respect in the world. If the super middleweight titlist does exactly what many are expecting, then his next contest is already locked in against WBO belt holder Billy Joe Saunders. Next up, provided he wins, would be a showdown against IBF champion Caleb Plant. Not mentioned in any of his immediate plans is Charlo. The Houstonian has continued to call out Alvarez at every turn, even offering to agree to whatever weight class Alvarez chooses. For the most part, the Mexican product has paid him no mind, but he knows good and well that at some point, both he and Charlo will have to meet up in the ring. Simply put, it's inevitable. “Hopefully yes,” said Alvarez when asked if he expects to face Charlo. “Why not? A fight has to happen.” The post Canelo Alvarez Responds To Fighters Who Say He Is Ducking Them And Expresses Interest In Facing Jermall Charlo: “A Fight Has To Happen” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

“All This Without a Blue Check.” Teofimo Lopez Cashes In On Purse Bid

By: Sean Crose "All this without a blue check from Twitter. Lol cool story bro! #The Takeover" So tweeted WBA, IBF and WBO lightweight titlist Teofimo Lopez after upstart Triller won a purse bid to broadcast his upcoming mandatory defense against contender George Kambosos. For those unfamiliar with the process, a purse bid occurs when the parties in a negotiation can't agree on a contract within a given amount of time. Top Rank, which promotes Lopez, has been at odds with the fighter as to how much he should be paid for the Kambosos fight. Still, the Bob Arum helmed company bid over two million for rights to the upcoming battle. Eddie Hearn's Matchroom boxing also bid on the bout, offering three and a half million dollars for the privilege. It was upstart Triller, however, that won the day - and shocked the boxing world- by putting up over seven figures for the fight - six million one hundred eighty thousand dollars, to be exact. It was, to say the least, a massive coup, one few, if any, in the fight business expected. "$6Million from Triller! Goodbye world #LopezKambosos" tweeted Lopez who also went on to tastelessly tweet that " This shit for everybody on my testicle, please make sure you put the rest in yo mouth, Ho! #TheTakeover". Niceties aside, this is enormous news. Kambosos wasn't seen as a marquee opponent for Lopez, who recently defeated Vasyl Lomachenko for his belts. What's more, it shows that Triller is now a force to be reckoned with in the fight game. The company made it's name late last year by having a huge success with the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones exhibition match. That event brought in over a hundred million buys on pay per view. Now journalists like Dan Rafael are indicating Lopez-Kambosos will appear alongside Jake Paul and Ben Askren on their April 17th card. Although Top Rank will receive a cut of Lopez' pay for the fight, Lopez has at least proved he's worth more in the ring that Arum and company believed he was. Or has he? Boxing has seen it's share of poor financial planning before. In a sense, Lopez' future largely depends on Lopez himself. If he makes himself a must-see attraction, the days ahead will look bright indeed. If he doesn't, however, he may see his star fall faster than a comet crashing to earth. No matter what happens, there's little doubt the twenty-three year old has let his self belief take him a long way.
