Tyson Fury: “Canelo Is An Excellent Fighter But He’s Not The Animal, Beast, Killer People Make Him Out To Be”

By: Hans Themistode Billy Joe Saunders knows good and well that the deck is stacked against him. The WBO super middleweight titlist is only a few days away from taking on unified champion Canelo Alvarez at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas this coming weekend. Currently, the betting odds have listed Saunders as a long shot to pull off the upset. To go even further, the boxing public believes his chances come Saturday night are virtually zero. Regardless of those sentiments, WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, is standing firmly behind his countrymen. “He’s going to rise up to the occasion,” said Fury during an interview with FightHype.com. “He’s going to give Canelo a boxing lesson. I’ve always said it, Billy Joe is the man to beat him. Billy Joe is undefeated in over a decade now. He’s unbeaten in 30 fights and no one has come close to beating him and I don’t think Canelo will.” In the mind of many, Alvarez tops the charts on virtually every pound-for-pound list. At the age of 30, the Mexican product has won world titles in four separate weight classes, defeated some of the biggest names the sport of boxing has ever seen in Miguel Cotto, Gennadiy Golovkin and several others. Alvarez is also highly motivated to become the first undisputed world champion in super middleweight history. But while Alvarez has run through the competition for years now, Fury doesn’t look at the pound-for-pound star as a supernatural force. In actuality, behind the world titles, flashy combination punches and endless accolades, lies a man who bleeds just like everyone else. “Canelo is an excellent fighter, great fighter but he’s not the animal, beast, killer people make him out to be. He’s just a man with a pair of boxing gloves like us all. He can be beaten, he has been beaten before. People are scared before they even go in there and they already lose. Billy Joe ain’t scared of a fight. Billy Joe came out of the womb fighting like myself. We’ve fought to survive, we fought to live. On the world’s biggest stage, he’s going to rise to the occasion and win.” If Fury is indeed correct, many believe Saunders best chance of pulling off the upset is to box Alvarez and avoid long, drawn-out exchanges. Although Fury wouldn’t exactly disagree with those sentiments, he’s also fully aware that at some point, boxing and moving won’t work. If Saunders truly wants to walk away with the biggest win of his career, Fury believes he'll have to draw a line in the sand, bite down on his mouthpiece and let his hands fly in the center of the ring. “This is a fight. I always say you can’t go swimming and not get wet. You’re going to have to fight sooner or later.” The post Tyson Fury: “Canelo Is An Excellent Fighter But He’s Not The Animal, Beast, Killer People Make Him Out To Be” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Jermell Charlo: “Canelo By Far The Best Fighter In The World Right Now”

By: Hans Themistode Jermell Charlo has always thought extremely highly of himself. The Houston native presently holds three of the four major world titles at 154 pounds and is currently on the verge of becoming the first undisputed champion the division has seen since Winky Wright in 2004. With everything that he has accomplished, Charlo believes he should be on everyone’s pound-for-pound list. However, if given the number one spot on said list, he wouldn’t accept it. Simply put, only one name should be universally mentioned as the best fighter in the world. “Canelo by far the best fighter in the world right now,” said Charlo during an Instagram live session. “Canelo is a f*cking stud. He work hard just like me.” At the moment, Alvarez is wrapping up his training camp while Charlo is just getting his started. The unified super welterweight champion is set to take on WBO titlist Brian Castano on July 17th. As for Alvarez, he’ll look to add the WBO super middleweight title of Billy Joe Saunders to his WBA, WBC and Ring magazine titles this Saturday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas. Well, at least Alvarez assumes he’ll be fighting Saunders. Over the past few days, both Alvarez and Saunders have gone back and forth over the size of the ring they’ll be fighting in this Saturday night. Team Saunders was under the belief that their contest would take place in a 24 ft ring. Yet, according to Tom Saunders, father of Billy Joe, once they arrived in Dallas, they noticed that the ring was actually 18 ft. They balked at the idea of their showdown taking place inside such a small ring. To acquiesce to their demands, team Alvarez offered to increase the ring size to 20 ft but nothing more. Saunders then threatened to walk away from their contest entirely. But, after negotiations took place behind the scenes, Saunders has revealed that the ring issues have been resolved to his liking. Throughout the entire dramatized ordeal, Charlo has watched closely from a distance and had some choice words for the British native. “Billy Joe you on some bull shit. P*ssy you scared of Canelo. The best should fight the best.” The post Jermell Charlo: “Canelo By Far The Best Fighter In The World Right Now” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
