Lol...I am chilled. I just don't understand how you come to a conclusion where they are 'equally' to blame given the circumstances. Both held titles in the Middleweight division, Alvarez talked tough saying 'we don't f*ck about' and then promptly gave his WBC strap up rather than actually face Golovkin in the weight class where BOTH are at their best and where Alvarez was the linear champ.....Its laughable really, but its sadly true.

Blame Golovkin if you must for not fighting at 54 and 68 despite comments made by Abel Sanchez several years ago prior to Golovkin winning a title.... But don't say he's as culpable as Alvarez when it comes down to why a fight between them hasn't happened, when clearly he's not.

We all know that an Golovkin/Alvarez fight should take place in the Middleweight division for the Middleweight championship...end of. One fighter is willing, the other is not.

Now one day the red diva might come out from hiding up Oscars skirt.....maybe.....perhaps.....but certainly nobody would be advised to hold their breath waiting for it!

Golovkin made said comments himself. Abel more often but don't pretend GGG has never stated any of that...not to mention the clip of him saying Brook is too small for him to fight  Grin

The guys full of contradictions.

Might aswell stick a pin in it for now and I'll be back once Golovkins cleared up the division and comes up with new excuses to remain fighting poor opposition.

Margarito's eye blew up every time he got hit in it after Pac broke it. It would have been wise for Brook to battle-test it first before taking a big fight like this and also practice 147 again - but I guess they just want to get on with it.

Don't think that was an option. They had already got an exemption to fight GGG so mandatory was next and the only thing that would have stopped that would have been the Khan fight so one way or another he wasn't getting a 'tune-up' back down at 147.

I do like his attitude in taking the fight rather than giving up the belt. If you're gonna lose it, do it in the ring going out on your shield.

I'm sure Brook has been working a lot with Sheffield University sports science staff in recent fights so I'm guessing if anybody has a chance of getting back down to the weight correctly then it's him.

Chill Bro. ...just a forum. He wouldn't fight GGG at 160lb...I've never stated any different. But again Golovkin was the one claiming he'd fight at 154lb to 168lb if it were a big fight yet refused to do so when it came along.  As bad as each other.

Canelo's CV isn't really all that bar Mayweather who was never going to do any damage to him.  A couple of wins over the shells of Mosley and Cotto aside, his best wins are Lara and Trout - hardly HoF worthy.  It's the defining fight for both of them at present and frustrating to see it turn into another Mayweather v Pacquiao soap opera.

I know it's largely pointless looking back to past era's for comparison, but Leonard came back from three years out to effectively move up from Welter and fight one of the best middleweights ever in Hagler.  By then he'd already racked up wins over prime Benitez, Duran and Hearns as well.  Nowadays it seems an easier prospect to negotiate peace in the Middle East than get two guys in the same weight class to fight sometimes.

Agree Canelos cv ain't all that but it still pisses on Golovkins.

This is the point....they aren't as bad as each other. Alvarez is quite clearly the one to blame and yet you're trying to lump them in together. Both held titles as middleweight. Golovkin then put himself into a position where Alvarez would have to face him or vacate the WBC title. And so Alvarez chose to vacate(a Mexican organisations title no less)rather than fight Golovkin.

That is a straight up f*cking duck whichever way its, sliced, diced, boiled, baked or fried!

He has been used to smashing people and he's still quite green. This is a big test for him. Its a massive show, he may not be prepared to get into the big fight bubble Hearn likes to create. He's only had 21 pro fights, that could play in in Brooks favour. Maybe i'm clutching at straws.

I don't like this fight for Brook, not coming off a loss, it's a dangerous fight for him. Spence is the worst kind of opponant to face after your first loss. Credit to Brook for taking it, but Brook will be fighting two times over. 1. the weight cut 2. Spence. Thats a tough ask.

On a side note, I know Hearn gets alot of hate on here but he's rejuvinated British boxing of late imo. He's delivering some quality fights and create a buzz. He's cetainly rejuvinated my interest in Boxing anyway. I think i'm in the minority when I say.... I actually like the guy. *runs and hides*

No I agree......Hearn has been fantastic for British boxing so far. It was in a bad way when he came onto the scene. Now we are the world leaders. The likes of W***** have been forced to really up their game to compete with Matchroom, and in fairness to Frank he has risen to the challenge.  Others too. Competition is healthy and the sport is thriving in the UK. People might hate on Hearn, but the current state of British boxing is mainly down to him and the environment he's created. Now he might start taking the p*ss at this point and this is the worry. But upto yet he's done far more good than harm to the sport.

I agree this is a scary fight....especially coming off a loss and weight drain. But I see lots of reasons to feel confident. Namely that Spence has fought nobody of any real threat up to yet. He's fast, strong and powerful but I see some big fundamental flaws that a quality operator like Brook can cruelly exploit. Spence's confidence I also don't mind....cus he has the confidence of ignorance. Not sure confidence is the right word, more like an arrogance. Its the arrogance of a fella whose been used to rolling over people. But lets see how he feels when someone is giving him a taste of his own medicine. We know that Brook can and will fire back if he gets hurt and is under pressure. We've yet to see how Spence deals with adversity. Its not a given his fighting spirit and heart matches that confidence/arrogance.

Brook's weight loss for the fight is my biggest concern. I just hope he's not too compromised by boiling down. If he's firing on all cylinders I really think he'll do a number on Spence and force feed the arrogant f*cker chocolate brownies till he's pig sick of them.

It's not easier, it's "better business" they say. I've not seen Canelo vs Lara but the opinions I see on it are that Lara won.

Let's be fair Canelos cv is pretty solid and if I had to accuse one of them of hiding based on who they have actually thought it would be Golovkin. As I've said before they are as bad as each other....both have made claims they have failed to back up and both are in limbo waiting for a worth while fight. Just out of interest I've seen a lot of people complaint about Jacobs weight v GGG....what's stopping Alvarez from playing the same game?

This is the point....they aren't as bad as each other. Alvarez is quite clearly the one to blame and yet you're trying to lump them in together. Both held titles as middleweight. Golovkin then put himself into a position where Alvarez would have to face him or vacate the WBC title.
