  GGG Blog Part 1: "I Had A Deal In Place To
Fight WBO Champion Billy Joe Saunders"
 
Did you ever worry that this rematch might not happen? How close were you to moving on to another opponent?

“Of course I wanted the rematch to happen but it was never a worry for me if it did or did not happen. That is because after Canelo failed two random drug tests in February everything changed. After I beat Vanes Martirosyan on May 5, I authorized my promoter Tom Loeffler to begin a new negotiation for the rematch with Canelo. Canelo and Golden Boy Promotions assumed I would fight under the terms of the May 5 rematch and they were unhappy when I gave them my terms. What they refused to admit was that it was their side that changed everything once Canelo failed his drug tests. That was their fault not mine.

A Little Mistake?
“Weight” A Minute!
 
By William Trillo
After JoJo Diaz defeated Jesus Rojas in a fight that had literally not one ounce of significance whatsoever Diaz let this little pearl of wisdom fly out of his pie hole, “It was just one little mistake that we didn’t make the weight, it was just one little crucial mistake.”

Where do I begin?

JoJo, a little mistake would be that you forgot to pack your mouthpiece in your bag on fight night.

  Crawley & Garcia Battle To
Majority Draw In Philadelphia
 
This past Friday night, Tyrone Crawley, Jr. and Ricardo Garcia fought to an eight-round majority draw before a capacity crowd at SugarHouse Casino in a junior welterweight bout.

The fantastic nine-bout show was promoted by King's Promotions.

It seemed that Garcia was leading the action by landing combinations on the ropes. Crawley tried to keep the fight at the center of the ring by trying to lead with his left and flicking out the jab. Garcia dictated the action, but the judges did not see it that way as two of the voters saw the fight even at 76-76 and a 3rd judge had it 79-73 for Garcia.

Featherweight Jesus M Rojas (26-2-2, 19 KO’s) lost a dull one-sided bout to Joseph Diaz (27-1, 14 KO’s). Since Diaz decided not to make weight for this World Boxing Association World Featherweight Title fight he effectively rendered this fight as meaningless as shredded hay. I am going to put as much effort in the fight recap as Diaz put in to make weight. Final scores read 116-112, 117-111 and 115-113.

Trainer Marc Ramsay Talks About His New Champion Alvarez: "Game Plan Worked To Perfection"
 
By William Trillo
Don’t look now but Montreal, Canada has become the hotbed for Light Heavyweight World Champions. Three of the four major 175 pound titles in boxing reside in Quebec’s Metropolis. Even more remarkable is the fact that one trainer has tutored two of those champs to the very top. That trainer would be Marc Ramsay. That’s quite an accomplishment for Ramsay who has been working with fighters since 1995.

Krushed By Storm In Atlantic City

Not since Hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey shores has such a devastating Storm hit the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk. With one Krushing right hand in round seven Eleider Alvarez took Kovalev out into the deep water and left him there to try to swim out of danger. With no life preserver in sight Kovalev struggled to stay afloat but he was no match for the weight of Alvarez’s barrage of punches. Less than a minute later Kovalev sank to the canvas as a jubilant Alvarez celebrated his championship winning performance.

  Alvarez Shocks Kovalev With 7th Round Knockout  
Eleider Alvarez (24-0, 12 KO's) won the WBO & IBA Light Heavyweight Titles with a 7th round knockout over Sergey Kovalev (32-3-1, 28 KO's) following 3 knockdowns. Alvarez started early, peppering jabs and right hands within the first 3 rounds. In round 4, Kovalev came back and stunned Alvarez with his power, staggering him more than once with big left hooks and rights, upstairs and to the body. Kovalev began to take control and hurt Alvarez again in the 6th. In round 7, the tide completely shifted when a perfect right hand from Alvarez landed on the side of Kovalev's head that sent him reeling backwards and to the canvas. Kovalev would rise on shaky legs, but it was clear that the damage had been done with that single shot. Alvarez would drop Kovalev again with a jab, right combo, and again Kovalev would rise on uneasy legs, only to fall a 3rd and final time to the same combination. The fight was waived off at 2:45.

On the undercard, Dmitry Bivol (14-0, 11 KO's) won a 12-round Unanimous Decision over Isaac Chilemba (25-6-2, 10 KO's). The fight started at a decent pace, but turned into a bit of a lackluster affair by both men. Bivol did not appear to throw many, if any, body shots the entire fight, while Chilemba is notoriously known for making awkward and drawn-out fights. Final scores were 120-108 twice and a 116-112.
