From Champion To Meal Ticket
 
By William Trillo

Less than two weeks ago WBC Middleweight Champ Saul “Canelo” Alvarez stood in the ring after knocking out Amir Khan with one punch. With a giddy Oscar De La Hoya standing behind him “Canelo” began to taunt multiple 160 pound belt holder Gennady “GGG” Golovkin who was standing on the ring apron. Through an interpreter when asked about fighting “GGG” Alvarez said, “Like we say in Mexico, We don’t F..k around! We don’t come to play in this sport, I don’t fear anyone! Like I said in the last fight, RIGHT NOW!! I will put on the gloves again.”

Povetkin’s Epic Fail
 
By William Trillo

As some of you may know as soon as the fight between WBC Heavyweight Champ Deontay Wilder vs. Alexander Povetkin became official I went on record saying I will not believe this bout will take place until I see them both standing in the ring answering the opening bell in Russia. My contention at the time was that Wilder would at some point find a way to back out of the fight, either choosing to vacate the title or pulling up lame at the post. Not in my wildest dreams did I think Povetkin would be the cause of this fight getting postponed and/or cancelled.
