WBC President – Jose Sulaiman's son

It would be impossible not to dedicate this week's column to Gennady "GGG" Golovkin. Saturday night in Las Vegas at the T Mobile Arena, Golovkin finally received the world recognition as the best fighter in the middleweight division and one of the best in the world.

Golden Boy brass admonished the media in attendance at the GGG vs Canelo post fight press telling them that if they didn’t write about the excellent performances of both fighters but instead only focused on the abysmal score rendered, it would be very shortsighted.

Unfortunately for the promoter by the time he uttered those words the internet was ablaze with negative reaction to not only that horrific score but social media was inundated with boxing fan commentary that made it clear they thought Gennady Golovkin was the victim of Las Vegas robbery at its best. In the eyes of the majority of the fans Golovkin won that battle hands down.

  Tainted Draw For GGG vs. Canelo  
By William Trillo
Photos: Tom Hogan - Hoganphotos/Golden Boy

Saul Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KO’s) came into the ring to deafening cheers that showed he was the favorite of the fans in attendance. The same man left the ring to boo’s that darn near knocked the house down. Meanwhile his foe Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KO’s) entered the ring the villain, and when it was over it was clear the fans applauded him for his gutty performance. They saw what you and I saw. Another in the long line of some pretty inept judging. Ya'll just might as well write your scorecards before the fight...or did you?

118-110 for Canelo?

The fight was damn close so when you see scores like this rendered it just gives you no other choice than to assume there is some real stinky business afoot.

There’s just something about the semi-main event of a big PPV card in Las Vegas that seems to always have snoozer written all over it. Such was the case for Featherweight Joseph Diaz (25-0, 13 KO’s) who took on last minute substitute Rafael Rivera (25-1-2, 16 KO’s) in a battle almost no one in the house paid attention to.

Super bantamweight Randy Caballero (24-1, 14 KO’s) talked a big game before his battle with Diego De La Hoya (20-0, 9 KO’s) but he didn’t perform as well as his mouth and was unceremoniously beaten by a wide unanimous decision.

De La Hoya took control from the start using his size advantage to keep Caballero off rhythm for almost the entire 10 rounds. By round three Caballero had developed a mouse under his left eye and DLH was quick to target it for the rest of the night.

  Canelo vs. Golovkin Off-TV Results
From T-Mobile Las Vegas
 
By William Trillo
Super lightweight Vergil Ortiz (7-0, 7 KO’s) didn’t buy into the serious amount of smack that Cesar Valenzuela (7-2, 2 KO’s) was running at the weigh-in. Keeping his undefeated record intact Ortiz not only remains undefeated but keeps his KO ratio at a stellar 100%. Two vicious body shots put Valenzuela down in round two with the ref waving it off at 1:22 of round 2.

“I just do what my coaches tell me to do,” said Ortiz. “They knew how this fight was going to end, and kept reminding me to go towards the body. I’m super happy to get the win, and this is just another fight on the way.”

Supremacy Thoughts
For What It’s Worth
 
By William Trillo
Photos: Marlene Marquez

The time is finally here. It’s the biggest fight to come around the bend in many moons. No doubt it’s going to live up to the hype. With fighters the likes of GGG and Canelo it’s a given, this one will be spectacular. You can take that to the bank.

From arm chair boxing fan to seasoned journalists the common theme all along seems to center on GGG’s last two fights and the fact that maybe Golovkin has peaked and is now on the downside of his illustrious career. The speculation on that topic has gone so far as to suggest that this so called erosion is the only reason Canelo finally took the fight. Of course that would suggest that his promoter Golden Boy has bought into the Golovkin demise themselves.

With the biggest fight weekend of 2017 upon us I felt it was my duty to get to the boxing Capital of the world, Las Vegas, as early in the week as possible.

OK.......truth be told I just wanted to get the heck out of dodge, and the sooner the better. So with a hearty Hi Ho I jumped in my ride and hit Interstate 15 and set the GPS for Sin City.

As per usual I made my usual midpoint stop at Peggy Sue's Diner in Yermo and along with a fountain shop made Cherry Coke there was the obligatory check in with Elvis The Soothsayer. Could the King have some insight on this weekends huge 160 pound Championship battle?

Perceived Decline May Lead to Fall of Golden Empire
 
By William Trillo
Let’s make no mistake about it. The reason that it took over two years to make the GGG vs. Canelo fight a reality is the fact that “someone” at Golden Boy was not going to put his Meal Ticket on the line until he believed that Gennady Golovkin has peaked and is now on the downside of his career. After performances against Kell Brook and Danny Jacobs that had many so called experts speculating that GGG is not the same fighter anymore…well…the fight coincidentally got made.

  Rungvisai Is Super Fly  
By William Trillo

Super flyweight Srisaket Rungvisai (44-4-1, 40 KO’s) left no room for controversy in his second fight with Roman Gonzalez (46-2, 38 KO’s). In the first fight Rungvisai took a questionable victory.

  Inoue Takes Out Nieves  
By William Trillo

Super flyweight Naoya Inoue (14-0-12 KO’s) made the most of his American debut when he stopped challenger Antonio Nieves (17-2-2, 9 KO’s). Officially the fight was over after the sixth round as Nieves could not or would not answer the bell for round seven. Inoue hurt Nieves very early in round one and from that point on it was clear Nieves did not want any more of the knuckle sandwiches that Inoue was serving up. The bout may have ended earlier but with his one punch at a time style Inoue could not drop his foe. As he goes back to the drawing board it might not be a bad idea to add combination punches into his heavy handed arsenal. That being said Inoue is impressive for a fighter with only 14 pro fights on his ledger. With the victory the fighter from Japan holds onto his WBO World Super Flyweight Title.


  Estrada Drops & Defeats Cuadras in Close Battle  
By William Trillo

Super flyweight Juan Francisco Estrada (36-2, 25 KO’s) dropped Carlos Cuadras (36-2-1, 27 KO’s) late in the fight and in the close battle of two Mexican warriors it seemed that was enough to get him over the top to victory. But when scorecards were read at 114-113 it was declared Cuadras squeaked out a close unanimous nod. The packed house in California booed vehemently as everyone saw Estrada as the victor. In Fact, the crowd was jeering so loudly you could barely here Michael Buffer announce the cards were misread and it was Estrada who won the fight. Once the crowd figured out what was happening they cheered the obviously correct decision. That misfire on the scorecards took away from a pretty intriguing battle and whatever the case may be the 114-113 scores were indicative of a very close and entertaining battle in the HBO TV opener.

  Golovkin: "I Am Not Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
And Canelo Is No Danny Jacobs"
 
Boxing’s No. 1 superhero and undefeated WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight World Champion, GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN and lineal and Ring magazine Middleweight World Champion and Mexican icon Canelo Alvarez are entering their epic showdown with each coming off very different performances. On March 18, in front of a packed Madison Square Garden, Golovkin beat fellow world champion Daniel Jacobs by unanimous decision in a hard-fought battle. It was Golovkin's 18th consecutive title defense -- two short of the record -- since becoming world champion in 2010 and the first to go the distance. That had media speculating that age was starting to become a factor for Golovkin, currently boxing's longest-reigning world champion. Two months later, on May 6 -- at a catchweight of 164.5 pounds (the less-than-super super middleweight division?) -- Alvarez won a lopsided unanimous decision over former middleweight champion Julio César Chȧvez, Jr., who barely threw a punch and did everything he could do to survive. Not win.

  Margarito Wins Controversial Technical Decision Over Jones In Mexico Despite Being Nearly Stopped  
Photo: German Villasenor

Antonio Margarito (41-8, 27 KO's) won a highly controversial 7th-Round Technical Decision over Carson Jones (40-12-3, 30 KOs) at the Gimnasio "Manuel Bernardo Aguirre" in Chihuahua, Mexico. Margarito failed to come out for round 8, which they say was "[due to a cut over the right eye caused by an accidental headbutt that occurred in round two]", but managed to win on scores even though he appeared to be on the losing end.

The fight was controlled by Jones as he pounded away at the right eye and face of Margarito from start to finish. Jones was deducted a point for an accidental headbutt in round 5, a round Jones was clearly in control of, but it didn't appear to matter with the amount of damage he was giving. Margarito looked ready to go in the 7th as Jones pounded away at Margarito against the ropes, which leads to the controversy of the stoppage. Also, Margarito appeared to have only won a round or 2, yet official scores managed to find many more ways to score rounds for Margarito despite his head being used as a punching bag. Final scores were 68-64 and 67-65 twice.

And Now For Something Completely Different
 

By William Trillo
Like Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey, the circus that passed through “Sin City” this weekend has folded up its tent and life under the Big Top is over. No more Carnival Barkers, no more Clowns, no more Bearded Lady. The boxing paparazzi that chose to forgoe a great night of televised HBO boxing from Carson, California in order to be a part of “The Greatest Show On Earth” will forever carry the taint of being just another shill who bought into the hype and sold themselves out to be a part of that charade. If the hair on the back of your neck is standing on end right now go ahead and assume I am directing that venom at you.
