Who’s Shortsighted?
By William Trillo
Photos by Al Applerose

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.

  Diazzz Defeats Rivera

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.

  De La Hoya Glazes Caballero

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.

Featherweight Claudio Marrero (22-2, 16 KO’s) got caught up in a street fight with Jesus M Rojas (26-1-2, 19 KO’s) and it bit him right on his hind end. As per usual Rojas was using less than The Marques of Queenbury rules. With low blows, elbows and rabbit punches he was getting under the skin of Marrero.

Fortune Telling Elvis Says...
Age Before Beauty!
By William Trillo
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?
