Good read if you have some time to kill

There was another good read on Canelo on Deadspin yesterday....can't link it b/c it's blocked here at work.

As an EXTREMELY novice boxing fan, why is this the only sport where we have to use PPV to see top fights? What's the rationale behind it? Could you imagine if we had to do the same to watch the SB, NBA Finals, etc.?

When you are giving someone like Mayweather $40 off the top just to show, money has to come from somehwere, wont be from live gate and sponsor alone.

That's what I figured. Would boxing totally crumble if there was no PPV?

So I am thinking that Canelo doesn't make weight ....i feel like espn and showtime were over playing the "who wanted the catch weight" thing that maybe it will lead to more controversy. Canelo will weigh in at like 154 or something and they will have to renegotiate or delay or something. Then if Canelo doesn't make the weight it will be a non-title fight or get called off.

I could also be totally wrong, but ultimately it comes down to cash.

There are PPV's that probably operated at a loss but due to not having open dates they are forced to put them on PPV.

Its a dirty game, and I suppose I shouldnt pretend I know what I am talking about.

I read somewhere that the fine is 1 mill for each pound overweight. But it will still be for the title as long as its fought at 154.

A lot of rumors are swirling about his weight. I wonder what toll it will take on him if he gets down to 152 and the rehydrates up to 170. That is still crazy to me how people can do that. 18+ lbs in 24 hours....can't be healthy

Yeah last week I heard canelo was at 157..... Going to be a tough time making weight.. If he comes over, it's definitely going to take a bite out of that ~$5 MM guaranteed purse.....

There's no way Floyd calls off this fight no matter how many lbs over Canelo is.
post #3825 of 6617
Agreed, there's no way the fight gets called off. Canelo will just have to eat some hefty fines.

me and my boys have said this for weeks, if he hits the scale at 155 zero shot showtime or golden boy let this fight get called off. they would throw a extra 5-10 million at Floyd if he said no fight just to get it done

Million dollar charge per pound? Good lord that's a lot of money.
Canelo better take a laxative, drain his bladder, get a hair cut and trim his toenails.

Line for Garcia by 12 round decision is +390. That's too good of a value to pass up.

Think Garcia can hold on for 12 rounds?

If he employs the right strategy, yes. Little room for error.

It's usually 9pm on the west coast so I'd assume it's 11pm central

Alvarez is good don't get me wrong... But Floyd is not human
