Dana White Says Targeted McGregor Vs Mayweather Fight Date Has Been Nixed

The event also aired live on HBO Pay-Per-View and was labelled as the battle for Mexico's true boxing champion. "I'll be at that one, too", revealed Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White to the media backstage at The T-Mobile Arena via Fight Hub (courtesy of Fox Sports). His left eye swelled in the sixth and started to close a round later.

The idea of MMA fighters competing in boxing matches against high-level opponents and vice versa has been a topic of discussion for several years. He had a 228-71 edge in punches landed and an 83-15 advantage in jabs landed.

"I've always stated that Triple G will happen in 2017", said Oscar De La Hoya, Alvarez's promoter. Alvarez is going to need to shine against Golovkin to remove the bad taste his last few fights have left in everyone's mouth. Talk about a one-sided deal when it comes to these clauses. Both brothers are even money to beat Canelo and it wouldn't be for almost the money he would pocket fighting Golovkin.

The bout was contested at a catch-weight of 164 1/2 pounds.

The 26-year-old Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) has boxed above 155 pounds just once in his 11½-year pro career.

Alvarez celebrates his victory over Chavez. "It wasn't easy making the fight, but it was even harder not announcing the fight". The A-side fighter, of course, is the presumed bigger attraction and ticket seller. One lighting right-hand counter in the fifth round was the punch of the year so far. "It is not possible to cover the sun with a finger, Canelo Alvarez is simply better technically speaking", Nacho told ESPN Deportes as quoted by Boxing Scene. "I think Canelo displayed great boxing skills, great combinations". "My father kept telling me to throw more punches from the ringside". "Mayweather's better than that.if you want to fight and have a rematch against Canelo or a fight against Golovkin - go after them, after Canelo and Golovkin fight, go after the victor". There couldn't be a bigger announcement in the sport of boxing. Only this time there was a distinct Latino flavor. The fans win that fight.

Chavez, 31, gave all the glory to Alvarez. Then the fight was a dud.
