Canelo vs Kovalev Thoughts & Catchweight Rant! Welcome to Sports Talk With Troy where I may or may not be an expert, but I am a long-time fan with an informed and knowledgeable opinion! Please Subscribe to My YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1DnNvUpABr-ayiIMvwBJgg
Middleweight champion Saul Canelo Alvarez and light heavyweight champion Sergey Krusher Kovalev have been looking into facing each other. With November 2, 2019, being the planned date for the fight. The would be for Kovalev’s light heavyweight championship. Nothing is official, but it is seeming more and more likely that the fight will happen. Because Canelo is moving up from middleweight skipping super middleweight. There is speculation that the fight will be contested at a catchweight. I realize that I’m just one fan with an opinion, but I fell that if a championship is on the line in a boxing match. It should be contested at the proper weight.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR VASILIY LOMACHENKO AFTER BEATING LUKE CAMPBELL? Please help me grow Sports Talk With Troy by Subscribing https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1Dn… I think the long term plan is to fight the winner of Richard Commey and Teofimo Lopez who are supposed to fight late this year or early next year for Commey’s IBF lightweight championship. However, waiting for that fight would have Lomachenko out of the ring for almost a year. It’s possible that Lomachenko could go back down to super featherweight for a fight before facing the Commey/Lopez winner for the Undisputed lightweight championship. Lomachenko vs. Gervonta (Tank) Davis is something of a dream match. He recently dropped his WBA Super featherweight championship and is looking to move up to lightweight. There are promotional issues that will always make Lomachenko vs. Davis a challenge to make. However, if they can get past them this might be the best time to make that fight! The fight however that makes the most sense is Lomachenko vs. WBC super featherweight champion Miguel Berchelt. Berchelt is a very good boxer with a good record. There are also not the promotional and television broadcasting issues that will likely get in the way of Lomachenko vs Davis. #vasiliylomachenko#loma#lomachenko#hi-tech #boxing

Vasiliy Lomachenko adds the WBC lightweight championship to his WBA & WBO championships with a 12 round decision over Luke Campbell at the O2 Arena in London. While I thought Campbell fought as smart and good of a fight as he could have. He had his moments. I fell that Lomachenko clearly won the fight. I also fell that if it wasn’t for Campbell’s double lege takedown of Lomachenko in the 12th round Lomachenko who scored a knockdown in the 11th round would have at least scored a second knockdown in the 12th round.

The Anthony Joshua Andy Ruiz rematch on December 7the will take place in Saudi Arabia. As you might recall Ruiz who upset Joshua in June was resistant to the location of the rematch. Regardless of where the rematch takes place, it may give us the answers to some unanswered questions from the first fight.

Taylor holds the IBF championship and holds the WBA and a share of the WBC along with Jose Carlos Ramirez who beat Maurice Hooker last month to take the WBO championship. Ideally, the winner of Regis Prograis and Josh Taylor will face Jose Carlos Ramirez for the undisputed championship!
Originally Posted To My YouTube Channel Sports Talk With Troy Anthony Joshua Andy Ruiz Rematch Announced, But Not Agreed On! Back in June Andy Ruiz Jr. Shocked the world and upset Anthony Joshua to win the WBA, WBO & IBF Heavyweight Championships. His contract had a rematch clause that favored than champion Joshua. It was announced by Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing that the rematch will take place on December 7th in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. However, despite the rematch clause, Ruiz has not agreed to these terms. The question is who has the most leverage? Joshua has the contract that Ruiz agreed to, Ruiz has 3 of 4 Heavyweight Championships. Who has the most to lose? If Ruiz refuses the current terms? I am of the opinion that one way or another Joshua is fighting on Dec 7th in Saudi Arabia.with at least one if not all three of the A Heavyweight Championships he lost to Ruiz in June on the line. If it’s not against Ruiz don’t be surprised if it’s against Oleksandr Usyk who is the #1 contender with the WBO and a Matchroom fighter. If Ruiz holds his position. He is promoted through the PBC and as long as Deontay Wilder wins his rematches with Luis Ortiz & Tyson Fury. He should get a shot at WBC Champion Wilder.
Regis Prograis Pulls Out Of World Boxing Super Series!
Prograis the WBA 140 pound champion was set to face Josh Taylor who holds the IBF championship at 140 in the finals of the World Boxing Super Series. Has pulled out of the competition.
The scheduled unification bout was expected to take place in October.
In July Jose Ramirez added the WBO championship to his WBC championship. Ideally, the winner of Prograis & Taylor would have faced Ramirez for the undisputed championship at 140. That is now on hold.
What’s next for Keith Thurman After Losing to Manny Pacquiao?
Thurman will take a bit of a step back, but I don’t expect it to be that big of a step back. I don’t see an immediate rematch happening. Maybe there will be a rematch sometime down the line? He won’t get the best of the best like the winner of Errol Spence & Shawn Porter, or Terence Crawford.
This being said I don’t see Thurman taking a big step down. I fell that the loser of Errol Spence & Shawn Porter could likely be his next opponent. Other possibilities include Danny Garcia, Mikey Garcia, Yordenis Ugas & Sergey Lipinets.
Coming off his big win over Keith Thurman. What’s next for Future Hall Of Fame boxer Manny Pacquiao
Don’t count on Pacquiao or any PBC promoted boxer to be in the same ring with Terence Crawford anytime soon. However, he still ha plenty of options. I believe that the PBC is going to match Manny Pacquiao up with the winner of Errol Spence Jr & Shawn Porter who fight to unify the IBF & WBC welterweight championships scheduled for September. If that falls through. Pacquiao has other options within the PBC. Mikey Garcia & Danny Garcia have the most appeal, but there is also Yordenis Ugas and Sergey Lipinets.
What about a rematch with Floyd Mayweather? I think that if it happens it is likely to be next. I think that if Mayweather wants to make the fight now is the time to do it. I really don’t think Pacquiao beats Spence, and despite coming off a win over Thurman. I’m not sure he beats Porter either.
Boxing is the subject that I fell the most comfortable and confident talking about, and that does not just go for sports. Sop when tragedies happen in boxing like they did this weekend. I fell I need to talk about what can be done to best prevent future tragedies from happening.
Boxing Must Enact Protocols To Best Protect Its Participants every boxer who gets into the ring knows there are risks. They know that they might not come out the ring the same or at all. These risks are not exclusive to boxing, but I believe magnified in boxing. This includes other combat sports as well as non-combat sports. Just because these risks are understood. It does not mean these risks should be accepted or understood as “part of the game”. There needs to be standardized rules and protocols in place, that are not subject to Athletic Commission or Sanctioning Bodie’s selectivity. I am not a doctor or a medical professional, but I do have some suggestions. Have a trained medical professional in each corner to observe the boxer to look for any indications something might be wrong. The referee can stop a fight to allow a doctor to decide if a cut is bad enough to end a fight. Also, allow the referee to stop the fight and have a doctor look over the boxer f they feel something might be wrong. Get boxes to post-fight medical exams and to any medical help they need right after the fight. If the placement of padding inside boxing gloves makes a difference. Standardize the gloves. The truth is that even with the best protocols in place we can’t prevent something bad from ever happening. However, we can greatly reduce the risk and how often they happen.
