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.

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.
Manny Pacquiao Beats Keith Thurman Reaction! Manny Pacquiao becomes the WBA welterweight champion of the world by winning a 12 round split decision over Keith Thurman!
I had picked Thurman to win the fight going in. I just felt he was the better boxer. I was proven wrong! My personal score may have been closer than most, but I still had Pacquiao beating Thurman. I have to tip my hat to Manny Pacquiao for beating Keith Thurman who I also have to tip my hat to for showing humility in defeat. It’s a trait we see far too little of in boxing.
Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman Preview! Manny (Pac-Man) Pacquiao and Keith (One Time) Thurman both who hold a share of the WBA welterweight championship square off against each other tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nevada. Pacquiao comes into the fight with a record of 61-7-2. 39 wins by stoppage and has been stopped twice. Thurman enters the ring at 29-0 with 22 stoppage wins. The winner is very likely to face the winner of Errol (The Truth Spence) & Shawn (Showtime) Porter who are set to meet in September.
Unified middleweight champion and WBA super-middleweight champion Saul Canelo Alvarez has decided to forgo a September date that would have likely been used for a third fight with rival Gennady GGG Golovkin. While nothing is certain it is very possible that Canelo is eyeing a fight with WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Krusher Kovalev who would have to get past challenger Anthony Yarde in August. Mexican Independence Day is Septembe16th and that weekend is always a big one in boxing. DAZN who broadcasts Canelo’s fights has some options. They can match up GGG with either Demetrius Boo Boo Andrade for Andrade’s WBO middleweight championship. They can also match GGG with Unified super-middleweight champion Callum Mundo Smith. If they can’t match GGG up with either they can match Smith and Andrade. The other option DAZN has is to hold the Anthony AJ Joshua/Andy Destroyer Ruiz rematch that weekend.
What’s Next For Jermall Charlo & Demetrius Andrade?/The State Of The Middleweight Division.

Lakers Trade For Anthony Davis. Are They Mortgaging Their Future For Short Term Success? The Lakers are acquiring Anthony Davis in exchange for Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart & Brandon Ingram. They are also sending New Orleans three future first round picks. Including the fourth pick in this year’s draft. They already have the first and 18th picks. Although The Lakers may be risking their long term success. Now may be as good as any to make a move. Golden State may be without Klay Thompson & Kevin Durant due to injury and free agency next year.
