Canelo KO’s The Krusher What’s Next? Saul Canelo Alvarez wins the WBO Light heavyweight Championship by knocking out Sergey Krusher Kovalev in the 11th round! Who will his next opponent be? It’s possible that he will unify with WBA Champion Dmitry Bivol. It is possible that Canelo will choose to fight at Super Middleweight. If that’s the case Bivol has expressed a willingness to fight at 168 in the past. If not Bivol fights can be made with Billy Joe Saunders or the winner of Callum Smith/John Ryder. Do not expect Canelo to face rival Gennady GGG Golovkin, WBC/IBF Light heavyweight Champion Artur Beterbiev or the top WBO Contender Gilberto Ramirez.
What’s Next For Shakur Stevenson After Beating Joet Gonzalez? Shakur Stevenson, who won the Silver medal at the 2016 Olympics becomes WBO Featherweight champion with an impressive 12 round decision over Joet Gonzalez? I felt that his performance reminded me of Floyd Mayweather at 147 & 154. I think Stevenson has all the talent and potential in the world. Like Mayweather, he picked his spots, was very efficient with his punches. Like Mayweather at 147 & 154, he might not have knockout power, but he does have enough pop in his punches to make opponents think twice. Mayweather was at the end of his career and from 130-140 While he was never a KO Artist. He had decent power. I think at 126 & 130 Stevenson is going to be just fine. However at 135 & 140 where his opponents are going to be stronger. If he doesn’t at least matain his Make you think twice power. I think someone could stop him in the late rounds. This is just an observation and opinion and these concerns won’t suffice for a few years if at all. Anyways this is more about Shakur Stevenson’s inmate future. Where the newly crowned WBO Featherweight Champion has a lot of options. He called out IBF Champion Josh Warrington there are some obstacles but it is a makeable fight. The top contenders for the WBO Championship are Michael Conlan, Jessie Magdaleno & Carl Frampton. All three are Top Rank/ESPN boxers. WBO Super Bantamweight Champion is Emanuel Navarrete & The WBO Super Featherweight Champion is Jamel Herring. Both are also Top Rank/ESPN boxers. So basically Shakur Stevenson has options.

I know I already posted my video from the first day, but I’m trying something new here. When I go to a convention or report on a boxing match or any other sporting event instead of making a post for each video. I plan on making a post for the event and sharing all my videos in one post. So along with my Saturday & Sunday videos I am reposting My Friday video!
Rose City Comic Con September 13-15 2019. Oregon Convention Center in Portland Oregon.
On Saturday September 28 2019 IBF welterweight champion defeated his WBC counterpart Shawn Porter at the Staples Center in Los Angeles California. In this post are my preview video, post fight video and my what’s next video.
I don’t think there is anything more valuable than social skills, and I feel the only way to develop them is through experience when a person is young. For those of us who deal with invisible disabilities Such as ADHD, Autism & other Learning Disabilities. Our parents often feel a need to protect us in a way that keeps us from experiencing and developing our social skills.

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.
Making A Case For Sports Therapy For Invisible Disabilities! In my life dealing with my own invisible disabilities. I fell nothing has helped me more then physical exercise and participation in sports. It has helped to improve my eye-hand coordination, and how to work with others. What kind of sports do I think are best for someone like myself? I really like team sports like football, basketball, soccer, water polo, baseball or volleyball for example. When it comes to individual sports. I think combat sports like boxing or MMA. Since when you train you to work with a partner. However, at the end of the day, the best sport is the one you or your kid will willingly participate in.
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.
I Lost My Glasses
A short True Life Story.
On the way to the gym. I was wearing my sunglasses and placed my prescription glasses in the pocket I also keep my phone in. My guess is that when I took my phone out to check the time my glasses fell out and I did not notice. I really liked those frames, as a matter of fact, I just had an eye exam and was having new lenses made for them.
There is a silver lining. If that’s the right term to use here. A few years back someone left a pair of glasses lying around my home. After talking to my housemates no one could figure out who they belonged to. I liked those frames and used them for my next pair of glasses. I hope that someone found my glasses yesterday and is putting them to good use for themselves.
So I am without glasses for a week or two. Unless I misplaced them in my room somehow.
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.
