While so many Boxing fans have been disappointed with the MayPac Fight last year, another contest that will test the love of people to boxing has been announced. Yes, it’s the Alvarez - Khan Showdown on May 7, 2016 (Live on HBO PPV) while the venue hasn’t yet determined. If you’ve been fantasizing about what you heard, you don’t have to because this big even is sure to happen.
After the victory against Miguel Cotto via decision, it is expected that Canelo Alvarez will be looking for pricey fight that will definitely raise his profile in the boxing history. And with the sweep fights by Mayweather, hopefully Alvarez will be the next challenger after the Pacquiao’s loss. On the other hand, another guy is hungry for victory using his accompanying skill and braveness – a very credible opponent Amir Khan. However, in spite the best fights in his career, there were also struggles face by this man especially when he fought the light-hitting Chris Algieri.
When it comes to performance in the ring, there is no doubt Alvarez has the advantage compared to other better fighters lined up in the boxing arena today. He may not be unbeatable but this guy will surely fight slugfest against any opponent, unlike with Mayweather over-rated hope when he faced Pacman. Yes, we can understand that boxing is business but is must be treated as an intense sport and should be played like how we knew it was in the past. While Mayweather broke the mechanics of this sport, Alvarez will no doubt unleash his potential and the one that will step up in the upcoming fight.
Speaking of Khan’s spectrum, he is no doubt one of the welterweight fighters in boxing today. But the question is would he still manage enough to face larger opponents like Alvarez? That question will be answered in May 7 and that is going to happen very soon. If you read the same articles online, one thing is very common and all of them are saying this fight is going to be an epic fight than MayPac fraud of the year. However, according to Oscar Dela Hoya this fight is a bunk, knowing the mismatch between two fighters. In that said, maybe Golden boy doesn’t want to get disappointed gain comparing the next Marvin Hagler – Sugar Ray Leonard fight.
