Canelo Alvarez-Josesito Lopez Preview
Lopez is a good kid who deserves a good payday. What he doesn't deserve is a beating.

The bout between Canelo Alvarez and Josesito Lopez is a done deal. Two name fighters, both coming off big wins, are going to get it on Sept. 15 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Could anyone ask for anything more? The answer is yes. Josesito came up in weight from junior welter to meet and defeat Victor Ortiz at 144. Now he’s being asked to move up in weight again to meet Canelo at 154. Anything can happen in boxing, but in the end numbers don’t lie. Lopez is a good kid and good fighter who deserves a good payday. What he doesn’t deserve is a good thrashing.

    Team Canelo Alvarez gives a whole new meaning to the word “CHERRY PICKING”. Canelo only fights opponents that old or smaller OR BOTH. That’s A PUNK AND BULLY mentality.NO WONDER HE’S UNDEFEATED. THERE ARE SO MANY FIGHTERS IN HIS DIVISION THAT HE CAN FIGHT, WHERE HE IS THE CHAMPION. INSTEAD HE PICKS ON AN OPPONENT THAT IS TWO DIVISION SMALLER.

    I DON’T CARE IF THIS FIGHT IS FREE, I’D RATHER BUY THE PPV FOR CHAVEZ JR VS MARTINEZ. I like fights where I’m not sure who’ll win

    lopez is a 140 pounder who has to go up to 147 to fight ortiz and came 144lbs during weigh in, now he has to go up to 154 to go up fight alvarez, when is alvarez going to fight someone in his division? maybe he is fighting a lightweight next. he already broke ulyses solis jaw who is a flyweight at best when he found out solis is sleeping with his baby mama.oh he has not fought a bantamweight yet or a featherweight yet, maybe next time.

    Lopez’s team is to blame for allowing the fight with Alvarez to happen. This tells me that they don’t care about the welfare of their fighter as long as they get a good payday.
