    in Sports

    The Pound4Pound Kings of Boxing Broadcast Journalism. ONTHEGRiND BOXiNG is the world's number 1 boxing podcast, and blogtalkradio's original boxing program.


    Many boxing observers are accusing Amir Khan's father, Shah Khan of signing his own son's death warrant by negotiation for an agreeing to a fight with lineal middleweight title-holder, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The jump up in weight is widely considered too great for Khan who moves up a full weight class and a pound, to what has become known as "Canelo weight."

    Even as "middleweight champion," Canelo is back to doing what he does best, facing smaller challengers nobody in his weight class is worried about.


    ONTHEGRiND BOXiNG breaks down the fight in the aftermath along with the latest boxing news, commentary, predictions and analysis from around the boxing world.

    Canelo Alvarez vs Amir Khan Official, Kovalev-Pascal II Recap with Matthew Swain

    in Sports

    Well that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs Amir Khan announcement sure came out of nowhere. How are we even supposed to react to news like this? A welterweight and big junior middleweight fighting for the middleweight title at a catchweight? It's weird. Some like it. Some don't. Patrick Connor of The Fight City is joined by Matthew Swain of The Queensberry Rules in dissecting the matchup and figuring out just how hard we should roll our collective eyes, if at all.


    Also a likely topic is last weekend's sacrificial offering of Jean Pascal upon the altar of Sergey Kovalev. Was the rematch productive at all?
