    Canelo vs Miguel Cotto Recap, Klitschko vs Tyson Fury Preview

    in Sports

    Rumors have swirled about how many Pay-Per-View buys Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's win over Miguel Cotto pulled in, and so far the news is quite good, if not surprising. It was a solid kinda-middleweight fight, but perhaps not the clash many had hoped for.


    The fight that stole all the attention was Francisco Vargas' war with Takashi Miura. In danger of being stopped by a damaged eye, Vargas rallied to end Miura's night in the 9th round. It was an instant "Fight of the Year" contender.


    As some may have expected, Guillermo Rigondeaux didn't entertain much on the card.


    But this coming weekend we get to see two huge fighters compete for the heavyweight title on in Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury, on HBO. This could be a case of who you think will win and who you want to win being two different things.


    Also on the menu, James DeGale fights a comebacking Lucian Bute on Showtime in Quebec City.


    All these things and more will be covered by James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Fight City's Patrick Connor. And probably with too many jokes thrown in.

    Miguel Cotto vs Saul "Canelo" Alvarez Preview with Brin-Jonathan Butler

    in Sports

    2015 has been a strange year, boxing fans. The disappointments have often out-weighed the good we could take from fights, but it would take more than that to scare us hardcore types away. Also, if we'd have walked away, we would have missed one of this year's biggest matchups in Miguel Cotto vs Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.


    And that's exactly the big fight we're previewing this week on the show. James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Fight City's Patrick Connor welcome back to the show writer and filmmaker Brin-Jonathan Butler to dissect what could be another great Mexico vs. Puerto Rico matchup.


    On the Pay-Per-View undercard, Takashi Miura risks his 130 lb belt in taking on unbeaten Mexican Olympian Francisco Vargas, bantamweight titlist Randy Caballero takes on UK native Lee Haskins, and Guillermo Rigondeaux makes his first appearance of 2015 as a recent addition to the card.


    Get ready with all your beers, cocktails and bon-... Accoutrement.

    Ep 503 Miguel Cotto vs Saul Canelo Alvarez BOXiNG Wrap-up Show

    in Sports

    It's billed as Puerto Rico vs Mexico, but to boxing fans one doesn't need to say more than Canelo vs Cotto. The most popular fighters from both nations collide in a history making bout for the ages. ONTHEGRiND BOXiNG breaks it all down in the aftermath. Miguel Cotto gave up his WBC Middleweight Championship with a great money excuse handed to him by the WBC, in his refusing to pay the man he never intends to face, Gennady Golovkin step-aside money, or to pay his sanctioning fee. Should Canelo win, he's awarded Cotto's belt. Should Cotto win, he gains nothing more than a victory and an uncertain future.
