Between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin and last week's #SuperFly card, boxing fans had had it made in the last week or so. The over-saturation of the recent Mayweather-McGregor mockery stole all the attention from the boxing that mattered, unfortunately, but it won't keep dedicated fans from recognizing what's important.
We've lusted after this Canelo-Golovkin pairing for a while now, and the middleweight clash has all the potential in the world. All that's left now is to sit back and enjoy -- after listening to this episode!
But wait! There's more: we would be awful people if we didn't sing the praises of Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, Roman Gonzalez, Naoya Inoue, Antonio Nieves, Juan Francisco Estrada and Carlos Cuadras. They all contributed to a fine HBO card last weekend and it needs to be said.
