Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas-  Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya addressed the press shortly after Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's unanimous decision victory over Austin Trout. The former 6 division champion was asked what he thought about a possible unification fight between Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), who holds the WBC and WBA junior middleweight titles and IBF champion Ishe Smith. De La Hoya said that fight is certainly possible down the road but that all of their focus is on a showdown against Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs). 

"Canelo wants all the titles. He wants to unify the titles. Ishe Smith just won a championship and he is in a hot division. There is no reason why he can't be in the mix for these fights but Canelo's focus right now is to make the biggest fights out there and that is Floyd Mayweather," De La Hoya stated.

[QUOTE=junior gong]And more deaths. This isnt clever, its stupid and bases itself on the incorrect assumption that all fighters have an identical metabolism and can micromanage things like rehydration. Go and talk to some fighters or hang out with some who are busting their ass to make weight. If...

[QUOTE=turnedup]How do I know when a fighter poses a legitimate threat to Floyd Mayweather? When his fans come out in flocks to bash and critique the other guy and play offense with a million reasons why Floyd would K.O. or outbox the other guy. We've seen this for Pacquaio, Martinez, Paul Willia...

[QUOTE=Starz20]You're a Floyd hater! Canelo is clearly 20-22 pounds heavier than Floyd on fight night, boxing skills Canelo would get destroyed by Floyd! Power Canelo is much stronger... Now if Canelo fought GGG, Kid Chocolate, Martinez, Lara, Ward, people who could take that power he would get h...
