Will it be good or bad for Boxing if Canelo wins tonight
For the first time in years a Boxing fight is so hyped in the mainstream media. Everybody on the web is going crazy and talking about it. Celebrities tweeting about it to the millions of followers they have and the fight reaches to the non boxing fans. I even heard here in Romania two guys talking about the fight in a bar last night.
So what if Canelo wins? He will be bigger than life in Mexico and among mexican americans but can he become a mainstream star in America like Floyd became after the DLH fight? What about the long term health for the sport? After Pacquaio got smoked Floyd is the only man that puts Boxing on the mainstream map. Mayweather has generated hundreds of millions and a lot of attention to our sport thanks to his mouth and his persona outside of the ring while Canelo seems to be much more humble and relaxed in the media, plus he cant speak english and its gonna take a couple of years till he will be able to hold interviews in english.
btw sorry for my ****ed up english, its not my native language
