Nice relationship where everyone wins....but the fans fu-kk them.
And how serious is "talk" in Boxing? Pacquiao and Mayweather have been "talking" for how long? Canelo has been "talking" about fighting good opponents but what's happening? Nothing. I doubt Donaire and Arce fight next. Arce quit against an unknown Puerto Rican in his last fight and will most likely rematch him.
Only problem is Rigondeaux. He just had his 10th fight this month and he hasn't been showcased that much. But if Donaire is going to unify the belts he will have to face Rigondeaux anyways. Well unless Mares fights him first which I am positive Golden Boy won't do.
With Abner Mares there is no excuse. I actually believe Golden Boy will avoid that fight. They can set up Mares to face the winner of Vazquez-Marquez or Arce if he beats the Puerto Rican he should be having a rematch with. Same thing they are doing with Mares-Moreno, avoiding that fight.
Once Moreno moves up it should be a no brainer. Like I said he just made his debut in his last fight against Vazquez. Who would have been a better opponent to make a debut against? Note that the WBO put up the vacant belt for that fight so it was even a more lucrative fight for Donaire to take.
