That simple. Canelo has no shortage of opponents so who really misses out???
I understand. Nelo Runs Thisss. But thatís why most of the top guys and their promoters collude in a way to drive their purses up against the champs/stars. Boxing is all about precedent. What if they fight and itís a big success revenue wise? And Kovalevs cut ends up looking real small? That doesnít look good for his manager or promoter. It takes two to tango. In the end they will try and generate the most money even if that means paying the highest priced opponent. Course thereís risk factor too. A career high purse could mean a dollar more. Most name fighters make 2x 3x 4x 5x 6x plus to fight the top guy. U need to fight names to keep the fans happy. Floyd offered manny a career high to fight flate rate, why didnít he take it? Fight ended up huge, made way more. How did Connor make 70mil? Just cause ur earning a career pay check doesnít mean ur not getting ripped off or could have made more. Thereís a perceived pot. Itís all about the cut. This is why fights are so hard to make.

If a champ wants to stay active, pick a live body. They are out there.

One should never stop chasing greatness.

A 3rd fight is entirely unnecessary. Nelo out boxed him and out Mexican'd him. Plus there's no glory in beating up the elderly.
I have to agree with on this man. You are right, Canelo is good, but fighting cheap matchups like Smith, Fielding, Khan etc don't prove much. Also, fighting big named out of prime fighters like Mosley, Cotto and GGG doesn't do much either. If a trilogy were to happen, old GGG would really get smashed

I'm hoping Nelo's contract demands he up's his lever of competition each fight.

NO ROLLS !!!

It's ridiculous. Since when is a mandatory fight in Russia worth more than a Vegas megafight on Mexican holday vs the redhypded Mexican cashclencow?

Exactly man, you know, I don't see Canelo fighting prime-champ names. I humbly think he will continue maneuvering his way on towards cheap, easy fights until his contract is up and then retire. But who knows, maybe pressure and demand will build up too much where he will have to fight the best. I kind of doubt it though.

Why people don't wait to see how things shape up is confusing to me....

Then I remember I'm posting in NSB.

Kovalev has Yarde, a good fight that makes sense. Draining himself down for a career payday is not how Iíd like to see a warrior like Kovalev go out so Iím glad he didnít take the cheese.
