K9 Bundrage Hopes Golden Boy Allows Canelo Bout

Last Saturday night in Cancun, Cornelius "K9" Bundrage dethroned champion Carlos Molina to take the IBF light middleweight title. The 41-year-old (35-5 19KOs) was not fazed by a partisan home crowd and dropped Molina in the first and tenth rounds to regain the title he lost last year. Bundrage took the fight 115-110, 116-109 and 117-106 to become the oldest man to even win a world title in the 154lbs division.

Bundrage now wants a crack at Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (44-1-1, 31KOs) and claims his promoter, Golden Boy Promotions, had been protecting the fighter in the past. He now hopes Golden Boy will allow the fight to happen.

He told the Ringside Toe 2 Toe podcast: “They were trying to protect their investment. They wouldn’t want to put Saul Alvarez in with me because of all that money they had behind him. After Mayweather, the biggest star out there is 'Canelo', so they wouldn’t want him to lose."

“Now he’s fought Mayweather and he’s fought against Lara, guys like (Austin) Trout, I feel like they will take a chance with a guy like me. He’s seasoned now and more of a veteran, and they will probably take that chance.”

Not happening. Even if it did K9 would get punished.

[QUOTE=Czarczar;15026959]Canelo has no belts but everyone wants to fight him. Also, I have never seen Molina get hurt so many times. Bundrage looked like he was getting tired like Canelo.[/QUOTE] Cuz boxing isn't about being a champion anymore. It's about…

[QUOTE=wiz1030;15027054]Why don't people understand that Canelo is not a junior middleweight anymore?[/QUOTE] I guess every fighter in every weight class is actually fighting 1 weight above then they actually think they are? dont all fighters cut weight? .......
