You must’ve have thought reading the title, who is “The One?” Is he finally getting married? He finally found “The One?” Answer is… EHHHH! WRONG! No, I am not but I am definitely excited for this Saturday. I cannot wait! One of boxing greatest cards since, I can’t even remember is finally, almost here! September 14th, 2013, it’ll be one of the greatest PPV’s EVER! The main event will be Floyd Mayweather Jr Vs Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. No doubt, this a great fight. Canelo is a young fighter who has fought not many good fighters. Mostly fighters completely out of their prime like Kermit Cintron, Shane Mosley and Carlos Baldomir. He also fought Matthew Hatton for a vacant title which he currently holds. He also some how managed to escape all the mandatories he had to fight like Angulo, Kirkland, Lara and fought Joesito Lopez. I will give him credit for fighting Austin Trout. His head movement looked great, he looked a bit smooth but his stamina, conditioning is EL TERRIBLE! I don’t know how he thinks he will be able to beat Mayweather by fighting only a few seconds of each round. Don’t get me wrong, Canelo is a great combination puncher, he has fast hands but his feet aren’t quick enough to cut off the ring. He some how thinks, watching the Cotto fight will help him against Mayweather. If anyone had watched Mayweather spar Vs Omar Henry (R.I.P), Mayweather willingly backed himself against the ropes just to counter Henry with uppercuts. This game plan will not work for Alvarez. Mayweather will jab to the body and work Canelo’s body to take advantage of his horrible stamina/conditioning. Canelo needs to fight every minute of every round, just throwing punches and not being predictable. Mayweather is a chameleon who can easily adapt to the environment under any circumstance. I wouldn’t be surprised if Mayweather actually looks to pop shot Canelo from a distance and keep him away as far as possible.
Then you have Lucas Matthysse (I can finally spell his last night right!) Vs Danny Garcia. This fight should be a main event of its own but it is not and im GLAD! This fight can go either way. A lot of people are counting out Danny Garcia simply because of the reason they think Matthysse posses the power to knock him out. Danny Garcia has a great chin. He also posses KO power, is able to box and has good ring IQ. While Matthysse is no joke! Watching him beat people up hurts you. When he fought Ajose Olsegun, my body was hurting watching him take all those punches. I couldn’t believe Ajose was taking that much punishment. Whoever wins this fight will be the new king of the JRWW division and I wouldn’t be surprised if the winner goes on to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr on Cinco De Mayo next May. That is unless of course, Amir Khan beats Devon Alexander which I don’t see happening.
You also have Ishe Smith Vs Carlos Molina. Carlos Molina is by far one of the most boring fighters to have on tv. Not only on TV but on PPV! Dude is a snooze to watch. All he does his hug and hug and hug his opponents. I don’t know if he enjoys holding men or just enjoys hugging but man, it is terrible to watch! The last time I watched him was winning a boring decision over old, joe, Cory Spinks and before that was against James Kirkland. The amount of clinching Molina does just wants you to get up punch him in the balls, so at least something exciting happens. Smith is a good fighter. Can be exciting. Seen him become Las Vegas first boxing champion after taking the strap away from Cornelius “K9” Bundrage. It was an exciting fight. I was expecting K9 to win the fight but Ishe came to fight and took the title away in K9 hometown of Detroit. Finally, starting the card (in reverse eh?) I think you have Pablo Cesar Cano Vs Ashley Theophane. The last time I had seen Theophane was on ESPN FNF. He had fought Delvin Rodriguez and was getting his ass whipppppeed only to be given the decision. It a was robbery! Teddy Atlas like he always does, went ballistic over the judging. I wouldn’t be surprised one day if Teddy actually gets up and socks one of them. The last time I had seen Cano fight was against Erik Morales and his face was bloody! Morales whipped that boy into a different area code. Rearranged his DNA. He got a whipping that night. Then I had seen him fight Paulie “The Magic Man” Malignaggi. That was a reallllly good fight. We all know Paulie can’t punch but he can box really well. Cano nearly knocked Paulie off his fight. Paulie had fought good punchers but never seen him get hit like he got hit against Cano.
So my predictions for “The One”
Mayweather Vs Alvarez – Mayweather UD. I just don’t see Alvarez winning with such limited experience. Just because he had beat Trout in a very close fight which could have gone either way, he wont win against a fighter like Mayweather who is probably 10xs better.
Garcia Vs Matthysse – I can’t choose. 50/50. Could go either way.
Smith Vs Molina – Molina by putting everyone to sleep in the crowd and filling out the score cards himself to give himself the victory.
Theophane Vs Cano – 50/50. This is supposed to be an easy win for Theophane but I see him in a tough fight against Cano.
As you’ve read, I am OFFICIALLY EXCITED! I CANNOT WAIT! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! A few more days and it’ll be here, then Tuesday GTA V!
OHHHH WEEEEEEE BABBYYYY!!!
