Yildirim early on, no bother of him being tested or hurt

One fight on the 5th of May against either bjs or ggg


Late fight against ggg or bjs


Very possible

Can see him doing it np.

Fighting during the pandemic didnt seem to bother him in the slightest if anything it has made him better. I dont agree with Edward much but I did when he said Canelo doesnt have all the distractions of fans press etc etc. He is more focussed on the task in hand.

I wonder if, for some boxers, whether they would prefer to have a lot of fights before 30, then retire young. I am surprised Canelo isn't considering retirement soon. He's been fighting since something like 15, when he had his first pro fight. Mental to think he still has the desire.

Canelo must be legacy driven now having already earned more money than he could ever hope to spend. Assuming takes into account risk, perhaps he thinks there is less risk in two fights a year for a prolonged career than fighting more regularly but for less time?

It's not mental at all IMO. He's only 30 and physically in his prime. 15 years is pretty long but nothing compared Manny, Hopkins, etc.

I wonder when he started fighting as an amateur? Most Cubans start at 8-10 years old.

3-4 fights for him is good but whether it's good for us fans depends on who he's fighting. Hopefully not 4 mismatches against no hopers.
