"I Want May 2, September 12" - Says Canelo


Recommended Posts

Alvarez has nationalistic pride and he is disappointed that the dates aren’t reserved for Mexican-themed boxing events.

 

"I would love to reclaim those dates, those dates are Mexican dates;  Cinco de Mayo, Mexican Independence Day. Next year, I want to be fighting on those dates.â€

Julio cesar chavez sr. always fought on those dates.

 

he's the one that made them important fight dates.  Oscar followed and now Floyd.

I wouldnt expect you to say Canelo would be right to want to reclaim the date -there is a little hate going on I seem to recall!!

canelo and jcc jr are about the same.

 

they are leagues below jcc sr, Oscar, marquez, barrera, morales.

an all time great would be able to compete with the likes of leonard, duran, hearns, McClellan, benn, hagler, Jackson.

 

he'd never touch any of them if all were in their primes fighting at the same time.

chavez  fought Camacho, taylor, whitaker, and Oscar on or around September 16....only the biggest fights of his career.

 

May 5 means nothing to Mexicans in mexico.  canelo is just being a bitch ass by wanting may 5 also.
