"You guys just offered me that fight that you knew I wasn't gonna take so you can extend my contract, because it was nearly over", Diaz said. Immediately after Alvarez defeated Chavez, he was joined in the ring by Gennady Golovkin for an announcement that they would fight each other September 16. I just can't keep messing with this thing.
Floyd Mayweather (left) and Conor McGregor (right) have reportedly agreed to terms on a mega-fight.
"I think he's going to have to be very careful within the first five minutes". After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face).
McGregor and Mayweather have been flirting with this matchup for more than a year, but it appeared in recent months that the fight was actually going to come together. "That's what this fight is to me. His body can't take the damage", Poirier said.
"Mayweather, if you want to fight or have a rematch against Canelo, or a fight against Golovkin, go after them". Alvarez was just 23 at the time, and Mayweather, with a 49-0 record on the line, may not want to take on a stronger, more experienced version of the Mexican fighter. In that light, McGregor's complete lack of experience in sanctioned boxing matches could be attractive.
Well, it would be hard not to have seen this coming.
Not to discredit the former Bellator MMA 155-pound champion, Dustin knows the type of pedigree Alvarez comes with, but feels he has the ability to hand out damage in bunches. "That being said, I'm a warrior and I'm going to go out there and damage this guy", Fox Sports quoted Poirier as saying.
Meanwhile, White also talked about the status of the potential fight between Mayweather and McGregor, and as expected, negotiations are still at a standstill. "We have to get the right deal done, or it's not going to happen".
