So this is, unusually, my very first personal thread. I suppose it's a little easier to launch one's own subject in these less frequented waters. Anyway. I'm a closet boxing fan, and a newly converted UFC fan too, this past year. Right now I have two upcoming fights I'm keenly anticipating. Firstly, my favourite foreign boxer - Saul ''Canelo'' Alvarez finally takes on big-mouth Erislandy Lara - tomorrow our time. Saturday night in the US. I'm fighting with myself whether to fork out PPV on Main Event... As much as I'd like to see the fight, even $30 can be a waste on an event that could be over in a New York minute! This young man Canelo though is something else. Turned pro at 15 with the usual rags to attempted glory and riches story, fighting to get himself and his extended family out of the Mexican poverty we rarely hear much about. 15 is ridiculously young to turn pro. He's 23 now; and was undefeated in approx 30 fights, until losing on points to Floyd Mayweather after 12 gruelling rounds a year ago. He's a class act. Exciting, honourable and extremely likeable. And I want him to reignite his career in beating this trash-talker Lara tomorrow! And I want to see it but, as I said, can't quite see whether the outlay is worth the risk of a short ''event''. The other fight of my two-hander is even more important...Our own Daniel Geale fighting Godolvkin. But I've just realized that deserves an individual thread! Not sure there are many fight fans here on Silvertails, anyway; but I guess I may get some idea now.
