Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders are understood to be in final preparations in sparring at the moment ahead of their May 8th Texas showdown.
A super fight of its kind given the popularity of Alvarez in America, Mexico and internationally.
He takes on Saunders from the UK in what could be an intriguing boxing match of its kind.
Both appear to be in tremendous condition for the bout.
Alvarez here can be seen working on his inside game for the fight (hat tip Fight Hype YouTube):
One would suspect Saunders will look to keep it on the outside and box as much as he can.
If Alvarez can force Saunders into the pocket more, this type of fight would surely suit Alvarez down to the ground.
Both have been putting in the work and appear to be near peak.
Both doing a solid job of promoting the fight individiually as the trend of more boxers doing so grows.
The death of main stream media both online and offline is happening way, way faster than anyone could have imagined at the moment.
It’s actually happening right now.
Niche publications, podcasts and YouTube channels taking over this year fully with less people turning to main stream media, or general, standard news, media outlets and affiliations, than ever before. Niche and specialist media is where its at moving forward from here on out.
The proof is in the numbers. The takeover is now complete.
Even we didn’t expect things to happen this fast but from boxing’s point of view, and this fight right here, Saunders and Alvarez have done a solid job of promoting so far. All boxers need to do this more moving forward.
Not long to go now until what promises to be a heck of a fight to be fair.
Roll on May 8th.
