I think this fight would be really cool, although, it sucks it'll be a PPV fight. What do you guys think? I think GGG should handle it but I think it would be his biggest test.


depending on which Chavez we see will determine how the good the fight is. still like GGG doe.

GGG should be able to paste Chavez but who knows, Jr. seems to have picked up his dad's chin, maybe he'll get discouraged that he won't be able to put him away.

Then again, Chavez shouldn't have needed two fights to cleanly beat Brian Vera
chavez looked decent his last fight.. i'd like to see it
I saw Curtis Stevens boss a few rounds against GGG. That raised a small red flag imo.

Looking at his opponents, Chavez will be GGG's biggest test so far.
Didn't ninerdemon post an article stating that GGG is so bummed about his fathers' death that he is contemplating quitting boxing for awhile?

He had to cancel a fight because his native country had a 40 day ritual they do after family deaths. He isn't quitting... I think he is eager to fight a lot actually. He has a lot of momentum at the moment and he is creeping up there in age.

This. That's why they are pushing for this fight right now.
Khan vs Luis Collazo on moneys undercard.

Waiting on Broner...... Rumors say he might fight a tune up, ya dig?

That's correct. He goes against Thomas Dulorme for the vacant NABF 140 lbs. strap.

Alejandro Perez is a guy that I know personally from the Wildcard. He has had a few tough fights. He is signed for a title fight in Macau on May 31st if he gets past Martinez this Saturday. He has good power in his left hand. I am hoping he can capitalize on this opportunity for a title.
