First topic message reminder :

So now Canelo has won the WBO junior middleweight champion, according to the WBO rules, Canelo can get an immediate title shot at WBO middleweight titleholder Billy Joe Saunders - provided Canelo openly declares he is moving up to 160.

Everyone knows Gennady Golovkin is desperate to clean up the alphabet titles and is very eager to face Saunders next.

So could Golden Boy scupper GGG's plans again?

Talent is lacking overall in most divisions. Don't get me wrong, there are some wonderful talents like Lomachenko floating about.

Fair enough

If GGG gets his lineal title he craves, then moves up to 168 and does the same?

Well I will sing his praises too.

I only blast GGG because other boxers aren't defended so well.

He can do no wrong. Oh well I guess he's the man Smile

Now personally I would rather blast the fighters that don't take on the best at their weight. As you have said before there isn't the talent there which makes it all the more frustrating that the best don't fight the best. When fighters are only fighting 1-2 times per year they shouldn't get 'easy' fights.

If they were fighting 3-4 times per year I could understand having occasional easier fights as there would be a lack of other valid fighters out there for them.

Boxing has become a very sanitised sport where the higher earning boxers can pick fights that aren't a challenge and blame it on a lack of money / interest in competitive fights.

It would be catastrophic for boxing, if top fighters had to move divisions every time they were unable to secure major fights in their own division. Great champions would never be able to establish title reigns. Boxing badly need to move back towards properly measureable weight classes and way from this mismash of blurred nermerous crossover divisions.

I still enjoy watching boxing, but it's become a bit sh1t. Not the same sport as 10 or more years ago.

Still some cracking fights being made, but not enough.

That is something we can agree on

More good fights need to be made
