IBR on Hannibal Boxing


“If Alvarez, twenty-eight, beats Jacobs now little remains for him at middleweight. There’s a fight with Demetrius Andrade to crown an undisputed middleweight champion, but that fight is unlikely because Andrade, on top of possessing a dreadful style, has a title, which probably makes him Jacobs’s comeback target. And then there is the third go with Golovkin, which would happen even if both Alvarez and Golovkin (now also a DAZN fighter) were chilled in their next fights. With Golovkin finally beaten decisively (the only outcome anyone should expect the next time), Alvarez would be left waiting for the aspirants at junior-middleweight and even welterweight to pursue the greatest prize available to them. Alvarez could take them on as he chose: knocking off the ones with greater popularity than potential before some lesser opponent were to beat him to it, while also rushing to those fighters who might be legitimate threats in a few years.”
