Rich Schafer is already saying the only way Canelo fights Lara is if they run out of options. So that's Charlo x2, K9, Ishe Smith, Gabe Rosado, Trout rematch, Angulo rematch, jailed Carlos Molina all in line before Lara.

Did Schaefer give a reason why? Lara seems to be the next logical opponent for Canelo. Both guys just TKO'd a common opponent, Lara actually beat him first and beat him up so badly Alfredo quit. Lara even took the stage to challenge Canelo face to face during the post fight interview. What would he get out of a Rosado match instead of more stat padding?

Because Lara would expose him just like Mayweather did.

The dude is a product of a Television Station and last night's fight was more crap to prop him up.

He might be overrated but his fighting style would cause Canelo alot of problems.

Canelo can only fight in spurts and still looks tired at times. GGG is a good pressure fighter, knows how to cut off the ring pretty good and is one of the hardest punchers P4P.

His bodywork would slow down Canelo even more and Canelo's defense isnt good enough to simply lay on the ropes and take a breather like he was doing at times VS Angulo.

Lol..overrated? He's the top dog at 160. He beats Sergio and Quillin easily. He would destroy both Trout and Angulo. Who the hell has Trout beat? A past prime undersized Cotto? Angulo hasn't beaten anyone relevant. GGG is an excellent boxer with much more power than Angulo and would easily cut off the ring against Trout. Trout got put on queer street by Canelo, imagine what GGG would do.

What does Floyd have to do with Golden Boy/SMS/Showtime? If it was Mayweather Promotions involved, then yeah he might have a say. But I don't think Floyd has any pulll with Showtime to prevent something like this. Showtime is paying him to fight, not run business operations.

Seriously who does this kid think he is and what has he done to deserve this star power? He's beaten one 154 prime fighter in Austin Trout. I don't blame Canelo for having him wait.

Not sure if serious. Floyd is Showtime's cash cow right now. If he says he don't want 50 over on Showtime, they'll look into it.

Lara beat Trout more convincingly than Canelo did. I don't know if Trout won any rounds vs. Lara. And a lot of folks actually scored Trout as a winner vs. Canelo. I didn't but there fight was much closer.

Lara has better names on his resume than Canelo. He softened up Angulo for Canelo.

Floyd, Josesito and Shane Mosley < Paul Williams, Carlos Molina, Vanes Martirosyan

How does Schaefer have any claim to Golden Boy's (AKA Oscar's) fighters? Isn't he just an employee (CEO if I'm not mistaken)? Did fighters sign a promotional contract with Schaefer?

Floyd being Floyd again (allegedly)
Report: Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. helped beat up employees he suspected of stealing jewelry

The current Pound-for-Pound king pointed the finger at two men hired to do work at his property after jewelry went missing, TMZ Sports reports.


Boxing's top draw Floyd Mayweather Jr. reportedly orchestrated a beat down of two of his employees after he suspected them of swiping jewelry from one of his Las Vegas homes.

The current Pound-for-Pound king pointed the finger - and fists, clubs and various other weapons - at two men hired to do work at his property after jewelry went missing, TMZ Sports reported Wednesday.

Sources told TMZ Sports that the men were told by Mayweather to meet them at an off-site location. The WBC welterweight champ was reportedly waiting with "a number" of his crew and the resulting attack left both men hospitalized with broken arms and legs.

"It was some 'Breaking Bad' s---," a source told the gossip website.

Mayweather (45-0, 26 knockouts) announced last month that his next bout will be against WBA welterweight slugger Marcos Maidana on May 3 on Showtime Pay-Per-View.

Mayweather, who first announced the news of the bout on his Twitter account, took to social media last week to say the fight will take place at the MGM Grand in Vegas.

pretty sure this story is fake. Why would Floyd even get involved in that and ask the 2 men to meet him? If he really wanted to he could simply get some people to go to those 2 guys place and take care of them there.

But according to this gossip he was actually there on the crime scene and was watching the 2 guys get beat up...without thinking that they would alert the police after that.

Jermall Charlo is saying he thinks the Carlos Molina arrest this past week were staged and all an act. He might be right, apparently He's already looking at other options to face Canelo in July or his mandatory of K9.

Sucks for Charlo, shouldn't the fight just be rescheduled?
