For those of you who might have missed it or whatever, here's the full episode of Showtime's All Access episode one, for the September 15 fight between Canelo Alvarez and Josesito Lopez.
This has been edited, which I guess maybe means bleeping some curses, or perhaps there was a nekkid boob or the like. I don't know -- I haven't watched it yet, either.
We'll have a lot more on Canelo vs Lopez in the next 10 days, particularly next week when we really dig into the 9/15 cards, both of which I'm excited for, even though I'll only get to see one of them live. That's just how it's gonna be. I personally do think, at this point, that GBP and Showtime honestly have the stronger card, pound-for-pound if you will, but Chavez Jr vs Martinez is too good to pass up, at least for me.
I am wondering how many people might choose to save $60 and catch a replay of that, though, and just watch the Canelo show. I think the buys for Chavez Jr-Martinez are going to be interesting. Obvious gate hit, and a legit big fight, and it's going to bring in way more money than the Canelo fight, but that Canelo card can still make a dent in the PPV performance if not at the gate.
