Bob Arum had no dog in the hunt Saturday, when Canelo Alvarez got the W over Gennady Golovkin at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Ya know, where what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, where some of us wonder if GGG is going to campaign again.
The guy is 0-for-2 against the redhead over there, and there is no shortage of folks who cannot understand why he isn’t 2-0 versus the Mexican. Does it perhaps have something to do with the fact that there is the perception that Canelo is the “house” fighter in Nevada?
I put that to Arum, when he came on TALKBOX. Would he, if he handled GGG, seek to place a third bout between Canelo and the Kazakh hitter out of Vegas?
“Two of the three judges were not from Vegas. I had it like 8-4, 7-5 for Golovkin. But the judges from ringside can see it better, and they’re good judges,” the Brooklyn-born deal maker told us.
Another guest on the show, Doug Fischer of RING, also debated with me whether maybe it would be a good idea for Team GGG to give Vegas a pass. Fischer said he’d like to see the third tango at a stadium in Texas, or in NYC.
Your thoughts, friends? If YOU handled GGG, would you refuse to place the third Canelo v GGG bout in Sin City?
