And some news analysts wondered if tonight’s fight could be a more exciting bout than the Mayweather vs Pacquiao Fight 2015. Earlier this week, Bernard Hopkins praised tonight’s lineup. As a partner with Golden Boy, he told news “Thank you everyone that participated in putting this event together. Right now, these fighters have a chance to be the ‘next big thing.’ This will be the shortest comment I’ve ever made: Canelo, you’re healthy, right? (nod) Kirkland, you’re healthy, right? (nod) Then, we’re going to fight, ya’ll.”
MayPac headed to Showtime and HBO. But tonight it was all HBO’s efforts. Peter Nelson, VP of Programming, said that Canelo Kirkland delivered the type of ticket that fans wanted. “This is exactly the kind of caliber event that makes stars. More people are going to see this event than anything since Muhammad Ali fought here in Texas.” Nelson added “I think that this is one of the signature events HBO will have this year. These are the stars of today, Canelo Alvarez and James Kirkland. This presents a great opportunity for Humberto Soto to bring his career back to a big stage. We are going to see fighters fulfill their potential on Saturday night.”
Before tonight’s fight, however, Bay Bay McClinton said Kirkland would impress news with a big win. The strength and conditioning trainer said “I only train greatness. On Saturday night, you will see greatness. You are going to see a different James Kirkland. The last time Mexico came to Texas, remember this: remember the Alamo.” He added “I always ask my fighters, ‘You want to be good, or you want to be great?’ Tomorrow, he’s [Kirkland] going to be great.” For all other boxing results click HERE.
