Thou shall not recycle duds

By Recah Trinidad

09 May 2017



SOME time in the third round, Julio Cesar Chavez, The Elder, was observed hollering from ringside for his son to throw more punches. Chavez Junior was softly, sporadically hitting at Canelo Alvarez. But going by the nature of the mega fight, the Battle for Mexico, the punches were nothing but duds, dead bullets.

Alvarez was throwing bombs, Chavez was spewing empty shells.
The mega bout was dead the moment Chavez’s nose got smashed and bloodied in the second round. In the break for the third round, the heir to the great boxing legend Julio Senior was a lost, shivering pup crying for home.

**

He was dismantled, shamed beyond recall.

It’s odd, but what would come next was this question on whether Alvarez could inflict the same harm and humiliation on the great Gennady Golovkin, unbeaten unified world middleweight boxing champion.

Sorry. In order for that atrocity to happen, GGG would have to play the role of a hollow and undeserving heir, the way the droopy Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. barely survived during the last Cinco de Mayo weekend.

**

Next would come calls for Chavez Junior to stay away for good, for his own good, for the good of boxing.

There were reports the Golovkin-Alvarez super bout was being quietly cooked up weeks ahead of the tasteless Alvarez-Chavez Jr. mismatch.

There were actually other names being mentioned as next foe for Alvarez, ahead of the Chavez Junior demolition.

**

But didn’t Alvarez finally agree to box Golovkin because he could no longer stand being incessantly called a coward?

“I have no fear,” Alvarez exuded during the on-stage victory ceremony.

Alvarez, the Pride of Mexico, would need more than raw grit and courage, if he hopes to be wholly competitive against Golovkin come Sept. 16.
