Who needs this Canelo KO of a scarecrow?


PhilBoxing.com




THEY say Mexican boxing superstar Saul Canelo Alvarez captured his third world boxing crown by throwing a party at the overfilled Madison Square Garden in New York.

There indeed was a great victory ball but wasn’t it a plain butcher’s job Alvarez completed on Sunday?

The demolition was thorough, but what stood out in the gory mismatch was the sickening savagery.

**

There was no rugged exchange, not a bit of legit sporting action.

Canelo did not beat the WBA super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding.

He crushed a scarecrow!

**

Alvarez, 28, was merciless against the tall but hapless underdog from England.

Truth was Fielding was pure twig, visibly dead even before entering the ring.

Of course, Alvarez, in scoring a quick stoppage, was quiet and composed, no growl nor bristle.

He was purely methodical while performing an on-fight autopsy.

**

“We all knew he was weak to the body,” Alvarez would confirm after scoring the third-round knockout.

He had to land a total of 35 blows to the body to do his job and verify his suspicion.

There was indeed a fiesta, with over 20,000 in attendance erupting in glee.

It’s doubtful though if even a handful in the over-excited huge crowd had bothered to take a closer look at the real significance of the tasteless event.

**.

If didn’t take long before critics and pundits bore down on the overhyped mismatch.

There were those who started to doubt the wisdom of the prominent live streaming service DAZN in gambling on Canelo wholesale.

Others say the event, at its best, erased past blots on Canelo’s career, topped by the tainted Mexican meat case that had Alvarez getting suspended and taunted as Senor Canelo con Carne.

**

The mismatch did add glow to Canelo’s name, but hardly boosted his stock as a great warrior.

Canelo is badly in need of a truly great fight to polish and solidify his brand.

Oscar de la Hoya, Canelo’s patron and chief backer, mentioned IBF reigning middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs as possible next foe for Alvarez.

There was only faint mention of Gennady Golovkin who, De La Hoya had earlier said, would have to do a tune-up bout before being considered for another rematch against Alvarez.

**

There were also reports of Alvarez being lined up to headline a major Mexican card in Las Vegas in May.

His handlers said Alvarez will next revert back to 160 pounds and defend his world middleweight crown.

There’s an obvious rush to get rid of the bad taste caused Canelo’s meaningless ego exercise against a scarecrow.
