In my opinion. This is more about the backlash from the opponent than from his Ankle... Golden Boy put the word out that Clottey was up next and were met with less than pleasant reviews so this "Ankle" injury came at the right time, so that HBO & Golden Boy can regroup & pick a better, more known opponent to make a big splash in Canelo's debut with the network...


-The Commish :

We hope Canelo's "ankle injury" heals fast. You just know when the bout is re-scheduled, the date will not work for Joshua Clottey's schedule and another name will magically appear in his place, a name acceptable to the decision-makers at Canelo's new home of HBO. Get better fast, Canelo! -Randy G.

Hmm, Canelo vs. Chavez Jr maybe??? I'd rather see that instead of him fighting Cotto. Canelo vs JR would be a pick 'em fight IMO. No idea who takes that one or at what weight it would be. Either at Chavez weight or Canelo weight? LOL! They will just make up some numbers so who cares I guess.

Welove you "newbies" jumping aboard. Welcome michigan400. Looks like you have been reading more than posting all year. Your comments are as welcome as any others! Keep 'em coming! -Randy G.

Is he really hurt? Or did someone's spies hear about how Josh was looking in training? I bet Reynoso got the word back, snapped Canelo's ankle and started doing the Shmoney Dance in joy.

Hehehehehe! YUP! I used to get sick right on time when I was a kid not to go to Mass on Sundays. Danggit! Now pugs are getting sick right on time to get out of none-appealing-too-fans scraps. Holla!

Canelo fight Lara in July, his next fight was scheduled for December, what kind of "ankle injury" takes 5 months to heal????


-flackoguapo :

the kind more money makes feel better


-Skibbz :

I reckon he let his belly swell up too big, his wallet is a little too hot in his jeans and he's spending it with a passion. He is Canelo, El Rey. In his mind he can take whatever time out he wants because he knows come Cinco de Mayo his mega fan base will strip their wallets if they have to, to watch him fight.

Though he's clearly faking, it's not unheard of. That kinda ankle snapping is the one you get if you go one on one with Manny Pacquiao on the basketball court. Something like this:

This injury and the timing of the announcement seem odd. Its strange to think not too long ago that both Canelo and Cotto had penciled in December dates. Now neither are fighting until sometime next year. I still think Cotto is the choice of Mayweather and Showtime to be Floyd's May opponent. I also think Golden Boy and Top Rank are getting concerned that Cotto could go that direction instead of facing Canelo. So Canelo pulls to allow himself to start negotiating now for the Cotto fight much like behind the scenes Mayweather and Showtime are probably already doing with Cotto. Golden Boy/Top Rank/HBO want Canelo-Cotto to happen and are willing to forgo a fight in December to give all parties the best opportunity to make it happen.


-Radam G :

I'm going with Cotto-Canelo and Mayweather-Khan. Holla!


-brownsugar :

Khan vs FM doesn't beat Canelo vs Cotto on Cinco da Mayo. However Khan vs FM should do well in England. Floyd better pay Schaefer under the table to make something happen. Or hopefully the arbitration with GB will be resolved. Oscar teased releasing Schaefer from his contract if certain conditions are met. In other words "if the price is right".
