Boxing is by it’s a nature a sport that is doomed to never truly live up to its success. This is the only sport where dream match-ups can happen. In football how tremendous would it be to see the Dallas Cowboys vs the Houston Texans in the Superbowl? Or the Lakers taking on the Knicks in the finals? But these scenarios only happen if by chance they make it in the playoffs that far.
Boxing is one with extreme match-ups happening simply by decision. That is why Houston will be hosting Canelo vs Kirkland May 9th at Minute Maid Park. While this fight is nothing like Floyd vs Manny, it is a fight that will serve fans with action and intensity at moments. This is a fight like a NBA All-Star game: action with very little defense and thrills.
