Canelo Alvarez next in line for Pacquiao, could be a good and challenging match for Manny.

Canelo Alvarez next in line for Pacquiao, could be a good and challenging match for Manny. Atleast one side of the promotional outfit wanted this match to happen.

Oscar Dela Hoya the founder and President of Golden Boy Promotion is campaigning for the fight between the Mexican Superstar and the Filipino icon to happen.

“Anything’s possible. That’s one of the reasons I was extending the olive branch. The fans want to see these kinds of fights,” Dela Hoya told Pugmire.

President of Top Rank seems to be agreeing to the idea but don't bet on it yet.

“I’d be happy to talk to Oscar about any subject in boxing he wishes to talk to me about,” Arum said in the same Los Angeles times report.
“All this baloney about a cold war has never really applied to Oscar and myself. We can talk bout any subject in boxing rationally. … We might disagree on a particular point, but we can talk. I hope we’ll get together and have some significant meetings in the near future,” added the Top Rank chief.

Canelo Alvarez would be the one option of Pacquiao other than Alvarado and Marquez, and that flamboyant guy from Golden Boy promotion as well, yup Adrien Bronner, he could be alright.

Who do you think should Pacquiao fight aside from Floyd Mayweather?

One FC: Team Lakay predicts KO win by Eduard Folayang


Team Lakay coach Mark Sangiao predicts Eduard Folayang will knock out his Japanese opponent, Kotetsu Boku, in the ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC) event on May 2, revealing that the Team Lakay fighter has improved a lot.

“But if Eduard won't be able to knock Boku out, I'm sure it's going to be a great fight until the third round and it may go to a decision,” Sangiao said.

He admitted that Boku is a great fighter, especially in boxing. “He is one of the best boxers in the ONE FC Lightweight division.”

Compared to Folayang’s past opponents, Sangiao said Boku is faster and a good striker. That’s the reason, he said, they are not taking chances, specially that Boku just came from a first-round knockout win over Arnaud Lepont at ONE FC 14 in March in Malaysia.

“Eduard is undergoing a very intense training in all aspects of mixed martial arts, in standing and on the ground. There are some differences from some of the routines that we were doing before,” Sangiao said.

Folayang’s training regimen includes strength and conditioning in the morning, skills training in the afternoon and sparring sessions twice a week. “We are focusing in all aspects of the game,” the coach said.

A hired foreign wrestling coach likewise comes up to Baguio City every other week to train Folayang and the other Team Lakay fighters. Ground game or wrestling has been identified in the past as a weakness among these Filipino MMA fighters, which prompted Team Lakay to hire a foreign wrestling coach.

But if Filipino MMA fighters have a weakness in their arsenal, so does Boku, Sangiao said.

“We see some weaknesses in Boku's skills and that's one thing that we are trying to focus on right now, but this is MMA so we are preparing in all aspects of the game. We see some holes on Boku's skills and I hope we could address that during the fight,” he said.

Folayang (13-4) and Boku (21-9-2) will fight in ONE FC: Rise of Heroes’ co-main event headlined by the bantamweight world championship battle between Brazilian Bibiano Fernandes and Japanese Masakatsu Ueda at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena. In an earlier interview, Folayang expressed confidence he will win against the Japanese.

“Mananalo ako. Magaling sya sa striking pero magaling din ako. Malakas ako sa kanya sa takedown,” he said. ###
