— Canelo Alvarez (@Canelo) August 10, 2017
After yesterday’s claim by Oscar De La Hoya that September 16th’s Middleweight clash between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez will be the biggest in the history of the weight class, Ring TV released a new commercial hyping the fight.
The promo video features not only clips of Hagler/Hearns (what some people claim to be the greatest Middleweight fight in history), but images of “Sugar” Ray Leonard and other great middleweight fighters. As we get closer to fight night, the battle with the tagline of “I am Boxing” continues to grow in hype as it competes for headlines with Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.
As a weird caveat, Ice Cube appears in the video to act as narrator for the “I am Boxing” promo and is also creator of the BIG-3 3 on 3 Basketball league. The League had to move its championship game from the T-Mobile Arena to the MGM Grand, due to it being the same day as the Mayweather and McGregor fight. A small world in that regard.
