Can Canelo Álvarez Overtake Julio César Chávez as Mexico’s Favorite Boxer?

Boxing is as much a battle of might in the ring as it is of wits outside the ring. And when it comes to Mexican fighters, none wear the belt quite as well as Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez. Here is why Canelo could take the throne from longtime favorite Julio César Chávez as Mexico’s top boxeador.

From Bullied to Bully

His freckles and red hair earned “Canelo” his nickname, but he wasn’t always proud of it. He was bullied for his unique look throughout his childhood. One day, Canelo swung back. He’s been a fighter ever since.

Canelo and Chávez have had similar careers — an undefeated rise punctuated by a disappointing loss to a top-ranked fighter. The difference? Canelo fell to the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr., but his stamina going 12 rounds was enough to make even the toughest of Mexicans tear up with pride. Chávez Sr. lost to Oscar de la Hoya twice. First after a large gash opened in his brow prompting a doctor to stop the fight in the fourth round, then in a an eight round rematch TKO.

Stands Up for Mexicans

Feliz dia de la independencia de México si señor!!! ?? y QUE VIVA MÉXICO CA….MPEONES!!

If a woman as beautiful and successful as former Miss Universe Marisol González thought Canelo was husband material, then he’s gotta be doing something right. The couple was engaged in 2011 and broke up a year later.

J Balvin Debuts ‘Ma’ G’ with Canelo, Joins ‘Pokémon’ Album

J Balvin had a pretty busy weekend. The Colombian superstar performed his new single “Ma’ G” at the Canelo vs. Yildirim boxing match. He also announced that he will be a part of the Pokémon 25 album.

J Balvin entered the ring with Canelo.

J Balvin performed at the big boxing match and joined Canelo Álvarez in his walk to the ring. At the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Balvin gave a fiery performance of “Ma’ G” that led into his 2018 global hit “Mi Gente.” The latter served as the soundtrack to Canelo’s epic entrance. That must’ve added to Canelo’s luck because he defeated Avni Yildirim.

J Balvin went back to his hometown for the “Ma’ G” music video.

“Ma’ G” was written by J Balvin, his longtime producer Alejandro “Sky Rompiendo” Ramírez, and “Tusa” co-writer Keityn. After tackling drill music with Eladio Carrión in “TATA,” Balvin gives the genre another spin here as he boasts about being the best. In Spanish, he says that he’s strong like Mike Tyson and he’s breaking through like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Balvin’s getting his swagger back with this triumphant return to his hip-hop roots.

The self-proclaimed “El niño de Medellín” returned to the city that raised him in the “Ma’ G” music video. The homecoming king got the streets dancing for him. Balvin is back with this first taste of new music from his next album.

Balvin is also joining the Pokémon franchise.

After Post Malone celebrated 25 years of Pokémon in a virtual concert on Feb. 27, J Balvin revealed that he will be part of a special compilation album. Katy Perry will join him, Posty, and other not-yet-announced artists for the Poké LP that’s due out this fall.

Logan Paul Made a Lewd Comment About Jose Canseco’s Daughter After the Ex-MLB Star Challenged Him to a Fight

Logan Paul Made a Lewd Comment About Jose Canseco’s Daughter After the Ex-MLB Star Challenged Him to a Fight

Jose Canseco continues to stir the pot. But this time, he decided to pick a fight with two of the most controversial personalities on the internet: Logan and Jake Paul, otherwise known as “the Paul Brothers”.

Jake Paul is a YouTube star who has recently dipped his toe into celebrity boxing. In the past, he’s fought other YouTubers like KSI and AnEsonGib, but this weekend he fought against pro basketball player Nate Robinson. The match took place before the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight. Jake Paul ended up winning by knockout, and thus, his name began to trend on the internet.

It was because of Jake Paul’s win that ex baseball player Jose Canseco decided to challenge the YouTuber to a fight.

Jake Paul is known for being a YouTube personality but he is also known for being highly annoying. His sense of humor skews towards a younger audience who likes to watch Jake perform offensive “pranks” and an overly-machismo act.

And we all know Jose Canseco (unfortunately). The Cuban-American former MLB star is just as famous for his rocky personal life as his home run stats. He has been embroiled in controversies surrounding his drug-use and multiple domestic violence charges. Since his retirement from baseball, he has dipped his toe into both boxing and MMA fighting. And apparently, he has a high regard for himself.

Since Jake Paul won his fight against Nate Robinson so handily, Canseco decided he would bring the Paul brothers down a notch. On Sunday, he tweeted out: “I will fight anyone of the Logan [sic] Brothers they have enough for anyone with any type of talent yet or fighting skills”…Whatever that means.

Translation: Canseco was challenging either or both of the Paul brothers to a boxing match.

Never one to back away from free publicity, Jake’s brother Logan Paul jumped into Canseco’s thread and used the opportunity to drag Canseco’s daughter into the petty argument. He tweeted back: “no problem. i love smashing cansecos”. For those of you who didn’t know (which is pretty much all of us), Logan Paul was previously reported to be romantically involved with Canseco’s daughter, Josie Canseco.

Naturally, Jose Canseco didn’t take too kindly to Logan Paul speaking crudely about his daughter.

“Okay since you like smashing Canseco Logan get ahold of my agent Mike Maguire let’s get this done,” he fired off in a tweet storm. He followed that up with: “Logan Paul our fight will be definitely way more entertaining than the Tyson fight cuz at least we know one of us is going to get knocked out” and “And by the way no headgear needed for this fight I have a hard head.”

No word on whether or not this fight will come to fruition. We’re guessing, however, that it won’t.
