This would be the exact opposite of the Canelo vs. Lara fight. Kirkland has no defense, comes straight forward and only throws bombs. Fight wouldn’t last 6 rounds and someone would be getting KOed.
Here is the news courtesy of Boxing Scene.
Canelo, Edison Reynoso, Jose ‘Chepo’ Reynoso, Oscar de la Hoya and Eric Gomez will meet during the last week of August or early September to begin to outline the future of Canelo. And James Kirkland is their first choice for December.
“[After the meeting] we will know if we’re fighting on the 6th or the 20th of December, will see what is best for us,” said Eddy.“
The fight won’t be in Vegas, it will either be in San Antonio or LA.
