The announcement of Miguel Cotto versus Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez took my breath away

THERE’S not much to get my juices flowing in the boxing world at the moment. But that could soon change.

On September 5 we have Josh Warrington in Leeds, defending his Commonwealth featherweight title against Joel Brunker from Australia and it could be a dangerous fight for Josh if Joel travels well.

Of course I should mention that Floyd Mayweather is fighting Andre Berto the week after. I was thinking of going over to Las Vegas to watch it, but I had and the offer of a guided tour around Scunthorpe in an open top bus, and the forecast for that day is torrential rain, so that swayed me. It certainly sounded more exciting than watching Mayweather.
