What happened to the Canelo fight? And why is this being promoted by the fossil that is Don King?

Makabu is promoted by none other than Mr.King himself, and if Makabu doesn't flee ship than we're going to have Don King once again co-promoting one of the biggest fights of the year in Canelo-Makabu. 

I believe this is a mandatory fight that can't be delayed, if Makabu wins he'll be looking at this fight in January than Canelo in May.

Yeah, I'm not so sure about Canelo facing Makabu anymore. I'm kinda thinking all that "breaking news" and face off was just a publicity stunt for the WBC. God knows that they and the mighty Don Sulieman LOVE attention!!!
I still have left Canelo Makabu on the schedule as a Rumoured bout. But yeah, 1.Don King is involved!!! I really, really doubt Canelo, a man who went to court to get out of dealing with Oscar Dela Hoya, will want any part of a co promotion with Don King!
2. Makabu might well lose this fight here!!!! Thabo Mchunu is very good. He is a top 10 rated (5 IMO) Cruiserweight who is off the back of 2 great wins. Going into enemy territory in Russia and 1st defeating Russian hero and World Champion Denis Lebedev. Then going back to Russia and schooling Olympic Gold medalist Evgeny Tishchenko!
Of course Makabu has a couple of really nice recent wins in Russia himself. My point is that this fight will be a highly competitive, likely war, that anyone could win.

I want to see Canelo try unify at 175lbs anyway. Fights with Beterbiev, Bivol, even Joe Smith Jr are much more appealing and intriguing to me

Also, about Makabu Mchunu. I just remembered that this is a rematch from around 5 years ago. Makabu won by 11th round TKO but Mchunu was winning the fight!

The first fight was pretty comical, there was a whole moment of each of them low blowing. Makabu is allergic to boring fights. He should win and go on to fight Canelo, I don't see any issue other than Makabu losing.

Does anyone know who should be favored in the Langston vs Kisner fight? Seems like Langston should be the favorite, but everyone is picking Kisner on Tapology.

If you try to order this PPV online it currently just sends you to a 404 error. I don't know if Don King has a TV deal(lol) or something but as it stands it's impossible to order and watch this fight. 

*Nevermind, found it on FITE tv that's streaming the event. The online site that's broken is Don King's personal website which also looks like it was made in 1998/

Makabu vs. Mchunu II
Thabiso Mchunu, DEC
Despite everything, this is a good fight! Genuine top 5 Cruiserweights go head to head! Tapology is awful confident in 1 guy when it's a proper 50 /50, even the Bookies have them close to dead even! Makabu is the tiniest of favourites at around - 130. More than 8% should be taking Mchunu IMO. I think I'm going to take him myself. He's the better boxer, Makabu the better puncher. In the 1st fight Mchunu was ahead on the cards before an 11th round TKO. This time he may last, he's definitely an improved boxer since then

Bryan vs. Guidry
Trevor Bryan, DEC
Man, This fight is all you need to know about the WBA being a corrupt ************* joke!!!! This fight between a guy who is nowhere near any respected top 30 ranking faces a Shrimper who has never fought for more than 8 rounds, and its labelled as a WBA World Title Fight!!!!! The fact that its promoted by Don "biggest ******* alive" King is just the cherry on top of this **** Cake!!!

Hefny vs. Scott
Ahmed Samir Hefny, DEC
Why was everyone picking Hefney when he was facing a better opponent? Now he has a late replacement much less experienced guy and nobody is picking him now? Lol

Predictions: 2 of 2 Winners, 2 Perfect, 150 Points   |   Tied for 71st

Bryan vs. Guidry
I want Trevor Bryan at -2000. He has a sassy oshi-dashi. Bryan should immobilize the ring announcer. Believe it!

Makabu vs. Mchunu II
I love Ilunga Makabu at -130. He has a resilient armbar. Makabu won't maintain the deed.

Last minute change of heart for my main event pick

Even tho I still think Mchunu likely outboxes Makabu I remembered Makabu is a Don King fighter on a Don King show and with the added possibility of a Canelo fight there is no way in hell Makabu loses a decision!!!!
Since Mchunu isn't a massive puncher I doubt he gets the KO win he will need so change my pick to Makabu by Don King!

**** ! Sorry bud.

My point was really just about the Tapology pick percentage changing so drastically.

Hefney went from significant Tap favourite to underdog.  Scott is an easier opponent, it's just that Hefney isn't great and is going to get KO'd by either of them!

Hey, maybe Hefney wins!  Scott isn't exactly a world beater!  He has 6 fights, all in tiny halls in Alabama/Georgia etc. against terrible opponents.  He's also 280lbs at only 5'9"!!  So he's not exactly in shape!!!

In future I wouldn't change your pick based on what I pick in my prediction comments.  I don't lock in my picks until an hour or 2 before events start.  If you ever do want advice or some extra info then ask me direct bud
