    If he does fight again, this will be exactly six years after his loss to Cotto.

    “Champion, your knees are not responding,”

    "Your knees are not working, champion. They are not working."

    “Sergio, look at me … I’m gonna stop this one. Sergio, you are the best for me. You’ll always be the best champion, Sergio.”

    Eubank Jr just sent a contract, hopes to get another big name on his resume.
    Canelo is considering the challenge too.

    He's 44 with knees of a 95 year old.

    Hopefully he's had stem cell therapy or something, because this sounds like a terrible idea.

    Old and shot... Clenelo must have made him an offer.

    Haven't we been hearing the same thing over and over again this past few years? They were even talking about him coming back for a rematch against Chavez Jr and that never happened. I'll believe it when it actually does happen.
    He must be desperate for the money. His style does not bode well for someone his age, especially that requires 2 good legs.

    Can't really critisize Canelo's resume. Aside from Manny, Canelo has the best resume out there.

    I hope its something like what Freitas did.

    Come back, fight a few journeymen and ride off into the sunset.

    Its such a shame GGG-Martinez wasn't made around 2012-2013

    I really hope not, unless his knees have miraculously healed it's a terrible idea.

    I always got the impression Sergio was the type to manage his money a bit better than that so be a shame if tha's what forced him back into the ring.

    Also I am a big Sergio fan but seriously I think in his prime I wouldn't have written him off against Canelo, though he would have to KO him twice to win a decision.

    I really hope he doesn't return, because I just can't see how it ends well at this stage. One of my favourite fighters back in the day - and someone who actually successfully pulled off the hands down style (take note Josh Kelly). Is it for money? I thought he became a promoter and was doing TV work recently.

    I hate to see this. The guy must really need money badly.
