    I say this with every last fiber of my being: there are not enough words in any Romantic, Germanic, Hellenic, Celtic, Slavic, Uralic, African, Sino-Tibetan, Japonic, and all the various Native American tongues both extinct and still spoken to express the absolute level of contemptuous disgust I hold the Super Middleweight division in; never before has boxing assembled a more spineless, gutless, lazy, cowardly, and all-around worthless pack of belt-hunting bums, all climaxing in the Ginger Sweepstakes.

    Benavidez is the one person there worth half-a-damn, the one person who might actually have a chance against Canelo, so of course, we won't get it, unless Makabu knocks Canelo back down to SMW (I'm not holding my breath).

    Pretty much every division is lackluster now. Lacking big fights.
