Boxing Challenge-Canelo wipes out Khan-Is GGG next?

For five round Amir Khan appeared to be using his speed and jab to keep himself in a fight with a much bigger man.
The problem was the fight was scheduled for 12  and when Canelo Alvarez crashed home one booming right hand against Khan-the knockout of the year followed and the evening was concluded with a sixth round KO that allowed Alvarez to retain his WBC middleweight title.
The bigger question is will Alvarez fight the fearsome Gennady Golovkin in his next fight?
Look for that discussion on next week's podcast.
I picked up three points (win,method and bonus point for round) in the Alvarez win and R.L,Malpica added two.

On the undercard,Ramon and I would each add three points in different ways.
Both of us would receive two points for David Lemieux's 4th round KO of Glen Tapia,but one point in different ways as I picked up one in Curtis Stevens knockout of Patrick Teixeira and Ramon added one for Frankie Gomez's decision win over Mauricio Herrera.

In Europe,both of us added two points for wins by Anthony Crolla (knockout winner over Ismael Barroso) and Kubrat Pulev (split decision victor over Derreck Chisora).

For the weekend,I finished with eight points and Ramon finishing with seven to move the season total in my favor to 55-45....
