The Madison Square Garden presser for Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin opens with a short documentary called, I Am Boxing. The (over the top) doc attempts to contextualize this fight as the latest in a tradition of great middleweight fights starting with Sugar Ray Robinson and Jake LaMotta's 6 bout epic from 1942-51 and moving to the era of the 4 Kings, when Roberto Duran, Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, and Thomas Hearns fought each other 9 times in the 1980s. Ice Cube makes a cameo .

If secondary bantamweight titlist Jamie McDonnell (29-2-1, 13 KOs), 31, of England, and former junior bantamweight titlist Liborio Solis (25-5-1, 11 KOs), 35, of Venezuela, can't make a deal for their mandated rematch the WBA will hold a purse bid on July 3 at the sanctioning body headquarters in Panama City, Panama, the organization said on Tuesday. The minimum bid is $120,000 and the split of the winning purse bid would be 75 percent for McDonnell and 25 percent for Solis. They met on Nov. 12 in Monte Carlo and McDonnell retained his belt for the fifth time, winning a unanimous decision by scores of 117-111, 116-112 and 115-113 in a very spirited fight. However, it was viewed by many as a very controversial result and Solis appealed to the WBA, which ordered a rematch. Neither fighter has fought since the November bout.

Lightweight world champion Jorge Linares (42-3, 27 KOs), who has beaten British opponents in three of his last four fights, likely will face another in his next bout. A source with knowledge of the plans told ESPN on Tuesday that Linares is penciled in to headline an HBO card on Sept. 23 and that he will probably face England's Luke Campbell (17-1, 14 KOs), his mandatory challenger. Campbell earned the mandatory position on April 29 on the Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko undercard with a ninth-round knockout of former titlist Darleys Perez in a title elimination bout. Linares has feasted on Brits. He has beaten Anthony Crolla in his past two fights and also knocked out Kevin Mitchell in 2015.
