Rumorville: Canelo vs Margarito



Rumorville: Canelo vs Margarito

By Michael Woods

The joint is always jumping in Rumorville.

Here's one for ya…

If Tony Margarito looks decent in his comeback fight against Jorge Paez the Younger tomorrow then the Mexican could be fighting Canelo Alvarez next, if Canelo doesn't fight Gennady Golovkin after taking on Amir Khan May 7.

Yay or nay, I asked Golden Boy exec Eric Gomez.

“No, no discussions at all,” Gomez informed me.

So, note that for the record. Rumorville, for now, is chill.
