Canelo Alvarez and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, have become remarkably adroit at stacking barriers in the road to a long-awaited superfight with Gennady Golovkin -- the latest being the  claim (based on somewhat-valid evidence: only 177,000 recent PPV buys for the Jacobs fight) that the public doesn't care much about Golovkin.

On the other hand, most observers of the Sweet Science seem to agree that no fight seems as mouthwatering right now as Canelo-GGG ... so what's the deal? Our expert analysts discuss the possibility that De La Hoya and Canelo are waiting for Golovkin to age a bit more -- maybe until his flesh is decomposing -- before risking Golden Boy's meal ticket in a fight Golovkin would be favored to win.

We also talk about Canelo's more-immediate concern -- the upcoming clash with an unusually motivated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. -- plus the youth-versus-experience showdown between Joshua and Klitschko, and, finally, who deserves to be No. 1 on the Pound 4 Pound list.

This rousing discussion sets the stage for our memorable and revealing conversation with Dicky Eklund (Micky Ward's brother and co-inspiration for "The Fighter.")

Lateef Kayode began boxing in his native Nigeria, then migrated to the United States, where he connected with four-time "Trainer of the Year" Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood. After battling Antonio Tarver to a 12-round draw on Showtime, Kayode is 18-0-1, with 15 KOs, and has plans to fight for a world title soon.

This was one of the most colorful and animated (if difficult to decipher) conversations we've had on The Ringside Boxing Show in a long time.  Enjoy this interview with a very unique personality.
