The Barbershop- Aug. 2, 2011

Happy Tuesday, fans!
Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Barbershop,” a column designed to give you a forum to speak your mind about our question(s) of the week or any boxing-related issue that you would like to comment on. We welcome and appreciate your participation, so take a minute, scroll down and leave your comment below.

Now on to today’s question:
Junior middleweight titleholder Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will be defending his title against Alfredo Gomez on September 17th and there are rumors swirling that middleweight titlist Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will be facing Peter Manfredo Jr. on the 24th. What makes these match-ups interesting is that both Gomez and Manfredo are “The Contender” alumni and the fighters that came off that show haven’t fared exceptionally as they have moved forward.
So, how do you see these two match-ups playing out?
You pay the bills, fans, so what do YOU think?
Don’t forget, fans, you can join the fun on Friday nights as I join Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney on their “Friday Night at the Fights” satellite radio show on Sirius channel 92 and XM channel 207.
We’ll be discussing these items and whatever else is on your mind in the sport of boxing.
The show runs from 7 PM to 9 PM EST and you can call in and let us know what you think by dialing 1-866-522-2846.
We look forward to hearing from you!
