Please submit your questions to:


Our first question comes from Tony T. who asks:


Gerry, I saw a picture of Canelo Alvarez and Julio Chavez Jr. standing side by side, and to me, Chavez looks a lot bigger than Alvarez. Word is that Chavez plans on entering the ring at about 180 lbs. Doesn’t that give him a huge advantage?


Our next question comes from Jimmy D. who asks:


Gerry, although Mayweather denies it, rumors persist that he will eventually be fighting Connor McGregor. Do you have the inside scoop on this?
