I won’t say that All Access has supplanted 24/7 as the best hype show out there, but they’re finding their sweet spot. I thought the end of the Mayweather/Canelo series was good and the first episode of Canelo vs. Angulo was excellent.
It’s an interesting story to paint because both Canelo and Angulo are coming off losses. For Angulo, they showed a side of him that most of us don’t know about and he came across as a tremendous sympathetic figure. Canelo is a star, but he’s a star who needs to prove himself. In a sense, the fight with Angulo is perfect because unlike Mayweather, Angulo is going to stand right in front of him and bang. But also, he’s going to be one of the hardest hitters Canelo has ever faced. Will Canelo be able to stay in there and put Angulo away?
The fun subplot is the wacky crew that Virgil Hunter has put together. It’s a bizarro Four Horsemen. He has Andre Berto, Amir Khan, Angulo, and the champ Andre Ward in his stable and they all seem to enjoy each other.
