Canelo Alvarez and Triple G
Perhaps the biggest Latino star in boxing Canelo Alvarez continued his dance with Gennady Golovkin. Rather than fight the Kazakhstan star he faced and easily defeated lesser opponents in the form of Amir Kahn and Liam Smith. 2017 appears more promising as his promoter Golden Boy Promotions have been in discussions for a Cinco De Mayo bout with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to be followed by a GGG match in September 2017. Let’s hope they both happen.

The World Meets Nate Diaz
In the octagon things were a bit more dramatic. Earlier in the year, Conor McGregor was served his come-uppings when he faced Nate Diaz. Diaz did what no other man has been able to do thus far – stop McGregor. However, the victory would be short lived as later in the year at UFC 205 McGregor obtained his revenge with a close decision over Diaz in a rematch. The two put on what some are calling fight of the year candidates. Can a rubber match be far off? We hope not.
