Roy Jones Jr. Canelo ‘Still The Biggest Ticket In Boxing’ … Outside Of Heavyweights
5/10/2022 12:10 AM PT
Roy Jones Jr. tells TMZ Sports he doesn’t believe Canelo Alvarez‘s loss to Dmitry Bivol will affect his star power one bit … saying the guy is “still the biggest ticket in boxing” outside of the heavyweights.
Canelo suffered just his second-ever loss on Saturday night after moving up in weight to fight Bivol … dropping the contest via a unanimous decision.
Some believe the L could hurt Canelo going forward … but, when we spoke to Jones Jr. about the result on Monday, he said he doesn’t expect it to impact the 31-year-old at all.
Can’t stop thinking about Bivol’s performance, absolute genius of a fighter🧠 Winning nearly every round, he controlled, frustrated and hurt Canelo. When was the last time someone did that to a P4P KING, making them look ordinary? Incredible 👏🏼 #boxing #CaneloBivol pic.twitter.com/whVBLUGQfu
In fact, Jones Jr. said the 57-2-1 fighter’s elite legacy is still in-tact … and no matter who he fights next, his name will still draw plenty of eyeballs.
“[He’s] the biggest ticket in boxing outside of the heavyweight division right now,” Jones Jr. said.
Jones Jr.’s advice for Canelo now is simple — fight Gennady Golovkin for a third time, and then go from there.
“Fight Triple G first because that’s one that people will pay big money to see,” Jones Jr. said. “It’s one that’ll generate interest and you could do it as a middleweight.”
No word yet on what Canelo’s plans are next … but when we spoke to Bivol on Monday, the boxer sure seemed like he wasn’t in any race to give a rematch to Canelo.
Bivol told us his goal by fighting Canelo was to gain notoriety … and then pursue more belts elsewhere.
Bivol, though, did give Canelo credit … and praised him still as “the biggest name in boxing.”
Here’s Proof That Drake’s 4-Year-Old Son Adonis Is a Future LeBron James
See Drake’s Son’s Cute Reaction to LeBron James Playing Ball
Ready for the big leagues.
On May 18, the “Hotline Bling” singer posted an adorable video on Instagram of the 4-year-old showing off his skills on the basketball court inside his Toronto mansion. In the clip, Adonis rocks LeBron James‘ No. 23 Los Angeles Lakers jersey as he runs a number of drills.
But Adonis doesn’t just look the part. After shooting a basket, he patted his chest a couple of times, just like LeBron has famously done throughout his career. The tot also tugged on his jersey at the shoulders throughout the video, another idiosyncrasy of the four-time NBA champion.
Drake, 35, captioned the video, “Where is he getting the mannerisms from,” before tagged LeBron and adding a laughing emoji.
The athlete reposted the video on his Instagram Story with the caption, “My nephew really love the game!!”
Adonis has been a LeBron fan for quite some time now. Last summer, Drake shared a hilarious clip of Adonis watching some of LeBron’s career highlights on his Instagram Sorry. In the video, Adonis appears totally in awe of the legendary baller, keeping his eyes glued to the screen and dropping his jaw before letting out an enthusiastic “Oh my dod!” at the end. His dad is heard chuckling at his son’s cute reaction in the background.
LeBron again commended his “nephew” in the comments, adding, “[locked] the hell in!! Yessir!!”

Stranger Things Cast Warns That Season 4 Is Too “Disturbing” for Young Viewers: Everything We Know
Stranger Things Season 4: “Kids Will Have Nightmares”
It sounds like the Upside Down was the least of our worries.
In anticipation of the Stranger Things season four premiere on May 27, the stars of the Netflix sci-fi hit told E! News that viewers—especially young ones!—have no idea what awaits them.
“I thought they’d have to tone it down,” Joseph Quinn, who plays Eddie, told E! News. “I didn’t think they would commit to how gruesome it was on the page. But clearly they don’t care about young kids at all.”
Won’t they think of the children?! Or, you know, adults who get easily scared?!
“Kids will be scared. Kids will have nightmares,” Joe Keery, who plays Steve, agreed. “If I was a kid and I watching this, it would be disturbing.”
Alright, now we’re just terrified. And we thought finding Barb’s body in season was scary!
Caleb McLaughlin, who has been around since the beginning as Lucas, echoed the sentiment. “When I watched this season, I was like ‘Wow, I don’t think I would want my nephew to watch this,'” Caleb said. “It’s very gory. It’s a lot. It’s really intense. We really took it up a notch.”
We’re happy to hear that Caleb is a stand-up uncle, but it’s not calming our nerves!
Charlie Heaton, who plays Jonathan, told us that he’s ready for parents to complain that “my kids couldn’t sleep for weeks” after watching season four.
When it comes to specifics about what exactly makes the season so frightening, Maya Hawke, who plays Robin, said “the bone breaking is really not my favorite thing to watch.”
We need to sit down.
The first episodes of Stranger Things season four arrive on Netflix May 27, with the final episodes of the season dropping on July 1.

One Life to Live Actress Marnie Schulenburg Dead at 37 After Cancer Battle
In Memoriam: Fallen Stars of 2022
Marnie Schulenburg has died after a two-year battle with stage four metastatic breast cancer.
The soap opera actress—known for her roles as Jo Sullivan in the One Life to Live reboot and Alison Stewart in As the World Turns—passed away on May 17 at age 37, her rep Kyle Luker confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
She’s survived by her husband Zack Robidas—who acts in Succession and Sorry for Your Loss—and their 2-year-old daughter Coda. Marnie was diagnosed with cancer five moths after giving birth to Coda in December 2019, according to THR.
The late actress last posted to Instagram on Mother’s Day, sharing that she was able to celebrate the holiday at home after being released from the hospital on May 6. The post showed Marnie playing in the park with her daughter and mother by her side, as well as a photo of herself reading to Coda in bed.
“It’s not my ideal to be a 38 year old Mom who needs an oxygen tank to survive right now,” wrote Marnie, who would have turned 38 on May 21. “I want to be strong and beautiful for her. I want to show her how to move throughout this world with compassion, strength, vivacity, humor and joy like my Mother showed me.”
She explained that while she was in the middle of a two-year battle with cancer, she was realized the “best thing you can do for you child is make them feel loved, safe and supported like my mother did for me.”

“I know that me being here for her is the best gift I can give her but right now it feels like settling since she’s getting a half-life version of myself,” Marnie continued. “My mother showed up 100% all day everyday for me growing up or at least it seemed that way. I want to give Coda the same but I must be kind to myself and remember that nothing is permanent.”
Before her tragic death, the former gymnast also held roles on Elementary, Tainted Dreams, City on a Hill, Royal Pains and Blue Bloods. In addition to an actor and mother, she described herself as the “partner to best the man ever” and the “owner of evil cat.”
