The Trainer Ann Wolfe told TMZ that her ex-fighter, James Kirkland shouldn’t have taken such a big fight with Mexico’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez after his 17-month hiatus.
Kirkland’s lengthy layoff was one of his many, but his biggest mistake, in the loss this past Saturday against Canelo.
Ann Wolfe said, “He would have needed to have a least 3 ‘warm up fights’ before stepping in the ring with Alvarez.”
Wolfe claimed in an interview that there is no “Bad Blood” between her and Kirkland even though they did not speak after the fight. Wolfe extended a courtesy phone call to Kirkland’s mom to check on her former fighter.
Although Wolfe doesn’t know the “why” regarding why she wasn’t Kirkland’s trainer for this fight, she did say that “He will have to live with his decision.”
Yes he will, especially considering he got knocked the F*** out!
