Rosado was KO’d in two v. Angulo and just picked-up his 7th loss v. Love. he’s currently ranked at nowhere. Garcia re-exposed Khan, defeated a ringworn featherweight, and went the distance v. Judah who was bumrushed out of welter 5 years ago v. Clottey. until Garcia defeats a Thurman, Mathysse, or even Josesito, he remains a prospect but not dominant champion. meanwhile, Canelo, Mares, Garcia, and Santa Cruz are all champions who are already dominating their competition as they continue to ascend through the ranks . . . “Cannn-Tahhh y no Llores” . . .

SRed – Like I said, I don’t like guys that weigh in at 2 or 3 divisions heavier than what they are fighting at on fight night either. Caneld fights at super welter, but weighs in at LHW. It’s just crazy. But there isn’t a thing that can be done about it. I’ve never heard of anyone having a rehydration stipulation in their contract. If FM can get it, then why not. My point is that everyone is going to cry dehydration if FM spanks Canelo. At the end of the day, we all want to see this fight. And you’re right, Canelo has nothing to stand on when making demands. He’s a young, talented champion, but he is not big player in boxing.

Who dafk is Canelo? What on earth has he done in the ring making him feel he can make demands?? He’s only a star to the desperate Mexicans who are on a decade long drought producing any top reigning Boxing Champion.. he’s thier last hope.. Once he’s flushed down the toilet like Chavez Jr. and MargaCheato their drought will continue…

fighters that rehydrate too much are not well conditioned fighters and have to limit their output for fear of gassing out, a well conditioned fighter can box circles around them, the only time this method is effective is if the opponent is not a real threat anyway

Exiled Yank, without saying it you are saying that Floyd should make ALL the concessions ie Canelo being 14 years his JR and 22 pounds heavier the night of the fight…Somewhere along the line Canelo might have to make a concession because Alvarez needs this fight about 100 times more than Mayweather who is earning more per bout than Canelo likely will in his entire career…We all know Alvarez is not gonna make 147, he barely is making 154 which is obvious because he was 172 for his last fight at 154…The reality is guys want to somehow handicap FMJ who is obviously the more talented boxer…. I think this bout will likely happen because there are not too many names around that will generate the interest but Alvarez career has been built on the backs of smaller fighters at 154 and now we KNOW just how small those guys were…. Face it he might have to come to the ring at 165 which still gives him 15 pounds on Floyd…. If he is the real McCoy that should be sufficient to win along with him being 14 years younger….Time will tell

I’ve never heard a single Canelo fan say FM should bulk up to 170. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve read yet. As for Canelo’s rehydration clause… I can see FM going for this, but I don’t agree with it. I hate seeing fighters gain 20 plus pounds from weigh in to the opening bell, but if they make the weight, then it’s fair game. Also, I don’t see how Canelo can make 147, it has to be hard for him to make 154 at this point. Personally, I would rather see FM take the fight at 154 and take Canelo’s championship. Canelo is the true 154 champ, so if FM beats him, then he reigns supreme in two divisions. That’s pretty uncommon. Also, Canel showed some real skill and grit against Trout and I think he can give FM some problems. Canelo throws fantastic, accurate combos and his defense is surprisingly solid. Trout is no Mayweather though, so it will be a totally different fight. I take FM in it, with some close rounds. I think this is the best fight for FM and Canelo both. I hope it happens. Since DLH is involved, I have to think it’s a strong possibility. It all comes down to the contract details.

Prevent the Mexican from using his Weight Gain Trick and he loses.. simple as that.. Keep Canelo from coming into a 154lb fight weighing 172+lbs and he gets KTFO.. all Mayweather has to demand is same day weighin or Weight gain limits.. no need to go to 147lbs.. You also need random Blood testing, remember he’s a Mexican and they’re all on illegal sht…

NO one in Floyd’s range can beat him but he has to face somebody because he has 5 Fights left on his contract. The Biggest Fights left are Canelo, Martinez, Pacquiao, Garcia, and Broner. Broner is like his little brother SO the next guy on the list is going to be Matthysse after he stops Peterson.

Sure do Fighting Words…. Your numbers are small potatoes.. All those PPV numbers have been long since eclipsed by Floyd when he won De La Hoya’s 154-pound title… Obviously a new record will be set when Floyd beats Canelo.

None of those Heavyweight Fights you’re talking about are even the Heavyweight Record.. That was set by Lewis when he KO’d Tyson.. The biggest numbers in European History? Klitschko vs Haye. For non-heavyweight it was Calzaghe vs Kessler.

The Ghost you’re full of it, Pacquaio is one of my favorite boxers but he tried to put weight restrictions on how many fighters? He didn’t even fight Cotto at a full 147… So pretending he would get in the ring with Canelo at 154 is BS and to be fair Manny Pacquiao should never be in a ring with a guy who’s 172 that’s a circus.. The cats out of the bag, for all intensive purposes Canelo has been hiding at 154, he’s really a MW at best… I have no idea how this turns out and I would bank on FMJ no matter what, but spotting a guy 14 years and 22 pounds is extreme… When has Floyd EVER had anything close to those advantages fight night?? Never…. Floyd will just box him senseless no matter what..

Juan Manuel Marquez is a fine fighter. However he lacks a bit in the good swordsmanship department. Even afyer his career defining win over Manny, he STILL GRIPES incessantly about the proir three. Manny Pacquiao has been a class act since the loss. Congratulating Mr.Marquez publicly. Praising Marquez
Boxing abilities. There is grace in losing. Marquez would be well served to show class in winning.

Actually, Mayweather also had problems in his fights with Castillo because the latter kept landing far more more power punches (with Castillo landing 173 to Mayweather’s 66 in their first fight, for example), so there also needs to be a strict clause limiting the number of power punches Canelo lands too.

Bottom line canelo /Mayweather is a promoters dream. A fight thatSHOULD AND COULD BE MADE. Personally I dont see why weight should be an issue that prevents this from happening. Canelo has stated he is willing to go to 151. Mayweather when you cut through all of the weeds, has BOTTOM line fought at that weight. Time to put up or SHUT UP. PERIOD. You cant keep expecting people to.put with insane pay per view prices for a flawed product. A SCRIPTED PRODUCT. ITS INSULTING TO MAYWEATHERS FANS and to boxing fans as a whole. This young man canelo has made it clear. No double talk, no spin on words. Mr. Mayweather needs to show those outside of his fanbase , that he is willing to indeed fight the best and no more wriggling around the issue. ,WILLINGNESS TO TAKE RISKS IS WHAT DEFINES A CHAMPION. Muhammad ali 5 losses but generally regarded as the premiere heavyweight champion of the last century. Roberto duran seven losses in a i believe approximately 98 fight career. The best lightweight to ever lace on a pair of gloves according to most trainers and historians. Something to consider.

Floyd should stay at 147. There is still plenty of solid fights there. Canelo is too big and can easily make Middleweight if he wanted to. However, if Floyd does fight and beat Canelo at 154, watch as the haters demanding the fight will come up with all kinds of excuses why Canelo is a bum and was cherrypicked by Floyd for an easy win.

Smith shouldn’t do the negotiating for Canelo’s team.. Canelo might agree to a 165 rehydration limit at the very least.. And why wouldn’t Floyd agree? Cotto weighed 165 into the ring and Floyd won a clear, decisive, unanimous decision over him.. Cotto wasn’t damaged goods.. He was a world Champion and whipped an undefeated fighter to get there.. When Cotto rematched Cheato, He won every round, socked Cheato’s eye shut, and stopped hm.. Cotto was good to go.. Cotto was a great win for Floyd.

Let’s not throw monkey wrenches into Floyd-Canelo… Let’s get it done.

Is the author going to say that Canelo had a weight advantage over Austin Trout, too? Yes, Canelo did but it was just one pound. If Mayweather fought in 2012 at 154 and has a belt there, why can’t he fight Canelo at 154? Simply because that zero could go and Canelo is a legitimate threat. Cotto was old, tired, and slow and Mayweather knew it.

Jay you are correct when you say cotto wasnt the same after the Margarito disaster. Miguel is a class act and a true sportsman. A proud and valient fighter. Its a DISGRACE that Margarito wasn’t PERMANENTLY BANNED from boxing as he should have been. Boxing isn’t golf or tennis. Tjese men are literally putting their lives on the line when they step in the squared circle. All it takes is one well timed well placed shot. And tragedy could be around the corner. Quite frankly Margarito should have been arrested.

Jajajaj… I scanned this article, ajja.. great article. “Canelo has to be kept at around 160 for the fight to be a possibility. That would still give Canelo a comfortable 10 pound weight advantage over Mayweather, and if that’s not enough of an advantage for Canelo then he needs to forget about fighting him and focus on having other welterweights come up to 154 to fight him.”

Cotto is actually a larger framed fighter than Mayweather, which was the only reason he’s fighting at 154 in the first place. Cotto was never a natural 154 pound fighter. Delahoya wasn’t a natural 154 pound fighter either, but he grew into the weight class well becuase of his height.

Posted May 12, 2013 6:36 pm 


Tomato Can

If Mayweather had more height and reach or a larger body frame, he would be fighting at 154 or above. The fact is he’s a small fighter, and is peaked out at 147. There are some good fighters out there for Mayweather at 140/147 who won’t enter the ring weight drained or to heavy for their frames. The majority of 140 pound fighters are actually naturally bigger than Mayweather anyway. On the same token it isn’t like there aren’t any good fights for Canelo at or above 154. Lara, Molina, and Vanes are all worthy challangers, and Trout is very deserving of another Canelo fight…. But hey, since the little guy is so good lets see him fight out weighed and out gunned.

Mayweather fought Cotto at 154 REMEMBER for it wasn’t to long ago, this will only confirm that it wasn’t the weght that the CHERRYPICKER pick on Cotto but becaused Cotto is a HANDYCAP/50% fighter thanks to Magarito and Manny.

That would be an interesting fight because trout is tall and rangy with good handspeed and a pretty effective jab. Plus he has confidence in himself. Cotto even in his watered down state made it interest for a bit when he utilized his jab. Trout has better balance than cotto and better footwork overall. He also isnt hesitant to let his hands go when necessary. That would be interesting.

I’m sure you’ll also go on to say that Delahoya fought Mayweather at his comfortable weight, with his choice of ring and glove size, correct? Since we’re being honest, you’ll also go on to say that when Mayweather fought Mosely, he was coming off one his best performances after Koing Margarito. Come one man….

The people that keep saying Mayweather has fought at 154 pounds a number of times (twice) are correct. But really he fought blown up Jr.WW’s like himself, although they were both bigger, at Jr.MW. Canelo is very much a natural Jr.MW, who’s probably growing out of the division as we speak. This fight may take place, but I doubt it will without some type of stipulation. Therefore, this fight will prove little.

Most of this article is just the opinion of the author. Mayweather has not said one thing about the weight. I believe the fight should be at 154, no catch weight like a Manny fight. Fight the guys at the intended weight. If Mayweather wants to play with the big boys, then he plays by the big boy rules. That being said, Canelo can come in 30 pounds heavier than Floyd and he still gets beat down and given a boxing lesson.

Mayweather is a champ @ 154 and has fought at that weight a # of times. Canelo is a 154 champ and the most marketable fight Floyd can make. Make the fight at 154 with no stipulations about weight. Floyd’s skill set will propel him to victory. No need to taint it.

Mayweathet has fought at 154 before but only against fighters he knew he could beat that’s the point he won’t fight people who can beat him regardless of what weight.

Posted May 12, 2013 4:29 pm

Mayweather is peaked out at 147. He injures his hands against 147 pound fighters. He can compete at 154 but really he’s barely a 147 pound fighter. So him fighting at 154 pretty much gives everyone he faces size streangth and power advantages. If he fought Canelo, and eeked out a win, then fans will be wanting him to fight the other 154 pounders, and 160 pounders, like some fools are already demanding. Mayweather is good, but he’s not physical enough to dent the bigger fighters which will end up breaking him down. Hagler fought at 160 his whole career, and made his name on fighting all comers at that weight. But his biggest fights were against lower weight fighters who came up to fight him. Mayweather should take note, and stay put at 147. If Canelo wants to fight him at 147, so be it.

Unless, you’re interested in seeing how Mayweahter handles a huge size advantage, or you want to see how Canelo handles being weight drained… With Hydration clauses and weight limits already being talked about, the winner of such a fight wouldn’t get much credit for it.

Otra cosa tu eres el nuevo nombre en box no dejes que te empujen con demandas de peso, y de aquello, etc. Pelea 154 lbs y nada menos. Si a ese buey le pagan 32 millones pues tu eres el campopn te tienen que pagar por lo menos lo mismo.

Canelo cuando en la pelea contra Mayweather , inteligente con defensa pero tienes que hacer mas agresivo, cuando lo tienes danado tienes que poner mas presion y tirar golpes. El K.O. viene pero con inteligencia y agresividad. Eres mas fuerte, mas joven y mucha mas hambre tienes. Tu peleas para el orgullo de Mexico el pelea para el dinero y su cochino “0” mentiroso en su record.

Canelo should get no more than a two pound allowance from 154. Yes, Canelo must weigh no more than 156 for the fight for it to be fair to Mayweather.
