canelo by decision

mr. quigley

the one and only reason that mayweather is fighting canelo is to have a mexican opponenet to fight on a mexican holiday. that is how his ppv numbers appear to make him look popular. he only fights twice a year, cinco de mayo and mexican independance day, and only with mexican fighters on the card.

PEEJ Tell me what kind of dance did TROUT do in the 7th round. Look like an OLD Micheal Jackson step. Sorry Micheal pass awy a few years back. cant possibly be one of Jacksons moves,well what ever kind of shuffle he did it was cool watching it on replay. ha ha ha ha ha… trout hits like a girl NO POWER, trout could NOT throw Canelo around like a RAG DOLL like he did to Cotto.. YOUNG BABY BULL cant be stop. Viva Canelo

BOXTRADAMOS You the man You the Man. When CANELO Knocks out Cherry Picker, Remember cherry picker is getting OLD now, cant RUN like he use to Legs arent the same anymore. YOU will REALLY be the MOST hated man on the planet then. I hope you are RIGHT. If you are you are the PROPHET of the winners. You DO see things other people miss INCLUDING myself. the Nut licker cherry believers are WORRIED now, this is NOT a hand pick fight for Cherry Picker fans. This is NO walk in the park for Cherry picker.. It will be a CLOSE fight (unless canelo knocks him out with a DEVASTATING BLOW) Cherry Picker fans are concern,there is DOUBT in the AIR.

ROCCO Its Cherry picker thats needs CANELO. Why People have woken up to CHERRY PICKERAS hand chosen fights. OLD farts like Cotto on Delahoya gave cherry picker a hard time before they TIRED out. (Cherry picker dont fight guys in their PRIME eg. PACMAN) The REAL money Canelo VS GGG… Ward avoids him like the PLAUGE. Canelo will FIGHT him GGG and LOSE to GGG) No body can say Canelo AVOIDED any one like Cherry picker has.

little tiger

most fighters who faced floyd went in with the wrong game plan!! and the ones that did got lured out of it by floyd… example is de la hoya… others like cotto just tired out ,cotto had the right plan by pressuring with good combinations but could not sustain it through the last rounds… floyds defense did not look to good he was exposed and canelo will take advantage by applying pressure through out the fight.. his bodypuches will slow floyd down,and contrary to what some believe canelo knows how to close the ring(trout said he was going to use the ring with alot of lateral movement? but what happened?) canelo will be ready with the right game plan, it wont be easy but the plan will trump over age.

little tiger

canelo is ready!! mayweather is a sly fox but is not as great in his defense as percieved its really his running holding and elbowing that makes it seem that way. granted he is a great fighter to an extent because he can lure fighters into his fight…. but remember canelo is not going to fall for it because canelo also is a very smart and able fighter and will be ready with his own plan… experience plays a role but is not the whole enchilada… canelo did not tire in his last fight he prolonged the fight to get all the experience he could from it…he was preparing himself for this fight and ending the fight early would have not helped him… former fighters should understand this stradegy!!

Q-Vo EZ. Guerrero was a case of “now or Never” and, for better or worse, he earned the shot v. opponents that Mayweather would’ve also dominated, and that’s-that. i also think that it’s not only safe but smart to say that this version of Canelo can only defeat an older, slower, and faded Floyd. Mayweather is that good. of course, that is the the traditional hope of every young lion v. a 35+ fighter: that they “get old, overnight” and they prepare to trigger or nudge that process along. that is the primary intrigue of this matchup. can this 22-year-old match the speed, reflexes, and stamina of a smaller 36-year-old opponent to bust-up Mayweather? i favor Mayweather but i’m gonna wait before i share a final prediction. Orale EZ E. at some point this weekened, i’m gonna cue-up some Fania All-Stars: Live at the Red Garter in your honor, homie . . . Paz.

Posted June 1, 2013 11:12 am 


I could be wrong but Canelo is not ready for this fight. BUT !!! Canelo knows that : A) He’ll make more money in this one fight than in 5 “non Mayweather” opponent fights combined. B) Even if he loses it’ll more than likely be by decision and he’s young enough to rebuild his career. C) IF – he does beat Mayweather, every sports fan around the world will know him on a first name basis. D) He won’t lose face if he loses (Mayweather can’t say that). SO nothing for Canelo to lose and A LOT for Canelo to gain. Besides, when you’ve been working VERY hard and sacrificing so much during the prime years of your life (as Canelo has been) you want to get the most financial reward you can for all that while you can. Let’s not forget, athletic managers know anything can happen tomorrow (an injury for you or your opponent, death, etc.) Peace

TUMBO Your views and points are well taken. yes, although Canelo defeated Trout they are basically on the same level. Yes, it’s the biggest $$ fight for ALL THREE (if we agree to include Oscar, and that we surely should) promoters/fighters. But it’s also the fight most fight fans (both hard core and casual fans) want to see. When I consider Canelo’s fan base alone, it make$ outrageou$ $en$e and much anticipated encounter, to say the least. The Floyd vs Manny fight has lost most of it’s appeal. Floyd’s haters/detractors are desperately praying for their “David” to slay “Goliath”. Who’s out there? The list is pretty short. Is it fair to expect Floyd to invade the Middle (160Lb) division?? No, Floyd won’t stay at 154Lbs, you’re correct. He himself says that the curtain is coming down on the Money Show. There’s plenty of MILLIONS waiting for him in the UK if he decides to face a loser (Khan). Why folks continue to clamor a Floyd vs “vicious” Vic is waaayyy beyond me. If Bradley gets by Marquez he might get a call but WHO really wants to see it compared to Canelo?? Martinez is showing his age and won’t be an elite too much longer in my humble estimation. I don’t see Floyd challenging GGG either. I still believe that Floyd wants to get Canelo out of the way before either Alvarez loses or simply continues to get better. Paz y respeto Carnal!!

Q-Vole EZ E, i’ve been opposed to Mayweather fighting anybody above 147lbs, Period. moreover, Canelo and Mayweather represent different eras in boxing and only Mayweather’s sustained P4P abilities makes this a marketable (if not entirely logical) matchup. the catchweight element only adds to the spectacle of this bout that won’t clarify the rankings in either weight-class. i for one do not underestimate Canelo’s win over Trout. in fact, i’ve gone on record as considering as dominant a win as Mayweather’s over Guerrero, i.e., whether it be offense, defense, or footwork, there isn’t a single category that Canelo didn’t dominate Trout in, which explains Trout’s one-word respone of “Shocked” to describe his encounter v. Canelo. however, i don’t consider Trout any more experienced than Canelo, which makes similar matchups for Canelo more logical than the spectacle of luring Mayweather up to a weight he doesn’t belong in and has no intention of ever dominating. of course, Mayweather has no obligation to “wait” for Canelo to develop, which is fine with me since i feel no urgency for this particular matchup to happen. besides, this is more about Floyd collecting another huge payday than facing a truly comparable opponent, clarifying the rankings, or unifying a division. this is a promoter’s matchup NOT a fight-fan’s matchup . . . Paz y Respeto to EZ E.

Posted May 31, 2013 4:54 pm 


QUESTION: Was Guerrero ready for Floyd?? Don’t most believe that Canelo is a notch or two above Guerrero?? So… why isn’t Canelo ready for Floyd?? Does Canelo have to be a “sure thing” winner to be considered ready?? Does the larger possibility of cCnelo losing mean that he’s not ready or has NO chance whatsoever of winning?? This is boxing and underdogs do pull off upsets. How is Canelo supposed to prove himself as a top elite fighter, fighting Alfonso Lopez or Kermit Cintron?? If he loses in the similar manner that Cotto lost to Floyd mean that Canelo wasn’t ready?? Or is it safe to say that the ONLY way Canelo winis is if Floyd is older, slower and faded?? hmmm… I want to see this one. Canelo might not win but HE’S READY

Posted May 31, 2013 4:07 pm 


You better be ready if you’re 23 years old with 40+ bouts the Ring title and you’re fighting a 36 year old declining man who came into his last bout at 146 and you at 172. Give Floyd his credit please, and let it rest. Canelo is the one with so many things going for him… Floyd just has his ATG skills and such.

Posted May 31, 2013 4:03 pm 


TUMBO!! Orale!! Q-vo Canalito!! Well, what I’m getting at is.. it’s NOW or never. He has to be as ready as he can right NOW! I see your point about the caliber of his opposition but.. so far he’s come through. Let’s not underestimate his win over Trout. It was a great maturing experience, one that will bring out more of what he truly has to offer. How much credit will he get/deserve for beating two yrs older and a step slower Floyd?? At the same time Floyd’s offer is for NOW!! Is Floyd supposed to wait around for Canelo to improve and get bigger. sronger, better?? Floyd is NO fool and knows that the best time to fight Canelo is SOON!! He can’t afford/risk tof allowing this fight to take place another year or two from now. We all Canelo is no “Quitting Billy Goat” Ortiz, not a small Marquez nor a faded Cotto or rather undersized welter Guerrero. He brings more tot he table than just that. So what if the odds aren’t in his favor. He has enough physical advantages to pull it of. Does he need more. History has shown us how other’s have risen to the occasion. Canelo will soon peak out and will not get much better than he is now. He’s ready. Even if Floyd happens to win, it WON’T be a blowout. Canelo presence will be felt in ring that night, all night long. Paz & respecto como siempre Carnalito Tumbo! Perace to all!!

Q-Vo EZ E. if you insist that Canelo is ready to face Floyd you must have no reservations about the top-notch competition he’s faced building-up to this fight(?). Btw, Mayweather’s undefeated record indicates that not a single opponent has ever been ready to face him. not the undefeated Corralles, the undefeated Chicanito, the undefeated Hatton, the ATG Marquez, the crafty and seasoned Guerrero. only a “W” v. Floyd can prove which Mayweather opponent is truly ready. IMO, it’s a premature matchup for Canelo. Mayweather is at a sustained peak while Canelo is still peaking and yet to reach a premium plateau. he now has Floyd to contend with to get there. experience-wise, Canelo can’t possibly be “ready” but he figures to have enough natural advantages to make this matchup interesting and most challenging for Mayweather . . . Peace to EZ E.

Posted May 31, 2013 11:48 am 


ahhhh… Canelo not ready?? Really?? Well then, WHEN will he be?? When Floyd is a couple of years older and a step slower?? Com’on man, let’s make sense. Who’s taking the risk here? Is it the 36 yr old Floyd or… a the young 22 yr old 43 fight experienced strong champion with all the physical advantages in his favor?? Ali (Cassius Clay) was a 22 yr old when he faced the heavily favored feared Liston, Wilfred Benitez was 17yrs old when he defeated a then feared & respected top p4p future HOF champion Cervantes!! Shall I go on?? The examples are endless. How many adavantages does Canelo need before the excuses end?? If Canelo isn’t ready now then it’s safe to say that Canelo NEVER would’ve been remotely ready or able to face the best of Floyd, during his prime years.

Peej- at what point in the canelo vs mosely bout did canelo look as vulnerable and hurt as floyd?

Posted May 31, 2013 3:57 am 


No. Floyd got buzzed and then dominated every minute. Canelo fought him after Floyd an Pac and Mosley said he didn’t hit as hard as them. And no he didn’t almost retire him as he is fighting still. And Mosley was never a good 154 pounder

Posted May 31, 2013 1:40 am

during the weigh in, canelo will be at around 154 lbs, and for that reason floyd will back out.

Actually he is from New York, where his family lives. He moved to New Mexico.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:25 am 


Trout is from New Mexico. And Texas is a Mexican state. I am from Texas. I live in Austin Texas bro, I know. And you can disagree all you want it is the truth. And since you are going with what the showtime crew said then you can agree they said the same thing when Canelo fought Mosley. No way he is ready for Floyd, if he fought Floyd the same way he fought Mosley he will lose. That is what they said.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:24 am 


Trout was from texas dude. Your full of it. If that fight had been anywhere else the results would’ve been thesame. Showtme crew had canelo winning too. And I totally disagree with your canelo comparrisons

Posted May 31, 2013 12:23 am 


Yes it was a problem in the Trout fight. Like I said he can’t fight the full round for 12 rounds. Like I said before I thought Trout won and that was the reason. Trout fought the whole round while Canelo fought about a minute of each round. Even the round he knocked Trout down in, that should of been a 9/9 round because Trout beat him up for the rest of the round when he got up

Posted May 31, 2013 12:22 am 


Mosley was never hurt against Canelo.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:20 am 


Has stamina ever represented a “problem” for canelo in his bouts or played a factor? No it has not. Could it? Maybe. Will it? I don’t think so. We will see the best canelo. He wil rise to the occasion. And on a mexican holiday a mexican will dethrone floyd

Posted May 31, 2013 12:20 am 


And Mosley looked hurt against Floyd also. Yes Floyd got shook and then won the rest of the round. Canelo has been shook by a lesser fighter in Cotto. So what is your point. Floyd dominated Mosley more than Canelo did. That is why people where saying he was not ready for Floyd after the Mosley fight. As a matter of fact you couldn’t find anybody who thought Canelo was ready after he fought Mosley.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:20 am 


The sense of urgency Trout had was because of the open scoring and how they where not scoring any rounds for him even though he should of won a few. If that fight was anywhere else besides SA or Cali, Trout would of had a better chance.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:18 am 


“Floyd looked better against mosley” I disagree. Floyd got hurt badagaint mosely again loking vulnerable as I the motiff when floyd has been in with a decent fighter. Canelo never got hurt and never looked as vulnerable as floyd did at that point. They beat mosely by exactly the same score

Posted May 31, 2013 12:18 am 


And Bears you are not taking in the problem that Canelo clearly has stamina issues. He can’t fight 3 minutes of every round, something Floyd can do.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:17 am 


Yeah Trout was showing class in defeat. If you listen or read any other interview after the fight Trout says he thought he won the fight. But he also says he knows it was close and that it could of gone either way.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:16 am 


That will provoke a sense of urgency much like it did in trout. May will be keeping his hands goin in hopes it keeps canelo off and may will get hit with canelos crisp fast accurate strikes. The reality wll be setting in early with everyone watching. Midway through the fight people will be shocked wondering if canelo wll win or somehow floyd will change the momentum

Posted May 31, 2013 12:16 am 


Funny but Floyd looked way better against Mosley than Canelo did. And Canelo did not look that great against Trout neither. In my book he lost by a round. Now I’ve said many times that it was close and could of gone either way but one of the judges needs to be investigated. Now saying Canelo dominated or looked great against Trout is just incorrect.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:15 am 


Trout said he was shocked, Mosley said he underestimated his speed. Imma go with my boy Canelo.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:15 am 


There shouldn’t be any heavies on the P4P rankings anyway. The P4P rankings where created to give the fighters that are not Heavyweight recognition because if you where the Heavyweight Champ then you where considered the baddest man on the planet. They made the P4P rankings for Sugar Ray Robinson.

Posted May 31, 2013 12:13 am 


Naw,floyds potshotting hit and run won’t work. That will be clear imediately. Floyd will immediately get stung by canelos power. Like trout did and like mosely did to floyd

Posted May 31, 2013 12:12 am 


Its not an excuse its a possibility. Its nothing new to boxingis it? There will be a ton of money on the line too. Hopefully nothing controversial ruins the fight. Even though ortiz isn’t that good. I wouldn’t call floyd vs ortiz a fight. That was garbage. As I said neither ortiz or gueerero had any business on any real p4p ranking. They will never be on any list again and I doubt they made it onto any objective list. Wlad is currently ranked #4!!!! You got floyd, ward, jmm, wlad, pac, mrtinez, donaire broner, vitaly, mares and canelo. Guerrero was beaten by diaz and salido he was never that good to begin with. Ortiz and gueerero just never even should’ve been fighting floyd. There sure as hell never shoulda had a p4p ranking. They have fallen into . obscurity as though it was all part of the plan. Guerer is acting like he wn the lottery. Bahahahhahahaah garbage fights. Those were good for the layman fan that doesn’t know any better

Posted May 31, 2013 12:11 am 


NO he won’t. He’ll LOSE by Pot shotting CLINIC. He brought Floyd Sr. back with Canelo in MIND as I CORRECTLY predicted.

Posted May 30, 2013 11:51 pm 


Canelo’s future is in his own hands. He needs a strenght and conditioning coach. He needs to train like he has never trained before. Making 152 should be easier than 147. This is what Canelo wants, let him have it. I just hope he is serious. He should watch his last fight and know that with the proper conditioning he should of taken Trout outta there. Trout was hurt more than once. He has to put those overtime hours in training to be a threath to Mayweather. Trout is the Past. Mayweather the present…. His future is in his hands now…

“I repeat, if the two pounds doesn’t make a difference or if Floyd is fully confident that he will beat him no matter what, why does he want the fight at a catchweight? I’ll tell you why: Floyd has doubts.”-FALSE. Canelo asked for the catchweight and Floyd ACCEPTED. SO I repeat IF 2 pounds makes such a difference then why DID Canelo ASK for it and ACCEPT it??? I’ll tell you WHY. Because Canelo knows as well as Floyd DOES that weight doesn’t WIN Fights….unless there’s more than a 20 lb difference…. SKILLS DO.

I agree that it is going to be a good fight, however, I think Canelo will tire in the later rounds. Another boring UD win for Mayweather.

Posted May 30, 2013 7:50 pm 


“What Floyd “sees” is a 22 year old kid who wants to come in with a 22 pound advantage ” No, what he sees is that if he allows this kid to come in at his full strength, he’s likely to get hurt and he might even lose the fight. Floyd wants those two pounds as an insurance policy. He thinks he can beat Canelo but he wants to make absolutely sure. Floyd is worried about Canelo’s strength and durability. he’s worried about his power. He knows that unlike Robert Guerrero, Canelo’s going to get to Mayweather a lot more and with more powerful punches. He’s a tough young kid who possesses very fine boxing skills and great ring IQ for his age. So Floyd wants to take a little umph out of him. What better way to do that than at a catchweight. Again, I repeat, if the two pounds doesn’t make a difference or if Floyd is fully confident that he will beat him no matter what, why does he want the fight at a catchweight? I’ll tell you why: Floyd has doubts.

Well I would have to disagree. Well I am not in my late 30’s, I am 33 but I have definitely changed the way I look. He had a trainer and ate right and worked out right. So I see no problem with it. Especially since he passed all the test and offered to take the random test. So just like Pac, I didn’t think he was on anything but he was moving up in weight pretty quick and getting rid of certain people. I just thought he was a monster. And another thing is Pac has taken a lot of punishment in his boxing career. Sooner or later your ching will crack and you will fall.

Frankly I’m not sure Canelo is ready for Floyd. He’s marinated long enough though and has the hand speed and pressure style to be competitive win or lose. Also he handled Trout quite well, showing he can box as well as slug. Good fight, props to both guys for taking it.

This will be a good fight and I really don’t think that the 152lb weight will be a problem. I just read an interview and they stated Canelo calling Floyd out and said he would drop to 150 to fight him. So really Floyd said na that’s cool, come in at 152. And also I read where they don’t think it’s a big deal that Floyd could of fought him at 154 but he wanted to show Canelo that he calls the shots. I can see that too.

Te tumbo u certainly r a very knowledgeable boxing fan so i just cant understand y u go way off with ur post sometimes. I also said that Canelo would be able to outbox Trout in the middle of the ring and Canelo made me look good with how he did just that showing better defense counterpunching and potshoting but damn give Trout some credit he fought a very good fight himself and imo only lost the fight 7-5. Dont get to hype about the win either because Trout like Canelo is unproven against the real top dogs at jmw .

I do believe canelo will be able to go full bore for all rounds. I don’t believe it will be an issue

Will try Posing this Again..

stuck in a moment..”when an american fights outside his hometown against a non American its still nutrual.” … Try telling that to Lara, when he took on Paul Williams in Atlantic City USA.. Or when Oscar De La Hoya “won” the WBO title off Felix Sturm in Las Vegas prior to his “Middlewight Unification” fight with Hopkins.. Lol.. Sky Sport were even advertising the fight Oscar was going to have versus Hopkins at middleweight, DURING the Oscar v Sturm fight… Better still, just listen to the crap that Oscar and Hopkins said to Larry Merchant in the ring directly after the Sturm fight..Lol,lol,lol..

Posted May 30, 2013 3:39 pm 


Granted this is a projection but I think canelo may be the next oscar. Its very early in canelos career but from what I’ve seen of canelo on tape “this guys” skill, speed, offense, defense, power, and movement are just awesome. When he absolutely nulified trouts height and reach advantage with his speed I was very impressed. I always wondered if floyd could do that against paul williams or I thought floyd vs trout was intriguing before canelo vs trout. People saying canelo lacks skills I don’t believe they know how to watch boxing. Now canelo could get some better wind. His style is awesome but it requires a lot of energy. Canelo continuously does as he says and improves every time out and rises to the level of challenge of his oponent. I can’t wait to see the odds for this fight but I’m taking CANELO BABY!!.!!. Those old foyd legs you thought were an aberation against cotto are coming back. You thought floy “was back” after fighting guerrero. You forgot one thing, guerreros garbage. You’ve been had. Canelo wins this!

Posted May 30, 2013 3:29 pm 


“Mayweather and goldnboy promotions are in bed together”-boxtra…………mayweather is on his way OUT. Canelo will be the new cash cow with a very bright future ESPECIALLY if canelo wins. Did oscar say he thinks canelo can win? Oscar was sure happy in the ring when canelo beat trout. I don’t know how it will play out but canelo is 22 and floyd 36. Canelo has a huge future. Floyd will be retiring or doing his best like hopkins, toney, roy jones. Etc. If goldon boy is looking towards the futue I can easily see them thinking they want to take care of canelo

“he did just that when he beat Trout, grant you, it was still close, in NO WAY was that an easy win for Canelo….” TITOPA, please identify which of the following categories that Canelo didN’T dominate Trout in: Offense? Defense? Footwork? i submit that Canelo dominated in EVERY one of these categories. do you dare claim differently? if not, Canelo’s win over Trout was no less dominant than Mayweather’s over Guerrero. in fact, “Shocked” was the word that Trout used to describe the encounter. you are obviously still reeling from a similar shock yourself.

Posted May 30, 2013 3:17 pm 


SRED, the thing is this: Floyd Sr. will HAVE Floyd Jr READY for whatever Canelo brings to the ring. They’ve probably studied his fights before making the decision to fight him.

Posted May 30, 2013 3:06 pm 


What Floyd “sees” is a 22 year old kid who wants to come in with a 22 pound advantage which he will or close to it… Canelo weighed UNDER 154 against Trout at weigh-in this extra bit of water weight is nothing.. When you wanna be Great you gotta stop being spoiled, I like Canelo but Trout was an important step.. A full 154 pounder in his prime, now he wants to fight the Cash Cow of boxing a fighter who has been on the radar for over a decade and has NEVER been bested…Hes gotta make the super small concession and STFU about it… When Floyd got a shot at Oscar he had to move up to 154, I’m sure he would have loved the bout at 147…. Floyd’s being 10x more generous (absent the $$$$$) with Canelo,he needs to be LESS than 2 pounds under his prior weigh-in and gets to swell his YOUNG body to its hearts content… Chavez Jr is a lazy undisciplined athlete and he boils it down and still had enough in the 12 to rock Martinez who’s a bigger puncher than FMJ…. Canelos got no excuses for the beating he’s about to take..

Posted May 30, 2013 2:49 pm 


BOLD decision by Mayweather and we all know Canelo’s gonna come in around 170lbs. So Floyd I hope you’re ready for the biggest mf you’ve ever fought(no telling who Floyd has sparred with)..we’re in for a classic people

Posted May 30, 2013 2:46 pm 


Easy answer….NO! Canelo did what I ALWAYS wanted him to do, take on a tough/strong guy at 154, and he did just that when he beat Trout, grant you, it was still close, in NO WAY was that an easy win for Canelo….now, judging his resume ALONE, there’s not a single man on it that even comes close to “a Mayweather”, they (guys on his resume) or LEAGUES below Floyd in terms of skill. The kid has the will and the power, but lacks the SKILL and the EXPERIENCE one needs to even compete with Floyd. Mayweather will once again, show us why (skill wise) he is the BEST!

Posted May 30, 2013 2:33 pm 


The catch weight is meaningless. Canelo will be 170 fight night. Floyd wins by ud but it will be tough! Pac woulda been much easier! Too bad pac turn down 40 mil n drug testing so he wouldnt get his ass kicked! Sorry pactard sac riders your man is a fraud! Brandon rios might smash him!

Posted May 30, 2013 2:22 pm 


Well if that was Floyd’s way out of the fight why is Pac so adamant about taking the test now that he is completely out of the picture? What happened to all the excuses that were said the first time?

Posted May 30, 2013 2:18 pm

This fight proves that is was always Toprank that kept the Pacquiao fight from happening. When a super fight with Alverez came up, Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy got together and made the fight happen. This completely eliminates that lie that Mayweather was scared to fight Manny.

Posted May 30, 2013 2:00 pm 


People can talk about catch weights all they want. The difference here is Canelo won his first title just a couple fights ago against a 147lb fighter and Canelo weighed 150. Now he will come in at 152. But it is a catch weight fight. But I will say this fight seemed pretty easy to be made as opposed to some other fights.

Posted May 30, 2013 1:45 pm 


Martinez can’t make 154. He will not be an option and as far as I’m concerned he lost his last fight

Posted May 30, 2013 1:40 pm 


“Canelo needs to pull a Mayweather and come in heavy as Mayweather did to Marquez”-That MAY be the PLAN. Floyd is a marketing genius….At the last minute Canelo MAY come IN at 154 and Floyd will STILL take the Fight…the news has 24hrs to circulate which will convince those skeptical buyers WHO were on the Fence to buy the Fight because they really think that the extra 2 lbs is going to make the Difference in the Fight….Brilliant marketing!!! Floyd still WINS by SURGICAL UD.

Posted May 30, 2013 1:24 pm

Fighting Canelo now means that Mayweather might be on a legacy tour because the money is already in tha bank. Suggested scenario: Sergio Martinez at 154, Amir Khan in Britain at 147, Lucas Mathysse @147, then Pacquiao at 147 to finish it out. He can have a claim to GOAT status after that undefeated run.

Posted May 30, 2013 1:22 pm 


Charlie – Floyd uses his agility & footwork to dip out of danger. If you had those traits would you utilize them? Boxing is not just about hitting your opponent but avoiding getting hit.

“Box rec says titles are on the line? How? Its a catch weight fight?”-Its a catchweight Fight within the 154lbs and DOWN Division. SO the titles carried by both Fighters in that Division are on the line. Canelo has the Ring, WBA, and WBC while Floyd carries the Super WBA. 4 titles on the line.

“As a boxing fan though, I’m more than happy to see these two go toe-to-toe, with the most dangerous fighter on the planet going up against, simply the best fighter on the planet.”

I’ll be happy if it goes ahead too, but (1) it won’t be toe to toe (Mayweather will run) and (2) Alvarez is NOT “the most dangerous fighter on the planet”: his KO record is less than 70% (and Floyd’s only 10% less than that), whereas some fighters (e.g. Golovkin, Matthyse and Vitali) have almost 90% KO records.

GBP are smart. They know Canelo might not win but will set up for a great rematch when Mayweather fights his last fight on contract….Golden Boy Promotion #1

Posted May 30, 2013 12:45 pm 


You’ve gotta be kidding me. First time we get the fight we want to see in years and someone is gonna write some nonsense about it being too soon. Trout outclassed Cotto and Alvarez outclassed Trout. In my opinion, that would be sufficient to warrant the fight. The timing for this fight is absolutely perfect.

Posted May 30, 2013 12:16 pm 

terror tim

It probably is a little to soon for this fight but it is also one of the bigger fights that can be made right now. Both are tops of their division and Canelo hasn’t been beaten down by anyone. For fights its better to be to soon than to be too late [see Pac vs May]. You can’t complain about this one no matter how much you don’t like Floyd [and I don’t care for him as a person].

Posted May 30, 2013 12:08 pm 

Pete R.

The writer missed one very important possibility, what if Canelo wins? Out of the question, maybe. However, the lad is not a robot and has ring smarts that are suttle. Trout stated afetr his fight that he thought Canelo would be slower than he actually is and is alot stronger than appears. Will he win? Possibly or maybe not. The thing is that he turned pro at 14 and although he may have fought alot of nobodies, his acumen has been developed through experience. He will be alot faster than Mayweather thinks and not a typical robot. If the fight does not involve “controversy” I expect Canelo to raise his value significantly, no matter win or lose.

Posted May 30, 2013 12:02 pm 


This is to soon for Canelo to challenge Mayweather, l think Floyd wins easy bad move stepping up to Mayweather at only 22 years old. Canelo is taking a huge risk like Vargas vs Trinidad, to bad his ppl are chasing the money so soon.

Posted May 30, 2013 11:48 am 


Im glad this fight was made but the concern is that catchweight, obviously it was intended for a reason. Why wasnt that asked of Cotto? How easily can Canelo make 154lbs? If he struggles making 154lbs, then shedding those extra 2lbs, will affect Canelo. Was that the plan?

Posted May 30, 2013 11:41 am 


this fight reminds me of martinez vs chavez – ie i expect mayweather to easily school the bigger guy like martinez did with chavez hwver there is still a chance that canelo lands a big shot like chavez did – at the end hwver expect an easy ud for mayweather

Posted May 30, 2013 11:39 am 


its because he already struggles to make 154, tying to make 152 will destroy him physically, never mind the lack of rehydration rule, think Dawson vs Ward its almost the same situation.

Posted May 30, 2013 11:36 am 


Canelo better get a conditioning coach NOW, he’s gonna have to be in way better shape than he was with Trout! For a 22 year old, he sure seems to tire quickly….

Prof Konje

A reason that Mayweather has decided to fight Alvarez now may be that Floyd is still quite capable of beating a young, strong fighter. This may not be the case by the time that his contract with Showtime expires. He must know that his skills and reflexes will begin to fade within the next two years so he’ll be taking on opponents who pose a threat while he’s still on top of his game.

By the time his contract expires, he’ll take easier fights to fulfill his contract. I may be wrong, but Mayweather is not stupid. He has a strategy.

Posted May 30, 2013 10:55 am 


Does anyone really think Canelo has the experience, speed, track star shoes to run down and make Floyd actually fight? Canelo at this point is nothing more than a strong young kid that barely beat Trout, and I mean barely. He hasn’t fought anyone that shows me he has a chance of beating Mayweather. Mayweather took this opportunity because he knows Canelo isn’t ready, slow and he has a huge Mexican and Latino following so that he can get great PPV numbers to match or beat Manny Pacquiao numbers when he fights Rios. Floyd can’t stand being second to Manny. This will be another boring, boring fight with the usual hit, hug, hold and run tactics Floyd is known for. The Mexican fans love the red headed light skinned smiling young kid that many have crowned a legend already. I’m not being fooled by this fight as many smart fans aren’t also. I’ll give Floyd prop for picking smart fights that make him look good, and the money he makes on them. The Mega Fight circus will lead to the most boring and uneventful fight in championship boxing history.

Posted May 30, 2013 10:37 am

Smart move by Floyd, get this fight
out of the way, before he starts
declining and Canelo improving, then
cruise the rest of the way, Martinez
Is also on his way out
, so fighting him is not too farfetched, that
will substantiate his greatness even more
and silence alot of critics

Posted May 30, 2013 10:26 am

this may be the first Floyd opponent who might actually be stronger than Mayweather but i don’t think Canelo is gonna allow Floyd to turn this 154lb bout into a contest of grappling contest like it was v. DLH or Cotto. Alvarez will focus on mastering the range, keeping his distance, and pot-shotting Mayweather to distraction or the folly of miscalculating the distance and allowing Canelo to unload with the benefit of his prime reflexes and handspeed. it’ll be the hardest punch Mayweather has ever experienced. the suspense for this bout is what fight-plan Floyd will engineer and execute to foil all of Canelo’s natural advantages. ring-smarts and craft will have to be the key to another “boring” Floyd victory. otherwise, all of the other advantages are in Canelo’s favor.

Posted May 30, 2013 10:26 am 


Actually stuck in the moment only people on boxing websites and Oakland California know who Andre Ward is and he’s to blame for never wanting to fight outside of Oakland it has cost him dearly in the pocket book, yea you can say he gets paid 2 million from HBO but is that better than 20 million he could be receiving if he was a PPV star ?

Posted May 30, 2013 10:21 am 


I seem to be the first guy forcasting a canelo win. I was saying it when talk of the bout had started and now we have it. People wanna talk speed. Canelos every bit as fast. Canelo will hang everywhere with floyd. He will fight better in range than mosely and more power and he will close the gap and let his hands go if he has to if floyds running and score multiple shots. Just remember CANELO WIN YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST

Boxing’s Idiots call these fights “fun” … but the reality is that when these robots have to face a real boxer, then they end up with swollen eyes and putting on ice packs to the face, as recently happened Donaire …

Taco – FM has taken flush shots from some the hardest punchers in the sport Castillo, DLH, Cotto, SSM, Judah… and took them all. The only time he’s been truly hurt, and looking like he might fall, was when Corley popped him, but FM survived the round and won the match. I’m not ruling out that Alvarez can win, because he can, I think he’s that good, but I don’t see a KO. I still predict FM pulling this off, but it’s going to be a scrap until FM settles into his rhythm and makes Canelo start doubting himself. Canelo has never faced anything like FM, and FM has faced much better fighters than Canelo.

ESB is driving me nuts! I made one post on the site and the stupid system wouldn’t post it because I was posting too quickly between comments. WTF?!?! Anyhow, I’m glad this fight is happening at 154 and that Canelo’s title is on the mine. FM should win, but it will be a tough night because Canelo is rising and improving all the time. In the end I see skill, speed, and experience making the difference, and FM will have another true championship on his resume. And luckily the Ring Belt board doesn’t care if you hold their title simultaneously in to divisions. IF FM wins, he should drop to 140 and take on the Garcia Matthyse winner for that championship too. It won’t happen, but it’s not a bad match-up.
