Even MargaCheato is hiding in the USA while his wife and child are in Mexico and he clearly said that it’s dangerous for them in Mexico if anyone believed they had any money because of the Murders and kidnappings??? but the fker is here in the USA and his wife and child are back in that crime ridden latrine..

Canelo does look a little Mongoloid and confused in that photo.. could be part Mongoloid…

te tumbo

“Mongoloid” is not a scientifically-accepted classification and wikipedia is not a scholarly source. also, you would have to believe that ALL humans barely entered this continent a short 15,000 years ago to make the asian connection. in fact, archeaological digs in S. America have been carbon-dated to anywhere between 35,000 and 45,000 years old. moreover, it makes no sense that regions first inhabited(?) by humans (presumably N. America) would be the the least populous, civilized, or developed. the most logical theory is that the Americas aka Anahuac was populated in waves and most likely included the sea-faring or shipwrecked ancestors of Polynesians and the like. empires in the Valley of Mexico rose and fell hundreds and even thousands of years before the first europeans stepped foot in the Americas. you are all way out of your depth relying on “American” history and sources to explain Mexican culture and history. we don’t refer to American history as “HIS-story” for nothing and you guys are proving it with your typically ugly-American arrogance about your version of events about OTHER people’s history(?!).

The Truth

You’re dead wrong about that. Here you are claiming to be Amerindian and not White, yet you don’t even know the truth about the your own race. All indigenous peoples of the Americas, including Amerindians, Native Americans and Eskimos, are Mongoloids not Caucasians. Just google it if you really want to learn the truth about your so-called La Raza. I would bet that being genetic cousins with the Chinese, Japanese, Koreans and other East Asians never even crossed your mind, did it?

What about the Capoid race? Many scientists believe there are five major races on earth…

Posted June 3, 2013 11:58 am 


te tumbo

Mexicans like all Amerindians technically fall into the category of Caucasian, which doesn’t make them White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, i.e., “white”. the “cosmic race” as defined by Jorge Vasconcelos is very real and the philosophical basis for the use of “La Raza” to refer to the masses of Mexicans that define the Mexican identity. we don’t desire nor are we asking for the approval of outsiders. just like outsiders don’t seek La Raza’s approval for their version of their own history, culture, or national identity.

Posted June 3, 2013 11:45 am 


The Truth

Most anthropologists and geneticists believe there are four races on planet earth: Caucasoid, Mongoloid, Negroid and Australoid/Dravida-Sinhalese. The terms “Caucasian” and “Anglo,” as in Anglo-Saxon, are two of the most misunderstood and frequently misused racial identifiers in the U.S. The Caucasian race is extremely diverse and actually includes some or all of the populations of Europe, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, Western Asia/Middle East, Asia Minor, Central Asia and portions of South Asia. “Anglo-Saxon” simply means English and/or Germanic. The majority of White people in America are not Anglo-Saxons, as they are outnumbered by Celts, Slavs, White Hispanics and other Europeans like Italians and French. This is why the U.S. government officially uses the term “White” instead of Caucasian or Anglo.

There is no such thing as the “Mexican race” or La Raza. The majority of Mexican-Americans fall under the Caucasian race category, and that’s a major reason why they’re usually considered White. The exceptions are Mexicans who are all or mostly Amerindian, in which case they are part of the Mongoloid race category. It is quite interesting to think of Native Americans and Latin Amerindians as being the same race as East Asians, but that is indeed the case. The fourth and smallest race (Australoid/ Dravida-Sinhalese) was at one time considered to be a sub-group of the Negroid race, and was also at times categorized as “Uncertain” However, this was later revised and they are now thought to be too physically distinct to be included as a sub-group of the big three. Australoid/ Dravida-Sinhalese includes Aboriginal Australians and some or most of the peoples of South India, Sri Lanka, New Guinea and parts of Indonesia. This is pure science from a global perspective. Te Tumbo is talking about George Lopez-style political jargon based on a jaded and skewed version of the Mexican-American experience.

Texas would classify Mexicans as Caucasian to disguise what was otherwise rampant and institutional discrimination. this was ruled to be unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Hernandez v. Texas. CA v. Westminster did away with segregation of students according to race and ethnicity. these were the landmark cases that informed the actions of Thurgood Marshall during the Civil Rights era AFTERwards . . .

Btw, 85% of Mexicans have some degree of Amerindian blood in them. there was a lot of immigration into Mexico from europe, south America, and Cuba during the tumultuous period of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. those are the “white” Mexican who can trace their roots to foreign shores. otherwise, if you have no knowledge of family residing outside of Mexico, you’re MEXICAN Orrr you can simply go back to where you came from. we have nothing but disdain for and can easily spare any half-stepping Raza.

Mexicans aren’t “white”, don’t consider themselves to be “white”, nor do whites consider Mexicans to be “white”. the census was confusing and deceptive with its groups, subgroups, and micro-groups to choose from. i still don’t feel they got an accurate bead on me based on the choices they provided. Canelo’s brothers are no more or less Mexican than Canelo with or without the red hair and freckles and unlike Obama haven’t bothered to trace their ancestry further back than Mexico, which is where Mexican began. that’s all that matters.

This is the basic Problem with most Mexicans, they want so badly to be seen as Whites and are always quick to point out how others are non whites.. I’m watching on CNBC Prime “The Drug Wars of Mexico” and 90% of everyone shown is brown skinned or indian. I’ve seen ZERO Blondes, Blue eyed whites like you see in their Soap operas.. I’m sure they have some but hardly the Majority of the Nations makeup… as they would want everyone to believe… Chapo Guzman himself is of brown skinned.. Hardly a Scandinavian Viking…

Obama, Halle Berry, and Bob Marley are whiter than Canelo with traceable roots going all the way back to Ireland or Scotland or whatever European country they originally hailed from. Canelo is Mexican, which is fundamentally Amerindian stock with a healthy dose of European occupation in his blood and cultural history. i sincerely doubt that he (like most Mexicans) has any interest in knowing about any red-hair or freckles that didn’t originate in Mexico. labeling Canelo “white” doesn’t make him any less Mexican nor does it diminish the chance that he could have kids that look just like Morales or Ponce or his very own brothers from the same Mexican parents. profound ignorance are the poorly-translated and inaccurate American subtitles being provided by Col. Tark and Lt. Redmond. never mind the notoriously ignorant farts emanating from the peanuthead gallery.

Posted June 2, 2013 2:08 pm 


te tumbo

it was during the Olympic trials that Henry Tillman first exposed Tyson’s kryptonite v. skilled and athletic boxer-punchers. their best of 3 encounter resulted in Mike NOT representing the U.S. in the 84 Olympics. that matchup made such a strong impression on me that i favored Pinklon Thomas to defeat Tyson in their bout. unfortunately, “Pinkie” was too fearless for his own good and perhaps a little strung-out. anyway, i was surprised by Douglas’ win. it remains the only fight in which Douglas revealed greatness and it was v. a less-than-great-or-dedicated Tyson. i was confident that Holyfield would defeat Mike and that it was Tyson who felt fear going into that matchup. both Holyfield and Tyson knew what Evander’s expert punching-form and fundamentally-superior boxing skills would do to Mike who even in his ferocious prime was only a 5-round fighter. Tyson knew that Holyfield was good for 15 rounds and that he was in for a beatdown but instead of kissing and hugging like Ortiz v. Mayweather, he F’n bit Evander’s ear off(?!?). i still feel disgust at that dastardly act of unsportsmanship. Btw, Tillman was Demolished in his pro bout v. Tyson. along with that other Olympic standout Tyrell Biggs who was reduced to a whimpering pile of Bust by the still “Iron” Mike. the “fear-factor” got to them . . . go figure.

Tyson had been in 45 fights” and look at all the available guys he could’ve fought in that campaign and all the guys he did fight. No real notable 90s fight until he faced holy. If haye fought the guys tyson fought into a klitschko bout we would be calling it “path of least resistance” and garbage like that. It was defintly overall weak resistance when you think of all the90s fighters that were fighting at the time. Really how good was “that” mike tyson? I think haye would’ve smoked him who fought holy. I think a ton of guys would beat him like they ended up doin. Tark was spot on with his posts concerning holy and tyson. Peak brewster would beat that tyson imo. A lot of guys beat tyson. A lot of guys beat holy like john ruiz. Lol. Canelo’s canelos speed and size and boxing ability make him floyds toughest fight. If canelo doesn’t win it will still be floyds toughest fight

In essence you are giving Canelo MORE respect for his resume than you give Floyd, Oscar, Marquez, Cotto and Mosley for theirs UNLESS it’s convienent because you tried to sell us a VERY depleted, SHOT Mosley as a BIG win for Canelo… Your a novice and Tarks right there with you trying to sell Kermit Cintron

You discuss Holyfield who was a former Cruiserweight “knowing he was bigger than Tyson” well what about the Klits who DWARF most of the bums, sparring partners and C level fighters they feast on…??? What about the 6 inches and 27 pounds Vitali had on Adamek? Or Wlad with 3 inches and 35 pounds or so on David Haye?

My point about resumes is this. Clay had like 17 fights with noone I realy even know before he smoked list 2 times in a row who had roughly 40 fights and was the champ with the resume. Legacy wise and greatness wise and for analyzing purposes a resume is great. But in every fighters career there was a beginning where they didn’t have much of one. Caelos lack of a resume and therefore worse than many floyd opponents has no bearing on the quality of opponent canelo is. I thought that was obvious. Canelo is floyds toughest opponent to date if you ask me. After this fight I will definetly say canelo is floyds best opponent. If floyd wins I will be impressed for sure. Although ali had no res when he fought liston, he was listons best opponent. And noone knew the greatness that layed ahead of clay. Funny thing after clay fought liston he changed his name to cassius x, then he changed it to muhhamad ali. Took a couple tries but cassius was eventually figured out his nation of isam name he liked best. Lol. But the better your resume, or the larger, the more we have tae to analyze, judge, deduce, and draw inferences. For our own views and opinions.

TARK

Sredmond is back talking about the K Bros on this thread… Holyfield’s wins over Tyson are diminished because Buster Douglas already proved that a good peak boxer, with good size, could dominate Tyson…

Tyson never fought a natural prime heavyweight who was a fair boxer until he met Tony Tucker. Tucker was easy to hit but hard to stop. He took everything Tyson could throw. He was 6’5” X 225. He was tough until his chin wore down from getting hit too much. That fight opened Buster Douglas’s eyes because he knew he had better skills than the wide open Tucker.

Holyfield knew he was 3 inches taller and just as big and strong as Tyson. He knew his skills were much better. He knew Tyson couldn’t box and never beat a big, powerful prime, skilled boxer. Holyfield blitzed Douglas so he knew Douglas wasn’t much. The thing that knocks Holyfield down is his Bowe fights. Bowe was a big, lazy, slow, dumb, wide open target—but Bowe beat a prime-time Holyfield twice, knocked him down 3 times, and knocked him out. The Tyson fights become shortly after the last Bowe fight. But if you flattened a guy who trounced your next opponent it gives you a lot of confidence. Holyfield had tremendous confidence against Tyson and that unnerved Mike. Larry Donald, David Haye, Eddie Chambers, Tomasz Adamek, and Juan Carlos Gomez were more skilled than any list of Holyfield victims you can produce. Losing to John Ruiz? That really sucks. The K Bros beat all comers for more years than Holyfield held his various titles. Vitali has never been outboxed in his life. He’s never been behind on points. He’s never been knocked down. And those things happened to Evander a lot … Plus EH ducked Lewis for years.

What about Tomas Adamek who Vitali bludgeoned in a GROSS physical mismatch?? Adamek is NOT stopping peeps at HW and has gotted some VERY questionable calls against Cunningham and light hitting Chambers….Are these these guys worse than Holy who won the belt 4 times, Beat Bowe, Tyson 2X, Moorer and Foreman??

Trout was by far his best win but in that bout despite those scores which were WAY too wide he showed some good and bad points to trained observers… People walked away wondering how he would have fared with his fighting in spurts had he NOT known one of the judges had him up prohibitively after a SHORT time… On the flipside he showed improved defense in spurts that was NOT a starmaking performance on par with Mayweather vs Corrales or Broner vs Demarco where a guy was dismantled and taken out…

If I’m using any one fight to sell canelo its trout but not usng any one fight. I’ve pointed out exponential growth and development in canelos last 3 fights and probably stretching back further than that. Mosley was an ok opponent for 21 year old canelo and if u ask me canelo has improved a lot since that fight in just two fights. Oscar pointed this out too when discussing canelo. I thought canelo vs mosley was a good fight. I don’t think mosley was all the sudden half the fighter he was when he faced mayweather like you contend I think that’s ignorant. What I do think is mosley was a suitable oponent for then 21 year old canelo. I don’t think he was suitable for the so called number one p4p fighter. I would rather have seen pac or martinez face floyd. Mosley vs floyd was another forgone conclusion. But we were treated with mosely jacking that jaw. Was mosley vs floyd ppv material? Not to me. Neither was ortiz or guerrero or many floyd bouts for that matter. But that’s my preference as a fan. Canelo vs floyd is bigtime ppv to me though. And floyds most dangerous opponent to date

But then again I don’t have to be a trout fan to learn from trout vs cotto, may vs cotto, and canelo vs trout. Or did I need to be a fan of some kind to glean anything from these bouts? What is your line of thinking here? Your coming off as kind of dumb. My general taste for and regard of feather fists have nothing to do with anything.

Trout can’t punch worth a damn” lol did you see cotto vs trout and cotto vs mayweather? Lol cotto did muc better against may and go absolutely dominated by trout and then u say trout can’t punch. Who are you really insulting here? Hmmmmmm lol. I think it wuld be more aptly put “you can’t watch boxing woth a damn (which is sad) I wonder if you could glean your getting wet when its raining?” I wonder if anyone else in the world could watch cotto vs trout and respond with “trout can’t punch worth a damn”. As far as gonzo disagreeing with me. Lol @redmond. Most will disagree with me. I’m taking the underdog. I’ve never met a man I agree with all the time and neither has yourself.

Cotto looked good against floyd. I just watched that fight again. Busted him in the shnoz. Your resume or ring accomplishments can’t fight for you. All because cotto beat margareato or jmm beat pac, or mosley beat oscar in his prime, or canelos resume is not quite as good as some other floyd opponent is irrelevant. Floyds not fighting resumes he’s fighting a fighter canelo matrix alvarez. In terms of gleaning how good canelo is, you can sel canelo short if you want. Canelo will .ot replicate what washed up cotto, oscarc and mosley did. He will go beyond that. You heard it here first. CANELO WINS

Bears, see YOUR mentors post below it directly contradicts YOUR thesis on the Canelo fight or do you agree that Alvarez did NOT win a SINGLE round against Trout? This is the type of ridiculous game playing that FAKE fight fans like yourself and Gonzo engage in… Who in the World would propose that Canelo did not even win the round he knocked Trout down in? I KNOW that you will waffle and squirm because you are NOT man enough to defend your stance against a guy who’s scrotum you cradle no matter the conversation…. I would NOT be surprised to see Gonzo disavow his comments if its expedient but alas we ALL know what he’s doing…. Like I said you are inconsistent… Trout cannot punch worth a damn and when I picked Canelo that was my main point of contention.. Trouts size worked for him against Canelo who is a SMALL SMW not standing much taller than Pacquiao vs Trout who is a solid 6″0 and heavier at 170 pounds on fight night..

And I had a very interesting conversation with Public Enemy the other day where he so astutely pointed out that Trout had Canelo backed up against the ropes in one of the rounds, quivering in mortal fear. It even looked like he was out of it for a second and that the ropes where holding him up. And judging by the expression on the referee’s face, it looked like he was about to jump in a stop it to me.

We all KNOW thats ridiculous and simply an attempt to set the table for a Canelo loss and subsequent devaluation of a Mayweather victory… Its always good to note the inconsistencies of FAKE fight fans and call them out…AGAIN you despite light hitters but suddenly Trout is “The man” ??

Bears, your analysis could NOT be WORSE…. There is NOT a single fighter on Canelos resume or ANYONES from 140-154 that approximates the package that Floyd Mayweather brings to the ring.. The GROSS overestimations of Canelo based on Trout are the province of amateurs…. Trout beat a BETTER fighter than Canelo EVER did and he STILL lost to Canelo… If you think that Trout accomplished more in his career than future Hall of Famer and 3 division World Champion Miguel Cotto you are CRAZY….The guys who have given Floyd the most difficult fights over the past several years are HOF veterans who have had MANY World Title fights and upper echelon foes ie Oscar De La Hoya who boxed very well for 7 rounds but succumbed to the faster hands and superior conditioning of FMJ… Miguel Cotto who did NOT get blown out of rounds even as he was losing the majority of them and actually gained Floyds respect MORE than any other opponent in a LONG time….Floyd has almost had MORE World Title fights than Canelo has years on the planet 21….He often tells fighters at the “Face OFF” “It looks VERY different in there with me than it does on TV”…. Malignaggi broke it down and discussed the many subtle things FMJ does that other fighters are ill prepared for… He is EASILY the GREATEST Ring General in the past 10 years and he does it without devastating power… Canelo is a kid who compared to Floyd has NOT been tested worth a damn….Canelo has a PUNCHERS chance and nothing more, he’s young and big…If he stands in the middle of the ring he is gonna get terribly humiliated…

Btw, i didn’t catch anything in Trout’s win over Cotto that indicated he could defeat Canelo. first of all, Cotto is a poor and inaccurate measure at 154lbs. also, Trout emerged looking like a very conventional, i.e., predictable fighter, which turned out to be an advantage for Canelo. he knew precisely what to expect and prepare for. the same advantage did not exist for Trout resulting in “shock” and awe at Canelo’s execution and ability to foil him at every turn. this is what paralyzed Trout for the duration of the bout. it wasn’t open scoring. it was not being able to get off with any of the weapons he prepared for the bout. enabling Canelo to dominate in every aspect of the contest. as dominant a performance as Mayweather’s over Guerrero.

if open scoring reveals a losing fighter’s lack of dimensions, what’s wrong with that? i enjoyed watching Trout trying to get to Canelo, which also compelled Canelo to display his own unexpected dimension of defense, footwork, and counterpunching. if open scoring forces a fighter to display abilities beyond the predictable, it’s a good thing. in fact, the biggest gripe against open scoring expressed in this thread seems to be that it wasn’t Canelo having to chase Trout and whose fault was that? not the judges but Trout himself who was caught completely flat-footed and “Shocked” by Canelo’s ability to execute a multi-dimensional fight-plan according to the situation that unfolded in the ring. if open scoring reveals potential greatness, i’m all for it.

OK… What happened with Trout was this… Canelo was a mile ahead and it became foolish to take chances. Make Trout force the action because he’s not a great attacker. Trout almost slip his liver trying to get all those rounds back — with total ineffectiveness.

The fight would have been altogether different without open scoring.. Can you imagine Floyd needing a KO? He’d be as hopeless as Trout. That’s what I hate about open scoring. A poor attacker with no punch has ZERO chances if he gets behind.. The action crawls to a snail’s pace because the puncher is saying, “HAHAHAHA.. Come get me sucker. Get on your war horse and charge you anemic ant.”

What is canelos natural weight would u say? 171? Whatever it is canelo is STOUT. Mayweather is gonna feel those punches anywhere on the body mass canelo strikes. Yes I know canelos resume isn’t the best o al floyd opponents but canelo is definetly floyds best opponent and matchup to date. No more feasting on little guys. No more slow feather fists.

I saw Alvarez/Trout as a close fight. I had Alvarez up by 2 rounds. There were a lot of close rounds in that fight. The open scoring was a lousy idea. Personally I think it affected the fight.

PEEJ, i’ll ask once again, in which of the following categories do you not believe Canelo dominated Trout?: 1) Offense 2) Defense 3) Footwork. otherwise, it was as dominant a win for Canelo as Mayweather’s was over Guerrero. i can’t recall a single meaningful punch landed by Trout. i also can’t recall ever seeing a presumably skilled boxer miss so many punches in a row in each and every round. Trout was also dropped and wobbled several times without returning the favor to Canelo even Once. perhaps you were mesmerized by Trout’s posturing(?) but in terms of actual execution, Trout was DOMINATED in every category you can think of. “Shocked” is the word that Trout used to describe the encounter. exactly what did i miss that compels you to insist that his was a close bout?

Bears, Canelo spent too much energy showing off how he could evade Trouts punches. His fight plan for that bout involved too much upper body movement and moving around in general. He was in constant motion and by the later rounds of the fight, as we all saw, he was dropping his arms to his sides because he was so tired. Besides that he looked downright gassed throughout several rounds. Plus, he was so busy avoiding Trout’s punches, that he threw relatively few of his own. The only reason I gave the win to Canelo was that he landed more power punches, he was more effective than Trout was, and he knocked Trout down once. But is was a very, very close fight. Had Canelo not scored the KD I probably would have scored the fight a draw or a very narrow SD for Trout. No matter, based on what I saw in Canelo’s performance against Trout, Floyd will handily beat Alvarez. The two-pound catchweight will help to insure that Floyd gets his win.

Honestly, I’d rather see Mayweather fight Trout or Bradley at this time, but we know that isn’t going to happen. I’d also like to see Floyd fight Malignaggi, Abregu (currently ranked #1 contender by the WBC) or even Jesse Vargas who is currently ranked 6th by the WBC and 5th by the WBA, or even Keith Thurman who is ranked 4th by the WBA, and even Diego Chaves who is ranked #1 contender by the WBA. These guys are all bonafide welterweights–the division in which Floyd fights best. In addition to seeing Floyd fight Trout, in the jr. middleweight division my choices would include Angulo and Lara. I think a Mayweather fight with Lara would be especially competitive because Lara like Mayweather is a natural boxer.

Then he gives trout his first defeat and his first knockdown. Canelo now just has to prepare for floyds shooting from as wide a range floyd can get on canelo’s speed and then waiting for canelo to come forward and strike, mayweather will try to move to position to hit canelo like an advanced counter. like a check hook. floyds movement in combination with his striking (the creating of angles) is the unique style canelo has to prepare for. Mayweather will not stay stationary too long against canelo like he has made the mistake of doing against others. it will be waaaaaay to costly on mayweather if he does that………….staying stationary against canelo and mayweather gets hurt. quick

I just went back through the tape of canelo vs mosley, lopez, and trout. MAN!!!! canelo just keeps in improving and how about those combos he starts to put together? I love those combos!!! Especially, the uppercut to the left hook to the body. Just awesome. This kid has a such a bright future. Obviously, I think the trend will continue. Canelo’s inside fighting. Speed closing the gap. And his deffense. He literally made trout miss like 7 or 8 punches in a row at times. Just phenomenal. He finished one dodge fest off by going back and kind of turning to the side. watching every punch of trouts. We will see canelo continue to improve and thus enter the ring EVEN BETTER against floyd. I think his stamina/wind will be squared away. I hope he is sparring some great fighters in prep for this bout. This fight could be the fight of the DECADE. I will be surprised if floyd doesnt back out when that reality sets in.

A possible loss towards the end of ones career shouldn’t be looked at as a big mistake. Canelo is quick enough to catch Mayweather with something he doesn’t see, if Mayweather makes a mistake. I’m pretty sure that won’t happen much, but sometimes all it takes is once.

ImJustSayin

Whats all this talk about> Nice to have wont make much a difference here. Actually it would serve Canelo NOT to come in around 170 but at around 165. At 170 he wil be sluggish and Money will pick him apart. At 165 or there abouts he will be light enough to be agile. I mean really whats his fight plan, to cut of the ring and muscle Money? Yoiu think he doesnt know that? Its also not like Canelo is the best at cutting off the ring. He also tires in his fights in the later riounds. So enough about the weight, its not that big an advantage. The only reason they are having it at 152 is simply psychological to make Canelo think he needs to do more.

Posted May 31, 2013 11:43 am

not a “big mistake”. it’s simply a risk that the greatest fighters are supposed to take. however, let’s be clear, it’s the huge PPV payday that’s compelled “Money” to take this risk. he doesn’t fear losing to a superior opponent. i don’t think that thought seriously troubles the likes of Floyd but missing out on an historical payday does seriously trouble Mayweather. as far as “Money” is concerned “if it makes money, it make sense” remains the guiding principle of his career trajectory. having already earned two “Ws” at 154lbs, Canelo qualifies as a logical opponent and the biggest payday that Mayweather can not and will not ignore.

Floyd felt for his critiques argument that he doesn’t take any risks against dangerous opponents afraid he’ll lose his unbeaten record. At the same time, there aren’t many opponents for Floyd to make half the money he can make by fighting Canelo. However, just as Leonard beat a much stronger fighter on Hagler, Floyd has the ability to do the same against Canelo.

This is also, IMO, the perfect time for Floyd to fight Canelo, as Canelo lack the experience to deal with an experience boxer as Floyd. Floyd will not doubt will enter the ring in exceptional shape, as he does for most of his fights. On the other hand, Canelo may still have issues trying to maintain the weight and may end up over-training.

Either way, though due to promotional abilities by promoters, networks and Floyd this fight would be made to be the greatest match of all time in boxing history, I don’t believe Canelo is at the same level of Floyd. Canelo’s fights have been carefully orchestrated to make him appear bigger than life. Floyd will make him look like another ordinary boxer. Floyd by unanimous decision and perhaps Floyd-Pac in May 2014.

Posted May 31, 2013 7:33 am 


Mo-Box

Hats off for Mayweather going for arguably a proper challange for a long time.

But we already know Floyd’s team ain’t stupid and they’ve well analized the tactical situation. They know despite the weight advantage Canelo has many flaws, he hasn’t optimized his pacing to come strong in the second part of the fight and he’s still green on the top stage despite the number of fights in his record.

I expect Canelo to come strong leading in the beginning and a well planned pin-point KO or TKO is his only chance in rd 1-5, but May’s careful, mighty skillfully defensive and his pacing is just right and well optimized over long experience (it’s something you can’t buy!) and I expect him to turn tides and even school the fading Canelo in the second part of the fight and come over him with SD or even UD, maybe even score a TKO in the late. May’s footwork will be the deciding factor how wide UD he’ll score.

Yeah it’s boxing allright, so anything can happen, but for the experienced master of art, those 10-20 extra pounds on the slower opponent will only work to his adavantage in the game of boxing.
