M.P

I’m not a Mayweasther fan but I dont even see this fight as close. FMJ will totally outbox Alvarez & win easily on points. Alvarez should leave this one for at least 2 years.

hopefully canelo will be everything we’ve expected, even if he is like that will be a tough fighter against the money maker, any how i don’t think canelo will beat him, cause we know the box style mayweather has, could not be the best style, or the most exciting style, but it’s an effective style, so, the cimaron will be in serious issues, not because he can get knocked out, but in the cards will never win, he has to ko mayweather, and we know how hard can that be, he has one chance, only if mayweather take the challengue of body to body fight, but we know mayweather will never do that, so even when canelo it’s number one for me, been reallistic he have not very much chances of winning, but it will be one good fight, but not the best we can see, i think it will be better with miguel a cotto, cause we’ll se a ko cotto

People slamming this kid for not having fought anyone should remember he intended to fight Williams and Ortiz, not his fault those matches didn’t take place. Best wishes to Williams in recovery …….RANKED 154 fighters not welterweights paul williams aside ortiz is not a junior middleweight ……

Fighting Canelo would be no joke for Mayweather… This kid is a fresh 22 years old and undefeated in over 40 professional fights. Mayweather will be 36 and is undefeated in 43 fights—but he’s fading by the day… The Cinnamon Kid has blazing hand speed, more power than Mayweather ever dreamt of having, a tough middleweight’s chin, and every weapon in the book including a lethal liver shot … I’d be first in line to see this fight, especially considering the crackling shots Floyd absorbed in his last contest—when he was only 35. I think Floyd would win—but he may absorb a few Mosley type bombs and have to haul his ass off the canvas to do it. As a pure spectacle, this could be better than Mayweather-Pacquiao … Damn I’d love to see it.

IF Canelo wants to continue facing subpar competition or only the most lucrative Fights available then he needs vacate his title and focus on becoming the PPV CHAMP or People’s CHAMP. Holding on to the title and never facing your Top Contender is called SISSYFIED.

So many amateurs on here, Canelo would NEVER be the biggest payday or PPV of Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiaos career… This kid fought on Floyds undercard NOT vice versa…. FMJ did 2.4 million buys with Oscar and 1.5 million with Cotto, Canelo would benefit from fighting him economically… Get Real

Kirkland is a brawler and the reality is that his and Angulos “brawling” had taken them further than many so called “slick boxers”….That fight was a GREAT style matchup between two guys who want to mix it up…. AGAIN you really wanna downplay Kirkland as a second choice in order to the idea that Canelo just wants to “Cherrypick”…. When you insinuate that Paul Williams and James Kirkland would have been easy nights for Canelo its REALLY as testimony to YOUR true perception of his skills….. There is NO WAY you can call Angulo a bad night for JK, he tore his ass out and stopped him brutally for the first time in his career

Posted October 24, 2012 11:15 am 


SREDMOND

REM that is simply NOT objective analysis you are trying to undermine Kirklands signature win by discussing a fantasy outcome ie James getting stopped by Angulo… After a tough first round in which he ended the rising tide (knocked Angulo down HARD)… He dominated Alfredo and simply steamrolled a previously iron-chinned opponent and a guy who had been well regarded at 154 pounds….We know he got upset by Ishida and struggled with Molina… But correct me if I am wrong Lara struggled with Molina also…. Reality is that was a TOUGH fight for Canelo at this stage had it happened, if you want to pretend he was not stepping up so be it but you are simply not being accurate….

Posted October 24, 2012 11:08 am

Sred imo Kirkland had 3 bad outings since getting out had the brainless Angulo not punched himself out he wouldve finished Kirkland. That fight was horrible 2 clubfighters if u ask me however Kirkland did get the win and be would’ve been a tough test for Canelo with his will and toughness. Also i agree that its not Canelos fault that GB has matched him up with smaller fighters but its been a turnoff me being a Lara fan it makes me sick to my stomach.

Posted October 24, 2012 10:50 am

Anyone blaming Canelo for possibly facing FMJ or Cotto over ANYONE is foolish… Those guys are PPV stalwarts and Floyd offers the biggest purse of his career…..If that fight came off Alvarez would be a moron not to take the shot, impending loss aside….This is not another Povetkin/Klitschko scenario…

WTF, Quillan is a 160 pounder, Quintana is NOT a big deal, he has been knocked out by Williams, Cotto and Berto… Solid guy but we know Canelo would break him down… Lara is a very solid fighter and eventually they may go at it, but alas Canelo fought Lopez because the tougher bouts “Williams and Kirkland” were unable to be made due to unusual circumstances…Andre Ward is terrific and P4P fighter but he was not battling the BEST guys at 21 or 22, He was brought along properly and has matured into the force we see today… Hopefully Canelo will do the same

Posted October 24, 2012 9:56 am 


SREDMOND

REM I really don’t think thats fair and your assesment of how “Kirkland looked” belies the fact that he is a TOUGH out absent bad nights with Ishida and Molina (still got a W) we all fall into the trap of being mad that a guy cannot find the PERFECT opponent to face…. Kirkland or Paul Williams were BOTH very solid tests for Canelo and the reality is their inability to make the fights was not Canelos fault… His route has been pretty traditional given his age, GBP knows that piling up wins against Cab Drives in Mexico would not prepare him for the future that lies ahead…. The kid has been trying to step up and Lopez was made to save the event…

Sred true even though i think they were sizing up Kirkland because he has looked very sloppy since getting out but props for signing on to PWill that wouldve been a tough challenge however seriously this dude shouldnt even be ranked at jmw. His choice of opponents starting with Hatton have been a joke ive never seen something like this before.

WTF????

Mad Scientiest – Cotto is a Puerto Rican and has a Loyal Built in PPV Crowd… Just like Canelo has with his Mexican Fans.. no one other then Mexicans wants to Pay to see Canelo spar with old GEEZERS or smaller fighters… Cotto is #3 in PPV Revenue fights.. behind Mayweather and Paquiao..

Posted October 24, 2012 6:04 am 


WTF????

SREDMOND – Yes we can ding Canelo because he does not want to fight the other available Welters including his Belts Mandatory number 1 fighter Cuban Erislandy Lara.. as well as Puerto Rican Gabriel Rosado, and Cuban Quillin.. not to mention the other top guys at his true Welter Weight Division… Why is he wasting time fighting Skinny 140lb guys..? or 42 year old Geezers like Mosely.. Ortiz was another naturally smaller guy… and Williams was a shell of his former self…. he needs to fight his Mandatory period or give up that gift Belt GoldenBoy bought for him…

It’s unfair to ding Canelo for supposedly avoiding JR Welters… He went after 2 very tough outs in Paul Williams and James Kirkland, we know how those stories ended… Reality is that the guy is young as hell with alot of upside… Big fights are in the offing, he and Cotto would be fun, but I would favor Cotto due to experience at the top levels and toughness..

Posted October 24, 2012 4:08 am

Even though both matchups would be interesting because of Canelos size and decent skill level we are again talking about 2 smaller fighters both are only 5′ 7″. Seriously when is this dude gonna fight at jmw.

Plan B should be the winner of Lara v. Martiosyan. after Alvarez wins, everyone will still complain that he hasn’t faced any high-quality opponents. not even a win v. each other will earn that distinction for Lara or Martirosyan and that it is their actual status and ranking in the sport right now. there’s no rush to face either of these prospects.

Posted October 24, 2012 12:52 am

i think Alvarez deMolishes Cotto, Right-Now and that’s the fight i want to see first. it won’t be the blowout of an expired legend either because Cotto’s still competitive but fatally undersized and outgunned v. Canelo at 154lbs. besides, as much practice as possible before Saul is tossed into the same ring as Mayweather. that’s gonna be no picnic and pending strong evidence of Floyd’s decline, i favor the still-prime Mayweather. even at 154lbs.

If Canelo doesn’t need Lara, then Cotto doesn’t need Canelo. Same logic, moron. Cotto sells more PPVs than Canelo, who sells more than Lara. Quit whinning like a little beeatch.

Hidalgo.. I agree with everything you said, and especially with the bits where you agreed with me. Floyd’s lies and his ridiculous and convoluted attempts to wriggle out of taking on Manny have been beyond embarrassing. The so called self-appointed ”Greatest of all times” has pulled every trick in the book to wriggle out of getting the beating that both he and 99% of us knowledgeable boxing fans know is coming his way if he ever manages to find those little rat sized balls that are hidden away beneath all those piss-stained chicken feathers of his. The guy is a straight up coward and I swear on my father’s grave that if I ever run into the little baboon-eyed charlatan I’m going to beat the living crap out of him – and I’m being deadly serious about that too – you do realize that lunatic damn near beat his poor babbymomma to death in front of of his children don’t you? He even started laying into them after he’d finished cracking her skull open against the marble floor too.. who knows what would’ve happened had his bouncers not been there to pull him off of them? The ‘man’ is a vile, sick psychopath and he’s also a total affront to this most noble and glorious of sports and his flagrant and shameless cowardice disgusts me beyond words. This sport is built off of the blood, sweat, and tears of warriors and I’m at a complete loss as to how he can even look himself in the face in the morning when he’s brushing those big old ugly horse sized teeth of his.

Cotto ducking Canelo. If Cotto wanted a belt so bad he could’ve fought Canelo in Dec. Instead he chose Trout. But like I said many times Canelo don’t need Cotto to get Mayweather fight. And quit bringing Laras name up ..he can’t fill a living room couch and on top of that he got handle by Molina. Now Mayweather vs Canelo would be a great fight…

Titopa – so an extremely skilled fighters can be run over by a bigger, stronger fighter with less skilled if the smaller man doesn’t have what it takes to get the bigger guys respect, gotcha!..so an older, smaller Floyd Mayweather who is clearly on the decline still has what it takes to totally outclass a bigger, stronger, younger Canelo who is on the rise, super!..how stupid of me for entertaining the thought that Alvarez actually had a chance of handling Floyd’s punch and physical strength..please continue to preach the science and further wow us with all that boxing wisdom of yours.

Posted October 23, 2012 8:55 pm 


SREDMOND

The only issue with this “Canelo needs to prove theory” is that NO ONE knows how many fights Mayweather has left in him the guy is about to be 36, waiting Floyds and old man or ready to move on is a dubious proposition…. So what if Canelo absorbs a loss? The guy makes money and if he puts up a decent effort he will have gone a solid 12 with a legend…. There is NOT gonna be a guy who brings the cash like FMJ for quite sometime and we KNOW that Pac Man cannot fight someone Canelos size…

Posted October 23, 2012 8:39 pm

Hattons skills were so dramatically improved by Mayweather that he got his head knocked off is seconds by Manny Pacquiao… Mayweather/Pacquiao was a contentious, unsuccessful partnership that resulted in Hatton retiring from the sport…Hatton beat Malignaggi because Ricky was once a World Class fighter who had NOTHING to fear from a light hitter like Malignaggi… Ricky pushing Paulie around led some to believe that he stood a chance against Pac Man and we saw how that turned out… Hatton was a BRAWLER and thats how he lived and damn near DIED in the ring…

I think its fairly silly to suggest Canelo v PBF within 18 months. I do not think Floyd would damage him beyond repair but I see a Martinez v Chavez Jr sort of result. Floyd and Pac (yaaaaawn) need to finally get it on and Saul needs to keep progressing. I didnt realize Canello has already been Pro for 7 years, turned pro at 15 from what I have read. Thats pretty old school and I hope the kid does well, just be patient

Boxtradamus

“Malignaggi had more “boxing skills” than Ricky Hatton….but he was completely over powered and mauled like a bear, because Ricky was just too strong and NOTHING Paulie threw discouraged him.”-GOOD guess but nope. Hatton’s SKILLS were dramatically improved by Mayweather. Also Hatton was ALWAYS a more SKILLED inside Fighter than Malignaggi. Malignaggi is one of the POOREST inside Fighters of ALL TIMES… EASY WIN for Hatton. And Malignaggi’s lack of POP or STRENGTH was a LESSER factor than his lack of Offensive and Defensive inside SKILLS.

Posted October 23, 2012 7:45 pm 


Boxtradamus

“You can be the most skilled boxer on the planet…but if you don’t have some pop (or strength), other boxers with far less skills can run you over!”-Well its a GOOD thing that Garcia has POP and STRENGTH. But even IF he didn’t STILL no worries because your statement is FALSE…… All you HAVE to DO is be able to score on Offense and avoid scoring punches on Defense. Running someone over does NOT count on the scorecards. That’s why Andre Ward beat Abraham and Bika on the scorecards. That’s also WHY Malignaggi has a WINNING record despite having little strength and minimal POP.

Posted October 23, 2012 7:40 pm 


hecdog

Canelo is bigger, stronger and younger fighter than Cotto, Floyd and Pacquiao. He’s not even at his prime and won’t be for another 3-4 years. He’s still very raw, but has plenty of potential. To date, he hasn’t fought anyone of high caliber, and has not been tested. I’m still curious about his chin, stamina, and the ability to make adjustments against fighters that can deal with his power and speed. He is very hittable. Earlier he was rocked and wobbled in his fight against Jose Cotto. Since then he’s had better defense and hit less. He will have trouble (IMO) with Vanes and Lara. Both come to fight, and are natural junior middleweights, and have excellent amateur experience and professional experience. We would find out a lot about Canelo if and when he fights either of these guys, but we all know how promoters run boxing. Canelo is a the big cash cow for GBP. They know he brings in tons of money, so they continue to feed him guys that present no challenge, but bring in Canelo’s big fan base, which equates to big money. Will they be confident enough to cut the chains off and let him fight any of the top guys mentioned? Maybe since Floyd and Cotto are too small, too old and on their way down. Maybe the timing is right for Canelo begin a new era and lead the next generation of boxing champions or maybe the old kings still have something left to beat him.

Because Mayweather is scared of Pacquiao. He is scared of losing to Pacquiao. He can’t and won’t allow Pac to take all the glory of the fight of the century from him. Even when on the decline, Pac can, and will give Floyd a beating. No shoulder roll will save him from the Pacquiao blitz. Pacquiao will be so motivated and pissed at this ranting fool, he will make a speedbag out of Mayweather’s shiny head.

Posted October 23, 2012 7:18 pm 


Hidalgo

Gonzo, you are absolutely correctamundo regarding Mayweather never fighting Pacquiao. The guy has claimed, numerous times over the years, that he could beat Pacquiao, PEDs or no PEDs, but he has never really made a genuine effort to make the fight happen. He talks, yeah–talks big too. But the reality is he won’t make the fight even though he knows Pac is pretty much shot to “smithereens” as you say. That being said, the “midget” (I do hate that label) hasn’t made any real effort either. Both of them always defer in the name of money. Or some other BS.

I have no issue with Canelo fighting Floyd reality is that he would be getting a 36 year old version of Mayweather…But Floyd is a unique athlete and competitor he has shown that whatever it takes to win he will indeed do…Canelo would be too stationary and he often needs to reset in order to get his offense going, during those transitions Floyd Mayweather would strike often….Mayweather figures your out, adjusts and exploits… Canelo would be no different but 5mill in his pocket would ease the ego damage

Floyd don’t want none of the Ginger Mexican. lol. He been running from the yellow midget since ’82 (he still won’t sign the contract even though it’s common knowledge Manny is shot to smithereens), what makes you cats think he gonna step up to the plate against Canelo? lol. The fight I really want to see is Floyd vs Golovkin.. Floyd wouldn’t step foot in the same time zone as GGG let alone in the same ring though. lol. Funny how Duran started at lightweight and took on arguably the best middleweight of all time in Marvelous Marvin, eh? He also stepped up to the plate against Sugar Ray and Tommy Hearns too.. Floyd would never have found his urge if fighters were like that were around today. In fact, he probably would’ve never even turned pro if he knew cats like them were on the prowl. Real talk. Hardly fair to compare him to men with balls though lol. Duran took on a beast named Iran ‘The Blade’ Barkely when he was long past his own prime.. Duran was in his late forties and he looked like a midget compared to the fearsomely hard punching, gargantuan framed boiled down heavyweight Barkley.. Come fight time, by the time Barkley had rehydrated he would’ve had at least 50-60lbs on Duran.. Can you imagine Floyd taking a risk like that? Duh! I don’t fink so somehow lol.

RCA..I would lean towards him fighting Bradley too, Timmy isn’t a big pincher, would be a low risk fight for Floyd. Only problem with that fight, is it won’t sell that well, and that doesn’t go along with Floyds ” if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense” BS. But, I bet his fans would justify it big time!

Oh…And, the Kid has a wicked over hand right, which, I believe, is what Shane caught Floyd with. I’m with everyone else on here, and believe the kid is a little green yet, and needs some work on defense, but I really think he’d have a much better shot at Floyd then most give him. Floyd is slowing down, and doesn’t move like he once did. I really think he’d have a hard time keeping Alverez off of him for the full 12. I see Canelo being to strong, and overpowering Floyd…It would be his only shot, he sure as hell wouldn’t out box him!

The Mad Scientist – Floyd boxes Canelo’s ears off. The kid isn’t ready, he has NOT been tested, he has NOT fought on the “big stage” and he’s never even been in the ring with a champ, let alone a P4P champ like Floyd. Canelo will fold under the bright lights.

Titopa…I wouldn’t be so sure about that… While it’s true that Canelo hasn’t fought the big names yet, but I really see Alverez as doing everything Cotto does, but better, and Cotto had some success against Floyd. Younger, faster, harder puncher, goes to the body better, throws wicked combinations to the body, and head..and upper cuts! Floyd will not fight this kid!!

Canelo will get totally outclassed by Floyd…he hasn’t even beaten a guy in the Top 10 of his division, now he wants the TOP DOG in the entire sport? hahaha! okay.

The Mad Scientist – Canelo would give Floyd his biggest payday?? Um. Think not. Pacquiao would and so far Oscar’s given him the biggest, not to mention, boxing’s highest grossing fight of all time.

The Mad Scientist

Unfortunately boxing is a business first and Canelo has the fanbase and the popularity to bring Floyd his biggest payday if he’s willing to risk his “0” at this point and stage of his career..Mayweather has always been a small welter at best who at 36 years of age has clearly slowed down quite a bit..so yes, Floyd would be taking a major risk against a natural 154lbs up and coming young fighter who seems to be strong, tough and durable with deceptive quickness and a respectable all around offensive arsenal..

Missed the post-fight spew but unless Garcia is thinking about moving up… Talking about moving up, Canelo stays at 154 forever? Doubt it. He’s headed to 160. Different fish there.

Lets SEE Canelo vs. Garcia.

C’mon Canelo. At least beat a CHAMP first. You could have taken on Cornelius Bundrage who is a CHAMP but instead you took on #0 P4P NON CHAMP Josesito Lopez. And now you want Mayweather and Cotto?? LMAO. ME TOO.

This dude hasn’t really fought anyone no one with real skills why should he get big names. Proof you’re your self first then call out the big dawg.and everyone keeps knocking Danny Garcia look at this bird forget money may forget cotto for now fight cause he will hand you your ass. Fight lara

Cotto and Pacquiao will whoop this kid hard. Floyd will toy with Canelo.

Canelo vs. Cotto on Cinco De Mayo has a nice ring to it but Miguel needs to get past Trout first which is no easy task.

Rubio – Ortiz is a Welterweight. The William fight would’ve been good though.

Cotto-Alvarez is a great fight. So is Mayweather-Alvarez, but to be honest I think Floyd would stop him.

This is part of the reason I can not wait for Floyd and Pacquiao to retire..all these young guys are not fighting who they’re suppose to these days because they’re all in line to get a shot at Pac/May after a good or decent win..

Posted October 23, 2012 10:53 am

In the same breath, he hasn’t said a word about NOT fighting someone. And he likes bucks.

Posted October 23, 2012 10:29 am 


From Detroit

Why all this speculation about Canelo vs Floyd? Has Floyd said one word about fighting ANYBODY?

Posted October 23, 2012 10:12 am

People slamming this kid for not having fought anyone should remember he intended to fight Williams and Ortiz, not his fault those matches didn’t take place. Best wishes to Williams in recovery.

FMJ will not fight this kid. He’s 36 years old!!! (that’s equates to 50 in Boxing years). If you think that FMJ at this point in his career will without a doubt out box Canelo then you’re fooling yourself. Be realitic…after a long layoff at 36 years old, lord knows what he has left in the tank. It’ll make a lot of money but it’s not a smart move. Canelo and Lara on the other hand…now that’s a fight I wanna see

Posted October 23, 2012 9:46 am 


TKO787

The reality of it is that Floyd isn’t the fighter he once was. He’s 36 years old now. To say that FMJ will without a doubt out box this young guy is ridiculous. Floyd doesn’t move like he used to and who knows how much he still has left. Father time catches up with everyone…specially boxers. At 36 and after a year long layoff…I like Canelo’s odds. But put Canelo in there with Lara and I have whole different prediction

Posted October 23, 2012 9:38 am 


SREDMOND

ON the flipside who knows if Mayweather will even fight at 154 again? Everyone knows he makes 147 with ease….

Posted October 23, 2012 9:02 am 


SREDMOND

Reality is that Floyd is going to be 36 in a few months so how much longer does Canelo want to wait??? Facing Floyd is a sweepstakes financially and if you are ready or not you take the fight and deal with the consequences… I am hoping that Mayweather is smart enough to fight till 37 max like he says he will then retires undefeated… No need to let your enemies celebrate father time doing what your opponents could NOT in your prime or anywhere close to it…

Posted October 23, 2012 9:01 am 


SREDMOND

Canelo is a terrific young talent but he would be seriously outboxed by FMJ… That said what is the crime in that?? Having a loss on your record to and undefeated 5 division Champion is nothing to be ashamed of…. Floyd is not the worst banger in boxing so he would learn something about the sport, make the BIGGEST check of his career and become that much more of a household name…

Posted October 23, 2012 8:58 am 


Vince

Mandatory should be met first. Absolutely. The BUT is boxing, and the straps and their lack of meaning. If Floyd and Canelo can agree a fight for springtime, which as mentioned is unlikely, definitely do it. I have them at 1 and 2 at the weight so of course they should fight. That attitude kinda gives the contenders a lack of respect but you’re just caught in a maze here. The titles are like these talent shows who find new ‘stars’ while the good musicians don’t get the deserved airplay and as a result music these days is f’in shyte. One weight, one champ.

Posted October 23, 2012 8:52 am 


Papo

Floyd will outbox Canelo; although Canelo has skills, fighting smaller or aging fighters as he has done so far hurts his experience, which is needed against a skill fighter like Floyd. I doubt Floyd would engage Canelo as he did Cotto. I think Mayweather will outbox him and that shouldn’t be too difficult against a fighter like Alvarez who likes to come forward and engage his opponent.

I would rather see Alvarez-Cotto…if Cotto does win his next fight. That would be a tremendous fight as both fighters have power and don’t mind engaging in a real fight. Another reason is that as Cotto’s career is coming to an end, he can’t afford to wait too long to fight a young fighter like Canelo. Better to fight him now where Canelo is still learning. Not that it’ll be an easy fight but Cotto has a lot of experience and can still fight at a high level.

Cutman

Alvarez will gain more fans and respect from a mayweather fight even if he loses to mayweather… Provided that he fights valiantly like cotto did.

Posted October 23, 2012 8:16 am

Finally Canelo’s people are willing to put him in there with a guy his own size… Oh, wait.

Posted October 23, 2012 8:01 am 


OCTAVIUS72

All I can say to Canelo and his people is…..LEARN HOW TO CRAWL BEFORE YOUR WALK!!!! Why should he even be granted those fights. Fight your mandatories first dude. What happens if he fights Mayweather and Mayweather blows him out of there. Talk about a blow to a young and promising career. I’ve seen this happen before. Look at Fernando Vargas career for instance. Young and moved along too fast. He was old before he was old. Do yourself a favor kid and just keep on fighting your mandatories and if those fights are meant to be; it will happen. Earn your strips first!!!!!

Posted October 23, 2012 7:59 am 


sigh

In summary: Alvarez’s promoters make a tacit admission they don’t want Lara going near him, whilst making noises about the big dogs in an effort to pretend otherwise.

Posted October 23, 2012 7:52 am 


ERE U YA DOYLE

I have a crazy random idea… now just bare with me a second…. here it is….

why doesnt the f*kin ginger tw4t fight someone top 10 in his own division first, instead of beating up career LWW’s and has beens before calling out these 2??

boxing may be a business but this is whats spoiling boxing, everyone just wats the big fights NOW….. no ones intrested in cleaning out their divisions or even remotely trying to win 2 belts in their division…. and that ladies and gentlemen, is whats spoiling boxing. where are the mega stars of the future gonna come from when no one holds them sort of credentials?? boxings screwed…. if arum doesnt kill it off all together, im sure this habit of jumping weightclasses just for that one’superfight’ will do it as well

Posted October 23, 2012 7:48 am 


Neil (pomy)

Mayweather is on a gradual decline. Still extremely formidable but looks more vulnerable than he once was. He is engaging more and moving less …. a sure sign that he he is starting to fade. His first defeat will come in the next 2 years; Alvarez, providing he keeps improving, could be the man to do it. He can match Floyd for hand-speed and his combinations are looking more and more impressive …. granted, Alvarez is a bit flat-footed but thats ok. HE has a big future.

When he HAS to move up to middle weight he is gonna get pummelled.

WTF???! I agree in relation to him fighting his mandatories but look at it this way if he fights Floyd and Floyd takes his belt off him (which he will) then he will get a kick up the ass that he needs and fight the guys in his division that are crying out for a fight! Everyones a winner ;)

Posted October 23, 2012 7:22 am 


WTF???!

Canelo went 12 rounds against smaller older 42 year old Mosely without ever backing him up, hurting him or landing anything meaningful.. basically a glorified sparring session for Mosely.. who was obviously holding back from hitting Canelo… Just look at How Danny Garcia handled Amir Khan and 35 year old Erik Morales and how Canelo handled 42 year old Geezer Mosely.. Canelo needs to fight his Belts Mandatory Cuban Lara and stop wasting Boxing Fans time…

Posted October 23, 2012 7:18 am 


WTF???!

Canelo just wants a huge Payday without paying his Dues.. he has fought no one.. he has beaten no one of substance that wasn’t over the hill, shot or smaller… he needs to get off of his ASS and take on his Mandatories, clean out his Division before he starts calling out any top Elite Fighter… Beating up Shot Cintron, or 140lb fellow Mexican Lopez is a joke.. all while avoiding his Gifted Belts Mandatory Cuban Lara, and ignoring the others at his true weight who are calling him out like Quintana, Rosado, Quillin… He won’t get a fight with either Cotto or Mayweather in 2013.. he’d better start looking for other Bums to continue wasting Boxing Fans times…

Yeah, and I want a Ferrari… LOL.. How about he take on his Belts Mandatory Cuban Erislandy Lara??? or the other young guys his age that are ranked and calling him out like Gabriel Rosado, Quillin, etc etc??? No, he wants to fight two naturally smaller older guys near the end of their Careers??? Take away this PrimaDonnas Belt.. it’s disgraceful…

Bring it on, dont get me wrong I like Canelo but he will literally get his ass handed to him by Mayweather

Canelo would lose 2 both, sugar Shane give him a bit of trouble I cant c how he could corner Floyd and he will eat jabs and straight rights all night. The Cotto fight would b a better fight but i still think Cotto wins if near his best

canelo hasnt fought ONE decent 154 pounder EVER NEVER NOT YET and now he wants a shot at the $$$$ or at least goldenshower does canelo has looked OK decent in beating ……nOT ONE RANKED 154er this shizzle is more annoying than the poop that goes back and forth between junior and pacman and there camps ………

Posted October 23, 2012 5:57 am 


Joseph Herron

Mick, win or lose Cotto will get a fight with Canelo long before Trout will.

Unless Trout really does a number on Cotto on December 1st, which isn’t out of the question, and becomes a huge star overnight, Golden Boy Promotions will most likely try put together a huge Mexico vs. Puerto Rico bout on May 4th if they can’t get Mayweather.

I can see Trout facing K9 Bundrage if he gets past Miguel Cotto on December 1st.

Posted October 23, 2012 5:46 am 


Mick the Marmalizer

Canelo’s got plenty of time on his hands & should honour the WBC #1 mandatory. Also what happens if Austin Trout beats Miguel Cotto in there upcoming WBA title fight? Canelo should steer clear of PBF for another 12 months, fight his mantatory + unifiy with Cotto or Trout next year. It’s also in his best interest to stay @ 154Lb & clean up the light-middleweight division before dipping his toe in the 160Lb water late next year. Along with Golovkin, Geale, Martinez, Barker, Quillin, Murray & Macklin Middleweight could be the 100% out standing division of 2013/14 & Alvarez could do worse then get involved in a super 6-8 tournament.

Posted October 23, 2012 5:27 am 


Joseph Herron

Most at Golden Boy Promotions feel that Canelo would actually have a very good chance of handing Floyd Jr. his first loss.

I don’t see why.

Although Canelo has looked like an absolute beast in his last several fights, he has not fought anyone even remotely close to the style and skill level of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Unless Floyd isn’t the same pre incarcerated version of Money May, I don’t see Canelo having a chance in this fight.

Honestly, I don’t see this fight getting past the negotiation stages.

I can see Canelo fighting Miguel Cotto on May 4th instead in a huge Mexico vs. Puerto Rico rivalry match. Regardless of the outcome on Dec 1st, I think Canelo will fight the winner of Lara/Martirosyan in late January and Cotto in May.

I can’t honestly can’t see Canelo agreeing to all of Floyd’s traditional pre-fight stipulations…if you know what I mean.

I like Alvarez and I think he can take Cotto now. Also, I wouldnt be suprised if in 18 months he become the first man to beat Floyd.

Posted October 23, 2012 4:38 am

More I think about it, still the same but closer. Mayweather disputable UD/MD/SD, probably by scores of something like: 120 – 108 twice, then 108 – 120.

Posted October 23, 2012 4:21 am 


The Mad Scientist

I say let the kid fight Mayweather if he wants..one would have to favor Floyd but I wouldn’t concern myself about Canelo taking any kind of serious career ending beating against Money..at worst I see Floyd outboxing him and maybe snapping the kids head a couple times with a few hard shots but that it..at best I see Canelo doing alot better than Cotto did against Mayweather and maybe even outworking Floyd at this point and stage for an upset decision win..

Posted October 23, 2012 4:17 am

“If Canelo has his way, he will fight Floyd Mayweather on May 4th of next year. That’s what his team wants and that’s the fight that he has wanted for the last eight months…’ Let Canelo have his way. I take the wife-beating megalomaniac to win as things stand though. Guess a few others feel the same according to this article.
