Canelo got rocked by a journeyman.
Atleast when Ward got in trouble with Darnell Boone he was more green in the pros than Alvarez was against Jose Cotto. It was his seventh pro fight.
Carl Thompson had genuine knockout power throughout his career, and was actually a test for David Haye, who was still on his way to stardom.
J.Cotto was essentially his first ''name'' on his list. Maybe they regarded him to his brother standards when they chose him, or maybe not.
Chop Chop lost a SD against Judah before fight Mayweather. He was and perhaps still is a very formidable opponent. So Chop Chop rocking Cotto means nothing in conjunction to my thread. Chop Chop gives anyone a tough fight.
And he can still hang with the Maidanas of this world btw.
