This is the route Canelo would rather go. If he's going to be beaten, it's going to be for a very good payday. Nothing wrong with that, just vacate the title and let the contenders fight for it. Since he has no intention on fighting any of them.
Well said. A successful boxing career is a marathon, not a sprint.
