You mentioned in another thread that you live in Sinaloa, and you are known to be a huge Chavez Jr. nutrider, so I'm not surprised you don't like Canelo.
actually, i dont really hate canelo but detest the trolls on here that actually taunt and degrade the forums like Doc. i dislike canelo because hes a bully and has arguably held captive the wbc belt when he shouldve fought at least someone the caliber of molina, a solid jmw. ryan rhodes as your best win in the last two years as a wbc champion is a disgrace to the sport. as for canelo being a superstar here thats simply not true as you dont see him on the tele, noticias or novellas.
im not a jcc jr "nutrider" as i actually had an action play on andy lee and had jr. against zbik at -400 and swore that i would never bet on jr. again after that performance. jr. has come a long way in the last year and a half and to be honest, is not really looked up to here even in sinaloa but far moreso than canelo.
mma actually garners more attention than boxing in the three different estados ive lived at here in mexico.
there will be plenty of seats available tommorow for cotto/trout in my favorite sportsbar whereas it was standing room only for gsp/condit.
thanks for the word "pendejadas." had to look that up.
fwiw, im not Mexican.
