Canelo is still fighting junior welterweights lol!
I am not saying I encourage this match making from GBP but the comparisons are there with PBFs early career. Except Canelo is probably even more popular than PBF was at 22. I always hated that Canelo got that belt so early. He is still only 22 and he is being pushed along at the right rate for his age. The belt is what gives people ammunition. I think Canelo can be one of the greats but the way things are shaping up he is starting to lose fans due to his gifted belt and his normal progression for a prospect. I say normal because it is normal for a 22 year old to be fighting the type of fighters Canelo has fought.
It's all about the belt.
