Default Re: When mayweather destroys canelo he should be ranked higher than ali/SRR

Everyone has doubts, I think. I'd figured they'd do one more event with Canelo as the co-feature and let the berry get a little more juicy and ripe, followed possibly by a September fight after Floyd got some ring work tooling around Guerrero. He alledgedly doesn't want to wait. Pacquiao just got brutally KTFO and humiliated -- Mayweather jumping right into a fight with one of the most dangerous guys in his vicinity is a bold ****ing move. Too bold.

Exactly why I'm skeptical. Does that sound like Floyd to you?

Post-DLH, no. I wouldn't want to **** up my stream of $30-45 million paydays either, though. Mosley and Cotto were still good wins -- Nobody was complaining about him fighting Shane Mosley. Most thought he wouldn't take that challenge, period. That's basically irrefutable and we can dig up the articles and threads.

Canelo is the biggest non-Pacquiao pay day out there for him, and it's delivered without the slightest hesitation or problem. If he wants it.

What makes you guys think Canelo is better than Cotto? Because Trout who'd I'd pick to whip Canelos ass beat him? Because Mayweather struggled with DLH another guy is pick to whip Canelos ass?

Lol its a good fight. But I wouldn't be so quick to think Oscar is ready to send his young lion to the Mayweather school of boxing yet.

Well he can always fight Trout, oh wait he put on his speedy Gonzalez shoes when Trout called his ass out.

Yeah Canelo has no problem fighting FLoyd or Martinez but he's afraid of Trout

In all seriousness, what was the point of this thread? If anything, Pacquiao gets a lot of undue adulation.

I've previously said he's a top 20 ATG with room to go up or slightly down. He's a top 30 for sure, I'll say.

Barrera is one of the if not the best win of the decade. Cotto, Hatton, Sasakul, and Ledwaba are great wins. The Morales and Marquez rivalries are legendary, overrated or underrated as people see them. The insane weight jumping to wrap it up. His legacy is secure and well known.

Great fighter. But he's not what most people think he is. If the avg Pac fan gives him a 10 out of 10, he's more like a 7.5 or 8 in my book. Good guy. Terrible fans. Most of them want him to rematch JMM asap. That tells me they care more about winning/reconstructing their image than Manny's health.

Haters , who else? Why do you care what ppl on an internet forum think anyway. History will decide how Pacquiao looks, and he'll be rembered as one of the greatest. If anything this 4th fight just made him more legendary, imo. This is one of the greatest modern fights which will be remembered for a long time.

I gave Pac his dues before he even ventured north of 135.
