Good, competitive fight. Canelo certainly looked the better fighter in there, but he's clearly just lackadaisical at times. He'll probably always give up rounds on volume alone when fighting other top guys. It's almost as if he really wants to be a Mayweather-esque mover & defender, even if he'd probably be overall more effective as a committed pressure fighter. Seemed a bit overconfident at times, too, but that stupid beyond stupid decision to tell the corners the scores after rounds probably had something to do with that. I became more of a fan of Trout as well. Good, brave fighter, seems a genuinely good person.


Anyway, I'm fairly impressed with Canelo. Nice skills, physically strong, quick hands, good puncher, chin seems excellent, etc. All that and he's still just 22. Bastard's only a year older than me.

Yeah, he's pretty sound from a technical point of view.

Heavy-handed, solid defense.

I don't know about his chin though.

Workrate is definitely his biggest weakness - makes weight-drained 140 pound Cotto look like Pryor.

It's his first big fight and first step up in class - he's still a work in progress - so it will be interesting to see what he learned from Trout's fight.

Did you see how much they weighed going into the fight? That tells me it would be Spinks or Qawi you need to fight these 'Junior Middleweights'.

Floyd was 148 lbs 30 days out from May 4th. Would you root for him against the LHW Alvarez?
