Default rehydration for Mayweather vs canelo

Is this fight really a catchweight seeing that Canelo can rehydrate back up to 160+? This fight is big only if Canelo wins, but if Mayweather wins what will they public say or ask for next?

Most people will then want to see Mayweather versus the Garcia/Matthysse winner.

CATCH didn't wanna fight Cotto at a catchweight like Pacman did. Money didn't wanna drain Cotto. Catchy Mo' Catch still considered Cotto an undefeated fighter. Catchy Catch didn't want no catchweight up in here up in here, ya'll goin make Floyd act a fool up in here up in here.

I think you forgot an option in the poll:

□ Excellent
□ Very Good
Good
□ Average
□ Poor

But the 152 clearly shows that the weight was negotiated over, and the 2lbs shouldn't trouble Alvarez very much. Floyd just didn't get him as low as he wanted.

All of you who talk trash over this catch weight are hypocrites. No one seems to care or acknowledge that Alvarez will be 15lbs heavier fight night. Saying Alvarez will be drained is just preping an excuse for him being outclassed. Floyd will probably not rehydrate even a pound. He is not walking around at 170 lbs like Alvarez. The fact is Floyd is going to fight a middleweight when he will weigh maybe 153.
Look at the ward vs dawson fight. Dawson droped down to 168 to fight Ward and got schooled. If the fight had been at 173 (2 lbs under lightheavy) we would have given Ward more or less credit for the win?
Point is floyd could have demanded the fight be at 147. He is the man, he is giving Alvarez his biggest payday,opportunity, and most viewed event. Yet all the Floyd haters think he should do Alvarez even more favors and fight at 154, so Floyd has to gain weight that he does not have. Floyd is not a 154 fighter and he is for DAMN sure not 165 or 170 like Alvarez.

Somewhere between average and very good. Trout touched him. Mayweather will connect constantly. If Canelo does that shucking and jiving stuff in the ring with Money, he'll try to embarrass Canelo.

He showed amaZing defense in the trout fight vs a taller reachier fighter (yes reachier is now a word)

Slipping the jab very well in order to get inside.

If there was an option between average and very good id vote that but its certinly above average (so i voted very good)
