Default Canelo deserves Respect

He deserves major props for fighting Lara, i had him the winner in a close tough fight, he took on a guy nobody else at 154 wanted any part of, took a fight that is a terrible stylistic matchup for him after loosing so wide to Mayweather doubts must have been in the back of his mind. Canelo is a massive draw outside of Mayweather or Pacquiao he can call the shots against anyone and fight whoever he wants, he took the hardest fight out their. Do i think he will ever be an ATG, honestly no but one things for sure he will test himself and give us the fights we want, People need to give the kid respect i think the hate comes from him being such a draw and preseved as pampered, he's proved that wrong he took the fight with Trout after he dominated Cotto, fought Mayweather at 152 draining himself badly, then fights Lara. Time for people to stop hating on the kid he takes the hard fights and gives the fans what they want.

I agree.

Took a very hard fight he didn't need to take, won an indeterminate fight that could have gone either way. He deserves congratulations, not whining. I scored it a draw, the SD is a true reflection of the fight.

This is not about Bradley. This is about giving Canelo his just dues after having fought the most feared fighters at 154 in Trout, Mayweather, Angulo, Lara, and had sent Kirklad an offer after Ortiz lost to Josesito.

Canelo is a fighters fighter.

Agreed. Win, lose or draw he deserves massive credit. He is a true people's champion like his promoter Oscar, Ali, Leonard, Holyfield, Mosley, and many other greats. Floyd would have ducked Lara like Shaq getting into a Smart car.

He's actually been the favorite in every fight except the Mayweather fight. None the less, he's been fighting good comp.

Much respect but he needs to fine tune his skills if he keeps going this route before he gets exposed again

As a fighter he deserves respect

But he needs to hope he doesn't turn into a diva

In fairness to Bradley, he didn't have the clout to get those sort of fights at 23.

Only fighter to "Exposed" him was Mayweather and that could had been because he was drained or Mayweather is just soo good. That's the only fighter I pick over Canelo at 154 and that says a lot.

I can still remember the amount of people on this site saying that "GBP will never allow him fight anyone" "Hes just a hype job with a padded record"

How many guys out there have fought the level of comp hes fought before the age of 24?

Lara exposed his lousy footwork and Trout also exposed him as well
