Default Is Canelo Alvarez a hypejob?

I dunno about this guy. His defense is questionable at times.

He did well to stay up there to be fair.

He's got zero chance against Floyd if they fight.

This time next year we will have our answer.
My opinion of this kid is... He is the future of this sport.
(^Mid to lower weight classes)

2013 will be his year.

No.

He might not be as good as some think he is, but he's absolutely no hypejob.
I like the kid and expect him to make the P4P top10 at least (wich isn't easy when your not of American decent).

Let's hope he becomes the most dominant 154 lbs champ in the history of the sport after Floyd takes a UD over him.

Yes and no

I don't think his skills (or victories) have warranted the 154 champ belt (not that belts really matter), and his level of opposition definitely hasn't warranted the hype he's generated

Having said that, he is obviously skilled, good offensive fighter with a lot of power, good combinations and real physical strength

Lets hope Mayweather fights him first before we give May a credit UD.
