I personally voted between c & d

he fought someone his size for the first time last fight and barely won. in 3 years he will be to big for 160 and I don't see him being able to really compete at that weight.

and although trouts victory over cotto was good. Trout was even to big for cotto IMO

Right now he is around C or D class.

He has fought D and F level fighters that weren't his size. And he had gotten a few gifted stoppages in the past years, Jose cotto and gomez. But he was going to win those fights anyways.

Jermain Taylor had Hall of Fame potential, A class. He beat Hopkins twice when he was at the peak of his whole career.

Umm if Canelo being a C & D in your mind is indeed the truth that you believe whats that say about Floyd should canelo pull off the upset?

if there was any chance (which i don't think there is) that canelo wins. It will be due to floyd being old. Canelo imo is in a no win situation really. he shouldn't beat floyd.

of course you guys will have that excuse to fall back on which is whats ****ty about Floyd manning up so late in his career.

if it happens we cant argue its his age he hasnt shown any signs of slowing down or getting older. with that said if Canelo wins its because he was the better man that night.
