Anyone think Toney is lesser then Canelo in anyway?

    I would not compare Canelo to the other two. But with your limited boxing knowledge, you can't appreciate skills when seeing them

    Did you even watch the fight?

    I think it was more of a psychological issue than a physical one.

    Floyd should never have enforced that C-W.

    Floyd was the one that taught Canelo how to weight drain opponents, and how only a few pounds can make the other guy useless.

    He's definitely took over Floyd's playbook.

    True, but Canelo didn't have to take the fight. Even Oscar was saying that Canelo was in great shape & had no problem making weight.

    Pacquiao & Cotto did the same.

    It was the only way for Canelo to get the fight.

    Typical Floyd BS.

    He took the shine off of the win.

    He'd have gotten far more credit had he have let him weigh in at 154.

    Canelo won those fights. Save the conspiracy theories.

    Anyway, I was being nice. Let's not talk about Thadzi and Tiberi.

    I would ...all 3 are skilled boxer-punchers . All 3 have problems with slick boxers ... if that went over your head I’m sorry ,....and you don’t sound like a boxing expert by any means

    He didn't say Canelo lost. He said he had trouble with their slick styles, which is obviously true. No need to get defensive.

    My point is that they both struggle with slicksters ...

    I do not believe Canelo is quite on the level of Toney or Mc Callum. Now, you may agree or disagree with that, I do not care
