    Poor Hops. He was the only one fighting at altitude and in the heat. :rolleyes:

    Alas, while I despise Canelo for many reasons, his skills ain't one of those reasons. Neither is his preparation. Canelo regularly prepares at high altitude and if he'd been in the ring instead of total mediocrity Mercado, he'd have stopped Hopkins in emphatic fashion. Yeah, I'm sure the heat will bother a guy from Mexico :lol: The average temperature in Guadalajara in summer is 90'F. :lol:

    :lol: Ya think Canelo would have needed 7 rounds to get rid of Mercado in a rematch? :D

    Canelo specializes in destroying mediocrities like that:



    He'd beat Hopkins too.

    Hopkins might not beat Lara and Trout and he'd lose to Golovkin.

    Maybe you havent seen Canelo fight lately.

    Do you mean the result of the fight or the result as scored by the judges? Canelo has had many gifts - never lost a close decision.

    Reality is Hopkins outboxes him.

    Canelo doesn't have judges. When he beat GGG, he beat GGG with Abel Sanchez's judges and Team GGG's referee. GGG stacked the deck against Canelo and Canelo still won. Even Sanchez said after the fight that he can't complain about the decision when he hand picked the judges and the ref lol.

    Bernard would 'son' Canelo. Canelo can't deal with movers or boxing that actually have a brain. BHOP like a big, dirty version of Floyd. Seriously he would 'own' Canelo.

    Canelo doesn't have fans, either.

    I'll write to Oscar to pay you extra so that you vote for ginger ;)

    Hopkins of course. Wouldn’t be close enough to rob him either.

    Bad style match up for Canelo. Canelo looks good vs guys that come to him like Angulo and GGG, give him a mover like Lara or Trout and he struggles.

    Hopkins wins a comfortable decision. Canelo is good enough not to be totally schooled and beat up and stopped late like Tito or Johnson but he isn't able to cut the ring off effectively enough to win enough rounds to win.

    Yes! Yes, you do! This is why you are whining this same mantra over and over from thread to thread. Not sure why you care? But, yes you do!

    Especially when the ref is nullifying your own knockdowns.

    Hopkins is no Floyd, Floyd had influence and ridiculous popularity to avoid getting shafted by the judges against Canelo, and despite this one judge still gave it a draw, Hopkins loses a Controversial decision. You cant beat Canelo through UD unless you yourself are an A side Diva.
