    I don't have a problem with what Saunders is saying. He got stiffed on the purse and he got stiffed by not having an English judge at ringside which appears to be a contractual clause.

    He needs to take this opportunity to shine and to channel his anger into outslicking and outboxing Canelo. If he makes Canelo look silly and still loses the decision then the fix will be obvious. If Saunders has trained as hard as he says he has, I think he has the talent to give Canelo a very hairy time. He's certainly a much better challenge than the ghost of Kovalev or all the SMW stiffs that Canelo has been knocking over.

    Lil G did not beat Canelo and the fact Lil G fan boys and girls on this forum think so does not make it so. The history books show they fought twice and Canelo won. Juan Manuel Marquez beat in the opinion of many of us Pacquiao every time they fought yet it did not go his way on the scorecards. In the final fight he knew he needed to do something different and he did he cleaned Pacquiao’s clock. That’s the correct mentality. Saunders is mentally weak.

    Like I said if the contract says there has to be an English judge enforce it don’t ***** about it. What will be the excuse when Canelo knocks him out?

    I don't even know if that was it necessarily - I think he is just that lacking in mental discipline that being put on the spot caused him to completely and spontaneously implode and lose his cool like an impetuous child. That kind of fragility isn't really a sign of a sturdy heart.

    It wasn't one-sided outside of a couple of rounds. The first 6 rounds were extremely close. According to Compubox, the # of power punches landed were pretty even. Mayweather won because he landed more jabs. If it was so one-sided, then why did the other judges have it relatively close? I mean, be outraged by the 114-114 till the cows come home, but the two other judges had it 8-4 & 9-3. Those are not scores that you'd associate with a one-sided fight. Floyd had plenty of one sided fights. When he beat JMM, that was one-sided. Mayweather vs Mosley was one-sided aside from the 2nd round. But Canelo clearly did much better and actually fought Mayweather close in most rounds.

    It's just a myth to continue to perpetuate the idea that Mayweather Canelo was one-sided. It was a great performance by Mayweather and he clearly won the match, but lets not get carried away. Canelo fought well and gave Mayweather a tough 12 rounds.

    Sounds to me like you just don't like Canelo or credit his performances fairly. Canelo fought a very intelligent fight vs GGG the first time. Rounds 1-4 & 10-12 were great Canelo rounds. Rounds 5 & 6 were close as well. Claiming that is a robbery is major Drama Queen territory.

    You are entitled to your opinions all of you including @Shadow, @CST80 etc. Having opinions does not make any of us right necessarily the fight itself and how it plays out will let us know. I have a clear vision of what will transpire. I am not usually wrong on these things but certainly I am not infallible.

    Yes you're right. GGG didn't beat Canelo because he was robbed. Thats what a robbery is, a win that got taken away from you by corrupt or at least incompetent judges and that is what Saunders is worried about. You're an idiot. You wouldn't be singing this tune if Canelo was the one that got robbed of his win.

    There is no one singular correct mentality in the ring. That's delusional. There is nothing wrong with respecting the strengths of you fighter and that is what Saunders is planning on doing. To box and move. And there is nothing wrong with that. Mentally weak my ass. You're biased as hell. And I'm not on Saunders side. I legit think Canelo is going to beat Saunders

    Mayweather absolutely schooled Clenelo. No part of that fight was competitive. Clen mentally quit that night.

    Anyways, BJS will NOT knockout Clen and the decision is already cast at 118-110 or 119-109 across the board.

    I'll watch the fight for curiosity because I still have DAZN. I'll be surprised if BJS quits (despite his erratic mental state, I don't think these Travellers will quit in the ring..) and if he slicks out a win everyone will know.

    No. GGG beat him convincingly in my eyes and Mayweather schooled him. You can see the GGG fight was very close if you want, sure thing. But GGG should have been the one who got the majority decision

    There is a real possibility BJS will quit when he is deep waters.

    If he finds himself in a hole, let's say five clear rounds lost through seven - and Canelo is physically imposing himself - yeah, he's outtie. He knows as well as the rest of us do that he doesn't really have a bail-out puncher's chance.

    I could even see him pulling a Golota to save face and throwing some intentional nut shots.

    I think you are the idiot because you cannot accept the truth that Canelo is better than Lil G. When Canelo lost a fight or was awarded a draw we did not see him cry like a ****ing ***** about it. He can run if he wants or try whatever he wants, Canelo will find him and close the show like night follows day.
