    Canelo will most likely win on points. Another boost for Floyd Joy Sinclair's resume?

    Not really. The young Canelo, who had no amateur experience, had not yet reached his prime when he fought Floyd.

    And let's not forget, Floyd demanded a catch weight so he fought a drained Alvarez.

    It was actually Canelo who asked for the fight at 152 and Floyd said Ok.. It wasn't a demand...

    No, you're changing history.

    Floyd demanded the fight be at 152, Canelo and De La Hoya agreed.

    No because it's not Floyd beating him. Period.

    "But when the negotiations started, they wanted me to go to (147), and I said that's physically impossible, I can't do it. And then, they inched up to 150 and I said impossible, I can't do it, those days are over, I can't make that weight anymore, I've grown. And then they went up to 151."


    Finally, Alvarez said, he did offer to go to 152 so the fight could be finalized.

    "I'm the one that made the decision to go to 152," he said.

    Look it up.. He offered 152 because Floyd wanted less than that.. He could have forced it to 154 but was too lazy to fight for it...

    So Floyd at first demanded 147, Canelo said it's impossible, Floyd then demanded 150, Canelo said impossible, then Floyd demanded 151 - so finally Canelo reluctantly said 152 so the fight could be finalized, even though he knew he'd be drained at that weight.

    you are forgetting its only if he wins, AND only if it happens.

    Cansmello will likely run in gibbering fear.

    Floyd never fought anyone even near Kov`s level P4P.

    Name me a fighter who will have Kov`s reach and power advantage over Canelo that had those same advantages over Floyd, Corrales?
