    Clenelo was drained. That's why his face was all bruised and lumped up. His face didn't even register damage against anyone else.

    With the unintended side affect of real beard hairs coming in.

    He selects punches and targets anatomy with real purpose, and he's precise.

    And, yeah, his S&C is tailored to maximize the explosive force behind his shots.

    Put those factors together and you get an increasingly poisonous puncher, despite his not being an outright banger.

    And the judges are set-up to afford him the luxury of taking his time to find the right shots.

    In fairness to Canelo, strength development continues into your 30s. But yeah, it is still a little suspicious

    Probably because Floyd was hitting him accurately and flush that’s why his face was bruised and lumped up. He was not drained he lost.

    He’s at a healthy weight, not drained, built up muscle, and in his physical prime.

    Negative. Floyd wasn't hitting him that much. And the guys that Floyd hits a lot don't look the way Clenelo did.

    When your body is drawn and drained, you bruise easily.

    :lol:

    Adding strength with ped can help a boxer. It’s the same damn concept as strength to a baseball slugger. What was once a pop fly ball to the outfield is now a home run. For a boxer , adding strength to your punching power can result in more KO.

    what ped can not do for you is make you a better boxer.

    If you see Canelo train he spends a lot of time focusing on one punch. You see him drilling the heavy bag with left hook after left hook or on the big round pad smashing it with the right hand. I also think that Canelo learns things from his opponents as GGG does the same thing working on his power shots and Canelo has taken a few things from Mayweathers game as well. So he has learned things from the two best fighters he has faced.

    I think people also forget that Canelo was trying to be a slick boxer from the outside early in his career. He was trying to outbox Mayweather :shakehead:. The style worked okay for him, but he reached the limits of that style at 160 given his height, reach, and slow feet. Now he is a defensively sound forward moving counter puncher. He actually goes to the body and cuts off the ring! This is the classic Mexican style and he's very good at it! The style change allows him to sit and dig into his punches a lot better than the outboxer style.
