    I need to search the link, but I remember some ringside interview of Dmitry where he was mocking Ukrainians. Yes, Hrunov is really bad and he makes his fighters look in bad light. Povetkin, for example, is geniunely good person, he never ever said something bad about Ukraine or Ukrainians but many people in Ukraine hate him because of Hrunov's antics

    Any examples of such? Are you basically saying they think it belongs to Russia still?

    Canelo is an excellent and top quality finisher. Several of his moves kind of remind me to Steve Fox in Tekken game.

    My favorite :
    1. vs Amir Khan (Eagle Claw / ff+2)
    Ruthless and deadly lightning quick chopping right counter

    2. vs Alfredo Angulo (Sonic Fang / df1+2 )
    Deception into clean uppercut

    Definitely. I would say its on equal terms to Kirkland, especially because it was so dramatic.

    I dont have alot of love for Canelo because I always feel he has had some kind of advantage in his big fights. I thought he got beaten in the GGG fights.

    However I watched a George Foreman interview the other day and he mentioned how Canelo is his favorite fighter because he constantly works hard and improves. George has forgotton more than any of us will ever know about this sport.

    So I gotta give Canelo credit for his hard work and constantly improving his craft.

    ive said it before, canelo is a study in fighter development. im sure a few other trainers map that development in their fighters similarly, but a lot of things have to click. you need a fighter with talent, heart, durability, and a drive for improvement. you get that, you can build an elite.
