    168 is cleaned out
    He can drag up Charlo and Andrade that’s it from 160
    At 175 I think he runs into trouble size wise

    Charlo.
    Rosado if he beats his next guy.
    Lemieux.
    Golovkin 3.
    Benavides.

    Ya he's running out of genuine competition.

    Seems like he's one of the only fighters around his divisions with any genuine ambition, besides Rosado.

    Sucks there's not anyone else out there on a warpath to create a rivalry.

    Charlo and Andrade are too easy missions for Canelo. Canelo beats the crap out of both at the same night and I am not even kidding.

    Canelo's future should be:
    Zach Parker
    David Benavidez
    Artur Beterbiev
    Retirement

    Arthur ,is very strong. I don't think I would go there if I was Canelo.

    Golovkin is ancient. He shouldn't fight Canelo.

    Golovkin will get a 40th birthday surprise from Canelo.

    Beterbiev could handle him if he was an active fighter. But he's not. I think Canelo could out hustle him & win a decision. It's a fight that does present some danger though. Few others do.

    Benevidez at 168, then the Russians who are ESB'S fighters at 175. But nobody is beating Canelo, hes too ****ing good.

    Charlo and Andrade are too easy for him,Golovkin is old so a rematch would be a bad idea,I saw someone mention Rosado but the case is similar to Charlo and Andrade,the only one left is Benavidez,who would also get beaten up.The only logical thing would be a light heavyweight conquest,I would love to see Canelo working and beating opponents that are bigger and stronger than him,
    Canelo vs Bivol and Canelo vs Beterbiev would be amazing fights where both fighters have chance to win

    GGG rematch at 168lb would be good depending on how he looks against Murata. Andrade and Charlo would also have to move up. Benavidez is alright but he's not getting a title shot soon after losing it on scales, really he's a light heavy at this point.

    Which brings up the main question of whether Canelo does go to 175lb? If he does, he has Bivol, Smith Jr, Beterbiev and possibly Ramirez as the champs to beat. However, these are dangerous fights and Canelo could conceivably lose to anyone of these guys. Should he win a majority of fights there then he is, without a doubt, is the greatest of this era post Floyd-Manny-Ward.

    Or he could just stick to 168lb and fight the aforementioned fighters. If so he could conceivably stay champion for a long, long time as there are no real threats to Canelo at the Middleweight classes for the foreseeable future.

    And finally, there is the DREAM MATCH!!! Which is if Andre Ward comes out of retirement and finally gets his chance against a superstar boxer in a massive ppv spectacle. Both have thrown each other's names recently and there is definitely some tension here. How good of a legacy defining win it would be for Canelo depends on how much credit you would give to beating Ward after years out of the ring...but he was p4p king when he retired undefeated so....

    Dragging up Andrade and Charlo is pointless as there not good to be considered.

    Benevidez is Ok title defence but has an extremely slim chance against Canelo.

    The only two that could beat Canelo are Bivol and Beterbiev at LHW.

    Benavidez is the fight at 168. Beterbiev and Bivol at 175. If he goes through those three (big "if") then it's hard to see what's next. Perhaps beating the **** out of one of the Logan brothers for laughs.

    AT SMW there's Benavidez, Dirrell and CEJ that would be worthwhile fights and would help secure his legacy there.

    Which would not be too bad a thing, his legacy at LMW is a bit shaky because some of his best fights were razor close or above the limit. His legacy at MW is clouded by the first Golovkin fight and his short stay there. His legacy at SMW is pretty solid though.

    Failing that I'd be interested seeing him at LHW against Ramirez, Smith Jr, Beterbiev and Bivol. Hopefully with Bivol being first.
