    I guess we might have seen the best of Canelo.

    Lies.

    Hoping Bivol and Benevidez both take losses until it's safe to come back.

    If he takes a year off, which would be a well earned break, he'll be a better version of himself next year than he is now. If he injured his wrist vs Plant (perhaps when he landed that big shot that hurt Plant) that could explain why he didn't look his best in his last 2 fights. He said something like with the wrist injury he couldn't train at full speed. Even a less than 100% Canelo is still a great fighter. A full year off though is probably a good idea at this point. He's been very active (6 fights in the last 20 months), he deserves a long break. Rest up, let the wrist heal properly. May 2023 at the earliest but probably Sept 2023 is more realistic. He'll come back rested and refreshed next year.

    Man that Benavidez fight needs to happen so y’all can shut the hell up! He might have power, but Canelo is much better in every other department.

    Nah. Benevidez is bigger. Younger. Just as fast. Great engine. Mean and enjoys hurting people.

    He passes the eye test no doubt, but I think he’s been untested at the elite level, although it’s probably not his fault.
    Him and Plant need to get it on in the meantime.

    Canelo taking a year off is probably the best thing that could happen for him. He's had a lot of fights back to back with minimal recovery time if that. He's been in decline lately and I think mostly all of it is due to sheer stress/milage. Taking a year off will give him a chance to recover, get a fresher style that's no longer stagnant and possibly fix some of his stamina issues.

    Canelo was blowing like a fat old sperm whale at the bell LOLNow the Ginger wussie is going to take a year off sorta retire claiming injury like Floyd's excuses to dodge the dangerous guys. Is he going to start beating women like Floyd too ????

    I agree, lol, but it’d be dope to see him fight canelos previous opponents so they can start setting up their fight.
