    They were world title holders. Benavidez is not.

    There’s no way your that dense, but sure, I’ll bite, lol.
    Those three fighters you mentioned were untested, and come fight night with Nelo, it showed. Two of them at least had belts so it’s not like they were just stay busy fights. I had zero problem with those. Benavidez is the #2 in the division and I would LOVE for that fight to happen, trust me. I’ve been calling for it for a while. Make that **** happen!!!!

    Sad that the Crowd these days is dead, though with this fight i don't blame them as much.

    People say this is good but I don't think so. I think Canelo will lose form from this. I think fighting regularly did someone of his celebrity good. This much time out the ring I think could potentially lead to some form loss at this age and with his lifestyle. But hope I'm wrong and it has a recouping effect.

    Exactly. Hes already on the decline. Healing an injury is always great but in the boxing game you have to be sharp, and 1 year out of the game tops, will definitely be an issue.

    I just want to see consistency. Can’t stand how some people will put up all these parameters for certain challengers but have no qualms about prior opposition just getting a chance without having proven themselves. No density here. Plenty of people here have given those fighters a pass without having faced any top tier competition but insist that Benavidez must beat this guy and that guy first. No idiot here guy, just checking the angles.

    Sleep well, little orange man. May you find deep restorative rest and tranquility with the nightingale cooing softly outside the window. Think not of that Benavidez lurking in your closet…he is only make-believe.

    No big deal. He is injured and needs surgery and rest. What this means is it gives all the guys at 168 a chance to fight each other and winner gets Canelo lottery.

    He's fought 6 times since 2020, I don't mind him taking a break, who else at this level has been that active? I respect it

    Let me backtrack real quick, lol, I DID have a problem with the Fielding fight, but not the fight itself, but because it was being billed as a title fight. No real boxing fan views the wba regular belt as anything more than a joke.
