    Great job Rummy.
    In my view his “signature Win” has to be Krusher at 175. Only a few have made that jump and even with Krusher being damaged from his previous fight the books will just have that, if at all, as a footnote.

    Respect to Big Red for going 24 rounds with GGG even if the outcome will be debated as highly as Sugar and Marvin for the history of the sport.

    Canelo does not belong at 175 IMO but just the fact he went up and came back with a title makes his a wise and crafty guy.
    Love him or hate him, Canelo is the face of BOXING

    Thomas Hearns made an even bigger jump from 147-175 pounds.

    There's an old proverb that springs to mind.
    ''The path to greatness will not be smooth, especially if you load it with needle marks.''

    GGG is Canelo's Signature Win. And if we're honest, he did it twice vs the G Man. Rums made a great video, but is still in denial about what Canelo did to Mr G. That's OK Rums, that's common problem around here. :taptap::sisi1

    Canelos most impressive win is Kovalev but the fight that will be remembered and talked about the most is the second GGG fight I rewatched that the other day and man every rewatch that fight gets better it's definitely gonna be remembered as a truly great fight just non stop high-level action for 12 rounds.I feel that the Callum Smith fight will age well too. Smith was the consensus number 1 fighter in the division and there were only 3 arguably close rounds in that fight and Smith had to go into survival mode for rounds 9-12 and was nearly stopped.

    Yes but he was never a world champion at Welterweight like the great Thomas Hearns.

    Great video, probably one of your best.

    Canelo has improved massively, and he does look almost unbeatable atm.
    His IQ, ring craft, strength, and shot selection is amazing. His legacy has doubled or tripled over the last 4-5 years.

    But not mentioning a failed PED test is a big black spot for the video, and Canelos legacy ledger.

    He puts a lot of pressure on his opponent simply by advancing towards him in small steps before unleashing terrifying attacks with his fast hands. If you add he has also a steel made chin you can get his boxing is very impressive.

    Good video Rumsfeld!! You made great points as always.

    However despite the second GGG fight being close most feel Canelo won, including some very high profile names in boxing, so imo that is his signature win, and even without that win he's carved out a nice legacy so far by beating the best between 154-168.

    Unfortunately there aren't many names right now that can get him another signature win other than Charlo and 160 and Beterbieve at 175.

    He never in his life had in the ring G Man. G Man was Gerald. :p

    Common problem are posters like you and your:nonono clones.;) While I think you are nice lad, this sometimes is too much annoying.
