    Anyone who thinks Saunders can beat Canelo is tripping hard.

    BJS will get cut off as well and without being able to punch back hard he will get destroyed. Light HW is the only way I see Canelo losing again.

    Benavidez would let his hands go. That would be a tough fight.

    Charlo at 160 would be interesting too.

    Gypsy fighters are cowards who work the system. Running from defences and stacking things in their favour. Respect to Callum Smith for being a proper champion and man to defend on 4 weeks notice.

    Not Smiths biggest fan, but can not doth my cap to him anymore. He was a zombie from the first bell. Canelo gave him four weeks he should be f*cking embarrassed not celebratory.

    Let’s hope Andre comes out of retirement and puts a beating on this juiced up weight bullying fraud.

    Not impressed

    That panned out exactly how I expected it to. I thought Canelo would get the stoppage in the championship rounds so credit to Callum for surviving that barrage.

    The height and reach mean nothing if the opponent has the defensive skill, footwork and upper body movement that Canelo has. He did not respect Smith’s power at all. Rather than knocking Smith I think we have to acknowledge what an elite level fighter Canelo is. He’s absolutely fantastic to watch.

    Canelo would outclass and stop Saunders no problem imo.

    I agree mate. These are saying Canelo was doing something unbelievably clever when Smith threw shots he wasn’t.... he didn’t have to though as you say Smith was a zombie from minute one. Canelo didn’t have to be anything above average for him.

    It was a poor performance, way down on the list of former Canelo foe's.

    Just to add, I agree about Canelo busting BJS up. It would be an easy nights work. Saunders would get stopped. Levels.
