    He beats all of them,uses Hamsho as a heavy bag,cuts Antuofermo to pieces ,stops Minter on cuts after 6rds,survives a couple of hairy moments from Sibbo, but out boxes him for a late tko. None were great middles.

    Canelo would stop Minter mid rounds imo, too much overall class.Minter was tough and a good fighter.
    Canelo is tough and might be a great one!

    He is very well schooled now.it will take a great fighter to beat him at level weights.

    Canelo has yet to beat a world level, natural MW in a convincing manner (come to think of it his record was the same at LMW) so don't know how anyone could confidently pick him to beat any of those guys but then again if the fight is in anyway close he gets the decision.

    His win over Jacobs was convincing

    How many ranked middles did Sibson and Graziano beat, let alone convincingly?

    Every time these “Canelo vs...” threads come up I have to laugh at all the information that never seems to be included. Is Canelo on clenbuterol? Has Oscar paid off at least one judge? Catch weight? If the answer to those questions three are yes, then Canelo has a good shot at losing yet another fight and getting a SD against anyone in history. If not he gets smoked. He’s a manufactured champion, DAZN has too much money tied up in him to not try and stack the deck in his favor.

    I like Saunders over Andrade too Bummy, and I'll be delighted when BJS humiliates and boxes the socks off of Canelo.

    BJS will fight easier fare trust me.He might attempt to take GGG now his decline is obvious,but he wanted no part of him when he was prime.Saunders likes to pick his spots.

    I like Saunders, despite him being somewhat of an ******* outside the ring....I see him as sort of a modern day Willie Pastrano.

    First off , terrific thread .. great ideas ..

    All four fights would be tough on both sides .. Canelo can fight , no question. The more I think about it the more I favor Canelo against all four but all fights are very tough .. Hamsho and Sibson were extremely strong and tough guys .. Minter was also extremely tough and a very clever boxer .. a lot of terrific fights here.

    If Saunders ever gets in the ring with Canelo,and I highly doubt he will, he is getting a beating.Canelo isn't some one dimensional slugger like Lemiuex ,he is a very well schooled boxer puncher, he will rip Saunders ribs out! There is a reason BJS fights second raters for the most part.

    Meh, fight was close, even the pro Canelo judges had it to SA by just a couple of points. I wouldn't call that a particularly convincing win over a guy who the true ATG MW's would have breezed through.
