    Canelo has a size advantage but nothing ridiculous, Crawford’s the same height with a 3” reach advantage, and can fill out more going up to 160. He definitely has the skills to potentially negate the size difference.

    Stylistically the match up favors Crawford, Canelo struggles most against guys that can box and counter well off the backfoot. GGG found himself having to adapt to this style in the rematch but he’s naturally a come forward fighter. Crawford is much more effective going backwards and has a big handspeed and reach advantage over GGG. Canelo might break Crawford down and stop him late, but I can also see Crawford outboxing him pretty comfortably over 12.

    He wouldn’t be able to land enough to break down and stop crawford.
    I’d favor Crawford no matter what peds canelo used or no matter how they wrapped his hands.

    Id argue Crawford is on just as much juice as Canelo, I doubt any two other fighters in the sport are currently as juiced up as those two. Crawford was fighting at lightweight at age 26 and back then couldnt even KO Bredis Prescott, Ricky Burns, Raymundo Beltran, or Andrey Klimov but now hes walking around at 175-plus and transformed into a legit top 2 p4p fighter over night all while growing at a massive clip after he already physically peaked and his power has shot through the roof and his speed has even improved. Nah, fake bag of drugs dude, I'm all set. Just doesnt work like that.

    How do you compare their respective performances against Khan and come to the conclusion Crawford has no chance against Canelo. Lara? Trout? Crawford is a more complete and better fighter than either of those guys.

    Lol your evidence that he juiced is that he's heavier at 32 than he was at 26?

    He couldnt even KO Ricky Burns in his physical prime but in his 30's has put on about 25 lbs. Of lean muscle, gotten faster, and has become a much harder puncher and just made a fool out of Burns far superior countryman Amir Khan? Ya I hear ya.

    When you drain yourself to get that low in weight you don’t have as much power, stamina, or chin sometimes. Who cares, he beat the fcuk out of burns.

    He went from 135 to 147 and put on 25lbs of lean muscle? Can you expand on this a little?

    Crawford seems like a talent, but people are getting way ahead of themselves. Crawford still hasn't beaten any A level opposition. What is his best win? Horn? Postol? His resume is laughable. He's faced nobody of Canelo's level, and Canelo would have a sizable weight advantage. Crawford may get KO'd.

    Canelo has to land a punch to ko him. I’m not talking air/arm/glove and phantom body shots like he did vs lara.......

    This is a better Canelo than the one that fought Lara. This current old Lara would be a tough fight for Crawford.
