    I love Vinny Pazienza but this is a mismatch. Paz only moved up to 154 and 160 when he could no longer compete at the lower weights and Alvarez was a king in those divisions by comparison. He’s a few calibers higher in general as a fighter. Nothing against vinny. He was tough, brave, and exciting to watch with a colorful personality. But he’s out of his league

    Though I'm not as impressed about Canelo Alvarez as some posters here are. He should
    be able to defeat Paz after adjusting to his hand and foot speed the 1st 3-4 rds.
    Alvarez by late stoppage or UD, esp in Vegas, where he could lose and still win.

    Let’s do Canelo v. Dana Rosenblatt next. Televised on Friday Night Fights at a casino in Massachusetts.

    the Bookies win with safe odds out, No Money return on a Canelo bet...

    but, I just think it might not be as one sided as your first instinct!

    I think this could be an interesting fight, on a £100 pounds to throw away bet.

    Anyone else?

    The only similarity is the chunky muscular physiques...canelo massacres paz in 3 or 4 with his sharp counters especially the post GGG1 Canelo....if its at 154...paz could take it to points if he boxed

    Paz had fast hands and feet,stamina and heart...could box move well and attack too...but 1 of the worst boxing IQ"s imo and poor power

    I would have to agree and say Canelo would be too much for Paz.

    I admired Pazienza's grit, but it's Canelo all day long.

    Vinny may win if Fraudnelo gets the runs after consuming some of that famous Mexican meat.

    This is a troll thread.
    Paz went life and death with a 45 year old Roberto Duran, that should tell you righ there who wins between him and Canelo.

    It's true Paz was tough, always in shape, and could move around the ring pretty well. Only problem is, whenever he stepped up against the better ones, he usually lost. Canelo is a strong guy with power, I can't see Paz outboxing him. I see Paz moving all over the place, grabbing the top rope, sticking out his tongue, (in his usual cocky form), but not doing enough scoring to win this. Had Paz had a punch, he would have fared better against the better fighters he lost to.

    a "Troll Thread", how old are you man...

    if you read the OP, you'd have read that in the 1st instance the Thread stated that Canelo reminded me of Paz. and in that they are both around the same size, where they "hypothetically" COULD meet at either side of 160 lbs... it could be a good & interesting fight.

    WTF is wrong with people these days... it is simply an Observation which stemmed a Hypothetical Mythical Match Up Question.

    that's it,

    Troll, how many decent sensible people even Think about Trolling, never mind do it... You are of the WRONG Generation or influenced by them too even suggest such a thing. Once upon a time people USED to Talk, Think, Imagine, Discuss and Reason.

    that is it.
