    Got to bear in mind that at super middle Canelo will be juiced to the gills and a beast. BJS is only fighting at Super middle because he’s lazy and it was an easy world title. I’d give him more chance at middle but I’d still rate his chances as slim.

    I rate BJS but he’s not in Canelo’s league. Even his cheating isn’t as good...nasal spray...pah

    Post Clen Alvarez had a fight at middleweight and then went up to 168 and 175, with a fight at 160 inbetween, after years of 147 and catchweight fights, weight bullying on Clen, he's added the necessary muscle on now over time and has to fight at higher weights without the aid of such a substance to shed the water required to make 147, 154 or 160. I know I've mentioned this in a few threads of late but it simply can't be ignored. Who the hell bounces around weight classes like that in such a short space of time?

    It’s not even a secret that he’s cheating.

    BJS can box a bit but F me he is overrated. Canelo would play with him.

    Sorry but did canelo play with golovkin and Jacobs??? Billy Joe Saunders it a better boxer than both if them , ok he doesn't have golovkin power but he is a more skilled fighter . Golovkin beat canelo first fight. This will be far closer than people think if it was at middleweight I would favour BJ's even more tbh

    He’s had far more close wins against non-elite opponents (Akavov, Eubank, Lee, Ryder) than he has dominant wins against similar opposition (basically the Lemieux fight) that I don’t get why anyone would suggest Lemieux wasn’t the anomaly.

    People keep talking about Saunders fighting to the level of his opponent, but I don’t see much evidence of it. I’m really not sure Lemieux is any better than the likes of Lee and Eubank were and it’s hardly like Saunders beat them by miles.

    Canelo either breaks him down late and stops him or wins with cards on the 117-111 level.

    Because of how GGG was promoted these idiots dont actually see he is a highly skilled boxer. The fact he also had huge power on top of that was just amazing.

    If you're a big puncher and/or have an iron jaw you're immediately dismissed by some as being less skilful than the guy who barely stops anyone, regardless of skill. It's an oddity which makes little sense but I guess people like to think of things in black and white.

    Golovkin was just as dominant as Saunders against Lemieux; he just had the power to stop him.

    It's how the fighter gets marketed but as you say it is odd that fans can't see that boxer as anything else.

    I'm not denying golovkin has had a great amateur and professional but golovkin would have lost many fights if it wasn't for his power that's a fact!! On pure boxing terms imo Saunders is the better technician
