    He's over rated in that he doesn't have the resume for his backers to hype him like they do.

    i dont think he is overrated or underrated, he is just rated and we are all looking forward to finding out more about him.

    He's elite on his day IMO, but he's pretty inconsistent.

    Don't agree if saunders is at his best he outboxes Canelo IMO, wouldn't get the decision though obviously.

    Eubank Jr also lost to Groves btw, but apart from that I agree with your statements.

    Yes and no I guess. He's underrated by some, overrated by others. He clearly has the talent to reach the top and has proven himself against good opposition in Ryder, Eubank Jr, Lemieux and Lee so there's not much doubting his ability. His main downfall is a lack of work ethic and mental toughness that urges him to push on for 12 rounds ruthlessly.

    Yeah but that was up at 168 though. BJS 2.0 or to be more precise BJS 1.0 who only trained on public holidays and who was on a 365 day a year junk food diet is the only MW in the history of professional boxing to beat him.

    Well I'd like to see a rematch between those two at 168 come to think of it. WBO/IBO unification anyone?

    idk man a year ago i would of believed u , hell tow years ago i would of agreed with you. its just i feel bjs isnt on canelos level overall IQ and stuff


    the only guys i think beat canelo clearly are ggg (first fight ) Floyd and Kovalev (coming up ) the rest were just close fights in my opinion.

    BJS is not on that level

    although i know the fight would be very competetive
