    He will compare Canelo to God given the opportunity

    But Canelo is more than likely better as Gods techniques are not very modern

    I've already beaten bumnard in several debates regarding Ali because he doesn't like Ali, he doesn't listen so theres no need however if he wants to step up to the plate he very well can. I'll be right here

    Ali got knocked down in 1963, he was not in his prime in 1963. He was still green and it was his 19th fight and he clearly wasn't as good as he was against Liston or Terell or Williams. He got better later on and those fights i mentioned after the cooper fight demonstrate his elite headmovment. Who was Canelos 19th fight ? A nobody im guessing and Cooper was known to have a powerful left hook. I don't think Canelo was green when he lacked a lot of head movement against Mayweather and got his head boxed off.

    Even if you're not saying Canelo has better headmovment, it's not more advanced either

    I think he was exactly in his physical prime. Not lesser, maybe just a bit not too enough experience. Yes, he had been dropped by guy who was approx 20 lbs lighter than he and this is reality.
    Guy just should admit this reality and not live in dreamland.
    While being dropped doesn't automatically means to be chinny, it is also balance thing.
    Sometimes to get dropped might matter a lot for delusional fans and biased commentators but not for fighter. Like in fight Povetkin vs Whyte I , I do know that no one who had not served the ring does not have a clue.

    While Ali from 60 ies had fought with guys like Patterson, who was approx 190 lber but he had faster hands ( while slower legs ) than prime Mike Tyson. He had won these fights vs Liston and Patterson and Pat was legit Olympic Gold medalist.
    Me doesn't likes King's protege slow Ali from 70 ies who had to ate bombs.
    While Ali from 60 ies was yeah, ATG boxer for ams and pros.

    If Ali from 60 ies had been officiated and had advantages in business till level Clenelo does have after Mosley fight, then he had been looked as ATG NO1 with 0 doubts.

    Ali from 60 ies was really very good for ATG. Clen is not ATG material till today.

    Thanks.

    Always shoot to kill, aim for the eyes, and make sure you empty the whole chamber. Figuratively speaking of course. Anything other than a brutal HL reel KO1 is waste of time.

    That wall of text is called digital Clenelo puke :lol:

    not yet no.. At the time he is on top and doing great, so most would rate him higher than he will go later on.
