    Probably but we'll have to wait until his career is over.

    Nope. Just not a great warrior like so many before him.

    Salvador Sanchez was far better.

    He looked terrible against Bivol, but I think that may have a lot to do with the size. A lot of fans dont realize how big a career LHW is. If you look at a guy like Bivol, Gvozdyk or Beterbiev they are not little guys at all. They're monsters. Try walking by Beterbiev or Bivol in real life. LHW ain't no joke for a guy coming up from 154.

    Yes i can see why they are big men compared to Canelo. Canelo is a midget at 175.

    Bivol had to remind Canelo that he is 5'8". Beterbiev is a massive LHW, dude is an absolute tank. If Bivol was way too big for Canelo then Beterbiev will nail him to the canvas. Dont go near these guys. Stay away from 175.

    Chavez is better. Salvador Sanchez too. But he's surpassed De La Hoya. I don't know enough to judge Miguel Canto, but Erik Morales holds victories over a prime Manny Pacquiao, prime Barrera, and an old Zaragoza. Cinnamon can't match those scalps.
