    He's over rated if you are rating him based on a draw and a win over GGG in addition to his other accomplishments.

    Canelo will be in the hof a couple years after he retires pbf is already in the hof. Frauds don't get into the hof. You keep talking about cheaters yet you're the biggest margo fan on this site a guy who was banned for loading his gloves which is 10000000x worse than anything you accuse canelo and pbf of who will never get into the hof. And you want to talk about frauds and cheats???? Practice what you preach.

    ROFLMAO !!! NOTHING was ever proven against Antonio It was just Naz making his usual complaints about their opponents wraps . Then the blatant " Plaster Blocks " LIE!! led to that disgraceful injustice. When the CSAC realized they'd made a faux pas they were snookered. The testing of the pads revealed there was never any plaster in them those pads were harmless. I wish they had indicted him he'd have been a very rich man today They'd have been laughed out of court. The CSAC refused to reinstate Tony because , in their own words, We believe he MAY HAVE TRIED TO LOAD HIS GLOVES !! I wonder if all concerned sleep well at night knowing they destroyed an innocent mans career & tarnished his good name based on LIES!!!!!!!
    In all honesty if ANYONE could have provided positive proof Tony had tried to cheat I'd have been at him myself as bad as anyone but no one could
    See YOU even lie on your post Pimp you claim Antonio was banned for loading his gloves, he wasn't, the CSAC lawyers were wiser than you. The CSAC themselves banned him because they THOUGHT he may have tried. They left the way clear for Floyd to slither back with Tony out of the picture didnt they as he'd already RETIRED AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get a life man

    I wouldn't class Canelo as the most overrated of all time, There's a flabby heavyweight dosser that comes to mind who has a host of cheerleaders claiming he's better than Ali who is more deserving of that title (Overrated) Canelo has at least fought some good quality opposition although there are question marks of how clean he is

    People do know what overrated is right?

    Talked about in such regard which doesn't measure up to one's achievements, the dude has won world titles in 4 divisions is it?

    He's done quite a bit more than Beterbiev or GGG and both of those guys get more credit than Canelo does at least around here

    No, that's SRL, who had an excellent career, but who regularly gets put in boomer midwits top 10s or even top 5s, when his career had more smoke, mirrors and asterisks than even ODLH

    Canelo will be remembered as a throwback to the 2000s/2010s when division-hopping was a bit more common; who lost at his lightest and at his heaviest, and who had a controversial trilogy with middleweight HOF GGG. Him unifying 168 in less than 12 months might also be remembered as it was pretty fun at the time

    Part of the reason Canelo's P4P status is/was so overblown is due to Usyk getting tangled up in heavyweight politics, the Bud/Spence standoff, Loma's messy career at 135 and comparatively few people caring about Inoue's accomplishments

    His trainer admitted to reusing gause and that in itself is illegal
