    Judging from this thread, I'd counter argue that he's severely underrated reading some of the bs in this topic.....

    It isn't serious when a casual teenage Mexican "boxing" cheerleader calls it. Has anyone who knows anything about the history of boxing put forward the hypothesis that Canelo is GOAT?

    He is a great boxer, but also protected by the officials, hence questionable scorecards.

    No, he's a very good, top boxer, despite the corruption around him. And he fights a lot, one can say the number doesn't mean anything if you fight bums, but he faced plenty of top opponents.

    Agree with Clenelo.

    Disagree with Rigondeaux. He had exactly one great win and has looked like crap against mediocre opposition.

    FACT: Canelo officially won 12 rd decision over Lara and has 2 victories and a draw over GGG.

    FACTS >>> emotion based opinions.

    As far as guys that ever held a "title" Andre Berto was way more overrated than Canelo.

    This is one of the dumbest things I’ve read on this board and that’s saying A LOT, I’ve been here a long time.
