    Castano absolutely mauls him at 154.

    he's left it a bit late with one thing and another but on 'neutral ground' I'd favour Beterbiev.

    I’d definitely back Bivol and Beterbiev to beat him.

    Too many to name at 175, at 168 Benavidez, Plant, Smith , and I'd give Saunders and Jacobs a decent chance. At 160 I don't think he loses to anyone but GGG and Charlo could make it competitive.

    I like Joe Smith and he would give Canelo a hard fight along with Plant, Bicol, Benavidez yet Ramirez might not make it to the final bell IMO. I think Ramirez would come out in high gear to prove a point, which he would, but Bug Red would slowly pick him apart the last 3 rounds

    Canelo already beat all of them except Mayweather, and the Canelo of today beats both Lara and Trout in the same night

    Nah, Kovalev was soundly outboxing Canelo from start to KO, and he was handing out love taps, the one time he sat down on a shot he had Canelo buzzed for almost a minute. This is a tenderized Kovalev who was coming off of almost being KO'd by Anthony Yarde. Most of the guys you mentioned don't have alcohol induced chin issues like the Krusher, they either shut him out or brutalize him. Make no mistakes, Canelo has cherry picked his way through 168 and 175. Sure, I hyped up Kovalev, but even a shot to **** Kovalev was a round and a half away from being brutally robbed.

    He ain't ever fighting at 154, I doubt if he even goes back to 160. At 168/175, Bivol and Beterbiev are the answers. Gvozdyk could've beaten him too, but he's retired now. David Benavidez would give him a very tough fight, but I think that would be another fight where Canelo winning a close decision in a very tough battle and fans bickering about the decision in the end.

    Crawford is WAY to small for Canelo. Dude just walked down and KOed a lightheavy. But there are a few 175ers I'd favor.

    Kov got walked down and beat up. Love taps are not effective agression.

    Is that why almost every scorer on the RBR had Kovalev winning fairly wide?
