    Maybe if just for paycheck, they again will score all for cash cow in Clenbuterol.
    If he can't KO him out cold, then no reasons to fight vs Clenbuterol.

    Sure, GGG ad all of his fans can know in their hearts what happened. But Canelo is far more popular and his legion of fanboys far more deranged adn unreasonable, and they're the ones who write the narrative that sticks, because they talk over and drown out the minority. So like I said.. it's pointless.

    It will be Caleb Plant and he will be violently stopped and I will laugh as it happens.

    Beve is not worth for Canelo, Canelo beats him and they will say Beterbiev was shot and 36 year's old the excuses will come flying in.

    I think it’s fair to ask any fighter who moves up to win a title to fight there again against the other champions.

    It's fair to ask, doesn't mean it will happen. He said he gives up too many advantages at 175.


    Anyways we will have to wait and see. Like I said I don't think he sticks around 168 after Plant... So maybe he does go back to 175 or ?160?. I'd like to see Benavidez vs Canelo before he goes. Also a Spence Jr. fight at 160 if I'm really dreaming!

    Plant fits the profile of what Canelo has fought at 168, no punchers

    Lets see GGG. Clenelo should have no reservations since GGG hasn't looked great recently. With GGG's age this fight needs to happen soon.

    Look man, nobody is calling Canelo a bum or the greatest fighter since Ray Leonard. We just want to see him for the first time in his career legitimately beat a top level fighter in or very close to his prime without any controversy surrounding possible rigged cards or some type of A side clause to get a competitive advantage.

    Is it too much to ask for him to beat a top level guy mano a mano?

    He'll stop Caleb Plant relatively early in the fight. I'd like to see him fight Benavidez, Beterbiev and Bivol.

    He could potentially beat all three but lose to them also which make the fights very intriguing. Bivol can win the ''jab contest'' against Canelo but that may not be enough. Bivol has the most variety in his punch arsenal but might not like fighting Canelo ''toe to toe'' on the inside where Canelo could rough him up and potentially stop him.

    I think Canelo would try to circle and reserve more energy vs Beterbiev and try taking it to points. We've seen Beterbiev knocked down by Callum Johnson but Johnson failed to capitalize. Beterbiev might be just be ''too strong'' for Canelo and ultimately wear him down for a stoppage win.

    Jermall Charlo, GGG and Eubank Jr can be thrown in the mix, too. I think Canelo would beat all three and stop Eubank Jr. Charlo can throw punches from weird angles which makes him a bit more of a threat than GGG and Eubank Jr.

    People have written off Andrade after the Williams performance but Williams i think is still a work in progress. Andrade can mix it up a bit and has good movement where he can offset his opponent for a counter. I don't think Andrade would beat Canelo but i think he'd frustrate him more than Saunders.

    My guess is Plant or Golovkin III. And he wins both those fights fairly comfortably.

    IMHO Beterbiev is the only guy on that list who would beat him.

    Plant and undisputed is obviously the next step. After that I'd like for him to take on Bivol/Beterbiev, but staying at 168 and making the division his own is not a bad option either. Moving down to 160 seems like the wrong step, though, since he looks stronger at 168.

    He should rematch Billy if his eye is fine.. He won't though as the judges and fangirl scorecards have deluded him into thinking he wasn't losing on the cards

    Plant is a **** fight, he isn't even that slick and is hittable. Canelo will make him squeal like a pig especially if Plant agrees to come to lose
