    Inoue has been more dominant than Clenelo. No controversy.

    Why? I have canelo p4p #1 which is the right choice. Loma and ggg lost and have no case of being p4p #1. Don't get mad at me because you can't handle the truth.

    There is no way Va-SILLY Lose-a-chenko is number 1 P4P or even top 5.

    The dude got decisively beat up by an inexperienced 23 year old (a kid that I expected to be KO'd by Va-SILLY). Let's not even bring up getting out-hustled by Salido.

    I wouldn't even have him in the P4P top 10.

    Personally, I'd love to see Josh Taylor go down to 135 and slam this bum to the canvas. Tank Davis too!

    Bjs has always been been a b level fighter. Always fought like one. How anyone ever saw more than that, I’ll never know.

    160lber Saunders rips canelos head off with amazing superb one left uppercuts. It's Irrefutable.

    Makes no ****ing difference. Same as Tyson Fury. You don't stay in shape and stay disciplined your potential means jack ****.

    While I'm definitively against Mythical Prime discussions as folks are likely to have about the Saunders of the Lemieux fight, Billy will certainly be remembered for having underachieved. At 160 he had all the tools to win against just about anyone. 168 was simply a fat weight class. Still, no one should make time for coulda woulda shoulda's in boxing. It doesn't matter if you have skills, talent, heart, etc if you don't WANT it bad enough.

    Saunders would have outboxed him. Still would be a close fight, but Saunders would win a 7-5/8-4 type of fight. He won atleast 3-4 rounds of the actually fight imo.

    Using Saunders' footwork against Lemieux to gauge how he would do against Canelo is like using Canelo's KO win over Khan to gauge how he would do against Golovkin.

    Saunders has always shown to been inconsistent as far as his commitment. I don't buy that there has ever been a better Saunders than what we saw against Canelo.

    Yet canelo didn't fight a peak pbf. Funny how you like to leave that out. You actually think he was peak at 36??? Lol!!! I'd rather be 23 than 36 when I'm competing in boxing anyday.:deal:

    I would defs have him 2-3 on my list, I just think Canelo has been more active lately, 2 undefeated champions and a champ at 175( way above where he should be fighting).

    Anyways respect to you for actually stating a name... Not just bagging Canelo.
    Do you even rate Canelo top five? If not who you got? Just curious!
