    The funny thing is you are actually devoting time, thought/worship and (I'm sure) money supporting this fraudulent manufactured hypejob. So really the joke is on you, but you've been fooled so much you that you're all happy and dandy as if you haven't been suckered in.. It's quite embarassing how easily Canelo and his team have conned the masses.. They're nothing but sneaky opportunist salesmen

    Those were all family types trips unfortunately. The trip to Mexico will be full of debauchery I may post some of that.

    Tank Davis would get outclassed by Lomachenko

    Canelo could ko Usyk and there’d still be threads whining about him.

    Give Saunders the same PED power upgrade and then it's a very different fight. Suddenly those clean shots of his aren't so easy for Canelo to brush off.

    No but the version of Saunders that fought him was a better version than the version of Saunders who fought Canelo. More consistent footwork, more poised, more elusive, that was truly Billy at his peak, that's the version of Saunders that those who say he would school Canelo imagine when they say that.

    This is the problem with fantasy fights.

    Obviously there's a scenario where BJS beats Canelo, but it relies on BJS being at his best whilst Canelo is not at his best.

    And when you compare their careers, Canelo has improved a facet of his game every single fight and we arguably haven't even seen his peak yet. BJS always displayed the potential to be a slick dominant fighter, but only actually did it in real life on one night.

    In 2017 is the only realistic window of opportunity where BJS would have a better chance than he did in real life.

    Even then, one man schooled Lemmy, one man fought a close competitive fight with GGG.

    I had Canelo just losing to triple G, but he was fighting a much superior opponent to BJS.

    But also Canelo has improved loads since then.

    I mean look at his accuracy and timing now. Plus he's now sitting down on those counters.

    I mean yeah maybe he's pedded up, maybe, but if not, he's a genuine world class talent who's unified 3 divisions.

    The only two knocks that can be made against Canelo is he's received the benefit of close fights, and he's been caught with clen.

    But in my opinion, every great has received benefits of close decisions which is why they end up with great records, plus I actually believe every boxer cheats the system as much as they can, Lance Armstrong has destroyed my trust in professional athletes, Pascal has obliterated any trace of trust that still remained.

    Canelo is seeking out the best fighters in every division, I say we enjoy him whilst he's around, which, with his matchmaking, will hopefully be a very long time.

    Don't think so! Canelo took that slickness and footwork away, because Canelo is a far superior fighter than Lemieux. Easy to look good against guys that can't slip a punch or cut off the ring.

    The greats are great because , as Shadow stated , they stay in shape permanently. Canelo, Mayweather, GGG all are top professionals & are in tip top condition body & mind, although BJS has shown flashes of Brilliance he is his own worst enemy as he ,Like Hatton , he drifts into near obesity in between fights & has a lazy mindset as he only trains to beat that particular opponent he will be facing where as the 3 greats above train 110% for every opponent & leave nothing to chance. This is what is why I find canelo so damned annoying in the past with the judges , weight clauses etc ....theres no real need , he's brilliant but it rankles me that he does !!

    Maybe if you stop pretending BJS beating DL is something all that special you stop pretending he’d ever beat Canelo.

    DL lost to Alcine and Rubio who aren’t elite and got destroyed by GGG. That version who beat DL was like that because David is a limited fighter he could fight that way. Canelo isn’t on DL levels he’s multiple levels above him.

    It's a shame the "Lemieux version" of Marco Antonio Rubio didn't make it to the GGG fight. Different ballgame, if that were the case.
