    Shouldn’t be at 168, lazy waster who can’t get to his proper weight

    He 100% broke his mind. Yeah there was damage to his eye but he was humiliated in there. Canelo goading him, calling on the fans to cheer him more, showboating. He broke Billy’s heart. He knew Canelo was feasting off this energy and only getting stronger.

    Young CHRIS gives Canelo something to think about at 160. I have to pick the ginger kid but can see Junior getting inside and landing
    heavy and often, will be an absolute war for as long as it lasts. You know CHRIS will never quit on his stool like a dog, the Mexican fans will love it.

    A lot of people seem to forget that Jnr lost a split decision to BJS after 3 years as a pro in a fight where he inexplicably took the first half off.

    I would love to see the rematch or Jnr lose like a warrior against Canelo.

    Why are people talking about Eubank Junior ? :lol:
    He's nowhere near Canelo's class, or even proper world class.

    It would be like putting Errol Christie in with prime Marvin Hagler (may they both R.I.P.).
    With no disrespect intended, that would've been a bad idea.

    This version of young CHRIS destroys SANDERS with ease. Walks through him and makes him QUIT like a dog. SANDERS DUCKS junior and retires now imo.
    Junior stops this version of GGG now too for my money.

    Canelo is a different proposition, would be a toe to to all out WAR. Canelo the clear favourite but I’d be looking to take a piece of Junior if the bookies and the fans get the odds too wrong.

    Junior was a green kid who had never been in a twelve rounder before. A lot of people scored it to the youngster. Ridiculously close one to call, the fact SANDERS still has it as his best win says it all.

    Groves who would outweigh Canelo by thirty plus pounds couldn’t put a dent in junior. Canelo was backed up by a super featherweight. Junior isn’t getting bullied by the ginger midget in there.

    Yeah you're doubtless right on the HGH and whatever else is available at the cutting edge of PED use. I just try not to be too definitive just in case.


    That's the way to do it.

    Just hope DDD doesn't have to delay his next fight to have his sides stitched backtogether

    its sad to see lots of people here not give billy joe any credit, say what you want about him personally but he was boxing really well and winning the rounds prior to the stoppage. you cant score boxing if you think canelo was ahead

    I have absolutely no idea why his name ever cropped up, never mind the fact it still is. Having a famous dad really does brainwash people. the guy is a bigger waster than Saunders.
