    Lemieux is a world top ten fighter (Ring #7) and former IBF titlist with wins over the likes of Ndam, Stevens and Spike O'Sullivan. He's a hell of a lot better than what Saunders has fought and looked worse against since. That said, he was also stylistically perfect as an opponent for someone like BJS.

    Saunders for me has always been one who fights to the level of his competition and does just enough to get by. He'd be on top motivation for a Canelo match, but it probably wouldn't be enough. Saunders probably starts well and his body and head movement and counters keep him in it for a few rounds. Then the body shots will take their toll and he will start to tire and eat shots as he does when made to fight hard. Canelo late rounds in this one. I just don't believe you can go from a run of fights since becoming a champ of Akovov, Monroe Jr, Lemieux, Adamu, Isufi and Coceres and looking crap in half of them to beating someone like Canelo.

    Saunders is all wrong for Canelo.

    At least its happenng. Tell me who the other belt holders are fighting?

    Its only a handful of fighters in boxing right now willing to fight other belt holders. Canelo still has 8 more fights with DAZN left. He just took a big risk moving up two divisions and fighting Kovalev, he took a big risk fighting Jacobs, and now even Saunders is no push over whatsoever and is a champion at SMW.

    I hope this fight happens so Canelo can make Saunders eat his words.

    I didn't vote and I'm not going to be watching since it will be some controversial garbage again.

    Canelo > GGG

    You will forever have to deal with that fact and spend the rest of your days coming to message boards telling stories about how you were there to witness the great Triple Gee get robbed by the ATG four division legendary Mexican warrior.

    You'll also be telling stories about how Pacquiao really beat Mayweather. lol

    I hope for your sake you find another hobby in your old age. lol

    Dimitry Bivol needs to get is as sin line and wait his turn. Canelo has tons of options against many title holders. In the mean time he can fight Beterbiev, or Ramirez who probably deserve the fight more than him.
