    You don't land a canelo fight after looking impressive, just like floyd he takes fights at certain times. BJS knew this so he played possum against murray, and look what happened he landed the mega fight.

    So you think he's been lackluster and inactive on purpose to lure Canelo in?,, there's another possibility, he is inactive and lackluster at 168.

    hey it could happen. he should have the skills to give canelo a good fight.

    I just dont want people to pretend he's looked amazing in the last couple years. take out the lemieux fight and he's looked a bit average. maybe he lacked motivation. hell fury looked lackluster for a bit too.

    i would equate furys win over wilder to bjs over lemieux, except theres no canelo at hw to put the wins in context.

    He looked average against Murray and went life-and-death with Coceres. He was rocked to his core by Isufi.

    LMFAO if you really think he beats Clenbuterol.

    Not saying he won't win a round but he won't make it clear enough to win enough rounds to win.

    If you actually pick Saunders to win the Clenelo hate has taken over a bit too much.

    It's Clen UD all day long. All night long. All year long. Easy Decision win for the Beef Man.

    And i'm definitely NOT A Clenelo fan but people are overrating Saunders big time here.

    BJS was literally CLEARLY trying as hard as he could to KO Murray. As we all know, didn't happen

    I thought he looked good.. sharp, accurate, composed, skilled… Yes Murray was shot but hey ho.. the Lee fight & Lemieux fights were Saunders at his best.. very skilful fighter

    Murray is an easy guy to beat, but a hard guy to dominate. Very clearly remember him looking like he was gonna break prime GGG's KO streak.

    All I know is that BJS talked about insane amount of **** about willing to die in the ring, willing to have really just one day with his kids and then die if he can beat Clenelo, yadda, yadda, yadda.
