    I think the problem was he was protein deficient.

    Once he starting sampling the "carne especial" this deficiency was addressed.

    Canelo boiled down to 154 anyway (his advantage). Blame Canelo and his team for being overconfident in believing he could still have an advantage despite shedding 2 more pounds. Let's not act like Floyd is a big guy. Catchweights are sometimes needed for the "best" to fight the best.
    I forgot, did anyone force the so called face of boxing (today) to fight Money May? NOPE.

    Canelo was so "drained" against Mayweather that he came in 20lbs heavier on fight night than Floyd, yet still couldn't touch him :lol:

    Clenelo was drained.

    Clenelo was so drained that Floyd's punches caused the most facial damage of any Clenelo opponent to date. When your body is drawn and drained, it bruises far more easily. Clenelo barely bruised against GGG, Jacobs, or anyone else.

    Clenelo now can weigh in at 168/175 and look shredded and rehydrate to 180s. That's how far apart the two Clenelos are.

    Lol the Canelo of today will still lose to the Floyd of the 2013 fight. He can do as much research and homework on Floyd, Floyd will always end up making the superior adjustments and being his daddy inside the ring and outside the ring. You will not find a television network telling Floyd to get the hell out of here on a $280 million deal over 4-5 years, they pay him that much for a single fight.

    Excellent post well put together. You are quite right that Billy Jane Saunders should not be compared to Mayweather.

    The Canelo that Mayweather fought was 'green' in comparison to the fighter he has gone on to become now.

    He's now hit his prime and a completely different beast to the 2013 version, anyone with 2 brain cells can see that.

    Canelo said he would come down to 152 to make the fight. Canelo put it out there first. Mayweather just got it penned on the contract.
    That's like me saying I'll pay BCS8 $1000.00 to shine my shoes, then blame you for over charging me when I can't pay my other bills. BCS8 is not the one to blame in this situation.

    Mayweather still doesn't get credit for beating a non-weight-drained Canelo.
