    Honest question. I think he hits decent but now everyone is acting like he hits like Julian Jackson.
    I get that he turned pro early and his body matured and he got stronger as he progressed in his career.
    But exactly who did he out on ice that was so impressive? Amir Khan gets knocked out when the wind blows.
    Kirkland has a horrible chin even getting blown out in one round by a journeyman.
    Cotto was past his best and never once was close to getting stopped.
    Same with Shane.
    These were lightweights/Jr welters and Canelo couldn't even drop them.
    People point to Saunders who suffered an injury to his face but it wasn't like he got dropped.
    Sergi had been brutally knocked out by an upstart and stopped by Ward.
    I mean what fight displayed Canelos power?

    I don't know. Canelo always seemed like a hurtful puncher. He's a master as setting up big shots. I can't say when he perfected it but he does it effortlessly. He's not a 1 punch KO artist but he knows how to cause some serious damage and get you out of there.

    When he juiced up on the roids for the GGG fights. Till then he was a counter puncher who could ko midgets like Khan or glass jaws like Kirkland.

    He’s juicing a lot and sits down on his punches more. He also has great timing, punch selection, and is at a weight that perfectly suits him. Add in the fact that he’s training hard for power year round and you have someone that can become a solid puncher without natural one punch power

    Go back to when he was busted for PEDs. A year before then. That's your answer.

    That's what I figured but thought maybe I missed something.
    This guy is such a fake.

    He's in peak condition now, his game is at its peak.

    He's now more prime than the prime beef he eats!

    After Fighting Jacob’s & before fighting Rocky Fielding.

    ever since Rocky Fiekding he looked unstoppable.

    that’s when this power punching really took off.

    Forget the power - his stamina has improved in leaps and bouds must be the EPO.

    A few years after the Asociación Mexicana de Productores de Carne began a breeding program for a very special kind of cattle specifically for his consumption.

    Hard work and medication..Look at Andy Ruiz. Reynoso miracles do happen he went from a lard to herculian in a few months. WOW!!

    How about Oscar Pedez. I remember this guy getting dropped by Servania a bum then gets his jaw broke by Quigg. In comes Reynoso miracles again. He has become granite chin and punching like a mule.

    By the grace of WBC sulaiman.
