    Don't know about where, but I'm pretty sure about will.

    I've almost no doubt he'll be remembered as the greatest Mexican ever once his career is over.

    Who is above him? Sanchez?

    I don't see how anyone could place Chavez above him.

    Embarassing. The guys a weight jumping, cherrypicking, roid taking, match fixing, card stacking fraud.

    You could say similar things about Chavez but people still rate him highly.

    His lack of competitive fights don't endear him to the normal folk , plus his lack of clear marquee wins hurt his case.

    I don't rate Chavez as high tbh but his comeback win over Taylor and his fights are more crowd-friendly .

    Imo both Cinnamon and Chavez lack the quality of resume of Morales, Barrera and Marquez .

    Too many dark clouds over his Peds use & obvious corruption. Like his predecessor Floyd this tarnishes his legacy. If he'd only stayed honest he could well have reached the heights though. both had the talents but got led astray by $$$$

    If so, it'll be for his complexion.
