    I'm going to start this off by saying Canelo is good for boxing. He's clearly not afraid of fighting the best and that's what Boxing needs BUT

    He's the most corrupt and protected fighter today, having ridiculous decisions and score cards for example

    118-110 in a close fight with GGG
    117-111 in a close fight with Lara
    118-109 in a close fight with Trout
    49-46 to Canelo before he KTFOd Khan
    114-114 against Mayweather

    He also has failed two separate tests, both of which before the scheduled May 5th Rematch with GGG. He was only given a 6 month ban which is ridiculous, and far to short a punishment in most's eyes

    He also ducked GGG for a few years whilst fighting at 155, and even gave up his title to not face him. He tried to be a weight bully and failed. Imo (and quite a few others) he can't be calling himself Middleweight champion if he doesn't even fight at the Middleweight limit

    Lol you know they will after everything mentioned above they still rave and support him then there is no hope! Just hope Jacobs gets a fair shake at Canelo on May 4th,, He better avoid drinking any water they provide or food DAZN that is lol

    I also thought he beat Trout, and tied with Lara. Neither was a near shut out

    He does get some disgusting cards in his favor

    But...

    Fighters know that. That's why you get the big pay day, and that's exactly why GGG wants a trilogy so bad.

    What do you suggest? Ignore him altogether, pretend he's not really the champ? Act like you didn't see him win the fights you think he won , because he failed a drug test? I don't understand what you're wanting.

    Yeah, that's spot on.
    People excuse Canelo when they're Mexican and/or when they have a racial agenda against Golovkin.
    There's another rare case, and that's when somebody has been beaten by Canelo and wants him to be the best. (Liam Smith is that kind of knob).
    One thing to add is that Canelo tried to weaken Fielding with the rehydration clause.

    I suggest that they don't religiously defend him. And act as if he can do no wrong
