Canelo would get grounded by a strong fairly decent high school wrestler who is 16 and over. Canelo would get taken down, and stay down, then follow by ground and pound from mount position. As Canelo try to squirm his way up, he'll turn his back and the wrestler would use a very basic rear naked choke, forcing Canelo to tap. Why do so many boxing purist think having good hands is enough? Have any of you actually ever grappled before? Do you not know what happens when a white belt meets a higher white belt let alone a decent wrestler or a black belt? You are completely clueless if you think just being athletic or strong is enough. Mayorga 0-5 James Toney 0-1 Mercer 1-1 Jimmerson 0-1 Melton Bowen 0-1 Julius Francis 0-1 Butterbean 17-10 ( needed cross training and still got beat by bums.) Holly holm( cross trained plus kick boxing helped, did 3 years before turning pro.) Milo savage 0-1 (Gene Lebell ) Sam Mcvey 1-0 ( mixed rules, he fought a fake japanese jujitsu guy, who was a fraud first. and then beat captain stevens after he submitted sam mcvey a bunch of times but was not counted as an instant win. ) Claressa Shields (beaten by an average female fighter.) Roberto Duran vs Funaki ( Funaki stalled to make the fight interesting, soon as he shot a double, he secured the armbar and tapped Duran out.) 99% of the times, a boxer who does not cross train, losses. Doesn't matter who it is, the very best boxers like Tyson admit this to be true. Other references Jack Johnson vs wrestler on footage youtube it. Boxers vs kick boxers. Masato vs Vince Phillips. Trevor Berbick vs japanese shoot fighter who dismantled his legs. Francis Botha 2-10 , had to cross train to get two wins, and even then, loss almost all his fights. Why boxing isn't enough. Boxers lean heavy on their lead leg, this makes it vulnerable to leg kicks and single leg takedowns. A boxer can compete in mma , but he/she needs to adjust their stance to check kicks and anticipate the sprawl, lowering their elevation, any boxer who fights upright will get taken down . I like the sweet science and its 1 aspect of mma, but it's not the be all end all, it's good for multiple attackers, but having no grappling knowledge at all still makes you an average human being if a high school athlete can whip you.
