    Canelo is a bitc* just like mayweather and ward.
    I just cant stand those everything has to be exactly the way I want it to be fighters, with 1000 different demands, such as catchweight, fight date and so on.
    Look at Usyk he fought 4 times within 12 months exclusively high level opposition and all in their back yards. Besides his first Hw fight against Whiterspoon, which was a due to sponge dropping out, he didnt have a single bad matchup in years.

    I found this post on reddit but it is exactly for you:

    "You have to be really young and naive or just have a blind loyalty to Canelo to really go through the mental gymnastics in believing this tainted meat story. This kind of **** does not happen to world class elite level athletes by accident. Jon Jones **** pills or tainted creatine excuses... I'm done with all that ****.

    Canelo is a manufactured product, designed and designated to be a money making machine. His routine is set in stone. Two fights a year at the same two times every year with no drug testing in the off season. What better set up to have for an elite athlete to cycle PED's on and off year after year? GGG's popularity and success is the complete opposite of Canelos to me. It was a more organic and natural process built through hard work and a lot of patience. No one got in my face and told me GGG was "the face of boxing" or any of that marketing bull****. I just watched the guy fight and saw the way he conducted himself and was drawn in. Organically... that's how it should happen."

    And fights can be close and clear btw. And even if they are close why does Canelo get the benefit of the doubt every single time with dodgy scorecards. It's just blind loyalty to Canelo

    In life many people hate the “establishment” as they feel that the cards are stacked in their favour, leaving the common person at a huge disadvantage. This mentality is deep rooted, and very toxic.

    Apply that same logic to boxing. We’re already hardwired to dislike Canelo.

    I'm not a massive fan but I just want to point out he fought GGG twice

    So don't really understand the notion he ducked him. He fought him twice, when GGG was still at a top level (not saying he isn't top level now, he probably still is, but he was even better in 2017 and 2018).

    2 major reasons:

    1. He is the best so people are jealous
    2. He beat Lil G and showed he was not this mythical monster people made him out to be.

    Another reason was the Clenbuterol contaminated meat he eat in error.

    Personally I really like him a lot. By the time he is finished he may be regarded as the best ever produced from Mexico alongside the great Salvador Sanchez (what a fighter he was).

    It’s because he beat Lil G and the fan boy girls can’t take it. They thought Lil G was the greatest in history whereas the truth is he won’t even have been a contender in the 70s, 80s and & 90s.

    He's only the big cash cow because he's been given several gift decisions!! He's had at least 4.
    People hate on him because of their frustration with thinking like yours.

    He probably doesn't care about what most people think of him, but he definitely hasn't earned any respect himself.
    He represents everything that's wrong with boxing, and expects people just to bend over for that too. Being talented an nationality alone shouldn't earn you respect.

    Question; Why is JCC Jr so disrespected? Why is Broner so disrespected? Why is Nery so disrespected?
    We can go on...
