    I don't hate him. I tune in to all his fights because I enjoy his fights, simple as that. But you...focusing on men's looks...that's just silly and weird.

    ASSOL thinks I look like a crackhead?? He's never seen what I look like. :lol: Not to toot my own horn, but I've done pretty well with the ladies. Helps that I'm close to 50 and still look like I'm in my 30's. Cleaning l-i-v-i-n! :smoking:

    ASSOL always roots for pretty boys. First he tongue rimmed OLDH for years....and now he's simply doing the same to canelo. Pretty sure ASSOL has posters of Menudo still up on his walls. They're dreamy!!! :lol:

    Widely perceived? You're referring mainly to GGG fans who's world got destroyed when they widely predicted GGG would destroy Canelo and it didn't happen, then instinctively focused on Byrd's rogue scorecard to distract from the fact that GGG was lucky to get a draw.

    Rogue judges who see fights differently than the other judges or the masses happen all the time in boxing. Case and point - Yildirim's last match vs Anthony Dirrell. Two judges scored it 96-94 in favor of Dirrell, while the other judge scored it a very wide 98-92 in favor of Yildirim.

    Does this mean Yildirim is "protected"? Of course not, it's just a judge saw it differently. We have a large amount of tinfoil hat manchilds on this forum who still can't get over the fact that Canelo beat GGG and destroyed his aura of invincibility.

    The same argument was made about Pacquiao by Mayweather, how Pacquiao was just ordinary looking then one day become "extraordinary" looking. The problem with your argument is that unlike Pacquiao, Canelo physique hasn't changed "vastly" beyond what would be considered "normal". You act like it's impossible for a fighter to transform their body naturally. Clenbuterol is a fat burner, it does not transform someone's physique. There are plenty of legal fat burners that do the same thing.

    False. I'm referring the overwhelming majority of the people who covered the fight, including ringside journalists. By no means are these people great scorers, but it *was* an unpopular score. Apologies for citing Reddit for anything, but a thread there has media scoring being 40 for GGG, 17 draws and 2 for Canelo. Doesn't make it a robbery, but the guy most people thought lost got a draw.


    I certainly never said it was impossible for a fighter to transform his body. Don't twist my words. It is highly unlikely, however, that someone would pack on that much muscle mass while also becoming more explosively athletic/better one shot power. Plus there's the Clen bust, which while not conclusive in my view is another fact tending to show that Canelo is on gear.[/QUOTE]

    Then don't the same people hate all the same great fighters? It's not that simple when you take a fine tooth comb to it.

    it’s pretty simple. We very rarely hate mediocrity! We all have different people or teams we hate and they are the great ones. If he was merely mediocre or pretty good people wouldn’t bother hating him

    Not true. I know what you mean, but that's not necessarily true. I've had girls pay me.

    You have never taken a woman out on a date, paid for the date, and then had sex with her? Never?
