Would you rate Canelo over Mayweather if he wins in November?

    i think you have to. Floyd had a very impressive career but he never
    Fought a guy that had such an size advantage on him as kova has on canelo.

    Canelo daring to be Great , for me active Mayweather was the greatest modern day pugilist , however he is retired , The parameters have changed , we now have Living legends in different divisions Lomo , Inuoue , Triple G, of course Canelo . IMO Greatness is achieved when a Fighter has his status elevated BY THE FANS to a state of invincibility and backs it up every time .
    Canelo is a Great ... Proven !!

    To much scandal with canelo to be considered great in ny eyes . Drugs cheat. Dodgy scoring cards . Rehydration rules . It all adds up

    Canelo has 2 hugely controversial results on his CV. He lost the first GGG fight. The 2nd was closer but still think he lost that after GGG's late rally.
    I just think throughout his career Floyd beat people more clearly. The Kov win would be excellent though but if he just jumps down the division again its a bit of calculated gamble which id rather not see.

    Daring to be great? Yet he only faced the big names when they were past prime Mayweather, GGG and now Kovalev.

    Floyd started his career at 130, nearly half of his fights were at that weight. And had 3 fights as high as 154, so nearly everyone in the second half of his career had size advantages over him. Canelo has arguably already lost five fights (one to the post prime, far smaller version of the man you're comparing him to).

    This ain't even close.

    No, Canelo tested positive for steroids and won fights he would have lost of not for his sugar daddy.

    Hell no. Do u forget Mayweather schooled Canelo at his weight and wasn't even prime when he beat him.
