damn. 72 posts in and your dropping knowledge like that? welcome to the forum bro.
i couldnt agree more. canelo looks like a monster, but you cant tell until hes in there with better opposition. guys with power always look great on their way up and get loads of hype. but it isnt until they have a real test on their hands that we can tell if they know how to apply that power at the highest level. you dont know how good they are defensively either since most of their opponents just focused on surviving.
this indeed will tell us a lot about canelo. he might put trout to sleep or he might get taken to school, i look forward to finding out.
