Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez felt the catch-weight of 152-pounds was damaging to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who dropped a lopsided twelve round decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Canelo made the weight and reportedly blew up to 165-pounds on the night of the fight. Some believe Canelo weighed close to 170 when he entered against Mayweather, and that made the Mexican star even slower. 

"Mayweather's win was undeniable. He is still the best fighter in the world, and for now, invincible. The weight hurt [Canelo]. He had to make an effort [to get to that weight]. They say he took off fifteen pounds in a few weeks to make 152-pounds. And then when he stepped into the ring he weighed a lot more than Mayweather, but that made ​​him slower. I also think Canelo lacked a corner. There was no game plan, and I think he didn't apply enough pressure during the fight," Marquez said.

The reason Canelo lost is because Floyd is the better fighter. What a radical concept, not that difficult to grasp, really.

[QUOTE=DatMofoThere85]First of all, Marquez is supposed to have something to say. He's a boxing analyst for ESPN Deportes. 2nd, calling Marquez a "know-it-all"? Uh, yea, he has an extremely high boxing IQ and has actually been in the ring with Mayweather so I'd say his opinion is more valid t...
