[QUOTE=hayZ;13503064]I thought Canelo was meant to be taller than Mayweather, they look the same height. It does not look like a mismatch physically AT ALL like people were saying.[/QUOTE] Mayweather is bigger, according to the tape. Longer reach, same height.

I thought Canelo was meant to be taller than Mayweather, they look the same height. It does not look like a mismatch physically AT ALL like people were saying.
