    Canelo was in between a rock and hard spot. He'll lose to Benavidez as well, no matter whether it was Bivol or Benavidez, Canelo was going to lose this May. Now the question is this does Canelo take another loss to Bivol or follow it up with a war of attrition with Golovkin where neither fighter will walk out the same?

    By the way, I have Golovkin winning that war of attrition and sending Canelo out of the sport for 1 year to reflect. He'll make an eventual comeback against John Ryder.

        "I would’ve never allowed Canelo to ..."

        And that, right there, is the reason why Canelo is no longer a GBP fighter.

          Picks him to win before the fight, says he would obviously lose 10 times out of 10 after the fight.

          All the promoters avoid fights that are too risky if they can. But Oscar seems the most risk-averse. Zurdo and Munguia were already belt holders years ago but now GBP has them drifting along as contenders. Garcia has stalled rather than fight a top dog. Ortiz looks great but hasn't stepped up still. Does Oscar have a single world champ signed? Literally every world champ is too big a risk for a fighter if GBP is guiding them.

            In terms of a risky move, sure, he has a point. But for the fans and to dare to be greater, it's wonderful that Canelo took the risk.

            We want to see the best vs the best. So I'm glad Eddie helped make the fight happen. The marinating of fights and having mismatches is not what we want to see.

            Of course, Oscar is saying this because he wants to promote Canelo. Yet De La Hoya has often said in the past that the best should fight the best. So he's contradicting himself.

              Balderdash and poppycock!

                Oscar's a good guy. Too bad carnela is a pampered divas that left him

                  Oscar is clearly salty Canelo left him but he’s not wrong about the matchmaking. He matched Canelo perfectly. There’s a reason GBP waited out GGG for two years. They timed it perfectly.

                    Canelo will never knock out GGG

                      Yet Golden Boy employee Bernard Hopkins said prior to the fight that Canelo would "smash" Bivol and it's essentially a mismatch and cherry pick?

                      Great 20-20 hindsight vision there Oscar, what were you saying before the fight, I wonder?
