    I think because fighting any of the following guys will do more for his career than fighting GGG a thrid time:

    Charlo, Andrade, Smith, Saunders, Beterbiev, Bivol. Fornling, Eubank, Plant.

    Besides if he fights GGG now people will just say he waited till he was older. Unfortunately, there will always be an excuse for why GGG lost also, so why bother. They already gave us 24 great rounds. If they were closer in age maybe making a trilogy would have made sense but now we're are just matching them up untill GGG looses his ability to speak.

    In fact a convincing victory over GGG, helps his chances for FOTD.
    Instead, Canelo ducks GGG, gives up his Mexican Holiday and waits 6 months to fight a +300 underdog, who looked like a KO waiting to happen in his last fight.
    It just don't make no sense, unless...
    Seems like your focus is to be FOTD, his isn't.

    And the truth is, he doesn't like all the crap GGG said of him after the PED/Meat incident and doesn't not want to give him another payday.

    Canelo beat the #3 ranked middleweight and the #2 ranked LHW. He will win foty and he deserves fotd as well, though politics will likely stop him from winning the latter.
    GGG took an easy fight with Rolls instead of a harder fight with Andrade because he expected to be fighting Canelo in less than 3 months and didn't want a hard fight so close to another hard fight. He did not know at that time that Canelo was going to chicken out of a third fight. He is fighting his mandatory next. He has to to keep his title. He isn't a protected Franchise champion like his royal highness Canelo.

    Not sure how he's not confident in beating Golovkin now. G looked so damn old against Direv

    Industry respect Dave Moretti and Trella so it being dodgy is just casual theory

    For a second there I thought you were talking about Canelo vs GGG history

    Again, let me remind you the history of catchweights and why they were made! A weight that justifies two distinct classes. It wasnít even a case like Ward vs Dawson ffs. Canelo was by then a seasoned Middleweight. Everyone on this forum HOPED FOR NO CATCHWEIGHT. Which wouldíve ideally meant 170-172.

    Now all you betches cry for a 10lb morning rule that even Loma diehards acknowledged for the Rigo fight. You guys donít know shet about boxing if you think the limit is the same thing as an IBF rule.

    Kova got his 175. Kova could be any weight he wanted after the morning weigh in.

    Again, pimping these excuses.

    Because he ducked him for a few years and waited for him to get old he fought an older GGG heading downward in his career and went life and death with him and was only able to squeeze out a tie and a close dec win both of which were all around highly controversial.
    He knows that beating up an even older GGG would make him look like a real cherry pick. Iím glad he moved on we all should too.
