    replied to A worrying Canelo statistic.
    Alvarez's run at 168 hasn't aged that well has it? Not that Saunders and Plant aren't good wins but they aren't exactly unbeatable.

    He thought he could unify all the belts by targeting the champions at a average division and take a leap to cruiserweight against a aged Ilunga Makabu without...

    replied to A worrying Canelo statistic.
    Plant is a solid win, but Canelo needs a big fight now that he is close at the end of his career. Doesn't matter if he wins or loses like Benavidez/Morrell/Bivol/Beterviec, just don't want him to sit on the belts at 168 like Crawford and Spence did with the pretext that he "earned" to pick...

  • I didn't know he was still active, last time he fought it was 2022 against Berlanga.

    Pacheco definitely needs to take on Angulo if possible.

  • Mosley was 41 years old having a losing streak and Cotto was at the end of his career at 35 years old. He also had a catchweight of 155 and could only rehydrate 10 pounds due to the contract. Kovalev and Jacobs also had a rehydration clause. The former stating he was too worn down by the two consecutive...

  • Actually good fight, prefer it if he fought Benavidez but this will be entertaining to see and it will say where Canelo stands currently. (Declining but still dangerous or near retirement.)

  • Well to be fair, you could explain what are Canelo's best wins instead of diminishing Chavez's.

    Personally I view Chavez having faced more consistent and fresher opposition whether its accomplished champions or ranked contenders (of course he took stay busy fights, but he fought more than...

    replied to Canelo should fight Golovkin again
    Eh, don't want to see a fourth fight where both fighters have already declined. Three are good enough.

    Rather see Canelo fight what's considered top opposition these days. But if he only wants exhibition fights like Munguia and Berlanga, that's fine. Just wish he let the belts go so the...

  • At this point it just feels like he is feigning ignorance, Camacho (40-1) has beaten Ramirez, Davis Jr, Rosario, Mancini, Pazienza and Haugen.

    Rosario was also a pretty big puncher with good defense, by the time he fought Chavez Sr he was (31-2, 27 KOs) with wins over Edwin Viruet, Ramirez,...

  • By the way, this question might not be related to the thread, but why does Roberto Duran of all people back Canelo?

    He stated that Canelo is going to be remembered as a greater fighter than Chavez Sr, but it's not like Julio and Roberto have a sour relationship or anything of the like....

  • He does, but most of Canelo's opponents aren't better than Danny Lopez. At least those he beat.

    Guy was like the featherweight GGG, 42 wins with 39 KOs. (6 losses though), Sal stopped him twice.

    Danny had beaten Mike Ayala, Chucho Castillo and Ruben Olivares. Definitely more...

    replied to What happened to Brandun Lee?
    He had two fights in 2023, but his last fight was like 9-10 months ago. I think his promoters are trying to wait till the first card in Amazon prime takes place and put him in the undercard of another fight.

    He doesn't exactly have a big following and his managers are likely not optimistic...

  • I think his win over Juan Laporte is not on par with Lopez, Nelson and Gomez, but it is a bit underrated. Laporte had stopped Rocky Lockridge in two rounds and had a controversial loss to Eusebio Pedroza, it was so close that Jose Saluiman tried to give him a match him with Salvador Sanchez for the...

  • I think Canelo has achieved more than Zarate and Olivares, but he isn't that far ahead compared to both fighters.

    Zarate most impressive feature of his record was his knockout streak, having wins over (66-4, 63 KOs), but he had:

    -Beat Rodolfo Martinez (42-3-1), a champ who...

  • Me personally I don't think so, Chavez had more consistent wins against fresher opposition.

    Having controversially a draw against Whitaker because of styles like Canelo/Mayweather did due to age or skill doesn't really impact my view in their perspective legacies.

    Chavez holds...

  • I believe Andy Cruz will have 3 more fights before fighting a ranked opponent, and compete in two divisions (135-140).

    On who he can fight, well I think he can fight the likes of Angel Fierro, Devin Haney, Liam Paro, Subriel Matias, Dalton Smith, Regis Prograis and Richardson Hitchins at...

  • Didn't Ellerbe state that Tank whose a lightweight, would trash Thurman?

    But it's disrespectful that people are favoring a active top fighter in Tszyu whose from a division above?

  • I agree, to me at least, it's absurd how people downplay and degrade a fighter based on losing against top opposition.

    Boxing fans have been doing so quite a while and sadly it seems to be trending in MMA (UFC) recently. Where a fighter used to lose with no backlash and bounce back....

  • Agree to disagree, but while I do think movers are what give Canelo the most problem. I think he can be beaten by getting outworked aswell.

    I am not saying it's a impossible task for Canelo, just that David brings his own set of problems similarly to how GGG and Jacobs did. He has the height...
