i really dont see anymore growth in canelo. he is as good as he's ever gonna be.
If canelo was such a technical fighter he would have been able to do what cotto did to alfonso gomez
gomez was frustrating the great technical boxer that is canelo and won on a very weak stoppage
but gomez against the flawed boxer/puncher that is cotto he is getting schooled
people over rate canelo abilities. what i keep hearing when they over rate his abilities is the word "potential"
based on his victories over j.cotto, m.hatton, r.rhodes, and shane there is no potential growth with this guy. each one of those fights were showcase fights in which he was suppose to win at the latest mid round ko, tko stoppage but he didnt
I could not have worded this better myself.
