What a disappointing night for Canelo.
He had a terrible game plan.
If and I say IF, Mayweather will ever be beaten it won't be from a guy trying to outbox him. (I don't know why at times Canelo was trying to box with him) To try to beat Mayweather you have to make the fight dirty. Drag him into a brawl. You have to make every punch count, and you have to be conditioned to throw hundreds of punches per round because Floyd will probably block 90% of them. With Floyd you have to not concentrate on actually winning rounds, you have to concentrate on getting him hurt, and going for a KD.
Yes I know it is easier said done, but Canelo and his team should have trained him for that kind of game plan than the one he had on Saturday. Trying to box, ineffectively cutting off the ring, not throwing punches when Floyd was on the ropes was painful to watch.
