[QUOTE=PRINCEKOOL;20967479]Canelo's Alvarez's competition has gotten worst, he has not improved technically 'Not buying into this illusion, that he has greatly improved since the Mayweather fight'. Mayweather was not at his peak mate, and shut him out pretty much 12-0 etc[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=Pantera_;20967258]The 22 year old 152 lb Canelo that fought Mayweather isn't nearly as good as the Prime Canelo you see today. It's literally a night and day difference. Canelo is P4P king now.[/QUOTE] Canelo copied a lot of Mayweather's moves…
