There have only been a few Mexican fighters to become three-division world champions, and this illustrious list includes pugilists such as Julio Cesar Chavez, Erik "El Terrible" Morales, Marco Antonio "The Baby-Faced Assassin" Barrera and Jorge "El Travieso" Arce. If Canelo defeats Fielding and joins this list, he would be the only one to become a three-division world champion in a weight class above 140 pounds.

I am a fan of boxing. If Canelo thinks he is elite, he should fight elite 168 guys.

[QUOTE=JakeTheBoxer;19349453]Beating Fielding proves nothing. Canelo should fight Callum, Uzcategui , ramirez on Benavidez, if he thinks he is good enough for 168.[/QUOTE] So you take issue with a fighter taking on a lower level opponent when moving up in weight?…

I know Broner get dogged for a cherry picking 5 division champ but Canelo should get backlash for fighting this bum in attempt to win a belt at 168
