Mayweather vs. Canelo – My thoughts
I start reading this article and in the opening stanza the writer refers to Alvarez as ”The young pretender”. Such subjectiveness requires no further investigation. This site is laughable at best.Posted July 31, 2013
@errrthang’s a dolla! and you point is, please explain to me where these two guys are now. I am waiting. I am Floyds nr 1 fan not a retard like you,Posted July 31, 2013
pity that’s all one can feel for alvarezPosted July 30, 2013
these guy’s got hope for canelo this is real funny , canelo tries to use the shoulder roll and don’t know what he is doing floyd will hit him all night long with that right and when he tries to defend his head floyd will attack that body the fight will be to fast for canelo he is slow with foot work and his sparring partner’s are hitting him when they want ,,let him drop his hand’s with floyd ,he is donePosted July 30, 2013
Canelo is nothing!Posted July 30, 2013
errrthang’s a dolla!
zab judah knocked down mayweather!
The big mistake that these guys make when facing Floyd, is they fall in love with head hunting the guy… Floyds hard to hit up stairs.. They don’t go to the body nearly enough. If I was training the kid, I’d tell him to double up the jab, and bang the body early, don’t focus at all on the head, unless it’s a gimmie.. And, since Floyds so good at the shoulder roll, high elbow guard, it might make it hard for the kid to land that brutal left to the liver.. they should be working on him moving to his own left to create openings for that left to the body.Posted July 30, 2013
Mayweather = Alfonso RatliffPosted July 30, 2013
I see the same ol same ol on here… Canello has no chance at all..it’s gonna be a blow out.. The kid wont be able to even hit Floyd. Well, tell me this then Floyd fans, Was a older, slower Miguel Cotto not able to to bloody up Floyd?? Even a slow as molases Guerrero was able to hit Floyd a few times.. I know you guys are high on your boy, and that’s fine and dandy, he is the best in the sport, But he aint super man, and this time, he isn’t facing a washed up Cotto, or Old Mosley.Posted July 30, 2013
Nah, 44-1, it is wat it isPosted July 30, 2013
COLOMBIANO: FLOYD FOUGHT COTTO AT 152 LBS AND COTTO WAS 161 LBS. HE IS FIGHTING CANELO AT 152 LBS AND CANELO WILL BE ABOUT 170 LBS WHEN THEY MEET SO WHAT YOUR EXCUSE. GGG CAN EASILY MAKE 154 LBS. YOU KNOW DAME WELL FLOYD WILL NEVER FIGHT HIM. EVEN WHEN GGG BECOMES THE BEST POUND FOR POUND. IT WILL HAPPEN MY FRIEND. I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS GAME FOR OVER 50 YRS AND I KNOW A GREAT FIGHTER.Posted July 30, 2013
Here are the advantages for Floyd against Manny:
Never been knocked down
Manny has never faced a fighter like that man!Posted July 30, 2013
Canelo follows advice from people’s critic about his poor stamina.. Oh boy, Floidroids is gonna be in a dreadful battle.. Scary….Posted July 30, 2013
COLOMBIANO: FLOYD COULD FIGHT HIM AT JR. MIDDLEWEIGHT. I AM SURE GGG WOULD AGREE. BUT YOU KNOW THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN. FLOYD IS NOT STUPID. HE LIKE TO STAY A 50-0.Posted July 30, 2013
Paulie gave u the blue print but he is not a banger
Floyd Mayweather Jr will retire 50-0. All you haters can take that hate to the grave!Posted July 30, 2013
Canelo is nothing like Mike Tyson. He doesn’t have the power, speed or skill.Posted July 30, 2013
Agree. Canelo nor Manny can beat Floyd. The problem is Floyd is not a Middleweight, he is a welterweight man. Why should he try to move up or have GGG move down. GGG needs to be focusing on Canelo, Chavez Jr, Martinez, Lara, Trout or Ward. Floyd is a little dude.
Mayweather need to sit on his 147 pound pound perch and dare anyone to come there and knock him off.Posted July 30, 2013
This business like all other professional sports is a “what have you done for me lately” mentality…Mayweather supporters need to really look at the last few bouts and compare them to the fight with De la hoya. Instead of referring to a Floyd who just beat “Chico” Corrales(RIP)…several years ago.
You’ll notice the movement and reflexes aren’t there anymore. Floyd was caught flush a lot versus Ortiz, Cotto, and even that bum Guerrero.
The problem was that these mentioned boxers don’t have near the amount of punching power and ring intelligence that Canelo possesses.
If you’re unable to distinguish between Canelo and fighters such as Guerrero, Cotto, and Ortiz then you don’t have any business writing about boxing.
Canelo will shock the world September 14th!Posted July 30, 2013
DAN: I BELIEVE YOU ARE CORRECT IN YOUR FORECAST OF THIS FIGHT. I DISAGREE WITH YOU AS TO THE ONLY TWO MEN WHO HAVE A CHANCE TO BEAT FLOYD. I BELIEVE FLOYD WILL BEAT CANELO EASILY. I ALSO THINK FLOYD COULD BEAT MANNY AS WELL TODAY, NOT FIVE YRS AGO. TODAY THERE IS ONLY ONE FIGHTER WHO CAN BEAT FLOYD AND HURT HIM AS WELL. THAT’S GGG. HE IS MADE PERFECTLY FOR FLOYD.Posted July 30, 2013
this fight will be just like mike tyson(canelo) vs. alfonso ratliff (floydie). check it out, the fight is spot on!Posted July 30, 2013
Just can’t c wat canelo is gonna do different to his last fight,which he looked like he was struggling. To say he.s the new sensation in boxing.and Floyd is way better than trout.and trout picked off canelo pretty easily.this cud be a bad mismatch.canelo only fights in bursts. Tht ain’t gonna all of a sudden change. But mayweather will take him out of his comfort zone and make him fight 4 3 min a rnd and tht will exhaust him by rnd 7Posted July 30, 2013
I can’t believe that anyone thinks Canelo will win the fight? The kid is wet behind the ears and only fought mediocre cab driver opposition in Mexico. If anyone thinks this kid has any kind of chance against Floyd I would suggest you seek psychiatric help as soon as possible. Canelo has about as much chance of beating Mayweather than a Penguin has of going to Mars by boat.Posted July 30, 2013
I beat you man. I said it first hahahahahaPosted July 30, 2013
I believe it’s going to be a real good fight. The keys to win on both are Canelo–Use your jab, pace yourself, and get inside
@ Canrex, I’ll be looking for your apology and excuse on this very site August 15th :)Posted July 30, 2013
Floyd will win the fight by a lopsided points decision. Remember my name after the fight because I told you so now.Posted July 30, 2013
Juan Manuel Marquez is better fighter than Canelo.Posted July 30, 2013
watching canelo spar and his sparring partner’s does nothing like floyd and they can it him when they want also canelo try’s to use the shoulder roll the sh– is funny he doesn’t even know how to use it floyd will kill him with strait right’s and hook’s and upper cut’s he still goes back to being flat footed and the opponent stand’s in front of him and hit him with jab’s and right’s and hook’s to the body ,and with him getting gased out and taking shot’s to the body he will look worser than guerreroPosted July 30, 2013
Read the whole post dude. I said his speed will seem to be under developed. This in terms of comparing his speed to Floyd’s. Look man, Canelo is a good fighter, and will continue to improve with age. He will be thoroughly out-classed in this one I’m afraid. Does he have power? Yes. Does he have speed? Yes, but only for a guy his size. Did he beat a legitimate contender? Yes, but Trout is about 3-4 levels below the skill set of Money May and slaps his opponents. Floyd doesn’t possess one punch KO power, but he will embarrass you and swell your face by laser guided missles down the middlePosted July 30, 2013
If Canelo loses, he can point out his age as an excuse. If Floyd loses, he can point out his age as excuse. Both would have a point, especially Mayweather.
The more and more I read the comments on this site the more I realize that there are a LOT of people out there who know absolutely nothing about boxing. Canelo by far is boxing’s biggest hype job ever! The kid is getting by on his looks alone! He is not the favored fighter in Mexico, Marquez is! He has fought NOBODY to earn a shot at Mayweather. Non the less he will get exposed and his dilusional fans will come up with every excuse in the book as to why he lost. I cannot wait for the exposure and destruction of this chump to take place. Maybe after he has his a** handed to him, the boxing world will make him fight reall contenders in his weight class and that’s when the real truth about Cinnabun comes out. Carlos Molina, Lara, Andrade, Kid Chocolate, Sergio, GGG and Chavez Jr ALL give Cinnabun a beatin!!!!Posted July 30, 2013
good artucle but you failed to mention that floyd also faced most of the better opponents past their prime or at a catchweight. this is why to me he is a good business guy than a true boxer trying to be a legend. floyd will be running like an OLYMPIC runner when he feels that first punch, he will get many of those anx one of them is going to knock him out.Posted July 30, 2013
canelo by KO on 3 or 4Posted July 30, 2013
Good article. I do think mayweather will win this fight against caneloPosted July 30, 2013
when canelo was 19 but they were putting slob’s on his resume he said no, keep up with history they say he wasn’t ready hell he hasn’t improved at all except gaining weight and fighting little guy’sPosted July 30, 2013
Hahahaha canelo will ko money?? Get lost kid not in this century this fight is so easy to call since 1. Canelo runs out of gas we all know that 2. Money is the quickest/sneakiest fighter out there so how can u expect canelo to keep up especially with those extra pounds he’s been cheating his opponents come on the guy fought josesito Lopez who I believe was a 140 pounder before Ortiz went to 154 fighting a fighter coming in at 165+ what a joke than they say GGG is to big for him plz I’m 100% Mexican and not floyds biggest fan but let’s be real canelo is a celebrity who was started by televisa and now in control of de LA hoya. And let’s say he wins can u really give a middle weight fighter for beating a welter weight?? I cantPosted July 30, 2013
His hand speed will seem UNDER-developed
175 VS 147 ON FIGHT NIGHT NO MATTER WHAT WEIGHT CANELO COME’S IN HE STILL GASES OUT LOLPosted July 30, 2013
DON’T FORGET CANELO WAS CALLED OUT BY MONEY WHEN HE WAS 19 AND E IS STILL THE SAME CANELO DON’T FORGETPosted July 30, 2013
