I would ask everyone not to get ahead of themselves.

I was one of the people who predicted that Canelo would win a decision over Trout. I based this off of watching the Delvin Rodriguez and Miguel Cotto fights. I saw a fighter who was slippery enough to make the other guy miss, but someone who lacked both respectable power or accuracy. Against a marketable fighter like Canelo, you're simply not going to be awarded rounds. Even then, I technically had Trout ahead at the end of it all.

Floyd Mayweather is on another level. He's one of the most accurate punchers the game has ever seen. His punches are so accurate and often timed so well that even without true power at higher weights, you find your head snapping back, because you're walking into straight right hand leads.

The other point here is of conditioning. Canelo hasn't shown himself to be a relentless stalker with a battery like the Energizer Bunny. Floyd could literally keep turning him and popping and moving the entire fight and Canelo would be dumbfounded by the middle rounds, given the class of boxing technique and ability he was up against.

For those of you who subscribe to the popular theory where Floyd's "legs are gone", well, let's say he's up against the ropes with Canelo's head in neck, flailing away with punches to the body and occasional uppercuts. Well, I can tell you that he simply won't be landing much of his punches at all. Floyd on the other hand, would be countering sharply from different angles.

Is Canelo a good young fighter who took a major step today ? Yes. Is he on the level where people can start saying that he would defeat Floyd Mayweather ?

Nope.


i don't recall marketability being one of the judging criteria. i had canelo losing.

he didn't take a major step. he was given a gift.

The worse thing about my business trip was my boss who is a big Pacquaio fan kept talking to me about how Pac would mop the floor with Saul Alvarez and GGG. I just looked at my boss and grinned. I said "Sir, with all do respect, do you think he can mop the floor with Marquez?" He did not speak to me the rest of the trip then he started to say at least "My guy isn't a thug like yours." One of the bankers told me he was putting 10k on Guerrero, he said he likes his spirit another investor told me he was putting 5k on Guerrero because he felt Floyd lost the Cotto fight. They asked me my opinion and I simply said "Go for it. You are right. Mayweather is going to get his ass handed to him."

This sir, is why you didn't Showtime in your room. He straight called the front desk, and made them take it off your tv! Dolimite, you gotta do better man. LOL

Now, if all of those guys were off the clock, then you should've slapped each and every one of them. If yall were on the clock, then your last reply was the best way to go. Lol

Checking on PPV Prices. UGGHHHH! My cable company is charging $70.00 for the HD feed. $60.00 for SD. (TWC.) This is the first fight with the $10 increase for HD that they have done.

The Fight WILL Be in Closed Circuit Theaters Nationwide! Tickets will probably be only $20, as opposed to $60-70 for the PPV:
