I don't think he necessarily will be "coming in big". He's a big dude. He really shouldn't even be fighting at 154. I think if you let a guy who's probably best at 165-170, rehydrate to whatever he wants, you're asking to take on a lot of wear and tear in that fight.


I know Canelo is still young and has strong recouperative abilities, but the drying out and rehydrating process will take something out of him versus him only gaining a few pounds on fight night. He only fights in spurts against guys who are not as athletic and defensive as Floyd. Trout has good movement, but sans being in Tejas, if he would have thrown a bit more he would have won that fight. I know many thought he may have won anyway, but it was close and could have went either way.

I am now of the thinking that if Floyd wants to fight Canelo, dont add the hydration clause. Canelo has stamina issues and we now see that Floyd still has great reflexes and legs. Canelo will probably think coming in as big as possible is his advantage. After he has to chase Floyd for a few rounds blown up as big as possible, Floyd can work his ass from rounds 5-12.




Yeap.. I am sure Sr would craft a strategy right behind what you describe. Based on what I saw last week from Floyd Canelo could get whipped up worse than Guerrero...he is a conventional style fighter... easier for Floyd

Well we know that he did do over a million buys but after reading some comments on other message boards; the numbers are a lie and the full spin is in.

Ticket sales came in at 9.9 mill gross. So it wasn't a sell out

Not for nothing, but Showtime/CBS removed a giant section of seating in order to create a VIP area for network execs....that might have had a little something to do with the numbers.

I highly doubt that had anything to do with it. The attendance didn't even crack 16 thousand, and many people were complaining leading up to the fight how it had ZERO buzz. Guerrero did NOT connect with the people the way GB and Team Mayweather thought he would

I looked around the arena and kept saying to myself that it would fill up and it really never did, plus you have to factor in those dreaded re-sellers. Aint nobody in they right mind going to pay $250 for seats way up in the MGM to see Guerrero fight. I got my tix the moment they came out and that's how I always do, those re-seller dealers will bleed you dry

I knew there was somewhat of a shortcoming as far as Guerrero's popularity when Floyd didn't get booed. Floyd even said, on an interview in NYC, that while he sees Guerrero as a more than worthy opponent, he was basically carrying the sales himself because Guerrero isn't a household name. Floyd almost always gets a shit load of boos. He really couldn't play the villain role this time because nobody saw Guerrero as a real hero.

Showtime head Steve Espinoza says the fight will do "plus or minus" one million buys. Official figures to be announced in the next few weeks:
