Dats some deep stuff. Well at least we have some writers that arent biased. We need more people like that in the media or at least on tv on a regular basis especially for the sport of boxing.

Brutal attack piece. Typical Grantland, getting readership with sensationalism.

This article explains a lot about the rise of Canelo. He is a fucking Teen Beat Heart Throb. He knows how his bread is buttered. I am just curious how he rebounds. Plus in the article other Mexican boxers see him as a fraud. So what does that tell you?

He isn't a fraud though. He beat a really good fighter in Trout and he has a great combination of power and speed. He is also improving as a defensive fighter. I can't think of any 154 pounder that I would pick over him. He also sold out that arena in Texas and brought a TON of fans to Vegas.

Clearly you didn't read the article. He lost to Trout and many saw how his power was so dominate in the May fight! Mayweather did not have a red mark on him. The kid is fucking Teeny Bopper. Whenever he faces anyone with game he is going to be up shit creek. Lara would tax him and too be honest I think Kirkland would tax him as well. But we will see where Canelo goes from here.

One article, though well written doesn't mean Canelo is a fraud or anything like that. He actually is a solid fighter, not an A level fighter, but with enough time he'll get higher. He paid the price for being young...after the 4th you could clearly see how his ego can't handle the lack of success in the ring. He was getting frustrated like a little kid, which he still is. Floyd is a smart mofo, he takes advantage of these young fighters and exposes them with ease...and makes an awful lot of money.

The article has some valid points, but Saul is not a joke...they rushed him too damn quick and that was his downfall on saturday. Moreover, a 23 year old boy fought a future HOF, one of the GOATS and a MASTER boxer having only beaten one serious opponent.
