CaneloWeighs172+lbs

What Canelo doesn’t realize is that 1. He’s still a nobody in Boxing.. only really known to his Mexican Fans… 2. Floyd is incredibly Wealthy and has made more money in one year than all Mexican fighters combined over the past decade. 3. It’s more important to Floyd to retire unbeaten then to take a chance with a cheater who balloons up in weight like Canelo coming into his fights as a light Heavy weighing well over 172+lbs.. 4. Floyd can easily make his next 5 fights and never even look at Canelo and still make a few more hundred Million 5. Canelo will have a tough task taking on the guys his true size and weight like Quinlin, Rosado, Martinez, Love, GGG…

CaneloWeighs172+lbs

Ray – Canelo just needs to agree to fight Floyd at 147 and the rehydration clause and he has a fight.. and if he doesn’t then he needs to move on to fight his Mandatories like Lara, Quinlin or Rosado… Cotto would Gladly have a rematch with Floyd at 147 or 154lbs.. why would May agree to 154lbs with Cotto and not Canelo? because he knows Cotto is clean and would not come into the fight fight weighing 172+lbs come fight night…

If Cotto only hydrates a few pounds then thats his fault for going up in weight, Canelo is in a good weight class for his size.

This thing with Canelo being a 154 pound champ and fight night coming in 170-172 is bullsh**, Cotto does not stand a chance, Cotto will come in at 158-160 at best, Canelo by TKO in the 6th or 7th, and I love Cotto, but fighting a 172 pound 22 year old young lion? Tall order.

Posted May 16, 2013 9:03 pm 


Dino

Here we go again, Cotto will come in fight night 157-158 at best, Canelo 170-172 easy. Why is Canelo not fighting at 160, I love Cotto, classy guy and gave us many great fights, but why he would step in with a 170 pounder is beyond me, don’t see him winning this one, Canelo will be too strong.

I’m a Cotto fan, but I think Exiled Yank is probably right. I’ll be rooting for Cotto, but the brutal fights Margacheato and Pacquiao have taken their toll. He’s not the same savage body puncher he once was.

Posted May 16, 2013 6:02 pm 


Exiled Yank

Cotto has had problems in the past with getting tired n the late rounds too. As for Canelo, I thought he looked good in the late rounds, if anything, he seemed to get better. At this point I think Cotto is on the way down and Canelo is on the way. This fight is better for Canelo than FM. He is not ready for FM at this point, but Cotto is a live, experienced former champion who is tough as nails. He will give Canelo a stiff challenge, but most likely Canelo will win.

Posted May 16, 2013 1:56 pm

If Cotto has a great chance at beating Canelo then why would anyone want weight restrictions for that fight? And if Canelo tires out easily then why handicap him even more? Something tells me the Cotto fans arent too sure if he can really beat Canelo…lol

If Cotto demands that Canelo isn’t allowed to balloon up to 172+lbs and limits his weight gain to a few pounds Cotto has a great Chance because Canelo oddly tires out quickly after a few fast paced rounds probably a side effect of years on Steriods…

Posted May 16, 2013 12:03 pm

All that money is thanks to mexican fighters. If Guerrero and Khan are calling out Mayweather, I think Canelo has every right to call him out ( not that Mayweather would want to fight him at 154lbs.)

Canelo vs Mayweather = a huge PPV crowd and lots of $$$. Canelo vs Cotto = also good money but Canelo would destroy him.

Posted May 16, 2013 11:32 am 


Caper

The red head would most likely prevail as he holds almost every physical advantage over cotto though I would completely dismiss a win for the old man since I still believe he has a certain ring savvy and skill set that canelo has yet to face. It would be an intriguing match up that would ultimately tell us if cotto can still perform at the top level with certain non movers.

Posted May 16, 2013 10:47 am

Floyd has made more money in the Ring in one year then all Mexicans Boxers combined over the past Decade… Canelo is a nobody to be demanding anything from Floyd.. Floyd knows the kid cheats with his weight and isn’t going to allow Canelo to pull the weight gain stunt on him…

“since when do up and coming boxers make demands on ATG/#1P4P/ PPV King.” You don’t have to admit it Happyboy, but Canelo does have leverage as he is a superstar in his own right. Yeah, he’s up and coming but he’s a superstar in Mexico and in a good portion of the U.S. as well. Floyd is the big draw and the PPV king, but Canelo is hot property and would be a big, big win in Mayweather’s cap. Canelo has leverage. Wait and see.

te tumbo

HAPPYBOY, what “demands” are you referring too? otherwise, it’s a challenge at 154lbs where as you pointed out Floyd previously faced DLH and Cotto with no conditions. i personally think it’s smart for Mayweather to initiate negotiations with the 147lb condition. IMO, that’s all it is: a negotiating baseline. Floyd only really haggles over purse-split and testing. if those Mayweather conditions are met, i’m confident that Floyd will agree to face Canelo at 154lbs. even though i don’t need to see that again and i definitely don’t want to watch a severely handicapped Canelo at 147lbs. not even Cotto can make that weight any more and he’s a natural welter.

te tumbo

the only “problem” Canelo would have v. Cotto is whether to finish him off early in explosive and spectacular fashion or to string him along for 8-10 rounds and showcase his boxing superiority before ending it in the later rounds. however, the “problem” is that Cotto has always had stamina problems. these are only exacerbated by the thoughts of domestic comfort that Cotto conceded enter his head when the going gets too rough, tough, and rugged (e.g. v. Margarito). in which case, Canelo will have to carefully hold Cotto up if he wants to end it after 10. otherwise, he crushes Cotto within 8, which is about Cotto’s stamina-threshold in busy and intense fights.

Posted May 15, 2013 3:32 pm

since when do up and coming boxers make demands on ATG/#1P4P/ PPV King. Did Floyd make any demands on Oscar or did he agree to his demands even though he was already a multi division champion, rated on the P4P list, won fighter of the year, wtf has Canelo done besides fooling casual fans into thinking his a powerful boxer by beating up WW & JWW when his actually a LHW on fight night. If Canelo was really a JMW he would be able to come down to 147lbs but since his not his unable to down just like Mayweather can’t go up to LHW, SMW or MW.

Finally!!! Canelo’s chin will be tested, and I believe exposed. Cotto’s older brother would have knocked him out if he would have had good finishing skills —- and that is what Cotto has… Hmmmm…. Cotto might have another shot at the title after exposing this kid. :)

First off the Cotto fight wasn’t boring. Don’t think anybody would say he is Floyd’s leftovers. Cotto was still winning fights and had a title when he fought Floyd. Floyd didn’t make him lose any weight to drain him. He didn’t have to put plaster in his gloves to beat him. Floyd beat him fair and square. You are only looking for excuses cause you hate Floyd. But that’s what happens when you make it, folks constantly hate in you

Canelo-Cotto is not a fight I want to see… It would be a reluctant beatdown — like Holmes having to punch the crap out of Ali. You can easily tell when a boxer is disgusted with the work he’s doing. They’re paying you millions of dollars so you’re going to beat up your mother if that’s the job. I’ve seen a hundred opportunities for brothers to fight each other professionally.. I’ve never seen them do it.. But one day a couple of brothers will when you pay them enough.. Few fans but Tumbo would enjoy the spectacle of watching a young lion like Canelo bomb the daylights out of Cotto.. I’d like to see Cotto retire. He’s a 3-Division World Champion and an ATG. He’s done enough. He’s rich. He’s famous. His family is well off. He can only diminish his legacy from here, and I don’t think Canelo wants to help him do that — although he would do it if his managers asked him to … He’s a professional. There’s aspects of everybody’s job they don’t like.

Cotto is a Handicap 50% fighter BRUTALIZED by hands of plaster Magarito and PED Paquiao THATS WHY THE #1P4P CHERRYPICKER Floyd WENT UP IN WEIGHT 154 POUNDS AND FOUGHT BORINGLY AGAINST Cotto, Floyds fans just wants a chance to say that after Canelo beats Cotto that Cotto ws Floyds Leftovers, and in Reality Cotto is Magarito and Paquiao Leftover.

I don’t think this is a good fight for Cotto. Canelo is too young, and too big for Him. Cotto is a warrior and he still has some skills, but I don’t see how he could win this fight. It would probably be a fun fight, but in the end I think Cotto would get beat down by the middle to later rounds.

Posted May 15, 2013 11:40 am 


Hidalgo

“And you need to do the fight right NOW!! ” Tark, is it harder for a boxer like Canelo to drop to a lower weight or rehydrate to a limited weight? I’m thinking that in Canelo’s case, both would be equally difficult for him to do. If the guy could move between welterweight and jr. middleweight as easily as Floyd does, he would already be doing it. However, Canelo hasn’t fought as a welterweight since 2010. Still, Canelo has come into the ring in two of his last three fights at around 166 lbs. Is this a result of training for a specific opponent, or is it an indication of inconsistent training practices? In other words, did Canelo train to come in at around 170 because his trainer new Trout would be coming in around that weight? I think you previously suggested that Canelo could agree to a 165 rehydration weight limit. My opinion is that if Canelo agrees either to drop to 147 or to a rehydration weight limit (fight night weight) he will have to fight a very energy-conserving fight. And I think he will lose to Floyd whether he agrees to any weight restrictions or not. Of course, Floyd won’t fight him if he won’t do one or the other so we’ll never get to see a 154 lb. fight.

In my opinion, Cotto is better off challenging Ishe Smith if Ishe gets past Molina. I am still not convinced Cotto should be fighting at 154. I feel belongs at 147 and the move down would make for more interesting matchups. I am a HUGE Cotto fan, but any experience advantage Cotto has against Canelo will be nullified once he gets bloodied up. I don’t think his face can hold up to Canelo’s power. There would be hype to the fight but it wouldn’t go the distance, Cotto would resort to hopping on his bike the later rounds.

Posted May 15, 2013 10:02 am 


KangriPR

Cotto is not a natural 154 pounder, should bet at 147 but refuses to cut down. I prefer Cotto fight Ishe Smith. I am a HUGE Cotto fan, but the exerience advantages he would have against Canelo would be nullified once he gets bloodied up which will happen early in a fight with Canelo. Cotto’s face can’t hold up anymore, the fight would not go the distance.

Tark – a damaged Cotto thanks to the Master Of Plaster MargaCheato, who was forced to be weight drained below the fight weight.. gives Paquiao his toughest match at that time then goes on and Retires MargaCheato, and gives Floyd his toughest match to date, Floyds own Words.. Cotto is Far from done and on an even playing field with Canelo not pulling his Tijuana Weight Gain Trick Ballooning up to 172+lbs would give Canelo a very tough fight.. and considering how beatable Canelo looked vs Featherfisted Trout.. I can see why Canelos people wouldn’t take a chance with even an old, smaller, worn Cotto… but who would Canelo fight? Lara? Quinlin? Rosado? he has to fight these guys or he has to give up those belts..

Both cotto and canelo have shown engine problems later in fights so that could be evens, though cot to more recently cot to has upped his engine. Young sportspeople often need years to develop stamina . in football it take several stern preseasons to get the engine ready for full games and extra time, so cotto may have the advantage here. Canelos advantage is he is naturally bigger and stronger with much more improvement and upside to come. It’d be a ripper fight IMO.

Posted May 15, 2013 3:56 am 


Tnt

Fans are ridiculous. I think the writer is right. Boxers should earn the right to fight the best (mayweather). Canelo was had only one decent fight in his 43 wins. He now needs to climb the ladder by beating people like Cotto etc before he deserves a shot at Mayweather. In every sport and in all walks of life this is what happens. I think some people are just praying for Mayweather’s downfall. This is stupid if you are a real fan of boxing. This is because the sport will experience some lean times with casual fans switching to other sports. Additionally, you are watching a one in a million fighter who is exceptionally gifted. Appreciate him while he is here because once his gone there will be nothing like him for a very long time.
If you love the sport logically u should not hate mayweather.

Let’s see… Canelo has 43 fights. He’s the best fighter in the world at 154. But he can’t exert himself because he turns red and starts breathing really hard. What a pile of rubbish. Canelo fought at a measured pace vs Trout because he was way ahead on the scorecards. What’s he going to do? Take a lot of stupid chances when he’s miles ahead in the most important fight of his life? He was never breathing hard. He never turned red. The pace was measured, and not super slow. Trout couldn’t find Canelo with anything damaging. Canelo hurt Trout significantly.

Canelo had plenty of opportunity to work on his defensive skills and they were impressive. Trout was forced to take the offensive because he was way behind. He just couldn’t break through Canelo’s defenses in a meaningful or sustained way—or had a prayer of turning the fight around … and that really surprised Trout … the craft and elusiveness of Canelo.

Cotto is easy to hit of late.. Look at his face following his last two fights. Canelo was almost spotless after his victory over Trout—a paragon of defense—but Trout punished Cotto severely. Canelo would bring every weapon in Boxing at Cotto. He would out-speed the diminished ATG, out-work him, out-box him, out-punch him, and just flat out pound Cotto straight into the canvas. It would be a massive humiliation that no one wants to see visited on such a great fighter as Cotto. Let’s not revisit Ali-Holmes.

Let’s not talk about Canelo-Cotto right now… Cotto suffered a couple lopsided defeats in a row.. He’s yesterday’s hero.. Does Canelo want to go forward with his career or backwards??? He already beat one guy who has a lopsided victory over Cotto.. Fight the other guy.. Fight the number one guy in the sport.. Kick his ass all over the ring and take over his lofty status.. That is what going forward should look like..

Losing to Floyd wouldn’t hurt you either. Everyone else has lost to Floyd. The money is super massive. Everybody in the Western Hemisphere will be watching the fight with intensity. And you need to do the fight right NOW!! You won’t be able to make 154 much longer. Maybe one or 2 more fights and you’ll outgrow the class.. You’ll be fighting GGG, Martinez, and Quillin, and a chance to fight Floyd will evaporate in the mist.

I can tell you this.. If Canelo runs out of Gas against Cotto in the 5th. Like he did vs light hitter trout.. gasping for air helpless against the ropes he’s going to get KTFO….

drug testing at random, rehydration clauses, anything that could give him an unfair advantage!

The author made some good points, but I’m not sure how hard Cotto will be pushing the action after he’s tasted that serious power of Canelo.

Cotto has no business fighting Canelo. His best days are gone, and he has been in steady decline for awhile now. Cotto’s family deserves better than to see him get battered over and over again, and I’ll promise you one thing. If he fights Canelo, he will be made a stepping stone. Canelo is a young strong kid that still needs more experience and may have it tough for 4-5 rounds, but in the end, he’s going to give Miguel Cotto a battering. Cotto doesn’t need the money, and he’s chasing his youth that no longer exists. Miguel Cotto was a tremendous champion in his prime. He represented his country and his fans at the highest level and even gave Mayweather a run for his money at his advanced age and in a weight class that he doesn’t belong in. His time is over, and he should not be putting his family in a situation where they are at ringside crying at the site of him taking a beating. Boxing is a young mans game, and those that are pushing Miguel to continue fighting should be arrested and sent to jail. Miguel Cotto is a decent human being that has always given fans 150%. He came to fight, and never cheated fans with his efforts and courage. Some times, you have to step in and say enough is enough. It’s time to hang em up Miguel. Enjoy your family and friends while you still can. This is a bad, bad match up.

Mayweather knows damn well that Canelo can’t make 147 and to this writer your obviously not a boxing fan but a fan of certain fighters, cotto beating Canelo let’s be real!

Haha this writer does not like Canelo at all!, but anyways first it was said like this” Canelo should fight trout he’s his size yada yada Canelo will never take that fight and what happened he took the fight, another thing is Canelo was criticized for all kinds of things and this writer doesn’t realize that all he had left to criticize Canelo about was his stamina, because the kid showed head movement, counter punching skills and moved really well around the ring and he he got winded its caus in this very fight it was about revenge so he wanted to knock him out but trouts defense is slick you know he’s a southpaw, and a great fighter, now against cotto all I’m going to say for whatever reason cotto was never the same after margarito he gets caught flush and it throws Him off anyway that fight will be over in about 8 rounds not taking anything from cotto but it is what it is

Kidding aside Canelo is pretty much screwed.. he’s got some stiff competition all around him.. Mayweather, Cotto on the top $ end and Lara, Quinlin, Rosado, Martinez on the Mandatory Challengers belt side of it.. It’s show time for Canelo.. can’t see him getting out of 2013 without a serious loss…

@pe- you know damn well Canelo would never agree to such terms! lol. How you been buddy?

Random Blood testing and a 5lb weight gain limitation and it’s on Baby.. Cotto is going to expose Canelo..

Can’t be the WBC aka “We Be Crooks” because they’ve been in bed with Canelo since day one.. it would have to be the WBO.. the most legit of the Boxing Organizations…

Is it the WBC that says you can’t weigh more than 10lbs over your opponent on fight night?

Posted May 14, 2013 8:06 pm

As long as Cotto demands Random Blood testing and Weight Gain Limits it’s a good fight..

Cotto is a veteran. And a strong guy. Canelo-Cotto fight is 50/50.

Lara fight won’t come off unless there is a purse bid.

I think Cotto still has a lil something left. Just have to be careful who they match him with

Might I add @ 154, no more!

Cotto can be effective against this guy, possibly the same way he surprised me by outboxing Mosley! I thought there was no way Cotto could outpoint Mosley the way he did – and in such a calm “boxers” methodical manner….it was admirable! To me, Cotto legitimately lost only to Trout and Mayweather, so maybe he can muster some confidence @ this stage of his career, for Canelos “front runner” issues. Hey, slylz’ (and endurance in this case) make fights!

The Best!

Trout made Cotto look like a litle boy in there. Canelo would humiliate Cotto

After reading this article it makes a lot more sense for Mayweather to scrap his 147 demand, which Canelo can’t make, and take him on at 154. If Cotto gives Canelo a tough fight, imagine what Floyd would do to him. No other fight for Floyd would create as much interest.

philly shell

Big Cotto fan, and while I’d never bet against him, I doubt he has enough left to beat a 170+ lb fighter at this stage of his career. He was never a big welterweight, and he’s certainly small for the jr middleweight division.

Posted May 14, 2013 7:11 pm 


Q

Being honest, I don’t doubt that Cotto could beat Canelo to be honest with you…. especially after Canelo gasses in the 5th round. However, his mandatory is Lara, and that’s who I think he should fight.

Cotto could give Canelo a lot of problems
