MORNING TED THE BULL KID BLAST IMREADY TEDDY FOR SATURDAY NIGHTPosted September 12, 2013 12:07 pm
There is monster money to be made in a rematch should Mayweather somehow lose. Thus a disgraceful decision against Floyd is not totally out of the realm of possibility, particularly in Las Vegas where money talks and walks—no pun intended. While highly-respected Kenny Bayless will be the referee, Judge C.J. Ross is cause for concern as she will be remembered for scoring the Pacquiao-Bradley fight for Bradley, 115-113. Craig Metcalfe is less established and experienced, and this hardly seems the fight for a learning experience. Thankfully, Dave Moretti is solid.
Another caveat is if Canelo cannot reach 152, comes in overweight, pays whatever fine is posted, and Team Alvarez informs Team Mayweather that what was good for Juan Manuel Marquez should be good for Floyd. Then Alvarez becomes an even more formidable opponent, not that he should be taken lightly at the catchweight—again no pun intended.
Everything that needs to be said has been said. Indeed, if ever a fight has been overhyped, this is The One.Posted September 12, 2013 11:57 am

Canelo needs to leave no stone unturned in his preparation for this fight.
If I was training him, then this week I`d work especially on relaxation and focus.
I`d do lots of aromatherapy. I`d put the smells on a hankerchief, and have Canelo smell them, like..
Here Canelo, smell this, this one is mint, it will help clear your mind.

Canelo didn’t dominate trout, Trout had Canelo helpless against the ropes in the 3rd round after canelo gassed out gasping for air not defending himself.. Canelo is lucky Trout couldn’t punch his way out of a paper bag.. if a 41 year old Mosely could box Canelos ears off and Cotto’s C level Brother put Canelo on noodle legs then Mayweather will surely stop this Hype Job..Posted September 11, 2013 9:39 pm
Are u ferion canelo or inferior, we will see.Posted September 11, 2013 9:17 pm
Based on what I’ve heard people feel that Canelo is a good punching bag and mayweather can’t hurt him, well if that is the case canelo could just run in hap hasard and wing punches cause of course mayweather can’t hurt him with his brittle busted up hand, lol. I’m 41, I don’t feel old and Mayweather what 37, hell I know he don’t feel old. Mayweather going be beotch slapping Canelo in this fight. Canelo punches are like medium speed, Mayweather has faster hand speed and I think that will be apparent in the fight. Mayweather is going to bust this kid up, tenderize him and by the late rounds Canelo eyes will be swollen, will be bleeding from the nose and mouth, be cut above one eye. Remember the work martinez did on poor chavez jr and the work 40+ year old did on 20 something pavlik. Canelo has slip in some lucky bomb in their somewhere or he is going look like the one who just got beat up in a back alley not mayweather. This fight is going be fun to watch, lol. Canelo well is going have be like Vin Diesel taking on 100 scorpion on some ferion like planet.

As most people out there, I believe Mayweather to be a much more complete and skillful fighter than Canelo. Canelo has age and punching power on his favor perhaps, and still we have seen how he seems to fade on the later rounds. I think Canelo’s best bet would be to go for an early. kill. If he is able to score a KD or even hurt Mayweather early, Mayweather would feel the need to engage and then Alvarez would have a target to hit. If this is not the case, I see Mayweather winning a very boring fight on points.Posted September 11, 2013 8:53 pm
Canelo domination of Trout was no less than Mayweather’s domination of Guerrero. there isn’t a single boxing category in which Canelo didn’t outclass Trout: offense, defense, or footwork. there wasn’t a single punch that i could describe as Trout’s “best punch”. he didn’t land one. he did well to survive a bout in which he was utterly and completely ineffective. “Shocked” is the word that Trout chose to describe their encounter and he would know.Posted September 11, 2013 8:31 pm
He’s actually looked pretty average and beatable in his last few fights.. that’s the reason Mayweather wanted to fight him.. If he looked like an unbeatable fighter no way Mayweather fights him..Posted September 11, 2013 8:26 pm

Hidalgo.., That’s a great point.., Just another propaganda line that idiot Floydiots have been putting out there.

“Canelo is as good as he is ever going to get ”
This is a lame statement based on ignorance. Canelo gets better with every fight. Win, lose, or draw, he’ll be a better fighter after next Saturday night. Every bout is a learning experience. Every opponent teaches a boxer something new about himself. This kid is only 23 years old, holds several belts, and he’s about to face one of the best boxer’s in the world. But he’s hardly reached his peak.Posted September 11, 2013 7:40 pm
flash knock down… You have Trout beating Canelo 8 rounds to 4… That’s 115-112 with the knockdown 2-point round.
Of the 3 judges… the 3 American TV commentators… and the 3 American reporters who turned in their scorecards during the fight,
NONE of them had Trout winning… So Boxing Expert… You’re out there on your lonesome… a Floydiot who sees what he wants to see.
Do you account for anything like the impact of punches landed??? If you did maybe your score would be closer to everyone else’s.Posted September 11, 2013 7:23 pm
Trust Me…Is Back
The Reality of the situation is (and Billy Graham actually spoke on this earlier) people want to see how HARD Floyd is Willing to Fight for his Title, Career, Legacy, etc, etc… I think it’s proven that Floyd take a punch…regroup and do what’s necessary to win the fight… So can the 36yr old, brittle hand, Smaller Mayweather move up in weight and Dethrone a Young hungry BEAST… Make no mistake Boxing fans… even if you do Predict a Mayweather Victory (as I do), Canelo is a REAL Fighter! Alvarez has shown improvement with every bout, and IMO is the best Junior Middle Weight in the world!
Styles make fights we know that… so another unknown is What Mayweather Shows up? Mayweather fights in a different “Style” every fight… He seems to do what is NECESSARY to give himself the BEST Advantage in the ring (which he should)
I don’t really want to indulge much in the strategy… I will just say those Expecting Canelo Chavez Duran on the 14th may be in for another result, as that isn’t really Canelo’s style. He is a patient counter puncher and has explosive bursts/spurts with Hard Precise Combo’s… but IF he plays the waiting game…similar to a read and react defense in football, then he is gambling with Fool’s Good… Not only does Mayweather possess some of the quickest reflexes, and hand/foot speed, he has INCREDIBLE TIMING… and that is the KEY!
I think part of Canelo’s supposed stamina issues comes from the fact that he never seems to change the “trajectory” on his shots… all of them are coming fast and hard… that can be a disadvantage against a quick minded and fleet footed defensive counter puncher looking to catch you in-between the big shots or make you swing at air…therefore depleting your gas tank… This is where Mayweather has advantage, not only with Physical Stamina…but with MENTAL stamina. The late Great Emmanuel Steward (R.I.P.) always credited mayweather for having good eyes and been able to think late in the fight even while fatigued… How will Canelo react in the 8th rd when his patented, Left Jab, Right Uppercut, and Left Hook to the body combo isn’t landing, or after taking a variety of right hands, or when Canelo will CONSTANTLY HAVE TO RE POSITION HIMSELF every time Mayweather feints then hits and slips??
A lot of questions will be answered this Saturday…
Give me Floyd by late Stoppage (10th rd TKO…Corner stoppage)… but IF Floyd breaks one of those Precious hands…All BETS are Off!Posted September 11, 2013 7:21 pm
TARK- has it all right. Canelo can win this fight. He has the tools. Canelo needs to fight his way and not get into FMJ game. Whoever sets the pace and controls the tempo wins easy. If Floyd gets down on points is over for him, because he will be fighting Canelo fight. If Canelo looks only for Mayweather head is over for Canelo. Mayweayher will pick him apart.Posted September 11, 2013 7:20 pm

Tark you are right about one thing Trout can beat everyone Floyd has beaten the part you left out was Trout beat Canelo in their fight. I don’t care what the judges said Trout won that fight 8 out of 12 rounds. They had that fight in Texas for a reason . Canelo is as good as he is ever going to get he has haad over 40 fights as a pro he is undefeated he is 23 years old there are no excuses . Floyd is going to do a number on him. I have hear all the ways Canelo can win what he does well but I have not heard or read one thing he does not do well. Let me tell you there are many things he does not do well. It is to close to the fight for me to say now . I have Floyd winning and I don’t want Canelo’s people trying to tighten things up for him before the fight. Canelo is in big trouble my friends big trouble and if any of you really knew anything about boxing you would know what I am talking about.Floyd wins by knockout in the 7 or 8th round.Posted September 11, 2013 6:46 pm

For people who say Canelo is “Slow and Inexperienced” you really have to watch the Trout fight with your blinders off.. Trout is fast.. He’s faster than Cotto.. Trout is slick.. He’s slicker than Cotto..

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)
“Austin Trout beats every guy on Floyd’s resume, period.” Great point! And Canelo also beats every guy on Floyd’s resume.
(Of course Floyd’s resume includes ODLH, Mosely and Cotto who were all past their primes. So we’re talking about Trout and Canelo fighting these guys at that same point in their careers.)Posted September 11, 2013 6:31 pm

“This authour has it all wrong, yes styles do make fights except when it comes to Floyd. Make no mistake about it it’s not a particular style that’ s going to beat Floyd.

Canelo is a very skillful fighter and he has the physical tools to beat Floyd but more importantly he’s got the mental determination to carry it out. He won’t get taken out of his game, this kid is for real.” If you truly believe this, then I’d say you ought to bet any spare cash on Canelo.Posted September 11, 2013 6:26 pm

While Mayweather is favored to win the fight, I’m not so quick to disregard Alvarez’s chancesl. A fighter doesn’t grow old because he gets in the ring, their opponent must make them feel their age. Mayweather is 36 with brittle hand and 17 years in the ring. He doesn’t have the same hunger or determination as a 22 or 23 year old. He just wants to keep his “O” and make money. Some even point out Alvarez is slow, inexperienced, and never faced an opponent like Mayweather, but Mayweather hasn’t faced an opponent like Alvarez in a very long time either. So let’s see what happens.Posted September 11, 2013 6:23 pm
Last 2 posts are a pretty good sumation… Good posts — if you think Canelo will win.. Canelo has a massive will to win.. Floyd has an even stronger will to win.. Floyd flat out does not want to lose for anything — that’s why a KO for Canelo is a possibility.
Because if Floyd feel he is down on the scorecards he will go for broke.Posted September 11, 2013 6:22 pm
david d. – You’re forgetting that Canelo’s resume is very weak…sure he’s looked good, but against who? that’s the thing…Floyd has faced the MUCH better opposition. ANY 154lb fighter can look good beating a 140lb fighter (Lopez) or a Welterweight (M. Hatton) or a lightweight (Jose Cotto)….his best win was Trout, and he looked LESS than “stellar”, he was expected to shine and he didn’t live up to expectations.Posted September 11, 2013 6:16 pm

Cotto and ODLH were both ring worn, hand speed less than before, their legs were shot, when they faced FMJ…however, they both gave FMJ a competitive fight, hitting him often enough. Canelo has youth (23), skill; quick and hard hitting hands, quick reflexes, and experience in the ring, only 50 rounds less in his career than Floyd (37). And, has a ko % of 69.77. That’s 10% more than Floyd.
Canelo fights on the outside of FMJ’s reach, making Floyd over extend and getting countered with quick hard hitting blows…that’s my prediction! Now, if FMJ survives that, he deserves to win.Posted September 11, 2013 5:50 pm
Anonymous – It’s easy to think you can beat Floyd when you’ve faced the Lopez’s and the Mathew Hatton’s of the world.Posted September 11, 2013 5:46 pm
I think the STAMINA is what’s going to be the factor here. Canelo has speed and power. If he can throw an ass load of jabs and just be very physical, make Floyd work hard every round, rabbit punch, make it a brawl. Show no respect and fight at a killer pace, maybe he can win. Not gonna happen.Posted September 11, 2013 5:38 pm
I wonder what everyone is going to say when Canelo displays a recipe of skills, power and speed to defeat Floyd. Once he sees that can’t win he will resort to every dirty trick in the book but Canelo will set him straight. It’s easy to think your great when you fight the Victor Ortiz’s and Robert Guerrero’s of the world. Floyd may be great but he’s even better at creating smoke and mirrors.Posted September 11, 2013 5:25 pm

Caldwell says.., “What Canelo is missing is the additional power, elevated speed, and superior stamina required to effectively utilize his fighting style against Floyd.”
Not true at all…
He certainly has the speed and reflexes… He certainly has the power… Superior stamina is what Danny Garcia needs because he fighting a guy who will put tons of pressure on him for 12 rounds.
Canelo may not need superior stamina because Floyd is not going to be super busy and an active aggressor like Matthysse. He’s going to let Canelo lead a lot and try to counterpunch—that is unless he gets behind, or figures the fight is too close for comfort. In that case Floyd will step it up like he did in the third round vs Mosley and 4th vs Judah.
If Floyd falls behind and comes at him—Canelo must be ready to fight hard. But that should play into Canelo’s hands—he’s stronger than Floyd.
If I was putting together his game plane I would have Canelo box carefully the first 3 rounds and build an early lead … That way Floyd will have to adjust and attack—making the fight easier for Canelo as each round passes.
That was the Austin Trout blueprint that worked so beautifully.Posted September 11, 2013 4:14 pm
There’s some good points in the article. The bottom line is Canelo has to answer all the questions. Mayweather has answered those questions by fighting some great fighters albeit older and smaller when he did fight them, but he gained valuable experience. The catch weight issue was a BIG mistake on Canelo’s part. He’s lowered his chances of winning this fight by that one bad move. He hasn’t seen 152 in years. He’s going to be dehydrated, weak and then put on 15-20 plus pounds by the next day. Bad. Bad move. And he wonders why his stamina is bad. This will be a tough one for Canelo to win, but as we all know, boxing is always full of surprises.Posted September 11, 2013 4:11 pm
I like the way Canelo said that Floyd was the dumb one for coming up 5 pounds when they where referring to Ellerbe saying his management was inept. But what Canelo failed to realize is Floyd is challenging himself and attempting to be great by moving up in weight and you calling Floyd out would necessarily be considered a bully since you are calling the smaller guy out instead of calling out his fellow 154 pounders.Posted September 11, 2013 4:05 pm
Cotto and De La Hoya were “natural” 154-pounders.
They naturally grew into the 154-pound weight. Cotto weighed 165 vs Floyd and Oscar was over 170… Canelo may actually weigh into the ring lighter than they did because he is being forced to cut weight more drastically than they did.
Leonard Ellerbe was chortling about what idiots Canelo’s management folks are because they agreed to 152 — while both Cotto and De La Hoya enjoyed a higher weigh-in — although they’re physically smaller.
John Scully aaid, “This is going to be one miserable week for Canelo, killing himself to make 152. That’s got to kill his chances.”
This remains to be seen. My guess is Canelo fights beyond exhuastion on sheer desire and excitment. He knows this is the moment of his life, and he’ll push his body through new limits and gives Floyd the fight of his life.Posted September 11, 2013 3:46 pm

A prime Donald Curry and a prime Terry Norris are 2 examples of guys who had the speed and slickness to give Mayweather fits had they been able to fight each other – Alvarez does not possess the skills or speed that those 2 or a prime Ray Leonard and Tommy Hearns had.Posted September 11, 2013 3:25 pm
I think that most would agree that Alvarez is not nearly as talented and definitely not as accomplished as Julio Ceasar Chavez was before his fight with Pernell Whitaker and look what happened – Many feel that Whitaker won that fight.Posted September 11, 2013 3:14 pm
Alvarez does NOT have the experience against really good competition to beat Mayweather at this point in time – When Ray Leonard fought Tommy Hearns he had already fought Wilfred Benitez, Duran twice & undefeated junior middle champion Ayub Kalule. Leonard was very seasoned before his fights with Hearns and later Hagler.Posted September 11, 2013 3:10 pm

It’s not simply a case of does canelo have the style,but more importantly,does he have the discipline and ring IQ to execute that style to perfection,and if not,is he able to adjust continually throughout the fight? Or maybe,more importantly,can he out-adjust mayweather’s adjustments? The only thing that makes this fight remotely intriguing is the huge youth,power,,strength and weight advantages that Canelo will have….unless Floyd has aged overnight,i expect to see a boxing clinic from him,against a fighter in Canelo that some people seem to underestimate.The first 7 rounds will be closer than some people think,but then I expect Floyd to shift gears and show the world why he’s p4p1,with a possible late stoppage of Canelo(not via KO,but via towel)….but anything is possible,this is boxing and you can’t write Canelo off,he’s not a bum,he’s a very good lmw,who should be fighting at 160.If Floyd wins this,i really don’t want to see any lame excuses.Posted September 11, 2013 3:05 pm

I dont bet against floyd normally and this fight I wont either however , canelo does not gas out in the 4th round like people are saying at least not in the trout fight or the mosley fight he didnt. If you want to see gasing out, refer to ali vs formen or morrison vs mercer, klitschko vs brewster, thats gssing out. Canelo was still very active and offencive late in the two fights I mentioned so where all this gas out in the 4th round is comming from must be a hoax or one of those urban ledgens that get started and people just repeat what they hear not knowing the facts or they seen a canelo fighgt back when he was 6 yesrs old. Second, canelo has a really good jab now, canelo has under rated speed and combonation abilitys. Canelo has power and looked great at times slipping punches in the trout fight. Isnt that some of the sbilitys thats needed to defeat the great mayweather? Once again im not bet n against floyd he s a crafty master but canelo is being under estimated on a large scale and why people dont see that is shocking to me. Canelo from 8 to 12 is where he has to shine and enforce his will and power and determanation on floyd to pull of the win and I belive he can but only if he stays focused late and floyd dosent break his will, mayweathers good at breaking a mans will after the 6th round.Posted September 11, 2013 2:45 pm
IF HE CANT BEAT MAYWEATHER AT 36 THAN YOU TELL ME ANOTHER HYPE JOB.Posted September 11, 2013 2:44 pm
The style Floyd fears the most is called “Pacman Style.” Otherwise, he would have fought him years ago, but is still on the run. He will never be considered an ATG so long as he has this huge blemish on his record!!Posted September 11, 2013 2:40 pm
ERECTAMUNDO – That’s NOTHING new. We all know that.Posted September 11, 2013 2:39 pm
He doesn’t have the style but he has youth, huge size advantage and is talented beyond his years. If he was fighting Mayweather in his late 20s, early 30s I would say Canelo has no chance. With Floyd being closer to 37, father time is the style Floyd needs to beat.Posted September 11, 2013 2:29 pm
Excessive holding and tons of CLINCHES from Mayweather. Hes gonna be holding CANELO’S LEFT ARM.Posted September 11, 2013 2:28 pm
