Yes, yes he did. Floyd haterz have already found there new flavour of the month…Posted October 7, 2013 9:21 pm
A month ago Alvarez was the next big thing? Now a bum, go figure.Posted October 7, 2013 8:50 pm
Tark – He may do a rematch with 140lb Josesito Lopez!!! Oh Yeah!!!Posted October 7, 2013 9:27 am
Tark – I believe they’re trying to get Ivan Calderon to come out of retirement.. so Cinnabum can show how great he truly is!! LOLPosted October 7, 2013 9:21 am
How about telling us who the Cinnamon Kid is targetng next???
Sergio Martinez??? Let’s hear about it Golden Boy.Posted October 6, 2013 11:05 pm

Canelo’s weight and hydration were a non-factor in the fight, he was simply outclassed…Posted October 5, 2013 10:09 pm
Floyd Sr and Roger wanted Canelo to come to 147.
They said the fight wouldn’t happen unless Canelo came to 147. Obviously they knew the fight wasn’t going to happen at that weight.. But then they said 150.. You’re going to have to make 150.. Canelo’s team finally offered 152.. It was a dumb move and Mayweather’s team jumped all over it.. Canelo’s team could have said, “NO we fight at 154… 154… 154… 154… 154… 154… and 154 only.” Floyd’s team would eventually have said, “OK, 154 it is.”
If you’re 22, going on 23, and you’re body is still growning — and you appeared to grow out of the 154lb division in your last fight — you entered the ring at 172 and weren’t massively energetic — you don’t agree to go to 152 to fight the world’s best fighter.
Besides.., It seems to me they started Canelo dehydrating too aggressively, and too early, to get on top of the weight issue… Canelo not only looked horribly parched — he wasn’t able to rehydrate anywhere close to what he achieved for Trout — which was 172.Posted October 5, 2013 8:32 pm
Canelo’s statement makes me wonder if what I said prior to his fight with Mayweather is true. What I insinuated was that Golden Boy talked Canelo into taking the fight at a catchweight, because obviously, GBP stood to make a lot of money from this fight–win or lose. I just find it hard to believe that Canelo’s trainer said he would not put Canelo at that kind of risk, and that Canelo himself said he wanted the fight at 154, but then they conceded to fight at a catchweight. Just doesn’t seem right.Posted October 5, 2013 7:26 pm
” CANELO ”’NEVER BACK DOWN ,CAME TO FIGHT / ALSO BUILDING 84 HOUSES FOR THE POOR IN ‘FLOOED IN MEXICO AND HE DOES’NT HAVE TO THAT $$$ ‘A REAL ”CHAMP .Posted October 5, 2013 5:31 pm
Canelo have no business at the 154 div due to stamina problems, with the help of a nutritionist he should consider moving back to the 147 div and fight bigger name$$$$ like Bradley, Marquez, Thurman, Pacquiao, Rios, Alexander, Peterson, Khan, Ortiz, Guerrero, Garcia, Broner, Madiana and Mathhyes and then if Floyd is still around a rematch but after Canelo beats all of the above fighters mentioned….but his COCAINE ADDICTED promoter for some reason doesn’t see it that way and wants/Forcing Canelo to stamina problems at the 154 div.Posted October 5, 2013 4:01 pm
KEEP THE HYPE JOBS COMING.Posted October 5, 2013 2:39 pm
Fritz has no clue what he is talking about and trying to spread bogus rumors about rigged test. He read an article that was all hear say and now trying to spread it as truth. I read the same stuff. It’s all hear say dude and he says it in the article because if he said it was fact he would of been taken to court. Stop trying to use opinions or hear say as facts to try to support some of those lame theories of yours.Posted October 5, 2013 2:25 pm
Idiot Sredmond says.., “They say GGG cuts the ring off.. So did Margarito.”
No Cheato didn’t.. Pacquiao, Mosley, and Cotto couldn’t miss Cheater with a punch.. They boxed rings around him and beat the living crap out of out the scumbag.. What do Golovkin, Kovalev, and the Klitschkos have in common that you hate them so much??? … HmmmPosted October 5, 2013 2:06 pm
Hatton was good at 140 but got gifts at 147 like vacant titles and a decision but then Cortez made him pay when he fought the Golden Boys goose-Money May. Just as they rigged multiple blood tests via their buddy Travis Tygart of USADA, they also rigged the rematch clause, the judges, and who knows what else against Matthysse. I gave Garcia rounds 4,7,8,9, & 11 and the knock down occurred because Matthysse was thrown by the back of the head into the ropes were he got tangled and smashed. That round should have went to Mathysse. Garcia was also allowed multiple low blows.
Likewise Golden Boy/Al Haymon are setting Garcia and Khan up for Floyd as we speak but when Floyd moves up and fights a real live contender like GGG, Lara, Molina, etc.. then we can say he is an ATG at it but so far he just facing over the hills and hype jobs while the best at 154 linger. GGG aint getting fights at 154 or 160, etc.. because everyone is “admittedly” afraid of himPosted October 5, 2013 1:36 pm
Peej, Sredmond, etc… went on and on about Canelo being the best 154 guy and was the lineal champ bla bla bla but his titles were via vacant gifts. The WBC title was vacant and won from Hatton. Trout’s WBA was a vacant won from Canelo’s brother. Lets see Trout and Canelo fight somebody good in their prime. Other words its just more planned in advance hype machine.Posted October 5, 2013 1:20 pm
Peej, no matter what “Canelo said” our eyes told us the truth. Alvarez has enough problems making 154. 152 was a serious strain.Posted October 5, 2013 12:50 pm
“Miguel Cotto is a GREAT fighter who has fought the BEST out there and has been discarded absent any real intelligent analysis…”
BTW SRedmond, that’s the most intelligent comment anyone has made on this thread.
*God knows I hated to say that.*Posted October 5, 2013 12:48 pm
The 152 point Catchweight shouldn’t matter. Canelo said he made the weight comfortably. And he was 153 his last fight. That shouldn’t be used as an excuse. I don’t like Catchweight fights but it didn’t matter what weight Canelo came in. He was getting beatPosted October 5, 2013 12:48 pm
To bad Fritz doesn’t know how to read or maybe he chooses not too. I believe I said Canelo was gonna be stopped late by Floyd. He was the Jr Middle champ so I don’t see why he couldn’t be an opponent for Floyd. Not to mention it did great with PPVs. You think Floyd has to fight middles and super middles when he is a small WelterPosted October 5, 2013 12:46 pm
“Canelo is a DAMN good fighter with plenty of talent he was just a day late and a dollar short like EVERYONE is with Mayweather…”
This is a fact SRedmond, but you cannont deny or sweep under the rug the fact that Floyd did not agree to fight Canelo until Alvarez offered to fight at a catchweight. You are very knowledable about boxing yet you gloss over or totally ignore this issue like it meant nothing.
Of course it was important because the fight would not have been made without the catchweight. Certainly Floyd put on a great performance against Alvarez but it was a catchweight fight. You know. The kind of fights Floyd says he doesn’t do?Posted October 5, 2013 12:42 pm
Miguel Cotto is a GREAT fighter who has fought the BEST out there and has been discarded absent any real intelligent analysis… The version of Margo that beat him was NOT getting stopped by anyone human, Miguel hit him with EVERYTHING and the guy just kept coming… Mayweather and Pacquiao? Well BOTH ATG’s and the best fighters of the generation… Cotto will likely go down as the guy who gave Floyd Mayweather his toughest bout in modern history… Trout was a BIG 154 pounder who knew how to box and got the job done….Cotto is SMALL at 154 look at him next to Rodriguez, but we will see if he can get that left hook into his liver and position himself for another big fight… Cotto would fight Canelo in a heartbeat he has NEVER ducked a challenge… Mayweather, Pacquiao, Mosley, Margarito, Judah, Trout, Clottey… Cotto fought them all I got nothing but love for this guy….GGG should NOT even be mentioned in the same breath as Miguel Cotto with his ridiculous resume and fights in a single divisionPosted October 5, 2013 12:05 pm

Canelo is a DAMN good fighter with plenty of talent he was just a day late and a dollar short like EVERYONE is with Mayweather… The ONLY Mayweather opponent that is detractors will give credit to is a guy who beats him even if Floyd is 65 when it happens…. LOL…. Alvarez was trying to counter, go to the body etc he was just in the ring with a fighter who’s talent he will NEVER encounter again so for Canelo thats the GOOD news…He certainly appears more talented than Golovkin who simply is VERY strong with VERY heavy hands but as a “boxer” I see NOTHING techincally special about him AT ALL… Dopes on here say “he cuts off the ring” yeah so did Margarito…. LOLPosted October 5, 2013 11:59 am
I still think canelo is the real deal and will beat anyone at 154 not name mayweather. Money whipped hiss ass! No shame in that!Posted October 5, 2013 10:31 am
People who promoted Canelo as a competitive opponent for Floyd include Peej, Tark, Vivik Wallace, Happyboy, Supreme Court, Oscar, Richard Shaefer, etc.
You know, people with an agenda just wont listenPosted October 5, 2013 10:26 am
JOEY YOU ARE BANG ON.Posted October 5, 2013 9:53 am
We have to see how he turns out now in his next fight. He shouldn’t be in with a give me fight. It will need to be something semi tough but he should still be favored to win. Plus it needs to be against a real 154 point fighter. The people that said Canelo would win have definitely changed their tune and is now saying Floyd is ducking someone else.Posted October 5, 2013 9:27 am
SO THIS GUY WAS SUPOSED TO BE THE BEST OUT THERE TO BEAT A 36 YEAR OLD MAYWEATHER. WHAT GREAT FIGHTERS WE HAVE TODAY. LOL.Posted October 5, 2013 9:08 am

Agree Alvarez would beat Cotto….disagree with the welterweight comment, Cotto has Been at jr middle same as Canelo a while nowPosted October 5, 2013 5:03 am
Weight wasn’t an issue when Manny belted a badly drained Oscar? Alvarez wasn’t winning that fight at any weight.Posted October 5, 2013 4:45 am
Weight wasnt the issue! Skills were!Posted October 5, 2013 2:57 am
Weekend@Ernies…, Right. I thought the fight was going to be a lot tougher for Floyd — as tough as the judges’ scorecards made it look..
It wasn’t.. But I always had Floyd winning.. I had the winner. I also said the weigh-in would be the key — and Canelo looked parched at the weigh-in, which I said before the fight. He was definitely weight drained and weighed into the ring 7 pounds lighter than for Trout.
I believe Danny Garcia will give Floyd a tougher and closer fight. Something like if the scorecards reflected what really happened.Posted October 5, 2013 2:51 am
How can’t he not be? $12m in the bank. He can retire right now. He ain’t going to far, just like Chavez Jr and Camacho Jr. All promoter and media build up.Posted October 5, 2013 12:58 am
I think canelo is still the at 154. No shame in losing to floyd he is an atg. Canelo time will come.Posted October 5, 2013 12:23 am
murderman, that’s how you bring a fighter back from a defeat…slowly rebuild the confidence before you advance to the better opposition.Posted October 5, 2013 12:21 am
Agree with Cotto that’s the pick 4 me….Cotto def needs a good win 1st… Lara wouldn’t b 2 bad either….Alvarez vs GGG any1. The only way Golovkin gets a Mayweather fight is taking out Alvarez at 154 1st. Than there’s no excuses. Money would give the fans what they want if that unfolded.Posted October 5, 2013 12:18 am
Whoever weekend at eries is he is murdering u cats! Yall cant even comeback w nothing. Lara? Floyd just killed the jm king. Wtf makes you cats think lara got a shot? Canelo will kill lara!Posted October 5, 2013 12:13 am
I would like to see him take on the Erislandy Lara.Posted October 5, 2013 12:04 am
Alvarez lost to a more gifted and experienced boxer….however, he took more of a risk in that one bout, and lasted the distance with the current p4p boxer, than FMJ has in his whole freaking career!Posted October 5, 2013 12:02 am
Ray Ray – Cotto – if he Cotto wins his upcoming fight.Posted October 4, 2013 11:52 pm

Just keep on wearing those shades Floyd, during ever stare down, to hide the FEAR in your eyes.
Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)
“Once Maweather feels Canelo’s power he’s gonna make the fight ugly
Exactly! A soon as FMJ feels Canelo’s power is when the track meet will begin. He’ll be running all over the ring and when Canelo gets in close he’ll tie him up, hold, clinch and fight dirty — B-Hop style.
Even if Canelo clearly wins the fight, he’ll get robbed on the cards anyway. So CA has KO/TKO FMJ in order to win in Vegas. Too bad this fight isn’t being held in Mexico City.
It’s Me, Ernie
Brother Weekend@Ernies layin it out for the fools…Posted October 4, 2013 11:23 pm
Floyd will get tired of running and will either get KTFO or quit, Canelo will be on him like white on rice. Don’t see this going pass the 7th round.
Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)
Canelo a real serious threat to Floyd. FMJ can’t stop him, so there’s no way that he can win by KO/TKO.
But Canelo can stop FMJ if he catches him with a couple of good, clean shots. And that’s exactly what Canelo will have to do to get the win because there’s no way they’ll give Canelo the decision in FMJ’s home country and home town.
My prediction is that Canelo will win the fight, but will get ROBBED on the cards. Rea talk.
It’s Me, Ernie
Nice work Weekend…Posted October 4, 2013 11:05 pm
This fight is different.., This is the first young, strong, tough, durable, smart, fast, hard punching, skilled, good all-around boxer Floyd has ever faced … He doesn’t really have any weaknesses.
Zab wasn’t tough… Oscar wasn’t young… Mosley wasn’t young… Cotto didn’t have height, range, and strength… Marquez didn’t have size… Corrales couldn’t box worth a damn.
There’s a first for everything … and Canelo is The One.
Canelo.., “I think the way Mayweather is talking he is underestimating me but deep down I think he is very worried.”
Floyd IS very worried.. Canelo doesn’t have any major holes in his game like all the other ATG fighters Floyd has faced.
Oscar was easy to hit… Judah had a weak chin and lacked strength… Cotto was short and lacked range… Marquez was very small… Mosley was an old man on his last legs… Corrales was not a good boxer or defender, and looked skinny and weak as a weed.
Canelo is the 7th ATG fighter Floyd has faced — but he doesn’t have any of the technical and style problems all these other boys had.
Canelo can slice through Floyd’s defense like Cotto did with his jab, Mosley did with his right handers, and Judah did with about everything he threw early on.. Floyd solved all those problems by making masterful adjustments.. He’s fighting a guy who will adjust to his adjustments.
This is going to be one Hell of a tough fight for Floyd.
What a waste of time that was….If u wanted 2 use Alvarez’s name surely u could find something better than this 2 write aboutPosted October 4, 2013 9:23 pm

Oscar.., “I’ll be shocked if Canelo doesn’t stop Floyd in 8 rounds.”
Oscar.., “152 will help Canelo.. He’ll come in at 165 and be lightning fast.”
Oscar.., “I present the world’s biggest Boxing star, Canelo Alvarez.”
