Tark ,you cant talk boxing….You can just read it. Well,that is a little harsh….you are a good guy they say. Weather you read it or teach it or both,you do get better in time and it does help others.So I guess thats good ,if what you are teaching is the truth.See,there is a little good in everybody…..God bless….kenny weldon

Could be. But cotto’s record does not show he has ducked anyone. Or could you point a time? Money stated that cotto ducked him in the past, but the $$ offered by money and company was rediculous.
Now if you tell me that cotto decided to get another strap in order to negotiate a better deal (as a unification fight) then I would agree. Fighting for two belts will always generate more $$. So these guys know that game is about. I do believe that unless trout pulls a lopez on cotto. the next fight for cotto will be canelo. Unless a bigger $$ fight comes up. After all the name of the game is $$. Like larry holmes once said, “for right amount of $$ I would fight king kong and godzilla in a phone booth with my right hand tied behind my back.”

I agree with some comments made! I looked over Lopez’s borec.com info and he started out as a featherweight. he had fought at jr welter right before the Ortiz fight, then at welter for ortiz. then a jump up in competition and in weight (at the same time) to face canelo. Talk about cherry picking. And why did Lopez’s handlers threw him to lion den. This is what upsets me about boxing. I love boxing, but this could mess up this young guys career. He did not even get a chance to settle into the welterweight division before making the move up to 154. If I was canelo I wouldn’t fee proud of winning this fight. He knew he should have won as easy as he did. I think he has talent, but enough is enough; he needs to step it up in competition. I think that canelo and company will aim at Cotto because cotto is really a welter and canelo feels that they can wear cotto down. A fight he may regret taking if the cotto that fought the last two fights show up. As someone stated before. Cotto’s brother almost Koed canelo. and everyone that canelo has fought is either old or a never was contender. I think it will be a great fight, and who know; canelo may be able to show how good he really is. If he beats cotto or at least holds his own, we all must give him is props.

One of the lamest posts I’ve seen in a while, almost on the level of Tark drivel.
Boxing is about money. If the match up puts butts in the buckets, then it probably will happen. Canelo can easily compete with the biggest names out there, and more than likely whip them.

Never happen in the old days when Mexican Fighters fought the best.. they’re all now Prima Donnas looking for one big Paycheck… neither Mayweather, Paquiao, Cotto will pay this idiot any attention.

I posted on here months ago that I was traveling out to Vegas to see the fight. It was a great card, I almost enjoyed the undercard lineup as much as Lopez/Canelo. I got to see my Madison WI boy Eric Morel gut out a loss against a much favored 13 year younger Mexican fighter. What I learned from the card is that yes.. Golden Boy is protecting Canelo too much. He out-boxed a very game 140lb fighter. The haters will always point that out, and they are right to do so. The facts are though that this ShoBox event was offered to Paul Williams, Cotto, and Ortiz. None of those options panned out, so Lopez got the shot. Kudos to him for taking it. Regardless of the beat down he got, I will be a serious Lopez fan if he goes back down to 140lbs because he showed some serious f-ng “steelies” in the ring. I know because I was 500′ away from the ring. Canelo has a weird path ahead of him. Guys like Cotto that have lost recent matches won’t risk facing him. So, it will be interesting to see what pans out there. Maybe Sergio is a good foil there. Hard to say. Mayweather isn’t an option because the $$ won’t work out, and by the time Canelo is really ready for that Mayweather will be at Sugar Shane’s level of adeptness. No one will care about Canelo knocking him out if that’s the case.

I don’t know why Cotto wouldn’t fight Canelo. It would be a very tough fight for him, but he fought Pacquiao and Mayweather so he definitely would step up and do it. The money would be huge for one thing; the PPV could do 1.5 million.

Floyd Mayweather doesn’t have the style or the over all physical attributes to destroy Cotto at 154..Canelo even thow not as skilled as Mayweather is very good as young as he still is and has the style to go along with the physical attributes to possibly demolish and undersize Cottos at 154 who’s at the end of his career..

Canelo would deMolish Cotto and Cotto knows it. i can pretty much guarantee that an undersized and protected Cotto will never agree to face Alvarez. meanwhile, i don’t want to watch Floyd above 147lbs ever again BUT if he does move up one final time to collect Canelo’s scalp, the still prime Floyd will neutralize and outpoint Alvarez for a competitive but convincing UD. against a less than prime Floyd? Canelo’s chances become fair to good. otherwise, it’s gonna take a Molina or Martinez type to defeat Canelo: crafty, ring-smart, and unconventional.

Posted September 21, 2012 7:40 pm

I think all 3 still beat him at this point.
Cotto’s brother almost knocked him out, fair enough he come through it but he can be hurt. He throws good combo’s but is a bit of a plodder at times.
Pacman wins by KO,
Cotto’s beats him up and wins by MD
Mayweather dances around him all night, he seems perfect fodder for Mayweather.

Martinez will absolutely demoralize Canelo at this point. Cotto would be an excellent fight and likely provide us with a barometer to Saul’s true potential. At this point I maypick Alvarez over Cotto in a barnburner.

I dont always agree w Titopia but he is dead on w this one. If you are “champ” fight the best. This is the result of far too many “champions” per division and too many divisions. Now adding “super” champs, “silver” champs etc…is stupid and the result is a kid like Canelo who should be a solid prospect (when there were 8 divisions, 10 contenders and ONE champion) is put in this position and is fueled by unregulated greed.

By that comment…you’re completely admitting that Canelo is merely a cash cow. He has no desire to be great, only to be a great money earner.

I won’t buy it.

Posted September 21, 2012 6:08 pm 


Titopa

It wouldn’t let me reply to your last post, so I’m replying to this one. Mosley was just “okay”, he wasn’t really a threat, but somewhat of correct route I guess as far as building a fan base. Cintron wasn’t what I’d call an easy fight either, but a definite winnable bout for Canelo, no “true threat” against a mentally weak (gun shy) fighter. Gomez? Castillo was a shell of his former self, Gatti was DONE and he was demolished by Cotto, he was truly a weak opponent. Those are correct “routes to take” when you’re working your way to a title, but when you’re in possession? I don’t think so. All GBP is doing is using that title to sell him as “campeón del mundo” (world champ), using the title as bargaining power to minimize the threat and increase the cash flow. and NO, I don’t think present title fights are held by equally talented fighters, which is the problem with boxing, we should have that, but we don’t and we’re allowing it to happen by supporting coddled fighters like Canelo and Chavez.

Posted September 21, 2012 6:07 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

He fought mosley which was ok for both superearners in the boxing-world….Cintron is not what i would call an easy fight for anyone..Lopez beat Ortiz should he have fought Ortiz ? Gomez i can’t defend but being in the ring with Castillo,Cotto and Gatti and being 2 out of 3 is not bad……What you see as slouches i see as the correct way to take…..or are you under the impression that all belt-fights now and present have consisted of equal fighters ? Because then you are delusional…..

See. I’d agree if he didn’t possess a title…but he does, you’re obligated as a titlist to defend it against best, if you can’t do that, then relinquish your title, allow those guys who’ve worked for the opportunity to fight for it. He’s basically using it as a bargaining tool to pick and choose his opponents, that’s what’s wrong with boxing. They’re not putting the best against the best because coddled fighters like Canelo are in possession of titles that other fighters have been working towards, and he won’t fight the #1 contender(s) because “he’s not ready”….then WTF do you have a title for?

Age and experience has everything to do with it, there’s a reason that people fight alot of different styles and has to adapt both in and out of the ring…. most grow into a contender at age 25-30 cutting corners in a learning-process has been the down-fall of 1000′s of very talented boxers, it’s not supposed to be something that happens overnight …..some would argue that Tysons life and career ended up as it did because he was thrown to the lions too soon….but you go ahead and put pressure on a 22 yr old…..you prob would’nt put on your favourite fighters in their 30′s

Cotto will expose that fraud just like maravilla disgraced fraud chumpvez in front of his own people on such a special holiday!!!!! He couldn’t do what cotto is used to doing on their special holiday — whooping that mexican arse like he did to margacheato. Yeah baby…. ha ha ha ha ha…!!!

Cintron got tired of eating punches to the face. But this time there Kermit knew the tables aren’t soft enough to jump/fall on. The ref also knew the difference between a KO and a foul. I agree Canelo isn’t ready for Mayweather & that is exactly why it has a good chance of happening. Of course you could count on one hand the guys that might be ready for Jr under MW.

Nobody wants to see Canelo fight Lara, that’s wasting time.. Everybody wants to see Canelo fight Cotto and Martinez.. If SA can beat those guys, and Floyd can whip Bradley and Pacquiao, then we can have Canelo vs Floyd for Money’s retirement extravaganza. It could be bigger than the Pacquiao fight because it would feature 2 undefeated champions … I’d like to see Floyd deal with that youth, strength, power, and hand speed, bacause nobody throws faster, harder combinations than The Cinnamon Kid.

Posted September 21, 2012 3:48 pm 


Titopa

I’m not saying Canelo will be overwhelmed….but do you think he’ll attack Cotto the way he’s been able to attack guys like Gomez, Cintron or Lopez? That’s why he’s looked so good, he didn’t really have to worry about anything heavy being thrown at him. Mosley’s probably (close to Cintron) the biggest puncher he’s faced, and we all saw how gun shy Mosley’s been in the last couple years, GBP was banking on that, and it went according to plan, the younger/fresher fighter threw, threw and threw, while the old lion waited, waited and waited.

Posted September 21, 2012 3:44 pm

I think Cotto beats Canelo on experience alone….Canelo will be (for the first time ever) facing a guy who’s fought ALL styles, from boxers, to punchers, to speedsters to brawlers and to tacticians. So far, Canelo hasn’t faced such fighters. He’s beem given/handed/matched with guys who aren’t necessarily “dangerous”.

Posted September 21, 2012 3:42 pm

Isn’t Floyd faster than Canelo? I would say, YES…and we all saw how Cotto was able to handle Floyd’s superior speed and precision. You’re going to say that Canelo’s “speed” will be too much for Cotto? Hmmm.

Posted September 21, 2012 3:05 pm

Although I like Alvarez and think that he’s an elite fighter…. I really don’t respect his choice of opponents lately. He’s a 154 pound champion and he defends his belt against a welterweight that never fought at 154 before wtf… To me that wasn’t a championship fight. And fighting old ass Mosley who’s been getting his ass whooped for the past couple of years??? I’ve been saying for a long time that he should be fighting Cotto. At least fight someone that has been doing something at is current weight and not 50 years old.. Geeeeeze

Posted September 21, 2012 3:04 pm

Arrived? His arrival is heralded by beating up on a bloated 140 pounder who landed great combos on him? Please. I like Alvarez, but this dude is not fighting the level of competition he needs to so that he warrants his reputation. He gets hit far too much. Lucky for him, they haven’t put him in there with a guy who could crack, a guy with a motor, or a guy who is skilled enough to adjust. When he is able to put on a great performance against a legit exciting or skilled154 pounder like Cotto, Kirkland, Bundrage, Trout, Lara, Molina, Angulo, etc… Until then I don’t think he is the goods.

I think Canelo would have problems against combination punchers, however i think he would give Mayweather the fight of his life since Mayweather seems to throw one punch at a time. Canelo is quick and throws his punches and combinations very well. Mayweather knocks nobody out at 154 so if Canelo was going to lose it would probably be due to Mayweather coming on strong in the later rounds. Canelo is very polished offensively but definitely needs to work on head movement and keeping his hands up , if he fixes those things I really believe he can go very far. He definitely needs to step up and fight the Best at 154 and nothing less.

WTF we all know its your lame ass. I like Cotto a lot as a fighter but the truth is he will get tagged considerably against the faster Canelo. Canelo needs to fight him to show he is in the same level or a level above. I still think Canelo does need to work on his defense but offensively I think he would handle Cotto.

He fought Mathew Hatton, a welterweight who wasn’t even ranked in the top 5 of that division, let alone in line for a title at 154lbs. GBP HANDED him a title that he (along with Chavez) wasn’t ready for, he’s “defended” it against more fighters who were NOT in line for it.

Mayweather would make Canelo look as amateurish as Martinez made Chavez Cheato Jr.. It would be the same.. a laughable one sided mismatch…Canelo is too easy to hit.. even a damage Cintron hit him easily but got tired..

Canelo has “arrived” in the same spot he was a year ago, fighting undersized & overmatched opponents. You are supposed to look impressive in those fights. Just ask Broner(though “The Problem” should actually have 2 losses already). The difference is that Canelo has some serious competition in his division. Yes, GBP was looking to up the stakes in this fight. Canelo can’t control Ortiz getting his jaw smashed, Williams getting in an accident, or Kirkland getting greedy. Canelo can face his mandatory. Cotto should be at least a fight away. Granted, I think if Canelo would have beat a Williams or Kirkland, Cotto would have been the next step. We will see what the next step is. Fact is Canelo shouldn’t have had that title in the first place. Canelo is just now ready to step up to championship level opponents & he already “offically” has 7 title defenses.

Mayflower, Cotto and even Pacman don’t have what it takes to overcome the youth, power and speed of Canelo. We don’t have to waste any time analyzing Mayflower vs Canelo since Floydie doesn’t have the juevos to get in the ring with him anyway. It’s probably about time for the Mayflower camp to start their usual bs program against Canelo accusing him of PEDS and anything else to try to get out of losing dat zero.

Agreed 100%. But, Floyd isn’t “too small”, but isn’t necessarily as big as Canelo, but as far as skills go…Floyd is LEAGUES above Canelo. As much as Canelo “wants” Floyd, GBP will NOT let that happen. Too much, WAY too soon. He’s been matched with guys he’s “sure” to beat and has NOT been matched against guys he “might” beat.

Offensively he definitely has what it takes to compete with anyone at 154, defensively however, he has a habit of leaving his hands down and his big head there to be hit. He better practice having his hands up and head movement or he will be a has been soon.

Its baffling for me for anyone to consider Canelo as the champion, the man has fought not one credible opponent, not one. Fighting Josesito was the lowest this guy could go. How people bought that fight is still shocking me.

Cinnamon should fight Cotto next… He will probably lose the first few rounds to Miguel — but his blistering hand speed and combinations will break through around round 7, and the Cinnamon Kid will be in charge the rest of the way.. He might even stop Cotto late with those body shots. If he stops Cotto, that will put him in sharp contrast to Floyd, because Floyd had all he could handle with MC.. If he can’t get Floyd because Floyd will probably fight Bradley and Pacquiao nex — and then quit fighting to go full time with promotion — Saul should definitely fight Cotto and then Martinez at 154.. The left hooks to the body might eventually get to the aging Sergio.. If Cinnamon is successful at this he’ll be the next P4P King.

Canelo is on the verge of super stardom in my opinion. A fight against Cotto or Martinez with wins against either of the pair would set him up as the obvious fans choice (bar Pacman) for a shot against Mayweather. In Martinez and Alvarez I think we now have two fighters who pose as a real and competative threat to Mayweather.
