I like both fighters but I’m giving Canelo the nod for one reason, he’s only 23 and he’s hungry. Angulo is 31 and in boxing terms, ” he’s an old 31″ Both are great warriors and if both were the same age then Canelo would not stand a chance against Angulo… Should be a GREAT fight,.. a great match-up..PEACE… Theboxingdictionary.com… The Language of the Ring “

This is a great fight and even if Canelo loses, it s great experience for him, I like both fighters but due to his age ( 23 ) and his hunger to be a great fighter I’ll go wtith Canelo. Angulo gave Lara a great fight , one of the best fights I’ve seen in a long time. Angulo too is a warrior but at his age of 31 his career is on the downside and Canelo is still rising… Again I like BOTH fighter, both are warriors .. Should be a great fight !! PEACE ..

Canelo thinks he can outbox Angulo, but he ain’t half as slick as Lara, and he only hits a hard as Mayweather. But we are going to go for the knock out cause if the fight goes to the score cards, GBP will not let their future cash cow lose again.

Lara wilts in the championship heat. even in non-title bouts, you can see that he doesn’t like it getting too personal. he was bedeviled by WBO champ Molina; fought to a virtual standstill by Vanes; and decked twice by the Angulo left over from the Kirkland beatdown and defeat. bottomline, Lara snaps when he’s stretched. i see no such weakness in Canelo and i anticipate that he’ll probably improve on Kirkland’s performance, which is very bad news for Angulo. on the bright side, he scored in the Canelo $weepstake$. he couldn’t have done much better if he had been able to finish Lara before he was finished.

Canelo is LESSER than Lara. Expect a tough competitive Fight here that could go either way.

I do give Angulo a much better chance to beat Canelo, than I gave Rios over Pacquiao.

Well unless Canelo is faster than Lara, I see it differently. Canelo will get hit and hard! Angulo is solid.

Doesn’t matter what tie, day or moment Angulo gets Canelo. He’s going to take a beating, and it will be ugly. Holmes/Cobb duplicate. Angulo gets demolished and should retire. he never had any skills. A tough guy that eats punches all night. Canelo will win and his supporters will think he’s back and something special. Sorry, he’s limited and won’t beat the top guys, but Angulo isn’t very good. Canelo by stoppage before the 9th round easy.

I think Canelo has been managed well. I don’t blame his management for not throwing him in with Angulo with a Mayweather fight looming in the future. That being said, I think he would have beaten Angulo at anytime. That is if he didn’t end up with the bully mentatlity from facing all of the smaller opposition he faced. If that’s the case he could end up folding in a heated battle.

Cotto’s weather beaten anyhow. From his POV does he want to get smacked down by another guy at 154 or get whupped by Martinez with an outside chance he could win a belt in another division.

te tumbo

actually, Canelo ONCE AGAIN tried to confirm Cotto as his next opponent with a guaranteed $10 million payday. Cotto inexplicably declined, Again. Kirkland has also been slow to respond to Canelo’s challenge. interesting how quickly posters try and forget these rejected challengeS to question Canelo’s choice of another opponent. anyway, Angulo could’ve been designated “damaged goods” after the beating he absorbed v. Kirkland yet it was that version of Angulo who was able to Deck Lara twice for the first two KDs of his career. the hematoma that blew-up on his face is the only reason Lara survived what was building up to be another loss.

Fight Aficionado

Actually one could say Canelo’s getting Angulo at the right moment — just after his face imploded and he quit. If he’s damaged goods he’s not as dangerous for Canelo, who could’ve fought Angulo anytime but chose to do so now.

Posted February 18, 2014 2:59 pm

Canelo was probably begging to face a fighter who could land a glove on, after the Mayweather fight. And he got just that in Angulo.

Posted February 18, 2014 2:33 pm

Canelo will turn Angulo’s face into mush. By the time the late rounds approach, Angulo will be in such bad shape, that Canelo’s suspect stanima problems, won’t matter.

Posted February 18, 2014 2:24 pm 


Tomato Can

Canelo’s only problem in this fight is this is the first natural 154 pounder with good power he’ll be facing. It’s all about how Canelo handles that power when and if he gets tagged. On the other hand Canelo’s going to have a hard time missing Angulo with anything, which will be like night and day compaired to what he had when facing Mayweather. If Canelo can handle Angulo’s pressure, all things point to Angulo recieving a lot of punishment, IMO.

I think Angulo would have beaten Canelo, before or after, the PBF fight. Angulo is Margarito-like in his attack and I don’t see Canelo being able to keep him off for 12 rounds. In the Trout fight, Canelo showed that he has stamina issues and in my opinion, that will be his biggest downfall. Unless he can hurt Angulo enough to keep him off, like Mosley and Pac-man were able to do against Margarito, I see Canelo getting stopped inside 12 rounds.

No I am drinking the whiskey while I am watching the fight. If I go out I will spend more money.

What is with Canelo’s penchant for wearing really tight shirts? That style went out a looooonnng time ago. BTW

I never said I wasn’t gonna watch or pay to watch it. I am merely stating that it is disappointing that it is on PPV. I know there are PPV worthy fights that don’t have Floyd or Pac fighting in them. I also know some of the fights that Floyd has fought in where not PPV worthy either. And you should already know as I have stated before that I would much rather get a non PPV worthy fight than go out because I will spend more money going out than I would watching a fight for $60 and a $30 bottle of whiskey

“Angulo has a very good chance to get the win here. This is a very close fight. The only disappointing aspect of this fight is the fact that it is on PPV”

I’ve already pre-paid for this fight Peej. I think it’s PPV worthy and that it will be a great fight. Really, there are PPV-worthy boxers and boxing events other than Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao fights.

Wait and see. You’ll regret not having paid to watch it live.

“The reason Floyd doesn’t go for the KO is because his hands CAN’T handle his power. Floyd has lots of power & his opponents show respect accordingly but his hands are fragile. That’s all there’s to it.”

Largo, that’s part of boxing. If a fighter has physical problems that prevent him from performing at his best, that’s the taxes the sport takes on its participants. Floyd sure didn’t seem to have any problem suckerpunching his way to a KO win over Ortiz–in fact, he jumped on the opportunity. Those were two, hard, devastating punches, and because of them, Ortiz has never been and will never be the same fighter again.

Floyd won’t commit because he doesn’t want to get hit.

BS

I think you’ve got it all wrong and have selected some interesting quotes from Canelo following the Mayweather schooling. I’m pretty sure he acknowledged that Mayweather was the best in the world and defeated him fair and square. And by saying that ‘it wasn’t my night’ doesn’t mean he’s in denial about it in any way shape or form, he’s just acknowledging that it was Mayweather’s night. It’s his first loss and this is his first ‘comeback’ fight in his pro career. So maybe we should let him off for choosing Angulo, who is a very capable fighter, also Mexican which the Mexican boxing fans will love, as I’m sure so will the rest of the world’s boxing fans. I don’t think it’s a sign of insecurity or that he can’t face the facts. I think when he wins this fight, he’ll go on to make a substantial challenge to a much bigger fight! One step at a time, and Angulo I don’t think is the easiest step to take.

Ortiz left class a lot earlier against Collazo.. A shorter lesson I guess.

The Mayweather fight doesn’t mean anything in regard to this fight, except point to the fact Canelo is having a hard time making 154. If he can rehydrate his body to 172 like he did vs Trout he will do well.

If not, it’ll be a tough night and he’ll have to think about moving to 160. You can’t abuse your body with that severe a dehydration and rehydration process forever. Your body rebells at some point.

When Floyd unleash his power, the effect on his foes is immediately palpable but his hands suffer as a consequence; we all know that…or should.

“Now IF you’re a SUCKER like Ortiz that disrespects the teacher ”

Face it, Floyd doesn’t like to get hit so he’ll never put himself in a position where he might. Therefore, he won’t be getting anymore KOs as a welterweight or jr. middleweight because short of a sucker punch, he won’t make the commitment he needs to make to get the KO. Marquez was able to KO Pac, and in devastating fashion, because he WAS willing to commit himself to the task. We will never see Floyd Mayweather do that for the rest of his career, at any weight. Well, except against Khan maybe. But Floyd will still potshot and keep his distance unless he’s absolutely sure he can stop Khan with minimum sacrifice on his part. Like I”ve always said, Mayweather just ain’t that tough. That’s why he has no KOs as a jr. middleweight and he never will.

“So, if Floyd is such an educator, how come he never goes for the KO–unless he can suckerpunch?”-Because that would cut the class session SHORT. Great educators don’t cut the class session short. They use the full time that they’re allotted….Now IF you’re a SUCKER like Ortiz that disrespects the teacher and purposely tries to get kicked out of class then the teacher has no choice but to get him the f OUT of there.

“Angulo getting Canelo at the right time”…that’s bullsht, Angulo has a very good shot at upsetting Saul even if Canelo had defeated Floyd; the reason is simple: Angulo has power & he attacks non-stop so Saul STAMINA-or lack of-will be seriously tested…as simple as that.
