Guerrero was in a much lower Division than Aydin and Berto TOO. Older, slower,and smaller yet he WON. SO Division, older, smaller, and slower are not as much of a factor as SKILL level and Boxing IQ.

Marquez was a champ but in a much lower division. But still a top level boxer albeit older, slower, smaller than Jr. Judah was only champ because of a loophole that allowed him to keep a belt he should have lost. The actual facts don’t sound quite as impressive as partial truths. But still an impressive resume overall.

Now wait for Trout to suffer some injury or loss. Canelo can hurt guys just by trying to sign a fight with them kind of a boxing version of those Final Destination movies. But I would like to see this one. This is the most logical fight.

Nope. Its a no brainer that SKILLS, Boxing IQ, and Speed TRUMPS youth, power, strength, and size. Chavez Jr. agrees with ME on that!!

Posted December 6, 2012 1:57 pm 


It’s Me, Ernie

It’s a no-brainer, real fight fans want to see real fights, and Floydie would have little chance to overcome the youth, strength, size and power of Canelo.

Mayweather won’t be fighting anyone, he’s gone, screaming for blood tests 90% of payday, his day as gone, Trout v Alvarez it is!

There is no such thing as too much youth, strength, and power unless there’s a negligible difference in SKILLS, Boxing IQ, and Speed. Floyd has too much SKILL, Boxing IQ, and Speed for Alvarez therfore youth, strength, and Power are trumped. Alvarez had better try to start off with a #0 P4P CHAMP before he tries to take a run at the #1 P4P CHAMP.

I hope alvarez takes trout over cotto by picking trout as his opponet means alvarez wants real challenges .some thing most fight fans find admirable trout is a crafty lefty there hard to beat and many dont want to face them

Size does not matter , but Floyd is showing his age, Cotto was able to get to him so was Ortiz,, The youth and the strength is what Floyd will avoid from here on in even more then he has in the past, The Ghost is a safe fight Floyd will take that mark my words-peace

Posted December 5, 2012 11:05 pm 


srminimo

Historically sIze has mattered less against Floyd just because he’s so hard to hit and his inside game is so good, but still I’m pretty sure the only one who is really Interested in Canelo/Floyd at this point is Canelo. I’m not sure Golden Boy is willing to step Canelo up from Josesito to Floyd just like that and I think Floyd would rather fight an aging Paquiao at this point (IF he can beat Marquez) and that’s why we haven’t heard a peep from him. But the more Floyd waits, the better the chance for Canelo, unless he just can’t make 154 anymore.

Posted December 5, 2012 11:00 pm 


fightfan19

Mayweather or Trout vs. Canelo equates to a loss for Alvarez. His foot movement is terrible and he has to be set to throw punches. Trout and Mayweather won’t stand in front of him; they will give him angles that he can’t handle. Canelo is flat footed and overrated. He will lose to the first decent boxer he faces. Sorry Mexican fans but your boy is overrated. Has not one significant win on his resume and he does not have the skill sets to be anything more than a fan favorite who brawls.

Posted December 5, 2012 10:53 pm

Floyd will fight the Ghost , he is a small man with little pop at 147, Canelo poses way to much youth strength and power for Floyd to fight, Look for the weakest fighter out there Floyd will pick him every time-May 4th we will see Canelo Trout- PEACE

Floyd beat 9 CHAMPS in his last 10 Fights. Go look at his resume… or I may know them by heart Baldomir was a CHAMP, Gatti was a CHAMP, Judah was a CHAMP, Hatton was a CHAMP, De la Hoya was a CHAMP, Mosely was a CHAMP, Ortiz was a CHAMP, Marquez was a CHAMP, and Cotto was a CHAMP. That’s 9 CHAMPS in his last 10 Fights. WOW!!!!

Posted December 5, 2012 10:19 pm

What 9 champs are you talking about that Floyd beat..? Last time I remember Mayweather winning against a real champ was Jose Luis Castillo at lightweight and maybe Shane Mosley at 147 but Im not sure about that one.

“Broner hasn’t even fought as a jr. welterweight yet.”-SO WHAT??? Boxing is a Sport NOT a Division. Broner has fought as a Boxer before and at the CHAMPIONSHIP level vs. a World CHAMP which Canelo has NOT done. SO he is more qualified to face the CHAMP of ALL CHAMPS than Canelo IS.

Posted December 5, 2012 9:39 pm 


UJelly?

The only way Mayweather loses to Alvarez is if the size differential proves too much. Alvarez is a BIG jr middle… he’s not necessarily tall or overly muscled, but he’s very solid and has a big guy’s frame… I’d be surprised if he can continue making 154 for much longer coz he’s still young and his body still probably has a little more filling out to do.

Posted December 5, 2012 9:37 pm 


Hidalgo

Braggadamus, Titopa, and all y’all: Miguel Cotto is Miguel Cotto whether he’s wearing a title belt or not. Just because he was a champion at the time he fought Floyd didn’t make him any harder to beat. Floyd was heavily favored and took his title as expected. Trout beat Cotto as expected ( at least many of us did–you didn’t even make a prediction on who would win that fight, DID YOU?) Canelo will TKO Cotto as expected, he will beat Austin Trout, Erislandy Lara, James Kirkland, and Vanes Martirosyan. Canelo will be the next jr. middleweight unified champion. Wait and see. He might as well take care of Floyd now rather than later. He’ll get more credit for the win.

Posted December 5, 2012 9:37 pm 


Boxtradamus

Hookoffthejab-Don’t worry about Hissydalgo. HE has NO concept of what being a CHAMP means. He thinks that beating a CHAMP is equivalent to beating a NON CHAMP. With HIS logic I can be even more impressive than Ali in his PRIME. Because I can beat Foreman right NOW even WORSE than Ali DID when Foreman was a CHAMP.

Posted December 5, 2012 9:35 pm 


Hidalgo

Braggadamus, let me know when someone else beats Canelo. As for your comment about Broner being next in line before Canelo. Broner hasn’t even fought as a jr. welterweight yet. Fool, the man is just a lightweight right now! Alvarez would be fighting Mayweather at jr. middleweight, a division both fighters are currently fighting in. And don’t forget, ignoramus, Canelo IS a champion–RIGHT NOW! Right up Floyd’s alley. MAKE THE FIGHT!

Posted December 5, 2012 9:33 pm 


Boxtradamus

“Except that Alvarez will TKO Cotto, wait and see.”-Well IF he does he’ll be TKOing the NON CHAMPIONSHIP version of Cotto SO I am not impressed by that. Beating a CHAMP impresses ME. And beating a Top 10 P4P CHAMP impresses ME more. When Canelo beats a CHAMP then let ME know. Until THEN please take some time to learn the difference between beating a CHAMP and a NON CHAMP. IF you can’t figure it out just ask someone that knows more about Boxing.

“canelos fan boys salivate at the thought of seeing him in his shorts quiet sic really” Hookoffthejab, I’m no canelo fan boy but I do know talent when I see it. Like Trout Alvarez is underrated. Beyond that, consider: Floyd performed no better against Mosley than Canelo did. Floyd performed a little better against Cotto than Trout did, both men dominating Cotto. If they fight, Canelo will be the first boxer to stop Miguel Cotto since Manny Pacquiao. A lot of boxing fans expect Canelo to TKO Cotto. I’m one of those fans. And I bet I’m right. So, let Floyd pick little Robert. He’ll beat Robert. But Saul Alvarez? At this point in time he’s not just a kid anymore. He’s the next unified jr. middleweight champion. Wait and see.

“STILL won by UD with exactly the same scores that Mayweather did over Mosley”-Which is a VERY POOR result vs. the #0 P4P NON CHAMPIONSHIP version. Let ME know when Canelo beats a CHAMP. Broner is in FRONT of Canelo in line for a Floyd Fight. At least he has a World CHAMP on his resume……Sorry but we have seen time and time again what happens when a #0 P4P Fighter goes from facing a fellow #0 P4P opponent and then gets catapulted into a Fight with a Top 2 P4P opponent. A BLOWOUT……Roy Jones Jr., Clottey, Margarito, Ortiz, and Mosley agree with ME on that!!

Posted December 5, 2012 9:23 pm

“Alvarez on the other hand fought a game, tough 12 round fight with Shane,”-LOL. Which is exactly why he’s not ready for Floyd. He fought a tough 12 round Fight with the #0 P4P NON CHAMP version of Mosley……Pacquiao dispatched with THAT version of Mosley with EASE. And SO would any other Top 10 P4P Fighter.

Posted December 5, 2012 9:17 pm

“Floyd barely managed to hang on against Mosley”-YES. Hanged on and then dominated the #3 P4P and CHAMPIONSHIP version of Mosley. Canelo beat the #0 P4P NON CHAMPIONSHIP version of Mosley BIG difference. Are YOU just dumber than DUMB or just stupider than STUPID??? Please learn more about Boxing and the difference between a CHAMP, a Top 10 P4P CHAMP, and a NON P4P NON CHAMP.

“Canelo would be HUMILIATED by Floyd . . .” i.e., HATE. otherwise, how can that be true if you also believe that Cotto was recently able to test Floyd in their bout(?) and are now desperate to protect Cotto from Canelo’s wrath? makes no boxing sense at all but hate by it’s very nature is irrational.

Hidalgo – Go talk to Golden Boy buddy….they already said “Canelo isn’t quite ready for Mayweather”….they’re not stupid. IF they were to fight, it will be in a couple years when Floyd is half way out the door or when Canelo shows he can hang with the VERY TOP of the sport. So far, he’s beaten guys he was supposed to beat.

Posted December 5, 2012 8:51 pm

You guys are being fooled by Golden Boy….Canelo is purely a product (as of now) of careful matchmaking. Look at his record….now, name ONE, just ONE elite level opponent he defeated at 154lbs??? Bet you can’t.

Posted December 5, 2012 8:49 pm

Hidalgo – Canelo would be HUMILIATED by Floyd….literally. Canelo will find out real quick that Floyd is leagues above ANYONE he’s every faced. Canelo needs someone who’s stationary, someone who’ll stand there and let him hit them. Floyd will pick him apart, Canelo is green…that power won’t matter when he finds out he can’t hit Floyd. IF (huge IF, Golden Boy won’t let it happen) they ever fought, my ‘Money’ would be on Mayweather via TKO.

Mosley and Zab in the early round stunned Floyd never hurt him, Canelo simply doenst have what it takes to beat him, Slick fast counter punchers have the best chance at detroning him, But again his defense and counter kill them I say Floyd is unbeatable right now maybe age will catch up with him but even after long layoffs he dominates.

“Canelo hasn’t even beaten a World CHAMP yet …” LMAO at Braggadamus! Keep telling yourself that. And put your boner away! Geezuz, every time you hear the name Floyd Mayweather Jr. you get a woody. FMJ will NOT beat Canelo Alvarez. Floyd barely managed to hang on against Mosley–and I do mean HANG–before Mosely quit and let him win the fight. Alvarez on the other hand fought a game, tough 12 round fight with Shane, beat the crap out of him, and STILL won by UD with exactly the same scores that Mayweather did over Mosley. Besides that, only one fight–Pacquiao/Mayweather would bring more money and more views than a bout with Canelo. Stuff your BS about the wonderful Floyd Mayweather Jr. Canelo will beat him when they fight. And like I said, Alvarez will be Trout and Cotto too. Except that Alvarez will TKO Cotto, wait and see. Wait and see. BTW hotshot, my prediction record since the beginning of 2012 is better than yours. Do your homework bonehead, you’ll see. So, get used to it, Alvarez will beat Mayweather when they fight.

te tumbo – I prefer he fight Trout….since he was scouting Cotto and Cotto clearly lost, it’s only right he fight the winner of that bout, being, Trout…plus, there will be another title on the line…Canelo will have something to gain and not just lose. Lara and Martirosyan can fight again to determine a victor, to determine who will face the winner or Trout vs Canelo. Sounds damn good to me.

Posted December 5, 2012 6:25 pm

Btw, now what Cotto is apparently out of the running, i would prefer that Canelo face Kirkland or Lara. Kirkland has earned it and Lara deserves it in the worst way. Molina is the dangerous dark-horse in the equation. i would suggest that Canelo save him for later while taking note of what Molina is actually capable of.

Posted December 5, 2012 5:56 pm 


te tumbo

if neither Canelo or Trout have particulary distinguished ring-resumes, why is Trout (and his boosters) inSisting that Alvarez agree to fight him next? according to them (and this writer) Canelo is little more than an unproven without a Cotto on his ring-resume. in which case, Alvarez should be begging Trout for the matchup or Trout can select a proven and worthier opponent, e.g., Lara? Kirkland? Molina? otherwise, Canelo has ZERO obligation to share his fanba$e or unearned(?) prominence with Trout but IF he does, it’s Alvarez who is targeting risky comp and assuming ALL the risk in a lose-lose contest that will not increase his stature any more than a win over the smaller Lopez did. IMO, Trout poached the HOF scalp meant for Canelo’s ring-resume and so convincingly that there is virtually no residual greatness to elevate Saul’s ring-profile. bottomline, Trout and Mayweather are simply trying to dip-in to Alvarez’s fanba$e but it is Canelo who gets ALL of the credit for risking a loss v. dangerous competition.

If Canelo’s being truthful and indeed is down to make a bout vs Floyd or Trout I’ll give him props for stepping up to the best comp available. To date his opposition hasn’t been that good and I’m waiting for his big step up.

Hope the fight with Floyd comes off, as he’s starting to age a bit and you never know when the reflexes will slip enough to allow for if not defeat at least more interesting fights. But, if not, Canelo would deserve respect for actually agreeing to fight Trout, who is the best other matchup at 154 (i.e., assuming the Mayweather fight isn’t made). And I would view Alvarez-Trout as a toss-up.

I think Mayweather beats Canelo handily and makes him look like a limited slugger. That said however I don’t believe Mayweather will take the fight. Canelo is young, strong, aggressive, hungry and there’s to much risk there. Floyd like fights he believes he can win handily. I believe he could and would but I don’t think Floyd feels that way.

Great fight though if it can be made. If it can not be made then Trout is the only acceptable option for Canelo.

Well GBP tried to talk up a Cotto bout regardless of the fact that Cotto looked average saturday and even more to the point he was beaten rather easily. so Alvarez has no choice but to be interested in fighting Trout if there is no Mayweather bout, talking about fighting a semi retired Cotto just is not going to cut it with fight fans and they are starting to lose patients with him and GBP.

Good work Rob, there is no way Mayweather is going to fight Alvarez next and you analysis is correct. On Mayweather’s risk/ reward scale Guerrero makes more sense.

However this does not rule Alvarez out for next year, it may very well be a bout Mayweather may look at after the Guerrero bout.
