Look I'm no Canelo fan but you're going way overboard here. Tyson Fury doesn't have Canelo's skills, nor has he achieved half of what Canelo has achieved. Also, Saunders did not win a single round against Canelo, unless you just listen to weird UK/Sky commentary. He was getting murdered from start to finish. The other guys - Usyk, Crawford, Inoue, Chocolatito etc - sure they're probably more skilled boxers, although it could be argued that only Usyk and Chocolatito have an actual resume comparable with Canelo (Crawford and Inoue should get there but they haven't done enough yet). Please note I already had Usyk number one on my P4P list above Canelo.What's harsh about that? In terms of skills every guy I named is superior to Canelo.
Canelo has a career which is cleverly manipulated into making some fans, especially casual boxing fans believe the hype...before this weekend there was talk on Sky, ESPN, DAZN, iFL etc that Canelo would legitimate challenge Usyk LOL The same Canelo who has been given about 5 gift decisions in his career, more than any top flight fighter I have seen in nearly 25 years of watching boxing.
Btw, Canelo didn't lose the Bivol fight based on size, there were no size issues what so ever. He was simply outboxed by the superior boxer, as was the case gaainst GGG, Lara and some may say Trout and Cotto. Heck Canel owas being soundly out boxed by fat Saunders until he quit.
If anyone is surprised Canelo was so easily out boxed, they haven't been watching his career.
Maybe instead it's better to praise Bivol for the boxing masterclass rather than just **** on Canelo.
