    It's obvious. He fights not to lose, rather than to put on a good fight, Mexican style. He had a guy who was beaten before he entered the ring last fight and never went for the kill.

    He also ducked GGG for a while and threw his belts away to avoid having to fight GGG. Mexicans admire bravery, not that cowardly kind of behavior.

    He played weight games for years, even having Canelo weight. Again, that's not Mexican.

    He gives off the manufactured pretty boy image first vibe that turned Mexican fans off ODH.

    If that was true why did Canelo break attendance records and the crowd was screaming his name ?

    You realize that crowd is less than .1% the size of the population of Mexico?

    The guy on the video is 100% right, Canelo fights for himself and for a paycheck so he is seen as cowardly and fake.

    I think it would be more likely that a boxer is hated for being too dark, right? Not that either situation has happened, I mean Mexicans adopted a couple of black Cubans as national icons

    I recall Barrera calling Morales an Indio which is ironic because the only white thing about Barrera is his skin. His facial features are pure Mexican IMO

    Doubt the money is the real issue here. Marquez made way more in his last 10 fights than Canelo did and he is beloved. Canelo's choice of promoter isnt helping either.

    Neither, they are boxers they will be loved or hated based on their performance.

    Indio is used like Americans use hick or redneck.

    Yeah I never thought either was likely but Indio seemed like a pure racial slur to me

    Not

    Let's take a look at the numbers instead of the goosip of guesses

    Ligamx is huge in Mexico it's soccer which if you did not know is huge in Mexico

    The finals garnered 20 points and involved the heavily popular America team


    Canelo garnered in Mexico 37.9 points

    Those are the ratings

    I get it he won't be liked by everyone , and his skills are called in question ( understandable) and his choice of opponents last 3 are questionable (again understandably so)

    But to question how hugely popular Canelo is in Mexico is just crazy and ignorant

    Say what you want.

    People hated Canelo for avoiding GGG, now people like him back.

    I agree with what you are saying in terms of his popularity. Dude has done superstar numbers numbers in a few fights, some of that being the opponent he was facing but none the less I would say, in America he's gotta be of the top 3 or 4 known active fighters behind pacq and perhaps a few others.**


    But if we are to talk about strictly why legends hate him I think him being with oscar holds a lot of weight.





    **I have done absolutely no research on this.
