    Pretty much this, Canelo is a can and overrated , like @quincy k says a prime Murray would dominate Canelo .. wait nevermind @quincy k doesn't remember saying it..

    Anyway like he was saying if any boxer can withstand Canelo's overrated power they win become that's the only way Canelo can win or any boxer for that matter .

    Just curious @quincy k how do you see ggg vs Canelo going down ?

    That's the same way I feel GGG should be the heavy favorite but I don't understand why so many pros trainers , fighters and industry insiders are picking Canelo to win

    if the golovkin that fought murray still exists(the abililty to throw 1000 punches a fight), which i think he does, alvarez loses 9-3 or 10-4. he goal will be to survive the 12 rounds sometim after the sixth round when it will be obvious that golovkin is on a different level as a 160 as opposed to a 154

    canelo is not a can. hes just completely unproven at 160 and has done nothing at 154 to suggest that he will have success at 160 where in the last 10 or even 15 years its hard to find 154s that successfully moved up and did well at mw. imo, canelo relies on his size and strength and that will be negated at 160

    so you have nothing to add to the conversation regarding that fact that canelo has faced four top 154s and has faliled to dominate either of them and that a prime proven 160 like martin murray could not beat canelo?

    okay

    All hype bro imo. De la Hoya could of made this happen a while back but he knew Alverez wasn't ready. At this point it should at least be interesting.

    You know all industries are cliqued up so they support each other even when they know defeat is likely. You may hear Floyd pick Canelo but thats because they fought each other and so on.

    And at this point I feel like today's experts often times do not know what they are talking about.

    Unless you're talking about a Martin Murray I've never seen I think you're high.

    I think golovkins jab is going to cause a lot of problems for canelo , both of them have really good chins. Ggg defense is a bit underrated

    Golovkin also has a kryptonite chin, and Canelo's not the hardest puncher in the game

    Canelo could win on points if GGG doesn't knock him out before decision time

    the entire forum?

    or do you mean you and a couple of your anti golovkin buddies?

    its funny to see guys like you jump from danny to canelo just in the hopes of seeing golovkin lose

    like it means something in your life

    Timing. Canelo will be barrelling into this fight with a full head of steam (string of wins), much to prove (being called a duck), and a confidence that is retard strong (feels he can compete at 160+ after taking apart such a big guy in Chavez Jr.). Golovkin, in the eyes of some, might be slipping. Mid-thirties is when fighters naturally start to slow down, it's been in the history books for forever. I love the exceptions when the older fighter wins (like Foreman against Moorer, or Hopkins against Tarver), but Alvarez is just getting better at what he has always been good at, whereas Golovkin is being accused of slowing down and being "exposed".

    All of my analysis tells me that GGG should win this fight. He wasn't exposed, people that have eyes know of his weaknesses going into the Jacobs fight, and honestly, with Brook...a welterweight that good is gonna steal two rounds from ANY 154 or 160 fighter. They are faster and usually have quicker feet. It's down the stretch where weight tells and this was the case in Brook's defeat. Imagine Brook as a naturally size MW? He'd be near or at the top of the heap. Anyway, I don't see Golovkin looking old or slowing down. I also don't see Alvarez as a fighter that has improved his weaknesses - we just forget them because he keeps dominating. His feet suck, his conditioning won't get any better as he puts on more muscle. And GGG? He is gonna put the mental and physical pressure on Alvarez.

    The power, chins, body punching of both men, and Alvarez's ability to stay focused and sharp for a full twelve rounds without getting lazy, like, at all, will be important considerations.

    The old rule that a good big guy beats a good guy moving up in weight might hold true here.

    The sparring notes from 2011 were interesting. Alvarez never shook GGG, but GGG hit Alvarez so hard that Alvarez was walking around, shaking out his foot between rounds. How much has GGG declined since then? I wonder.

    I hope if Canelo wins , those saying GGG he will get credit in defeating an elite guy and not that GGG got old

    are you referring to the guy who said canelo outboxed lara?

    canelo landing just 23 percent of his punches against erislandry?

    is that the "people" that you are referring to?

    i think its more of how much the 21-year-old canelo has imporved since 2011 rather than how much golovkin has declined.

    There are plenty of people here who are Golovkin fans or are picking Golovkin over Canelo who would find serious issue with the claim that Martin Murray would dominate Canelo.
