    I was just about to make a thread too lol. It appears they aren't interested in any more fights at 168. Seems like Canelo plans to target the weakest champs he can find at 175 and 200. Not a fan of this

    So he picked a small weak cruiserweight champ to pad his record so casuals swoon over '5 division wc' without even clearing out his division.

    No surprise.

    I assume he moves up to cruiser wins a title to get the 5 weight thing then drops down to light heavy and campaigns at that

    I think Saul beats Benazidez easy but to skip over him and Beterbeast is bullshit.

    The light heavyweight limit is 176 so anything over 176.5 and under 200.

    cruiserweight is terrible, so, this is doable.

    I mean, what more can I say?

    The worst champion at CW is obviously Makabu. He got knocked out by Tony Bellew, which is embarrassing, and he's only 6'0 tall. He's even shorter than Caleb Plant.

    I guess if it's not fighting mandatories at 168, the next best thing is to go belt hunting against the weakest champions. He's not the first person to do this, but he shouldn't be getting credit for it either.

    Its history hes chasing. 5 Weight Champ, first from Mexico to do it, 2nd of Mexican ancestry to do it and the 6th in history to do it, I believe.

    I used to make jokes about Canelo moving up to heavyweight and winning a title. They're not jokes anymore.

    Also all you cans degrading canelo for moving up to cruiserweight DKSAB. Same thing Pacquiao and RJJ did but people lauded them for it.
    Moving up to 200 God damn pounds is gangster shit no matter how you cut it.
