    Y'all really havent made a thread on this. It was Sat and now Chavez is looking for Saul to give him rematch.


    Look at the Nasty Body Shot KO at 3:25.

    That's because it was a gross mismatch designed to be a showcase (tune-up) fight for Chavez Jr. His overmatched opponent was 25-10-1 and had been stopped 9 times in his career. Of course he wants the Canelo rematch. Who doesn't want the fame and money that comes with it? He had his chance the first time out and wasn't even remotely competitive with Canelo to generate interest in a second encounter.

    He could string together 10 KOs in a row for all I care. There will never be justification to rematch Canelo. He sucked so bad that night. There were rounds in that fight that he didn't even throw a punch. Awful fucking fight.

    he's won 51 fights. at some point, he was 46-0.

    now we've all seen him shit the bed in big fights, especially the canelo one, but come on. saying he's nothing is stretching it.

    Jr lacks significance. He may sneak his way to a belt, but elite will always be a bridge too far.

    Just saw his age, 33. lol. His career has really been a complete brain fart. He's already at where a 38-39 year old should be, well after their prime, just hanging on.

    I understand what you are trying to say. I used to be higher on Chavez, but he has done nothing at the highest level.

    He has a good record on paper, but it is extremely patted. Name me one top tier victory he has. I may be overlooking some fights, but I can't think of any at all.

    Personally, I think Chavez is a second rate fighter. He will never have a top notch win and is only calling out people like canelo in hopes of cashing out before he retires.

    I'd like to be wrong, but I just don't see him doing anything major at this point in his career.

    I suspect he'll take the sport seriously this time and reach his full potential.

    The thing that annoys me the most of the "never took it seriously... never fought at full potential" fighters are their fans. Not the fighters.
    Their fans can never accept the simple fact that their laziness or lack of dedication is the same as lacking in any of the other skills department.
