    Canelo has beaten better boxers than BJS. BJS has done fuck all. Canelo mops the floor with him.

    Cherry picking champions. What a sentence.

    Not really sure what your problem with BJS is. He’s clearly a very talented and accomplished boxer.

    I mean, if we’re looking at common opponents, he controlled Lemieux as well as—if not better than—GGG did.

    We really don’t know what his ceiling is, but it’s foolishly uncharitable to assume he is trash, not when you actually look at how well he fights.

    My recommendation would be to take a break from the hate-orade, and try to chill out.

    Hes a scumbag who has never fought any of the top dogs and blatantly ducks them all.

    Easy to look good when you dont fight the best.

    BJS can eat shit.

    Well if he wants a real paycheck he’ll fight one of them eventually.

    If you want to hate on him though, whatever I guess.

    Is anything I said untrue?

    It would appear you think so since you consider this as “hating on him”. Which part of it is untrue, if so?

    Irrespective of personality or lifestyle, I think it’s pretty clear that BJS is a talented boxer. I don’t think this can be really argued
    against.

    He’s completely handled some fairly decent fighters such as Andy Lee, David Lemieux (already mentioned), Willie Monroe Jr, etc. And was competitive with a guy like Eubank Jr, who isn’t a pile of shit, by any stretch of the means.

    Sure, he hasn’t fought the top top echelon guys yet, and if that’s your gripe, then good on you. But if we’re being real, he’s clearly a talented fighter, and it’s a bit ridiculous to say otherwise.

    I mean, if we’re talking levels or echelons of talent, he’s got to be one pretty close to the top. Maybe a couple of rings down from the top, but right up there. Which is still better than 99.99% of the population of the planet.

    So basically, I feel you’re being pretty unfair.

    Talented boxer who continues to duck the top challengers. Also a scumbag.

    Seems pretty fair to me. Nothing I have said is untrue.

    Fair enough is fair enough.

    Maybe one day he’ll stop ducking and we’ll get to see how good he really is.

    If not, then mores the pity.

    BJS isn't a bad name in the picture by any means, but he's probably not even beating Andrade, let alone one of the big names. Canelo would likely stop him. But who knows? No one expected Tyson Fury to have an easy time with Wlad.

    In a sport where there are at least 5 ‘world champions’ per weight, it’s very possible. Most don’t even consider fielding a champion. His belt was fckin Mickey Mouse

    Nothing too bad but he’s incredibly disrespectful and Unlikeable. I mean the opposition he’s faced is no worse than many other champions, but doing things like getting your young son to hit his opponent in the bollocks at the weigh in, is bang out of order.
    us brits are are generally partisan when it comes to our sportsmen/women, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t want to see him starched, even though he is skilled
