    Default Can you see Canelo beating Floyd Jr?

    Out of all the possibilities for Floyds next fight, and for his age, Canelo is one of the stronger and more dangerous options, although young, his boxing ability and game is so far a bit untested and unknown, he also has as fast hands as anyone else in the running for Mayweather's next super fight

    Will it happen? How are you calling that fight? your thoughts?

    To be honest, Floyd is all in another league compared to Canelo. The young ginger sure shows some nice skills, grits and seems to have a nice jaw but at this very moment, I don't see many guys able to shake off Floyd from his throne (except perhaps Manny if he comes on his best day and then again, I am not sold).

    yeahh i too see it that way really, I don't think there is anyone to beat floyd..

    The most dangerous in my opinion are Maravilla (weight wise i cant see it happening) and Canelo, because both are fast and can punch. but Floyds whole style, attitude, game is different to most, some come with their style and stick to it, and others can mix it up and do what needs to be done, but it seems like no guys can really do that to floyd

    Its just one of those things im asking people they opinion, cause for example canelo hasnt come against another boxer anywhere near floyds capability and won, mostly punchers, some boxer punchers with some skill, awkward stylists like rhodes, but Im thinking it could be comparable to a mosely situation in which mosely is a boxer puncher, fast hands 'can' box (against a puncher) and win and look good, but when a guy boxes against him, he can't out box a boxer.

    If this got signed for 5 may the answers arent there right now, its a possibility that canelo has what it takes but no solid reason to beleive it just yet, its unproven but not impossible. thats an angle to work for the fight definately,

    I'm open to Floyd - Cotto @ 154 for another jr middle belt. Its a big show, Entertaining fight.

    Think that sturm is too big, doubt that floyd will look for a middleweight title
    Which is a shame cause alot of other fighters went and got that mw title, Leonard, Oscar, Did duran get mw? or jnr mw and super mid? i forget, cba to boxrec

    Floyd has no business at that weight.
    Canelo stop being a pussy and fight a cruiserweight world champion, now that's a challenge.

    People stop talking about floyd vs Canelo as it smells like shit.

    Canelo vs macklin or barker

    Not a bad style match but I don't think it'll happen soon. I think Alvarez needs to put alot more polish on his game and cred to inspire Floyd to roll the dice there. Alvarez has the exposure but with respects to weary Cintron may need that big scalp first to lead into it. All in all it's what the sport needs more of...elite fighting one of clear cut next generation. Waiting on divas to mix it up is seeing us all miss other opportunitys.

    Now I'm going to try to answer this without being bias since I'm a Canelo fan lol. Saul has a shot. Let's be honest you can't outbox Floyd we all know that. But you can outfight him, Castillo did and in many people's opinion won the fight. Now sure Floyd has improved but we saw Floyd VERY hurt when he was rocked by Mosley. If Canelo was to catch Floyd like that and that's a big IF he would have to put pressure and go in for the knock out. Because that's the only way I can see him beating Floyd putting pressure taking him off his game and hoping for the KO. I feel he would have to do this early as Floyd kinda takes the first rounds easy and feels out his opponent we saw this in the Judah fight were he gave many rounds, when Mosley rocked him early, with Ortiz, Hatton. But he quickly kicks it into gear and dominates in the later rounds. Like I said that's my opinion on HOW he could POSSIBLY win. As per my prediction, I feel like Floyd would outbox him and stop him in the late rounds. Canelo is far too young and not as experienced for Floyd..

    Canelo gets tagged to easily against lesser opponents. Floyd counters him all night to a boring UD.
