    Hmmm...it’s not a bad fight but there are bigger fish to fry at middleweight. Jacobs is the obvious fight. That should be #1 priority. Charlo should be #2. I’m really hoping Canelo isn’t trying to run from the middleweight division.

    It sounds good saying that you jump around weights, but it just makes it easier to avoid the best fighters.

    I think Callum Smith is a harder fight for Canelo than Jacobs or Charlo. Smith is a real super middleweight champion and bigger and more dangerous than anyone at middleweight.

    I think this is more about getting Canelo global exposure and especially here in the UK and Europe, can him and Smith fill Wembley... doubt it but i can definitely see Hearn, Oscar and DAZN wanting to pimp him out around the world.

    Talk’s cheap. I don’t reckon he’s got the nuts to do this.

    I don’t think Callum Smith is special, just a good big guy, he fights basically the same way as his brother. Rematching GGG would’ve taken more courage than this would, as would fighting Charlo or Jacobs for my money, just stylistically. I don’t really understand how the deal Canelo signed works, is his purse basically the same for every fight until it expires, aside from some upside from the gate? Are they exclusively on DAZN or are there still some networks which will show them on PPV...

    Special enough to beat Canelo.

    Canelo is always going to be a huge ask for somebody with that style, you can dislike him immensely, but at least be fair. I seem to recall another guy you recently thought might give him some problems

    I hope we get to see. Doubt it though. Despite all of Oscar’s horseshit talk , I think we all know Canelo will fight Lemieux next at 168lb and probably an ancient GGG in September.
    Btw, I think I’m pretty fair to Canelo. Despite wanting GGG to beat him, I had the first fight a draw and Canelo winning the second fight.

    Wasn't that long ago that Canelo and Team claimed he was too small for middleweight. That was before the "marinating" talk. Now he's skipped middleweight altogether after two gifts against GGG and going after what they consider to be inferior opposition. Whether it's the case or not is besides the point. The point is Canelo and Team CONSIDER them to be inferior. Fielding was a sacrificial lamb that Team Canelo was lucky enough to find in their path.

    We boxing fans lose the perspective of time sometimes. Again, it wasn't that long ago Canelo was hiding from 160, starving himself to fight at 154 or some catchweight....... and all of a sudden there's nothing else to do at middleweight. Does Fishnets really think we're THAT stupid??

    They don’t need to hide it. His fan base is clueless. I had tons of Mexican fans on Facebook after the GGG fight claim to be so happy but never watch boxing nor did they even know about the PED issue which caused the fight to be pushed back. So why cover anything up when they can cheat out in the open and still get their way?
