That he is ....I was hoping Canelo would swerve and not give a payday to either Saunders or Callum Smith.

Saunders for being dislikable, and Smith because his last fight was a robbery.

Ideally John Ryder should be getting this paycheck.
would have loved for Canelo to give the real WBA champion a shot...

Ryder is too quiet for his own good. I know he's not the type but him saying nothing and being respectful has allowed the fight against Smith to be brushed under the carpet. He won that fight in many peoples eyes including my own. He's getting done out of another opportunity and earning a nice payday.

Its true you gotta hustle in this sport...should have launched a relentless social media campaign.

Thrown his name in the mix for Canelo as well.

He has lost out on a big payday because of his silence....! Promoters normally tell fighters they will get another opportunity down the line in order to keep them quiet.

Quiteness dont work in this sport goes for other fighters, as well.
The ones who are getting the checques are the likes of Chisora and Dillian Whyte who are not afraid to call out Eddie Hearn publicly as well.

I wouldn't ever bet against Canelo, but at 168 he has fought noboby but a shot Kovalev who was on wobbly legs against fringe world level Yarde. Most opponents Canelo has previously faced have not been similar in style to BJS. When was the last time he fought somebody with that style, maybe Lara? BJS hasn't fought anybody at 168 either tbh, buy i'm intrigued how BJS turns up for this and whether his stamina is improved.
That “shot” Kovalev was better than anyone Blow Job Saunders has fought, especially at 168lbs.

Canelo wrecks him.

I think it’s really lazy to criticise Canelo for having slow feet. You don’t need fast feet when you have upper body movement like Canelo. Hes not some plodder who just stands stiff in punching range.

Canelo is a master when it comes to distance control, counter punching, punch variation, combination punching & upper body movement.

I think this fight could be a bit of a stinker tbh. BJS will be on his bike from the opening bell trying to fiddle his way through the fight.

You need quick feet, to get close to your opponent to let your hands go. And pin down an opponent.

Otherwise a jab and run merchant will steal rounds, make one look foolish and frustrated. Despite Canelos technical attributes, he has a short reach, if an opponent keeps it long, by the time his punches reach the target the opponent will be gone.

I agree that if Billy Joel is in good form and fitness it will defiantly be a stinker for 6 rounds or so, either way though Canelo gets to him and wears him down gradually. I can already hear the boos from the Latino's in the crowd for the first half of the fight.

Are people forgetting that Trout was robbed, Lara was robbed, Floyd took the kid to school. A fit Prime on it BJS is Canelo's worst nightmare.
A prime fit on it BJ's best win is lemew, who no offense to him but he's rubbish he really is.

It's cash out time for BJ's, he's getting, you guessed it #bodied
