Canelo hasn't had the development needed to really be looking at Cotto, never mind Floyd. The Williams fight would have been a good test, but we just haven't seen the ginger against anyone who's actually that dangerous.
I think that's a little unfair. Sergio was Chavez's first legitimate championship fight, so it's not like there's a massive gap between the two. Alvarez was looking for a better fighter to tackle, Paul Williams, and lost out on that fight for obvious reasons. Then he went for Kirkland, who negotiated himself out of the fight. Then he wanted Ortiz, who got his faced smashed in. He, and GBP, obviously want bigger fights.Canelo is bad for boxing, he has not face one top 154lb fighter and last night fought a super lightweight, yet holds a belt. All the talk of Chavez being spoon-fed but Canelo gets it even easier.
Probably because Alvarez has generally looked more impressive consistently. Junior barely scraped by against Matt Vanda and bored the whole of the MGM Grand to death on the Pac-Cotto undercard against Troy Rowland.I agree they have both had it easy but I'm saying, Canelo seems to be the guy with all the respect yet in my eyes he is fighting weaker contenders than Chavez has been.
