Put this link in your fav..

Another flawless showing by Maywheather who was just too fast for Canello.. Canello is one of my favorite boxers pounds per pounds, he tried his best but thats what happen when a superstar face a living legend.. Most of the rounds were close enough IMO but unfortunately for Alvarez, that was a very inspired Maywheather in the ring tonight that made basically no mistake all the fight long.. I dont know who is the judge that gave a 114-114 scorecard but he smoked some good stuff..

its probably a guy who is just as tired as I am to see mayweather play hide and seek and score points on defensive jabs. If you watched the fight, It could have gone a different way (on score) if you consider that the attacking boxer missed 2-3 shots before landing one. If you know anything about boxing, mayweather performed well defensively but turned what could have been the fight of the year into a cocky, humiliating and unsportsmanlike confrontation.

... about his contract with HBO, they are upset with him not taking the pac fight and forced Alvarez on him because he kept picking push overs. Alvarez was 42-0 at 23 years old and gave him a good fight. boxing being scored the way it is, mayweather won, but there has to be some acknowledgement that mayweather is not half as great as people say he is. he turns a great sport into a war of words, notoriety and cockiness.

Roy jones could have boxed that way. he decided to go all out. more or less same abilities ... but one clearly hyped boxing and made it fun to watch.

Completely agree!

Mayweather will end up being the most overrated boxer of all time.......next to Mike Tyson who never beat a heavyweight worthy of being a champion.

why? he's a defensive god, he does his thing and wins 45 times in a row. It might be boring for the fans, but I don't think he sees any reason to get in and go crazy, he's using his best tools and he's doing it well

St-Pierre gets the exact same complaints, yet he's the greatest fighter in the UFC

to bring it back to hockey : Lemaire's trap was godlike, and it was also boring as hell

still a good performance

Im not a big boxing fan but that was a boring fight a bit but good punches were thrown at times. I like boxers such as Roy Jones JR and Stevenson,they come to fight and get knockouts. Bute is overrated for example, his first real challenge was vs Froch and he got destroyed. I am not saying Mayweather isn't good but I find him a bit overrated.

Didn't he say if he had Olympic drug testing done he would have fought him and Pacquiao declined?

Alvarez Cotto Marquez De La Hoya Mosley ect ect... ALL WINS... Overrated lol what a joke, you just proved you know nothing about this sport.. If you meant unspectacular then I would understand since he isnt a KO machine but he does exactly what he has to do to win fights using his smart and lightning speed.. You cant hit what you dont see and Maywheather is just too smart and fast for his opponents, I personally learned to appreciate Maywheather's boxing style but I can understand some boxing fans dreaming of the day he fails, a day that may never happens..

He's one of the best, if anything he's underrated (not that would be possible )

But yea, his fights are boring because he's one of the best defensive boxers to step into the ring, and he takes no chances/risks, so you wont see anything "entertaining" in his fights.

It's like watching GSP fights, extremely skilled/technical fights but always a snoozefest.

Except that ufc is a much more complex sport and it's easier to appreciate the diversity of techniques and fight strategies, compared to boxing, which literally can be a snooze fest.

This argument of appreciating techniques and strategy is a bit overblown, at some point it's mainly two guys trying to knock out or strangle each others.

lol @ Mayweather and Tyson being overrated. Tyson made some great fighters look like amateurs. all you can blame him for is making the mistake of trusting Don King and going for easy money fights.

they are legends. there's no other way around it.

Care to name any great fighters that Tyson defeated while they were anywhere close to their prime.........you won't find a single one.

He would have bee a punching bag for the Ali's, Frazier's, Foreman's of the world in their prime.

those are excuses. Spinks, Smith were great fighters in their own right.

Tyson destroyed heavyweights who were all 4-5 inches taller ( add in the reach adv. they had ) than him.

his defensive skills alone would have made sure he could have kept up with the other greats before him. no way would he have been a punching bad.
