I won't lie....the Canelo we saw Saturday is the same Canelo we saw in the Chavez fight. He wasn't getting tired, he threw endless combinations with damn near full force and he didn't sit between a few rounds. We may need to reopen the Mexican Cattle case and do some searching.
I watched Smith vs Groves and I didn't see anything he'd have for Canelo. Sergio Mora pointed out Callum's sub par jab and defense throughout the fight. He was merely a more mobile Rocky Fielding and I wasn't okay with that. I hated it. It almost seemed like he just showed up, took a beating and cashed his check.
I'm one of those guys who are gonna leave the whole, "He had a ton of heart and he took a beating but finished the fight on his feet.". I'm through with that. If you're being marketed as some type of threat and you're an undefeated fighter, why go in there and just lay down?
Again, NOTHING Callum did on Saturday suggested he should've been in there with Canelo in the first place. He did zero but wants the heart and support of the fans for taking a beating. I cannot.
Let's see where Canelo goes from here since he's a Super Middleweight nowadays.
