Canelo dominated the fight with Smith. Smith performed badly so much so that it was a mismatch. Watching the fight, I see Canelo walk through punches. I notice Canelo had what appeared to be a thicker neck and definitely more muscular. By round 3, I was confident that Canelo was PEDs again.

Then I started thinking of his past. I remember thinking the Kovalev fight was a scam. I have no doubt that Kovalev took a dive for $12M. That knockout was fake. Then add in the GGG fights.

As we know Boxing has messy history. I believe by allowing Canelo to go up and down the weight classes loaded on PEDs will significantly increase the potential for him to become the greatest ever, and I don't think he is.

My assumption will be validated if Canelo cuts weight to defend those lighter weight belts. Roy Jones contended that he lost strength going down in weight. Going up was easier than going down.

The fights with GGG were a fraud because of blatant rigging by the judges. PED's play no role as GGG still beat him every time.

Totally agree with this. GGG beat him in those fights.


Also, to the op Bondurant, I dont think he's a "fraud". I just think that Mexican fighters just completely OWN Brit fighters. Like, its pretty much a guarantee that any of those super hyped by promoter Brit fighters will get killed by whoever Mexican they fight. We've seen it time and time again with Brit fighters in getting their butts kicked by fighters from North America. The only exceptions where Lennox Lewis and to a lesser extent Calzage (who would have been killed by a prime Bernard Hopkins).
