  • Ok, Canelo will be out of action till September 2023. Usyk would have to get down to 190. In the meantime, Usyk could lose a fight.

    • Yes, agree….Canelo struggled against Bivol and was schooled. Usyk would batter and school Canelo.

  • Usyk fighting Canelo would be like Canelo fighting Tank Davis. What a ridiculous matchup!

    • Usyk vs Bivol would rise some interest, well, maybe, but there are other HW’s to challenge, if Usyk against the odds, would beat Fury.

  • Canelo fight won’t happen, its kind of crazy to expect him to face Usyk, esp after how Bivol handled him so easy.

    He’s not a HW, to be affective and be at the top, MW/ SMW is about his limit I’d think.

  • How can he target canelo! Bivol destroyed him singlehandanly! Usyk will retire canelo or possible ireversible brain damage if they ever fight unless he gets pay very very well to lose like kavalev, who took a dive for a nice check!

  • Payday payday payday! Is all Canelo is looking for now. Lost decisively against Bivol and looked not good against 40 year old GGG.

  • “Retire” I’d like to see Usyk fight Wilder than Fury. Canelo was just running his mouth. He couldn’t get by Bivol. If he’s looking to get KO’d he’d get into the ring with Usyk.

  • If he fights Canelo that will drop his stock as a great champion to drop down that far in weight to fight a little man.
