3. When the Mayweather Decision Was Announced
Millard Fillmore the 13th President of the United States once said “an honorable defeat is better than a dishonorable victory.” An appropriate way to describe Canelo’s reaction to the only loss of his career at the hands of Floyd Mayweather. Many may not remember this, but when the score cards were announced they were waaaay closer than they should have been, one judge – CJ Thomas – had the bout a draw at 114-114. Upon hearing this the cameras caught Canelo disagreeing with that score, saying in Spanish “no, no, no…that was not a draw”. Canelo knew the deal, he knew he lost and was not about to run from it. That’s not just a legit fighter, but a legit man.
