The journalist from ESPN, David Faitelson, reignited the controversy in their social networks by not placing Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez as the best pound for pound in the world in a ranking made in ESPN.
The journalist’s list was composed as follows:
- Terence crawford
- Errol spence jr
- Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez
- Tyson fury
- Naoya inoue
- Manny pacquiao
- Josh taylor
- Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada
- Oleksandr Usyk
- Vasyl Lomachenko

The ranking of David it was different from that of his pair of companions Jorge Eduardo Sanchez Y Bernardo osuna, who did not hesitate to place the super middleweight multi-champion as the best man of the moment.
Likewise, none of them placed Manny pacquiao in his ranking after almost two years of inactivity of the Filipino.
Another fighter who appeared in the top 10 of the three was Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada, who placed eighth on all three lists after his controversial triumph over Román “Chocolatito” González.
David received multiple criticisms and comments, after he excluded the Canelo from the first place.

Some took the opportunity again to remind him of the blow he received from the former footballer Cuauhtémoc White and many others filled him with insults.
Exactly, no wonder Faitelson is the only jerk who doesn’t put Canelo at # 1

Faitelson is recognized as one of the greatest critics in the career of Saul Alvarez, who in each fight takes the opportunity to make a controversial comment.
The Jalisco fighter and his team have even engaged in discussions via social networks with the journalist who they have branded as having something personal against him.
