Protect Me Father For I Have Wins. Who are the most protected fighters today?

Well, let's leave Juanma off this list. After numerous near calamities, Juan Manuel Lopez finally met his Waterloo last fall before a much desired battle of undefeateds could be made between him and the much vaunted Yuri Gamboa. Say what you will but Juanma was not protected. 

Then there is the obvious candidate for the lifetime achievement award for protective custody, the son of the Mexican legend, Julio Cesr Chavez. No one is more protected that Junior and no one should argue otherwise.

His younger and arguably far more talented countryman, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is by comparison merely being 'guided' through the ranks. His minted belt notwithstanding, this kid has talent. How far he can go remains to be seen but with the proper protection (eg.careful match-making), he will be an attraction for quite some time.

And what about the others. Guys like Andre Ward have fought at or near home often enough to raise questions about an insidious form of protection; home town favoritism.

And now we have Lucian Bute, the talented Romanian who left home for Montreal, the place where he is rarely and/or barely challenged. Many believe him to be the goods. Most would like to see him step out and up and prove it.

That's my thumbnail list. Who do you think needs more challenges to avoid being added?
