    Not gonna lie, the first thing that came to mind when I saw both Canelo and Amir face off was "Damn man, Canelo got a big head!" Dude got a big ass head! I always thought Amir was pretty wide shoulder wise for his weigh and size. He says hes naturally 165 but we know Canelo is like 180. Dude has tree trunk legs. Wish Canelo wouldnt make a habit of forcing people to fight him at catchweights

    So its true Amir does have the height advantage. Canelo certainly has the wider frame though.

    Could the Golden Boy curse hit the Mexican Irish fighter , Khan can win with a good strategy , has chin is not as bad as many make it out to be ( I hope I eat crow ) but I can see Khan hurting Canelo bad

    Khan will put up a good enough fight but I think he's getting knocked out

    They look almost the same sized, It won't be much advantage for Canelo as much people think. Would be a great fight !

    WBC cutbacks. Those belts are expensive to make.

    His chin is Anderson Silva-esque Joe.

    Maybe it's Ring magazine's new belt. A symptom of dwindling sales, I guess. If Canelo loses it will just be a dollar bill folded into a ring.

    Right because everyone just walks through punches like that.

    His chin is not great and his recovery is not that great either but he actually does a good job of surviving more often than not. The Peterson and Maidana fights being good examples.

    Anderson had a legendary chin in his prime, don't make that comparison.

    This is what Im looking forward to most. When Khan gets KOed or knocked down it is always comical.
