    I like how everyone thinks Canelo is some powerhouse hitter that will walk through Kovalev because he's shown some weakness to body shots when he is somewhat gassed.

    Canelo's power won't translate well. This is a 50-50 fight imo. There's some concern as to how serious Kovalev trains and also his age, but at 4/1 this is a no brainer +ev pick imo.
     
    vapor&dust and TEXASMOJO like this.

    Do you think Canelo has as much power as Ward or Alvarez?

    Canelo and Alvarez have pretty much the same power, TBH.

    Why is Alvarez bumping up too 175?? Makes no sense unless its ducking Golovkin

    Kov is damaged goods too.

    I think i will be placing a bet on kovalev

    I dont believe canelo has ever tasted the thunder kovalev is going to hit him with and I don’t think he is just going to walk through him with body shots when he is a middleweight who could probably still make 154 fighting a natural 175 who has extreme power

    I also think its wierd that so many people think Alvarez will walk through Kovalev.....he has one win at 168 against Rocky Fielding FFS....that is not preparing you for a fight against a hard hitting full sized LHW

    To expand on this, Rocky Fielding is not even in the top 5 SMW in the UK.....

    I think a few pounds may be going on Kovalev here

    I will be shocked in Canelo makes easy work of Kovalev. Even an older faded Kovalev is by far the biggest, hardest hitting guy Canelo will have ever faced. I don't think this will be easy for Canelo at all and he may even lose.

    Its because Kovalev can't take it to the body and Canelo is probably the best body puncher in the sport. We have yet to see power be a real issue with Canelo.

    I'm not sure if i've ever said that, but im not going to argue back and forth, its going to be a very interesting fight, Canelo hasnt been hit by anyone that will hit like Kova does, and im a fan of neither...i just think it will not be the walk in the park people are talking about
