Good luck to Canelo for coming up and challenging himself but the reason he stalled at 155 was to wait until they thought GGG was ripe for the picking.
And even then, Canelo needed home cookin' to get the W.



But He is the second best boxer at 160.

And 175 isn't a huge jump, given that he walks around at around 180.

And Kov is probably past prime.

And GBP wouldn't be interested unless the fight was low risk.

And if it goes to the cards, you saw what happened to GGG twice...
... not to mention what happened to Kov against Ward.

So, all things considered, look for Canelo to make it to the final bell, and its a done deal.

Kov can upset the applecart only by landing something big on . A puncher's chance.



Thus, the probabilities are as follows:


Canelo by decision....60 %

Canelo by KO.....10 %

Draw........1%

Kov by KO 25 %

Kov by decision 4 %

Like now? Already? The fight isn't even official yet.
(Edit: just saw it's official)

I can understand it though: with Khan there was the chance he was going to outbox Canelo, which he actually did until he got stopped.
Kov looked dreadful against Yarde from every standpoint.
Khan has never outboxed any elite fighter in his life the bookies fucked up with them odds, Canelo took 3 rounds to throw punches and then still wobbled by the first punch that landed, Yarde is a huge LHW he would beat Canelo if he made it a dog fight

I have been known to be wrong (it was once and I was 4) but I dont see this has a hard fight to pick.

Canelo will beat him easily.

This is the dude that outboxed Ward. I'm honestly dumbfounded that people are picking Canelo.

Is he the Kovalev or Ward 1 though? That Kovalev I'd make a very big favourite and Canelo wouldn't be considering the fight. Since then he's looked somewhat vulnerable to the body and his power doesn't seem to be what it once was. Add to that Kovalev isn't getting the decision unless he wins at least 9 rounds and it's easy to see why people are picking Canelo

If the Kovalev from the Alvarez ll fight shows up then I agree.
But do you think the Kovalev that showed up for the Yarde fight would've beaten Canelo that night?

Let's remind ourselves Mayweather shut Canelo out yet one judge scored it 114-114.

According to Kovalev and his team the fight is not official for November.
