Really rate Kovalev, unlucky in the first Ward fight tbh. He's been in too many wars though. Ward x 2, Álvarez x 2 and even Yarde had him hurt in the 8th. Despite the fact that Yarde was getting comfortably outboxed for large periods of the fight.

I want a Kovalev victory, but it's a real toss up. I wonder how Canelo will take the weight. Triple G can bang, but Kovalev is an absolutely different beast entirely. I don't consider the height to be a major problem for Canelo; especially with his linear movement. Perhaps even an advantage, tbh.

It's Kovalevs footwork and foot speed coupled with his jab that could really cause Canelo some issues. A few years back and I think Kovalev stops him. Not so sure either way now.
