Anyone that thinks lara has any chance at all is out of their freaking mind.


Utter mismatch here.
Canelo by ko once first left hook cleanly lands. Lara might get up but it's really already over

Feather fisted Canelo?
Malignaggi has more pop then Canelo.

Canelo is getting a boxing lesson!

It is going to be a repeat of the Mayweather fight. Canelo is a medicore boxer with good power. He is not a dog like Angulo, he is very patient and methodical.

Lara is the better boxer. End of story. Unless Canelo completely changes his style he is in big trouble tonight!

Unfortunately I don't think Canelo has the heart to do that!

I agree, taking a size able risk if he changes style and pressures.

You may as well tell us what the real number is. It is somewhere between 100 and 999 dollars. A thousand bucks would be sucky to lose but not the end of the world.

I did lose betting on Lara. It was an underdog pick that I can't expect to win every time. I still think there was good value in it, as well as my bet on the draw.

Thanks to everyone for making it an interesting thread.

It turned out to be a good bout, both guys imposing their styles back and fourth with little in between. When Canelo began landing solid body shots in the 4th, I had a bad feeling Lara would slow down, and he did. The 117-111 card was unfortunate, but expected.

Damn, I'm good. One judge had his score-card filled out and just sat there to watch the fight .
