if it happens how do you see it playing out?
rematch clause they have 52 more days to submit it.
Their fight was the opposite of a fluke.
Alvarez by later round stoppage/TKO around 8-10 but he wont knock Sergey off his feet this time. Just have him hurt and leaning against the ropes catching bombs until the ref jumps in to stop it.
Kov by UD
You're joking right?
Kov was winning he got caught it happens
I thought the fight was pretty even and had it scored as such. But I've seen your opinion from a few different posters that I very much respect their opinions so I can't see Kovalev winning before the KO that strange. Still it wasn't so clear cut, Kellerman might be Satan around here but I believe how he had it was much closer on the nose then how Harold had it.
The score was not as wide as Horld Letherman had it, it was a very close fight. Letherman need to retire.
So you're expecting Kovalev to improve his endurance in the rematch I assume.
Mind you this is the 3rd fight where Kovalev has gassed in a championship fight.
I think you should consider these variables in the rematch
1.Kovalev will be older.
2.Alvarez will be confident knowing that Kovalev's chin isn't exactly granite.
3.Kovalev will definitely gas
4.Kovalev will be unsure of himself (its had to comeback from that type of KO)
Alvarez has his number.
He showed he could take Kovalev's best shots and drag him through the second half of the fight when SK slows down.
The rematch would end in a similar fashion to the first.
Kovalev will get stopped again if he doesn't do something about his defense. No elite fighter is going to let Kovalev get away with leaving his body wide open round after round. Kovalev also needs to work on his conditioning since he getS arm weary too quick and also stands too straight up. The first Ward fight should've been a wakeup call for Kovalev that he needed to work on a few things, since Alvarez went right to work on Kovalev's body and was landing overhand rights almost at will.
Beterbiev beats both.
Alvarez by KO within 4 rounds.
With the Ward TKO loss, he had a built in excuse, and a somewhat legitimate one, he could explain it away in his mind, therefore allowing himself to not have to correct his flaws. This TKO was all on him, and therefore probably the huge wake up call, and the kick in the ass that he sorely needed. He'll finally get his stamina issues worked out, he'll be more cognizant of the straight right, and win via close UD.
He'll win by KO within 3 (possible) or he'll lose again by stoppage or decision (more likely).
Well, if he does finally get his **** together, winning by KO in 3 is definitely possible. Also the success Alvarez was having is being vastly overblown, the first 3 were toss up 50/50 type rounds, Kovalev then took over, I doubt if he gets the proper momentum he'll let it slip from his hands that easily.
