    Current odds: Canelo to win : 1.2 Kovalev to win: 5.0

    In America it means: Canelo is -500 and Kovalev is +400.

    I understand that Canelo is in his prime and Kovalev is old, but still, a small 160 fighter against a 175 champion who just won by knock out against Yarde. I think it’s a 50-50 fight. Canelo is a bigger favourite now as Golovkin against Deveryachenko.

    Anyway we all have to give credit to Canelo for taking this fight.

    Kovalevs can't win on points and Ginger will try to last 12

    Ginger nuts has a granite chin with a good defence and Kov's power is on the wain. DLH will wheel in judges like Byrd Brain to ensure a "certain result". So Kov would have to ko ginger nuts and that looks fairly unlikely imho.

    I don't understand how bookies can price this properly without any details of catchweight/rehydration clause.

    +400 on Kovalev is too tempting to not throw down on. Kov is a much bigger ask than GGG or Jacobs at 160, if Canelo can't get past the jab this will end up looking like Spence-Garcia.

    So do we have a bet? You leave the forum forever if Canelo survives 6 rounds.
