    Three of the judges only gave Jacobs 2 rounds in the first 8

    One of the judges only gave Kovalev 2 rounds in the first 8

    Etc. Etc.

    Tell me, how would you approach a fight knowing you can't win on the cards against an elite fighter who has the luxury to methodically load up on bombs knowing he has a safety net?

    Callum Smith and Liam smith found a way. Absolute warriors the pair of them. BJS had it all his own way pre-fight. You could have sworn it was set up for him to win.

    Im not sure plant is durable enough or has the power to keep him off but i do think plants timing in underrated. I thought the same about uzcatchagui and that was a blow out fight. Canelo has a major experience, power, and durability advantage. See if plant can keep from getting hit.

    I think he is faster then Saunders
    He Will Definitely have major height & reach advantages.

    we’ll see if he can actually utilize them better the Callum Smith did.

    Faster, sharper, better footwok, better defense. Cant wait.

    Oh okay, fair enough. I was asking for clarification, as I don't understand what your answer actually means in the context of their fights and my original question.

    That's a fair approach.
    But for example, I don't think Smith and Kovalev were fighting smart by taking it on short notice. Though Smith certainly fought smart in the sense that he lasted 12 rounds.
    Should they come to win? And if so what is the route to victory? Stoppage only?

    He was being outboxed but Saunders was never going to win on the cards. Canelo can really punch one shot destroyed Billy’s face.
