    Kalambay schools Canelo but Canelo get's a SD "win".

    I'm still laughing at this match up- Sumbu would box Canelo silly and EASILY.

    Alvarez's economical footwork would be too overwhelming for Kalambay, who did not do well against economical mover types or judiciously frenetic plodder swarmer ambush pressure artists.

    I picked Canelo by decision because this fight definitely goes the distance, & we know he ain't losing on no scorecards.

    Kalambay comes in after a surprise 3 week camp and fights bravely in Vegas en route to a UD loss where one judge has it Canelo winning 11 rounds to 1.

    In a fair fight it's much closer but I think Canelo might edge him.

    Kalambay wins almost every round but loses a tight decision.

    Newsflash: If Canelo's career goes on like this, he will be considered historically far greater than Kalambay and that's from somebody who would like nothing more than to see ginger get his face smashed in. A person like you is simply too dim to see it.

    So the battle of the cute fighters where one guy has a single loss compared to the other guy's multiple losses. Where one guy is heavier handed, sturdier chinned and comes in jacked on every drug money can hide? Yeah, I'll take THAT guy.

    I'd rather just take the better fighter tbh

    And it isn't the one who should losses to Trout and Lara

    Dude, Steve Collins was roughing Sumbu up. No way in hell a wildman like that does the same to Canelo
