    Seems either like he's trying to act like he has to put on weight to enter the ring at 175, but everyone following boxing knows that's a lot of bull, or he's saying he's going to put on so much weight that he has to severely cut weight to even make 175.

    I like his comments on how he will eat himself into the new weight class, just some carbs and more protein.... sure ;) I guess he ate all the cows he needed before this shortened testing period.

    I really have to wonder if he ever see's 160lbs again??

    Once a guy has a taste of cutting 15lbs or so to comfortably make weight at 175lbs.....it's a real ***** cutting 30lbs to make 160

    So he plans on going into the ring carrying more weight than he likely has ever carried into a 12 round fight, against a bigger man that is adept at boxing on the front or backfoot, and has murderous (literally) power. This all combined with the fact that even in prime shape, he has stamina issues and has no clue how the excess weight will slow him down..................

    Kovalev over Canelo by TKO.

    I will bust a nut if that happens :D

    But I will give Canelo his due, he has an excellent team behind him and he's always ticking like a Rolex come fight night. Kovalev better be taking him as seriously as a heart attack.

    Once he tastes Beterbeiv's power, if he beats Kovalev, he'll be roiding as much as humanly possible to get back down to 160

    I feel sorry for the Mexican kids who will have to go without their burgers as Clenelo hogs all the cattle.

    Canelo has an IRON chin but I worry about him being hit by even this older, slower, slightly shop worn Krusher.

    I am not sure what strategy he has in mind, as he is a counter puncher, to finally cut the range of Krusher to land his beautiful inside body and uppercut work.

    At first I was on board that Big Red would stop Krusher but then I read the well thought out breakdown from @CST80 and I’m scratching my head as to how Canelo can pull this one off.

    I am no fanboy of either guy I just love boxing and this is no Spence VS Mikey move up fight this is Canelo taking the biggest challenge in boxing next to when B Jack fought Super Pimp.

    Any word on Super Pimp? Have not seen any updates on the guy in some time.
