    There are a plethora of different shoulder injuries and respective consequences.

    I agree with Jurgen in that George Groves never looked as bad as that. It was clear from the first round.

    This 100% Canelo has one of the best proven chins in the game and he's hard to hit clean.

    A prime plank ripe for a huge fall

    Canelo is a nightmare opponent and I'm not referencing his boxing ability, which is obviously top class. His chin is pure granite and no matter what happens in the ring, he gets the cards. Literally impossible to beat.

    Spot on, can’t get knocked out and can’t get beat on the cards - almost makes his fights boring in a way.

    As if that wasn't enough he's also a proven drug cheat.

    A fight I'm looking forward to and think Canelo wins in good fashion. John Ryder is supposedly in a good fight on the undercard as well. Lemieux and Chudinov were the names mentioned previously.

    I’d like to see Ryder vs Lemieux. Does a number on him and it sets up a big fight for him, whether that’s Canelo or Saunders.

    Callum Smith and Joe G had no clue they were fighting Canelo 2 weeks ago, Smith was convinced he was stuck in a legal battle with DAZN. I have no doubt Smith has been training but not with Canelo in mind for the next fight. It's a 4 week camp for Smith and Joe G

    Smith says 'Canelo has been training so he looks like he knows he's fighting but ive heard he has a court case and will be out until next year'. He also confirms he needs a "full training camp to keep my body active so I have a goal to work for" and that he would take a domestic tick over until a big fight next year "if necessary".

    Surely these boys cannot be that much out of the loop. Looks like a stitch up from team Canelo.

    I know boxing isn't about height but Canelo is really 5' 7ish and smith is legit 6'3. I mean thats some height difference, so like if you were an average 5'9 guy could you imagine losing to someone 5'1? That would be embarrassing!

    He’s going to look very small in height compared to Callum that’s for sure. Will be a pain trying to land on someone who’s so low and got upper body movement and defence like Canelo.

    I think the stare down in the presser will look similar to when Price fought Povetkin. It looked silly and a total mismatch on the eye but the reality was that the shorter fella was levels above and packed a punch.

    I’ve been pro Callum his whole career but can’t really make an argument for him winning here. Canelo’s work rate, power, chin, movement, speed, everything is just superior. That’s no disrespect to Smith as I’d say the same about Canelo vs any middle or super middle. He’s an elite talent who always stacks everything possible in his favour. It’s very hard to defeat. I bet that 1 on his record eats at him. Jumped in with Floyd far too green.
