    A lot of logic to that but Ray took big shots from Hearns, his chin was solid, Canelo`s power is a little bit overrated.

    What did you think of Canelo`s performance overrall, who do you think will win the rematch?

    I give Canelo a C and Bivol a B+.

    Canelo needed to turn it up in the last four rounds and take about three to deserve a win.

    Bivol did all the right things in the second half of his fight, but can improve on his performance if he sits on his punches earlier in the fight.

    Canelo should come in at around 170 and not look for a knockout. The rematch should be very competitive. Bivol should be a slight favorite.

    Canelo isn`t a boxer he always tries to take fighters out with one shot, his camp don`t train him to jab and box it`s all about power.

    Yep, Bivol almost dug his own grave controlling the action and scoring points to give away those first 4 rounds - pure folly - just like Hags v Leonard all those years ago.

    Just as well Dmitry “woke”’up to himself and put the pedal to the metal to pull it out over the home stretch.

    Now I just need to remove my tongue which has become firmly implanted in my cheek.

    He’s a pressure counter puncher.

    Mod-Mania I agree about Leonard. Ray could take his best and still outbox him

    Sugar Ray Leonard would have been too fast for Canelo Alvarez, Roberto Duran would have been too rough, and Marvelous Marvin Hagler would have been too slick and rough.

    I see you've cheated and watched this fight with both eyes open.

    If we put them at 154 and take the version of Leonard that beat Kalule against the Canelo that lost to Mayweather then it's Leonard all day. The older less potent version of Leonard that fought Hagler at 160 would be more of a two way street as Canelo IMO was around his best when he fought GGG at 160.

    Canelo should match Mugabi at 154, Roldan 160, Collins 168, Prince Williams at 175 . this is more winnable suited match

    I think he beats Mugabi late by TKO, Roldan would be a struggle but Canelo would eventually stop Roldan who might trouble him, but not win. Collins? I see Canelo edging him in a great fight, and Prince Charles? I am not sure Canelo wants that.. Prince Charles was a pressure fighter and strong and was solid at 175..
