How do you British fans see this fight playing out?
I like Canelo to catch Benn coming in quite a bit, but having some rocky patches himself. You never know with Benn’s equaliser, especially when hurt or even on the way down (!), but I’d go with Canelo to grind him down with technical prowess and punch picking to stop him late.
At 168? I'd favor Alvarez. His head movement is brilliant at times and Benns rolling, lunging attacks might not land with enough frequency to allow him to build pressure and Alvarez is a great puncher and on a good run of stopping unbeaten by fighters at the moment. Benn although far from glass chinned could be hit and hurt.
Alvarez by late stoppage.
Read that as Connor Benn at first and nearly lost my drink!
At 168, Canelo does Benn in. In fact at any weight. Too much in his toolbox i think.
Loved Nigel but Canelo would be too good and too cute for him.
Benn would be too vulnerable against someone as clever Canelo, he would stop Benn in six.
Benn smashes him to pieces.
Ginge doesnt beat conor never mind nigel
Probably Canelo but you never know with Benn. Canelo has a great chin but Benn hits him harder than he’s ever been hit before
As for Nigel; ironically the lesser crude 80s Middleweight version of Benn probably has a better chance, than the more refined, technically superior Benn of the Super Middles in the early/mid 90s.
A Middleweight fight would probably be real fun, but in both scenarios I go for Alvarez.
Canelo has not fought any body like Benn. This is his wake up call
Canelo is a level above.
Canelo by mid late stoppage.
Conor doesn't even get out of his bed for that fight
Canelo. Nigel is in his late 50's now.
