    Canelo by decision. I’m gonna root for Saunders and he’ll put up a good fight but I think Canelo wins a deserved decision. If it goes to decision Canelo wins either way

    Not all decisions he had get were suspicious, f.e vs this Callum I think he won fair.

    I think Canelo will win by liver shot ko probably late, but maybe early. Billy hasn't been as active as Saul as of late and it may show early.

    I've said for years Saunders was his nightmare opponent, my opinion has not changed. Will he get the nod? Oddly enough, I think he might just be able to do enough to pull it off. So I'm not only going with Saunders, but Saunders by UD. He's got a fire lit under his ass, you can see it in his eyes and he won't be denied.

    Saunders lacks the power to really put a dent in Canelo. BJ has that awkward movement but will end up getting walked down. Canelo Is just too well rounded these days and has a chin. Don't see BJ scoring too many points without feeling the counter punch back most of the time. If I'm wrong I'll happily eat my words Sunday morning but I really don't see it

    Pretty fair and honest. Do you will recognize, give props, if not, e.g. convincing victory, to Canelo?
    To bold statement, bold props to rival

    People keep bringing up the Lara fight so I watched it again and it wasn't close… I dislike alvaroid but he won that fight clearly, Lara had nothing on his shots and spent 12 rounds back-pedalling.. Canelo is freakishly durable & strong, he's excellent at closing distance & he's a sharp spiteful puncher, Saunders needs the performance of his life here to make this competitive, i'd love him to do it but but the Mexican is juiced to high heaven & just too good at the minute ultimately.. if you're not named Golovkin or Mayweather you just spend most of the fight trying to keep him off you let alone getting any offense off on him.. Saunders looked really sharp against Murray and technically he is really good… Slick, quick & mentally tough too but the gulf in competition depth is vast here & you just never know which Saunders you are going to get… Gypsies are proud people and a knockout loss would hurt his ego here, so I think he'll show up in form & give a smart account of himself but I just can't see a Saunders win

    Some of the takes on here are down right shameful Canelo is about to demolish this boy, and y’all gonna be sad still because the biggest hope Saunders is gonna get wrecked
