    I want a refund. A huge reason why I bought a year worth of DAZN was because of Canelo and his long ass contract with DAZN. It's complete and utter bull**** if I don't get to watch Canelo on DAZN if he loses to Kovalev.

    You are safer than a hooker in church.
    Big Red going to “Krush” that body hard.

    Idk man, is there a rehydration clause? Kovalev is ****ing huge compared to Canelo. If there is no rehydration clause or catchweight, this is one of the best wins in recent times.

    Big Red is no pushover and the fact there are no restrictions makes it even more dangerous.

    Krusher has that KO jab and power where Big Red has that deadly body work and beautiful inside uppercut

    I think Big Red pulls off what Mikey Garcia thought he was going to do by calling out a bigger guy.

    Canelo has a better chance than Mikey just because Kovalev is older and a recovering alcoholic with 8 rounds max in the tank and hates body shots which is Canelo's bread and butter. But Kovalev mid-long range game is DAMN good, and if he prevents Canelo from getting on the inside with his range and power, it could be a long night for Canelo. Major respect to Canelo for taking this with no restrictions. That's shocking to me since he did not give anything up for Khan and forced the fight at 155 with no rehydration lol.

    Yo it is odd as FK to me and most REAL fans too. I think Canelo has became a much better fighter after his two encounters with GGG.

    I hope Big Red is eating dat good meat:eatingburger:coleman:

    See, I actually agree with everything you said except 2 things. Brook did not rock GGG more than Canelo did. He lifted him off his feet, but he wasn't really hurt. Other thing I disagree with is you bringing up the Ward like it's relevant to 2019. Let's be real, Kovalev is a recovering alcoholic whose stamina is far worse now than it was back then. I still favor Kovalev forsure if there is no re-hydration clause or catch weight. I'm shocked Canelo would take this fight. Oh and I know you hate Canelo but you have to give this dude major props for taking on the Krusher.

    What are you even talking about? First of all it's not even that. The rematch is agreed upon to be on DAZN, but it’s also stipulated that Bob Arum can block it (which is extremely important, of course). So, that means DAZN will have to pay a lot to Kovalev to keep everybody on his side (TR including) ok with the second fight being on DAZN as well.
    Second, even if Canelo fights on ESPN, that's only one fight.

    Canelo’s contract does not allow him to fight on other platforms unless it is due to losing a purse bid scenario. You are talking complete waffle.

    I misread the article title lol, my bad. I don't know why I thought "If Kovalev beats Canelo-He's back to ESPN no more DAZN", was referring to Canelo.

    That's right, but the complicated part begins if Canelo loses the first fight.

    I just read the title and my first assumption was that DAZN was ****ing me over :risas3: I just wanted something to be outraged about. Outrage culture is in right now max.
