    The question in my eyes is will Canelo have the power to get kovalevs respect considering he isn’t exactly a big power puncher at middleweight never mind light heavy. Mad respect for Canelo tho whatever happens as most people would baulk at this sort of challenge. Kovalev maybe be old and past prime but still is a world level fight with a big size advantage over canelo

    We all going to ignore the fact that Canelo is going to be juiced out of his head for this fight?

    Considering the punch that most troubled and landed on Canelo in his 2 fights with GGG was the jab, I think this is fight is a massive risk. I think Kova can beat him. Kova's still got good feet. Eleider Alvarez and Yarde couldn't land anything decent on him for 21 of 23 rounds. If Canelo comes in looking bulky he will most likely gas.

    No it’s the other way round, if kov wins he stays on espn if he loses he gets comeback fights on dazn.

    Agreed. GGG/Derev, Canelo/Kovalev, Prograis/Taylor, Inoue/Donaire, and Usyk's heavyweight debut is giving me some value back forsure. I misread the title anyways, Canelo is staying on DAZN regardless.

    If Canelo was a natural 175 or 168 lb fighter I'd agree. I haven't seen him hurt an A grader at 160 and at 168 Fielding was a roadkill. It'll be interesting to see if Canelo can get past those long range straights. I don't think a 175 Canelo will be as strong as Yarde and if he's too bulky he risks his stamina. I don't know why the odds are so long for this, I think it's a 50/50 fight.
