    I think Canelo is still improving, he’s honed his skills and seems to have found the perfect balance of doing enough to steal rounds by fighting for the last minute and a half of every round, he certainly starts very fast then fades in the middle and relies on that second wind to close out the rest of the fight. That being said, Jake’s going to bring the pressure for 12 hard rounds and can definitely take everything Canelo has to throw.

    I’d take Canelo in a close potentially controversial decision. He’d certainly take the majority of the early rounds, take a breather and wait for his second wind to pinch some close rounds towards the end.

    Canelo 7-5 is my verdict

    Canelos superior defense and reflexes likely makes him win a u.d. but I'm positive this fight goes the distance and would be competitive

    Canelo's biggest problem here is that he's not remotely close to Lamotta in class. Not a chance he beats him.
