    Round 1 Castro 10-9
    Round 2 Castro 10-9

    Castro punched himself out in the first round, but still outworked him by a mile in the second.

    They are stepping up pretty fast,
    Not as fast as lomachenko, but still relatively quickly

    Castro looks a lot more polished and sharper than Keyshawn. Gets hit far too easy though

    Round 1 Castro 10-9
    Round 2 Castro 10-9
    Round 3 Castro 10-9

    Far less output. Castro is a violent KO waiting to happen.

    Yeah, Castro isn't impressive at all.

    Keyshawn is lacking output and combination punching while castro lacks punching power and his defense is falling apart as the rounds go by.

    Round 1 Castro 10-9
    Round 2 Castro 10-9
    Round 3 Castro 10-9
    Round 4 Castro wins by TKO

    More of the same. Castro clubbing him, until teh ref steps in, way early. But good call. Castillo had no chance.

    Castro's teeth remind me of Gnasher from Dennis the Menace :

    Scouring the webs I’m pretty shocked how many people think Saunders will win. They just seem so rooted on what Lara and Floyd did many yrs ago. Canelo isn’t that guy anymore. It just feels like lazy analysis. Saunders doesn’t hit nearly hard enough to deter Canelo from walking him down all night. The greatest improvement Canelo has made in recent years, besides head movement, is his ability wall off the ring and get his shots in. His persistent forward movement sways judges as much as the money he has behind him.

    I don't like Chris Algieri, he's a shill with no persona.

    Bucking the trend here, I'm impressed with Castro after feeling like his first outing was lackluster. That guy he was in with is a serious step up this early, >50% KO rate is a real risk and he battered him from start to finish.

    Canelo isn't 2013 Canelo and BJS isn't 2013 Lara. That's why I'm confident in the win but I do think BJS will test him.
