    AJ has a better chance, not a lot though.

    I actually think Bivol could have punished Clenelo more later in the fight. He was cautious. I think he could have got Clenelo out of there.

    I’d have to go with Joshua, even though I predicted Usyk KO pre fight for fight 1. Alvarez doesn’t have the feet to compete with Bivol.

    Alvarez problem wasn't just his feet, Plant moved more than Bivol.

    They’re both in a similar position where they were soundly beat and the guy that beat them looked like they had another few levels to go through. Joshua got the tactics all wrong but I think Usyk beats him no matter what tactics he comes with. Canelo can be better but he only every really fights one way and Bivol has shown he can deal with that.

    I think Joshua gets stopped in the rematch and Canelo would lose on points again. We have to see how Usyk looks after the war though…

    With current judging Canelo needs only one more round to at least draw.
    Canelo did a weak performance. No combinaisons, and the jab did not work well. When Bivol was inside his shell Canelo should have create more openings instead of trying to make love with Bivols arm. I don't see Canelo doing worse. Bivol will once again have to stay disciplined but a bit more active if he wants to win the rematch.

    They each have a 20% chance of winning their rematch. So equally unlikely.

    That says a lot, if Canelo came that close to beating Bivol with a "weak" performance, then imagine what would happen if Canelo gave a better performance, he'd be very capable of getting the win. If they fought at 168, for example, I think you'd have to favor Canelo.

    Joshua fought like he was scared of getting hurt early and embarrassed rather than how he should have been fighting to win. I think if the fight goes past the 8th round there's pretty much no chance he wins, if he comes out throwing to hurt and end the fight early there is the risk he will himself be knocked out early, but it's also his best chance of winning. So there's an easy change to his game plan he can make to give himself a better chance of winning a rematch.

    Canelo needs to throw more, muddy the waters, give the judges something to work with, and hope Bivol doesn't press the issue and does just enough to reasonably win, and becomes an unwitting accomplice to his own robbery.

    Juicy J just needs to be a big man and use his strength and power and he has a great chance.
    Canelo not so much lol.

    The answer is obviously Joshua

    Maybe P4P but Juicy J is twice the size of Usyk and Canelo is a small man compared to Bivol lol

    Joshua has a better chance.

    A HW always has at least a puncher's chance.

    Yeah but I don’t calculate distance in km when watching a fight. It’s a game of inches with Bivol and Canelo has cement blocks on his feet in comparison.

    Joshua needs to cut off the ring and try to land something with his right hand. Problem is he is very vulnerable to counter punches, particularly hooks and he has a glass jaw.

    The judges already had the fight closer than it should have been between Bivol and Canelo.
