    I didn’t realize that it got postponed. I am also picking Smith. I think he gets to Alvarez.

    It was originally scheduled for the 16th of July before Alvarez suffered a shoulder injury.

    I think Alvarez will be able to withstand Smiths power and avoid getting caught clean to take a clear decision.

    I’ve just never been high on Alvarez. He caught a shot Kovalev but was losing up until then and then got beat easily by a shot Kovalev. Before and after those fights I haven’t been impressed either.

    Smith is by no means great, but he has shown that his power is fight changing and I think that Alvarez will quickly fight hesitant and lose because of it.

    This really does have fun fight written all over it. I like the pop and pressure from Joe as a fighter and at times Alvarez seems 36 going on 46. But I have to lean towards Alvarez who looked good dissecting an admittingly green Seals last out. Kovalev got him but have to think he'll be the technical boxer this time around vs the onrushing Smith. Then again Smith is an ever present danger from opening to close and still has the massive brass he showed fighting on with a broken jaw a few years ago. I'll change my mind in the morning

    Definitely feels like their styles will gel, which will now have the opposite effect and be a shit fight

    Think I'm edging towards Alvarez for the victory, possibly by stoppage, but it really wouldn't be a surprise if Smith got him out of there either.

    Smiths power can turn the tide at any stage but I think Alvarez will be weary of it and will fight very defensively.

    Looks like this is ESPN+ rather than reg channel . I will say this it streams ten times quicker and cleaner than DAZN, at least locally.

    No idea what's up with the FOX card? Showing a 11pm start time here on FS1..but just stumbled into the Fundora vs Gallimore result. Local FOX here is re airing the Saints super bowl win from 2010. What the fark is going on.

    I quite like this 8-3-2 Clay Collard who has been on a run of beating up undefeated guys since boxing 'returned'. Type of guy who knows his level but is getting a mini story out of it. A regular dude went from being homeless to mma then boxing. Pretty awkward style, not Hamed awkward but still unique and far skilled above his numbers.

    Julian Hammer hands Rodriquez annihilates 13-0 Anthony Laureano in the 1st. Then looks at him greatly disappointed. He's got a point ya know

    Joe loading up on absolutely everything. Bit sloppy slappy but bulling in. Alvarez uses that shoulder block rush to offset him then winds counter, better than any jab.

    Series of 5 Smith left hooks up and down, blocked a bit but he moves Alvarez. Joe looks like he trains old school Foreman style..flip those tires, drag that car down the road. Alvarez long way to go keeping this defense
