    Once again I know nothing about a Canelo opponent but reading the comments it seems a few give him a chance. Surprises me

    Still won't be watching but will get to early to catch it on YouTube.

    Everyone's weighing in on Canelo's latest opponents and so will I.

    Beginning with Kovalev, who inexplicably fought like a deer in headlights until Canelo put him out of his misery. The type of fight that raises eyebrows, although I tend to dismiss claims of shady dealings behind the scenes for the good of my love of boxing.

    Callum was another one. Gave away all his physical advantages and dutifully stood there, taking his beating. After Callum, I was having serious doubts.

    Let's skip Yildirim, shall we.

    Saunders finally restored my faith in Canelo's opponents. He fought well, maybe even well enough to be on his way to a decision win geez... WTF am I saying?? Must've had a brain freeze there. There is no such thing as a decision win over Canelo. That animal succumbed to extinction many years ago. Unfortunately, one uppercut from a man who started his career at super welter, and all hell broke loose in Sanders' face. Hmm... Ok.

    Finally, Plant. Good effort... not the talent everyone had him pegged as. Of course, 168 isn't exactly the premier division in boxing, so there's that.




    Which brings us to Bivol. But as has been mentioned here. Not content with having Bivol in front of him, there's all kinds of B.S. legacy-building talk about facing Usyk. After all, it's been clear since Day One that the ultimate goal of the Canelo Hype-Building Machine is to place Canelo atop boxing history as TBE. And I must say... it's been a well thought out, constructed, methodical but careful march toward that goal. With a glitch maybe when they bit off more than they could chew when they demanded and got Floyd... but well carried out nonetheless. Even that glitch was almost erased by one judge. Maybe if CJ had had a twin sister... history would now be different. But alas... the other two judges didn't get the memo.

    I too, think Bivol should win this fight. I applaud that there are no catchweights or diva demands as with all other Canelo fights. But there is that one lurking factor that keeps me from being overconfident in Bivol.

    I keep thinking about Kovalev and Callum.

    I think Bivol is basic and Canelo makes this easy. Hope I’m wrong.

    How amazing is it that Floyd whitewashed this guy and make him look impotent? And made Manny look impotent. And..

    Whitewashed?

    I think you are getting confused with Ricky Hatton.

    It was a clear win for Floyd but nowhere near a Whitewash (whatever that means). Watch that fight again. Canelo Lacked the skill to beat the P4P best in the world at the age of 22 and rightly so.

    Even if Bovol wins tonight you cant write off the Mexican. He has acheived more than most fighters in history.

    I understand if you just dont like him for whatever reason but lets be fair. Your Bias is obvious.

    Have to hope Dazn revamps this 'ppv' format going forward. Annual subscribers for 4 years still paying over $60 compared to none subs at $80 for this isn't good faith or business imo. You can buy on regular cable ppv too, didn't even realize that.

    I agree this is a great act of treachery from dazn.... At least they still show the Belgian league not on ppv ....

    Feels like obvious double dipping, a 'work' by them. All the talk of the app the app, turns out you don't need it tonight..use old cable so they figure why give long app subs a break. All the money still goes to them. Almost like they know the formats a bust, at least here.

    Well sure, if you put in loads of things I didn’t say. I never said anything about writing Canelo off. Just a really poor post. Do better

    How many rounds did you give Canelo against Floyd?

    Dazn is nearing a cancellation from me, i wanted them to succeed and it was good value in n Canada with all the football it had on but they're losing a fair bit of stuff now and the price is up and now ppvs! Shocking, they do have snooker though


    I like the ample bossumed models they've brought into the first row so they can look at their phones ....maybe they're the judges, that might explain some scorecards

    Pretty nice uppercut by the smiling Uzbek to knock down Guadalajaran Gomez, looked like he could of had him out of there then he lets Gomez land a nice whack on him and the Uzbek is Hurt and holding to end the round.

    Quality round 7 Shakhram Giyasov and Gomez. Gomez dropped but managed come back to hurt Wonder Boy before the bell.

    May actually have early kick off to main event . Montana Love fighting next and that's it! If they don't streeeeetch taking the ring for two hours. Can't have Canelo waiting on another couch for a uFc ppv card to finish .

    This fight is pretty fun, giyasov takes another big hit, an uppercut this time, he survived though but this Gomez fellow keeps coming.
