Canelo is a front-runner who has no plan B. Even a shot James Kirkland hurt him! Shutting out a could care less Chavez and fighting Golovkin are two different things. Golovkin will borrow a page from the Mayweather book or at least try to do that. It will be a good fight. Golovkin has trouble with movers, but Canelo is no Jacobs or Monroe Golovkin will appear to win, (around 8-4) but they will score it a draw, because Golden Boy's "only cash cow." can't afford another loss.
Have to disagree with you on this one.
In no way is Canelo a front-runner, and he's proven this over the past 4 years. He doesn't gas out and let the other guy get off until he gets his second wind. He ceases the initiative throughout the fight and makes it known whose in control.
Even in the Lara fight, he proved that he belonged. He may have missed a lot of big shots and seemed slower, but Lara wasn't able to fully control the fight and retreated during the last half, not because of himself, but because of what was in front of him.
When did Kirkland hurt Canelo? I beg to differ on that point, but I do want to hear your side in detail. As we all know, the last thing that leaves a fighter is his power, and Kirkland has the ability to hurt anybody, shot or not.
Let's just hope that GGG can take a page out of Mayweather's book. I highly doubt it though, since he wasn't able to get rid of Jacobs a couple of months ago when he had the edge in power.
Canelo has more game than people are willing to give him credit for. He may not be the biggest mover, but he's versatile enough to keep his opponents honest.
The better question to ask is, who gives boxing a better look if they win? Both guy are foreigners and both have pretty big followings, but it's safe to say that Canelo has the bigger following. It all depends on who the judges like more on that night.
