  1. i bet on Nadal to win the tourny today at 4/5. After having watched a little of him yesterday, i was surprised at they odds, i was expecting closer to 1/2.
  2. His power is very good. Take Lopez for instance, Victor Ortiz hit Lopez with everything he had and couldn't budge him. Couple of months later, Canelo slapped him around the ring like a man beating his wife. For me, that's an indication of the power difference between Victor Ortiz, who is touted as one of the biggest hitters at 147 & Canelo. The only fighter who Floyd has faced that is a bigger hitter is maybe Mosley who hurt him in round 2, but he was well past it. Chop-chop was ab ig hitter but that was 140, this is 154. Canelo is pretty fast, not as fast as Floyd but still has decent hand speed, and is a pretty heavy-handed combo puncher. imo there's a couple ways to beat Floyd. Castillo beat him, and a rangey outside fighter is probably the best suited to the job, in a boring fight. Paul Williams for example, at 147, if he opted to just jab and move, could outpoint him. Canelo & Pacquiao is the other way, they are both technically inferior, but explosive enough to stop anyone in their weight classes. I think Canelo needs a big punch, he's good enough to find it, like i say though, the catchweight is a curveball if Canelo looks fucked.
  3. Alvarez won't, he believes he's a boxing purist. He boxed very well vs Trout but alot of defensive stuff & head movement that he done was just for show. A bit like a footballer doing pointless step-overs. I was convinced if the fight happened that Alvarez would knock Floyd out. His power is outstanding at 154 and he has the skills to get the shots home & cut off the ring (nearly all his opponents have resorted to running). The catchweight however is making me hesitant to pick Canelo. He had a catchweight of 150 for Matthew Hatton and couldn't get down below 151.5 and that was about 3 years ago. He's 23 and filling out, i was already starting to think 154 was getting to much and he needed to move to middleweight at 160. Alot of people have been critical of his stamina in his last couple of fights, which again i think is to do with the amount of dehydrating & draining he's doing to reach 154. With catchweights you can never tell if they have an effect or not until the guy gets between the ropes, but it could ruin a great fight if Canelo has weight & hydration issues from the start from boiling down to 152.
