pharochuck -Dory - Billy Joe is awesome. I expect him to outbox Alvarez. He'll probably get robbed of a decision though.
No one at 160-168 would outbox Canelo. He’s skill level is too high and he’s too sharp and accurate.
The guys at 147-154 though are big trouble for him. Floyd, and I thought Lara beat him. Trout gave him a lot of trouble and litle old Cotto fought him A LOT closer than the judges had it.
It's weird to say, but Canelo is one of the most overrated current fighters. But he is also underrated too in many ways. He has most definitely developed into a very slick defensive fighter. From the guy I watched on GBP undercards 10-12 years, he is a totally different fighter. I think he is somewhat limited on offense with extremely overrated power. His KO's are almost always against smaller fighters. Fielding is terribe and Kirkland has no defense and an even worse chin. And Kovalev? Completely washed up. He is not even remotely comparable now to the fighter that many think beat Andre Ward. And nobody will ever convience me otherwise that GGG is nothing but an overrated can crusher.
