by David P. Greisman

Ronnie Shields (Alvarez): “I don’t think Josesito Lopez really deserved this fight. There’s so many 154-pounders in the world today that deserved to fight this guy, Canelo Alvarez. I think a lot of people are probably upset about this, because this guy is really a 140-pounder. But the kid has lots of heart, as you saw in the Victor Ortiz fight. But again, Ortiz was only a welterweight. Now he’s moving up divisions to face Canelo Alvarez.

“I think all the pressure’s going to be on Alvarez because he knows that everyone knows that this is a smaller guy. I think he has to look impressive, and I think he will, because Canelo’s a very good fighter despite people thinking he’s not fighting the top 154-pounders out there. Despite all that, he’s a really good fighter, and I’m going to say Canelo Alvarez by knockout by the sixth round.”

Eddie Mustafa Muhammad (Alvarez): “Canelo is too strong for him. He’s going to put the pressure with body shots. He’s going to find out that Josesito can’t hurt him, and he’s going to go right to him. Canelo by stoppage. Lopez doesn’t have anything, moving up to the next weight, to really hurt Canelo, to have the firepower. He can’t match Canelo’s firepower.”

Sam Garcia (Alvarez): “I got Canelo big by knockout. I’m going to take him in seven or eight. I think Lopez will be game. He’ll be tough, just like he always is in every single fight. But I think Canelo is the next level. I really do. I think he’s the real deal at 154. I think he can compete against the best in the world right now, let alone in two or three years. He’s just really developed into a really good fighter. I’m big on Canelo in this one.”

John Scully (Alvarez): “I have to go with Canelo. I just think he’s too big, too strong has too much momentum going his way right now. I’ll take him in a unanimous 12-round decision in a fight that definitely has its crackling moments.”

At the end of the fight this 4 trainers prediction will all be wrong, upset will prevail, lopez would win by another k.o., a new superstar is born.......

I agree with Shields Canelo is to big and strong for Lopez but his lack of killer instinct will stop him from winning by KO Canelo 9-3 UD

Was it really even necessary to write an article stating the obvious??:dunno:

As easy a prediction to make as there exists in the world. Unfortunately Lopez will find out tonight that his Rocky moment has ended. I still want to see more of him in the future, and if he at least impresses with his toughness again, we probably will. Canelo by KO in the mid-late rounds.
