    Mungia def is hungrier and younger ,throws more volume than an almost 34 yo canelo, wouldn't be surprised if the fight ends up being more competitive than some would think. On paper it seems like an all action scrap, hopefully it will.

      I think I mentioned this in another thread but for some reason this fight reminds me of the James Kirkland - Canelo fight. Kirkland being this raw power puncher with a fragile chin. Granted, we don't know how well Munguia's chin is exactly in comparison, but it can be an early night. With all the throwing of punches from Munguia opens up plenty of counter punching opportunity for Canelo. He'll more than likely play right into Canelo's hands.

        Yep, he might just get old in the ring right before our eyes. You'd think there would be some leaks from training camp to telegraph that.

          Everybody looks bad against Derevyanchenko, so I wouldn’t hold that against Munguia. A much bigger problem is that Alvarez is extremely difficult to hit clean, and even when it happens, he’s got a head like an engine block. He appears to be one of those guys who can’t be knocked out by anyone near his weight class.

          Everybody remembers Canelo’s corner telling him not to try to knock out GGG. “He’s too strong!” Munguia’s corner better be telling him the same thing. Bivol showed the recipe for beating Canelo, and it’s not sledgehammer power. GGG had that, scored a few thunder shots, and Canelo survived them easily. Bivol’s approach was ultra high energy, lots of in and out, constant motion, hyperactive footwork, flurries when the opportunity arises, and keep after that with marathon stamina for 12 rounds. Canelo’s overly muscled-up physique tires more quickly than a fighter who never found the chemical secret to huge muscle mass. If Munguia thinks he can swarm Canelo with power shots and get a knockout, he will end up with a broken orbital bone. You cannot maul this man. Too tough and skilled for that.
          I see what you did there, bro.
