Canelo Alvarez is one of the best fighters in the sport today, but he can really cement his place among the greats with a championship at his fourth division if he wins against Sergey Kovalev. He definitely has the talent to do it.

He's already outlasted one of the heaviest hitters in boxing when he beat Gennady Golovkin. He also knocked out Rocky Fielding and beat Daniel Jacobs via unanimous decision. That kind of momentum and confidence will serve him well against Kovalev.

This is his match to lose.

Alvarez may have dominated the middleweight division, but jumping up two divisions is not an easy task. A smaller guy moving up like that is bound to be at a disadvantage against a champion who has fought in the division his entire professional career.

Kovalev has power that Alvarez has never had to deal with. He is going to punish the Mexican fighter with viciousness and make Alvarez regret moving up that far in weight.

The Russian is going to destroy Alvarez.
