Who do you think will win the May 7 showdown? | The Tylt
This Sunday is a boxing event the world is waiting for. Canelo Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) is Mexico's boxing pride. The WBC middleweight champion is known for his hard punches and fearless boxing style. His only loss was a respectable 12-round majority decision against Floyd Mayweather. He is only 25-years-old, but has taken the boxing world by storm and has more experience than many get in a lifetime.
Amir Khan (31-3, 19 KOs) is the underdog. Training out of San Francisco, but representing England, Khan is going to rely on his speed and boxing prowess against the stronger Alvarez. He is an Olympic medalist and won the unified WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles. He's recently moved up to the middleweight and says being the underdog only fuels him to train harder. Khan is known for a quick jab and lighting combos.
In a blow-by-blow ESPN gave Alvarez the advantage in strength, experience, durability, stamina, versatility, defense and current form. They gave Khan the upper hand in speed, tenacity, technique, the corner, and a wild card since "we still haven't seen the very best of Khan yet in a single fight." Khan, after all, has everything to win.
So who do you think will win?
