Who do you think will win the May 7 showdown?

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?

HBO pumps up the fight with Harold Lederman, boxing judge and analyst.
In this interview Canelo said "Fighting big fights like this before definitely has given me a lot of experience and it helps you with the next big fight. Again I’ll repeat it; I’ve had some pretty big fights at only 25-years-old so all that helps when getting ready for a fight of this magnitude."
He is the underdog, but has a solid shot.
George Foreman knows what it is like to lose to an opponent because of speed. "The thing about power is you can become overconfident when you start seeing people drop....With Ali, I lost my fear. You come out not worrying about protecting yourself."
