Canelo vs Kovalev Betting Odds


The No. 3-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world, Saul”Canelo” Alvarez, has chosen to make a major jump for his second operation, moving to light to take on WBO champion Sergey”Krusher” Kovalev on November 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Canelo has started as a favorite with Kovalev coming back in +325 despite tacking 15 lbs from his last departure.
I’m quite surprised to see that the odds in favour of this WBA, WBC and??lineal middleweight winner given??the fact he is skipping two weight classes. This line is almost equal to the last struggle with Daniel Jacobs of Canelo when??the Mexico native won via conclusion and shut as a -500 chosen.
This is not the first time we have seen Canelo leap a weight course to collide with a top talent talent as his middleweight debut came against Gennady Golovkin at 2017, a struggle that ended in a draw. Last December, Alvarez fought Rocky Fielding at super middleweight (168 lbs ) and ceased the Brit in the third round by body shots.
Krusher Kovalev had been an underdog at February from the rematch from Eleider Alvarez for the WBO heavyweight title. The Russia native fell to Alvarez (perhaps not Canelo) in August of this past season by seventh-round TKO but avenged that loss with a unanimous-decision victory earlier this year. Ahead of this February bout, the other instances he had been still an underdog in memory arrived in the rematch in 2017 and 2016, to Andre Ward.
A real bout here as we did watch Canelo fight at middleweight and he displayed excellent power to Fielding’s own body with devastating blows, but now we are adding yet another seven pounds into the mixture. Canelo might have to maintain his speed with the weight he’ll be doing out to capitalize on his own counter-striking.
You do not get nicknamed Krusher and that is exactly what you get with Kovalev. Of his 34 pro wins, 29 have come by knockout. The Russian will have a tendency to absorb a lot of strikes in his struggles and doesn’t have any problem eating shouts to close the space and allow his heavy hands fly like Canelo against a opponent.
This should be a very intriguing and enjoyable struggle. How I see it, even if Canelo would like to win, ” he stays on the exterior, with his elusiveness??and counters to get in, hit on the body and get outside to win a determination,??while Kovalev will wish to corner the Mexico native and set him into sleep.
Prediction: Canelo Alvarez (-450) via conclusion
