CANELO ALVAREZ v AMIR KHAN: BETTING PREVIEW
Saul Alvarez (46-1-1 32KO’s) won his championship from Miguel Cotto over 12 rounds in September and he is on a four-fight win streak since his only career loss to Floyd Mayweather. The Mexican seems to have improved massively over the last 18 months, and perhaps this is due to how much he has learned over the past few fights, especially against the likes of Mayweather and Erislandy Lara.
Canelo is is the bigger man and has the power advantage. He is one of the most accurate power punchers in boxing, landing 48 percent. Anyway, against speed fighters such as Khan, Alvarez has struggled, landing career lows of 22 percent of punches. Another concern with Alvarez has been his stamina, as he does tend to wear down over the course of a fight.
Amir Khan (31-3 19KO’s) is a former junior welterweight world champion and will fight at middleweight for the first time in his career. He is on a five-fight win streak dating to December 2012. The Brit has always been involved in exciting fights, due to his aggressive style and frankly his lack of defence at times which has led to some real wars in the past, most notably his big victory against Marcos Maidana in 2010. He last stepped into the ring in May 2015 against former 140lb champion Chris Algieri, winning via unanimous decision in another good scrap.
Amir Khan is not the most powerful boxer, but his quick hands and straight punches allow him to dictate the fight and keep his opponent on his toes. The concern with Khan is his chin, as two of his his three losses have come by knockout by the likes of Danny Garcia and Breidis Prescott. He is about a 3/1 underdog but he has the experience and is smart enough to possibly pull off the upset here.
