Controversy sparked by the announcement of Saul Alvarez vs Amir Khan boxing match Alvarez has the skills and size – power advantage against his opponent but in terms of speed Amir Khan possess one of the fastest hands in boxing today although he does not have a one punch knock out power his footwork will be one of his key in the match.
This fight will be at stake for Amir Khan, who couple time ago just rising class of light-welterweight, and without warm-up matches in advance directly challenge WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez. A brave decision of Amir Khan.
The Golden Boy Promotions headed by the Golden Boy itself Oscar De La Hoya claims that this is biggest fight in boxing this year. He said, Canelo has proved its capacity as the famous boxer when he overthrew James Kirkland and Miguel Cotto. As for Khan, he has won his last five fights and is in top form in his career. Surely prestige both fighters will also be at stake.
Earlier, the President WBC Mauricio Sulaiman frustrated with the attitude of Saul Canelo Alvarez are reluctant to serve Gennady Golovkin. The fight both fighters, into a mandatory fight, and if Canelo reluctant to do, Solomon also threatened to remove the title. It was understandable after Canelo Alvarez instead decided to fight Amir Khan as his opponent, and is still in question causes Canales did not fight with Golovkin after beating Miguel Cotto, which is already a part of the deal after beat Miguel Cotto.
However this will be very exciting match, Amir Khan is the new class entrants will be against the defending champions, both fighters have set up their strategy, but many predicted Canelo would win this fight , but who knows Amir Khan unexpected strategies? He is quick, because the weight is lighter than Canelo, he can imitate the style of fighting Mayweather, who is agile capable of defeating Canelo some time ago, Canelo also, in the last interview he also suspect, style of khan, will be the same as the style of Mayweather when beating him, and he well experienced abou that and ready to ward off the fast blow by khan.. Of course, very exciting to see who is really going to be a champion, they can not be underestimated, despite predictions choose one of them, but anything can happen on the boxing ring, the words that suitable for this match is simply unpredictable.
I don’t think Amir Khan is capable of defeating Canelo Alvarez by Knock Out he just don’t have the punching power to do it but maybe he can outpoint Alvarez by boxing smartly. In the part of Canelo Alvarez he is capable of winning this fight either by Knock Out because he has the power and size advantage or by Decision, Alvarez also have the skills to go on for the whole 12 rounds like when he defeated Puerto boxing star Miguel Cotto.
My prediction: Canelo Alvarez will win this fight by Knock Out
