Canelo vs. Bivol Prediction:
The undisputed king of the game, Canelo Alvarez will start as the favorite. Canelo has about three-times more experience than Bivol, having 436 rounds of experience under his belt against Bivol’s 148.
This beastly fighter has 57-1-2, with a staggering 39 KOs in his stunning career. Canelo is a more aggressive player than Bivol. He charges his opponents for putting them in constant pressure. He lands powerful blows to hands if the head and body are well covered.
On the other hand, Dmitry Bivol is more of an economical fighter. He chooses his shots carefully and doesn’t waste killer blows. He has fast hands and quick feet. Bivol should make good use of his height and reach advantages against Canelo in this game.
Bivol takes it to the last to win a fight. He has won six straight games by 12-round decision. On the other hand, Canelo likes to end it with a KO blow. If Saturday’s game ends in a KO blow, it would be done by Canelo.
If Canelo comes in the ring with anything less than his 100 percent, he should be punished by Bivol. On the other hand, Canelo is too good a player to lose by a KO. We expect it would be a long night for the fighters.
- Prediction: Canelo win by unanimous decision UD-12.
The odds are against the undefeated, 19-0 with 11 KOs, the 175 WBA Champion Dmitry Bivol. We don’t need to say anything about the caliber of Canelo when he gets the favor in the eyes of bookmakers against Bivol.
According to DraftKings, Canelo gets the favor to win the 12-round match as a -475. It means that you can bet $475 to win $100 for Canelo.
