charleschavezjr commented, “This should not be a risky fight for you at all. You MUST do three things this fight and you win easy. Use ur jab the entire fight. Canelo struggles when he faces a good jab. 2. Set the pace. Don’t let Canelo rest. He fights in burst then catches his breath. Don’t let him. 3. Don’t forget abt your jab. Of you do these things you win easy.”
