Alvarez (41-0, 30 KO) and Trout (26-0, 14 KO) come in to the fight with unblemished records, but one man will be leaving with the first loss of their career.

It’s an incredible fight between two of the sport’s young stars and could really set up a bright future for the sport if the 22-year-old Alvarez is able to get by his opponent in impressive fashion. Of course, Alvarez will have some legal issues to take care of after the bout, but his current focus is on his 27-year-old opponent.
Prediction: After taking some time to figure out Trout’s stance and reach advantage, Canelo will be able to close the distance and use his quick hands to score enough point to take a judges decision. It will be an entertaining back-and-forth fight that ultimately ends with Canelo’s hand being raised in victory.
