Real Talk says:

Let's go Josesito!!!!! I like this kid, he rumbles. Dueces

riverside says:

Canelo should blow Josesito away in easy manner, No shame the kid From Rubidoux east Riverside will walk out with his head up, Henry needs to know when to raise the white flag, not too early.

the Roast says:

Canelo will get to the body for a KO in 6-8 rounds I think. Lopez is all heart. He's out of his weight class. I hope it's a good fight for a few rounds.

MisterLee says:

Lopez endures the early rounds... works the body and stops a gassed out Canelo round 10. Crow.

brownsugar says:

Champions need to stop doing this, .... dipping 2 weight classes below their normal weight class sends only 1 message...."PROTECTED PROPERTY"... This is a Lose-Lose situation for Canelo, he has to win,........ and he has to win big or he'll be laughed out of the Ratings in his own home country.

The beasty undercard will keep me busy until the main event on the Martinez/Chavez card.... Otherwise the main event will be recorded for viewing at a later date.
