Canelo Alvarez will step into the ring as a heavy favorite to defeat Josesito Lopez in dominating fashion. Alvarez is the bigger and much more naturally gifted fighter between the two. Throughout his professional boxing career, Canelo has put together an undefeated record of 40 wins, 29 knockouts and one draw. For several years fans have thought of Alvarez as boxing's next big superstar. He is a great personal and highly recognizable due to being a red headed Mexican fighter.
Josesito Lopez is basically a light welterweight who is moving all the way up to fight Canelo at light middleweight. Lopez was last seen shocking the world by punishing Victor Ortiz and ultimately forcing him to quit on his stool due to a broken jaw. Lopez has a professional boxing record of 30 wins, 18 knockouts and four losses.
Lopez has a ton of heart and he fights like a warrior in the ring, but Canelo is just too strong, too fast and too smart to let the much smaller man beat him. We expect Lopez to try his hardest and put on one heck of a show, but in the end we don't see him beating Alvarez. In fact, we would not be surprised if Lopez ended the night on his back from getting knocked out.
If Lopez somehow pulls off the upset, he will instantly become one of boxing's biggest names. On the other hand, if Alvarez wins, he is expected to chase after a fight against one boxing's biggest names in Floyd Mayweather.
