Now for the million-dollar question, which to date, only one man has had the answer for. So, how do you beat Canelo? The man who may well have all the answers to that is Billy Joe Saunders.
A career full of mixed emotions both inside and outside of the ring, Billy Joe has built up a reputation for being not just one of the slickest boxers in the 160lbs & 168lbs divisions, but one of the slickest boxers on the planet. However, he's just failed to land that career-defining fight yet, but he gets that here up against the Mexican.
For starters, we need to see the best Saunders we've ever seen. He'll admit himself that one of his problems can be that he fights to the level of his opponents but if he manages to do that here, then he's in with a real chance.
On the occasions he's needed to step up against the likes of Chris Eubank Jr, Andy Lee and most famously, David Lemieux, where he put on an absolute boxing clinic away from home, he has done. All in all, we know Billy has got a big performance in his locker.
That snappy southpaw jab will prove crucial here. Saunders can whack, but if Canelo can take a shot clean off one of the hardest hitters of all time outside of the heavyweight division, Gennady Golovkin, then it's going to take some punch from Saunders to buzz him. The Englishman needs to frustrate him. He needs to make him miss and win the mental battle before the physical battle.
Saunders will need to use that free-flowing footwork of his to step in and out of range and pivot off to different angles to basically upset the rhythm of his opponent. Expect him not to necessarily try to hurt Canelo with every punch, but to try and simply land scoring shots on a regular basis off the back foot.
The Londoner cannot afford to let this fight turn in to a phone box tear up because that just takes away all the advantages that he possesses over the Mexican, and if he manages to keep the fight at range and control the pace of the fight, he's got a proper chance of upsetting the odds here.
