We've already broken down the fight in a number of ways, but at this point, it comes down to one big question: Can Canelo Alvarez actually win? Can he be the man to solve the riddle of Floyd Mayweather and hand the all time great the first loss of his professional career? It's a tall task, and, if you ask our colleagues over at Bad Left Hook, Canelo is not up to it. For another look at this question, I encourage you to check out these Judo Chop breakdowns done by Connor and myself:
