This is a great fight for true boxing heads. You have puncher boxer Saul “Canelo” Alvarez pitted against the tough-as-nails James Kirkland. The fight will take place on HBO boxing a week after the mega fight between Pacquiao vs Mayweather.
Kirkland can punch and punch and has power behind those punches. He will need to overcome his technical limitations in the ring and find some boxing ability. The keys to victory is to cut off the ring & stay inside Alvarez's strike zone. Here he can punish the body. But Alvarez likes to fight inside so Kirkland will need to box on the outside.
Alvarez, when he faces Kirkland, he will be fighting a boxer who comes at you and likes to bang. Kirkland has punching power & a solid chin. Alvarez is going to have to show off his boxing skills and bang with the banger in intervals. The keys to victory for Alvarez is his jab/hook. He throws his jab and turns it into a powerful hook at the end of his punch.
