Handicapping Notes

Kirkland was a decent fighter about six years ago but he hasn’t fought that much in recent years and his level of opposition has been weak. Kirkland simply looks to be hand picked to come out and go right at Canelo and get knocked out. This fight is very important for Canelo as he needs to look impressive and he should have every opportunity to look good against Kirkland.
