I will be in Vegas that weekend! Of course I'll be at the Chavez/Martinez fight, but I'll still be there! One favor that I ask of you guys...if/when you're on the boards that night, PLEASE make that round by round thread worth it! I'll be reading the board, drinking and trying to watch Chavez/Martinez live at the same time!
If Lopez does what he says he will do (disrupt Canelo's rhythm), then he will either win by stoppage (accumulation), or make a great account of himself in route to a decision loss (same as Cotto did against Mayweather). Canelo tends to be second in parts of his fights, and his breaks a bit obvious at times.
I haven't seen much of Canelo's inside game, but he will need it if Lopez is in his chest all night. I believe a Carlos Molina-type game plan will do Lopez some good. Other than that, if Canelo catches Lopez a couple of times, and Lopez happens to fight him with repsect (as I've NEVER seen from Lopez), then we know this will end.
Lopez is one cool ass Mexican!!!
