Best bets for Canelo Alvarez-Billy Joe Saunders fight

Saturday evenings in Dallas are sometimes reserved for NFL playoff nights for the Cowboys.  This Saturday, a gunslinger from across the border rides into town as the AT&T Stadium plays host to the biggest draw in boxing.  Three Super-Middleweight titles are on the line as the WBA/WBC titlist Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez faces the WBO holder Billy Joe Saunders from England in what will be a very intriguing clash of styles.

What can I say about Canelo (55-1-2, 37 KOs) that we don't know already?  At age 30, he is at the peak of his powers, and he is probably at his optimum weight.  The four-division champ is clearly the No. 1 fighter in the world based on his resume alone, and his list of big-name victims is longer than one’s arm, yet in some quarters he still doesn’t get the credit he deserves.
