People seem to think BJS has a chance due to the excellent footwork (excessive movement) he showed against David Lemeiux. They're saying it'll make a difference because of the trouble he had with Mayweather's movement and Erislandy Lara's southpaw stance (BJS is also southpaw).
Thing is, Canelo has vastly improved since his fight with Lara. Both Mayweather and Lara are better than BJS. Don't get me wrong, Billy Joe is good, but hell I had Demetrius Andrade beating him before Billy test positve for a banned substance.
Billy, always the asshole, has been nothing less in the buildup to the fight. He e told a Mexican reporther "you're breath smells like shit" at one of the pressers. Eddy Reynoso (Canelo's trainer) has said he usually just wants to win the fight, but he really hopes Canelo KO's Billy. I think Canelo is pretty pissed too.
Ring walks should be around 11pm EST.
