The undercard is also worth to speak as it holds James Kirkland who has attained the career’s notch by fighting Canelo. That was a defeat for Kirkland by the 3rd round Knockout, it was really a scary one, his full-face got collapsed by the direct punch from Canelo’s huge hand.

The Super Middleweight is going to select one of its major world belt holders on the day after Christmas, the belt is the secondary for the one which Canelo is holding. This shows the importance of the belt in this division. Even Morrel is just a debut fighter, he seems much better than Gavronski, it got proved in his last fight. Our Prediction is on the side of Morrel, he may win through the unanimous Decision.
