By Dan Ambrose:Sergey Kovalev in his title defense against Saul Canelo Alvarez on November 2. The bigger, stronger WBO light heavyweight champion Kovalev (34-3-1, 29 KOs) is the underdog against the younger fighter Canelo Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs) with the public and the odd-makers. However, Hunter thinks that the outcome of the fight will be determined on simple factors.

Canelo-Kovalev not showing animosity towards each other 

Canelo, 29, is looking to win his 4th division world title by moving up to light heavyweight next month on on November 2 at the in Las Vegas, Nevada. Kovalev, 36, is the champion that Canelo chose to fight. The two are familiar with each other, and they appear to be on friendly terms.

Some would say that Canelo and Kovalev are TOO friendly, and they looked like buddies in their kickoff press conference recently. For fans used to seeing an unsmiling Canelo glaring at his opponents during his press conference, it was kind of jarring to see Canelo smiling and laughing with Kovalev during their face off.

Kovalev is a lot lighter on his feet than Golovkin, and Canelo might be surprised at how quick and difficult he is to nail down.
