Saturday, July 12, 2014, Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara battle it out in an eagerly-anticipated Jr. Middleweight showdown live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.

The bout–which will be shown live on Showtime pay-per-view–will crown the best fighter at 154 pounds (not named Floyd Mayweather Jr.), although Lara’s WBA strap will not be on the line.

Each man earned a dominant victory in their last outing, with Canelo destroying Alfredo Angulo and Lara picking Austin Trout apart.

Before the highly-skilled fighters go at it on Saturday night, Round By Round Boxing’s Sr. Analyst Gabe Rivas and Editor-in-Chief Alex Burgos go head-to-head.

Read on for the keys to victory for each fighter and let us know who you think will win, Canelo vs. Lara.
