4. The Wildcard that is Kirkland
Speaking of Kirkland, he’s not exactly a slouch. He only has one defeat in his career (same as Canelo), with 32 wins. He also has a solid amateur background where he racked up over 100 victories. Plus, he’s coming off an impressive TKO over Glen Tapia. There has been a change in trainers, the reasons why are still shrouded in mystery. However, if the Kirkland that showed up against Tapia is in the ring on May 9th Canelo will certainly have his hands full.
