Recently, Hustle Boss caught up with two-division world champion Zab “Super” Judah, as he gave his prediction on the Nov. 21 Miguel Cotto vs. Canelo Alvarez clash.

Judah is favoring Canelo slightly in the match, as he feels that he 25-year old from Jalisco, Mexico may be a little too much for the 34-year old, four-division titlist from Puerto Rico.

“Canelo’s a bigger, stronger guy,” Judah explained. “A much younger guy. I don’t know, but if I had to put my money on it, I’m leaning towards Canelo Alvarez.”

Opinions on the matchup have definitely been varying, and it’s not surprising to hear a wide range of topics on the matchup. And just as easily and I found Judah pointing towards Canelo to win, so too did I find another insider tipping Cotto to emerge victorious.

Speaking with budding middleweight prospect Shane Mosley Jr. (4-1, 4 KO’s), he has great respect for Canelo and speaks with high notes of their times together sparring in the past. Still, it isn’t enough for him to give him the edge on Nov. 21.

“I love Canelo, but on experience, you can’t [pay for] experience,” Mosley Jr. said to Hustle Boss’ Vada Hedgeman. “Cotto has the experience in his favor. It’s like 51/49 Cotto. Very little [edge].”
