Fortune Telling Elvis Says, “It’s Now Or Never”

The last time I checked in with Elvis the Soothsayer we knew Corona as a libation not an infestation. So, with a smile on my face and a skip in my step, I couldn’t wait to speak to “The King” to get his prediction on Canelo vs. GGG III. After two years it was going to be good to see my old friend.

And yes, I am aware Elvis doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to fight predictions, but when you are headed to the biggest event in Las Vegas, who else would you go to?

According to Presley, this third installment of Canelo vs. GGG is going to be a slugfest of epic proportions. If you thought the first two fights were exciting, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. There is so much at stake for both fighters in this one it’s suggested for those in attendance to fasten their seatbelts and buckle those chin straps.

“That’s all well and good, but how does “The King” see it”, you ask?

He breaks it down like this;

Golovkin is going to come out like gangbusters, count on it. His best bet to beat his arch nemesis is to hurt him early and often. Breaking Canelo down in the early stages of the fight is not only paramount for GGG, it’s really his only hope. With that in mind, look for a war to start almost immediately.

The chances are good Canelo will get hurt, he might even go down. But if he can survive the early artillery from Golovkin the fight will turn rapidly and Canelo will take over in the mid rounds. When that happens look for GGG to fade fast.

The reality of the situation is this, Golovkin just turned 40 years old and he is fighting at a blown up 168 pounds. That’s strike one and strike two.

For Canelo, he is coming off an unexpected and embarrassing loss to Dmitry Bivol. Throw in his genuine disdain for Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin, and there you have strike three. As exciting as it is going to be in the opening rounds the fight is going to go the way of Canelo by round six.

Book it!

The last time I checked “Father Time” is undefeated. He will remain so on Saturday night.

According to Fortune Telling Elvis, it will be somewhere around the seventh or eighth round that the onslaught will be too much for GGG and the fight will come to a screeching halt.

Tomorrow will be too late,
It’s now or never…
