MINTY BETS: On Saturday, May 7, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, it will be the WBA light heavyweight title bout between Canelo Alvarez minus 450 versus Dmitry Bivol plus 290. I'm Minty Bets and joining me is Kevin Iole to give us his best bet for this bout Kevin, what do you think about this one?

KEVIN IOLE: Well how do you bet against Canelo Alvarez, Minty? I mean, you look at what he has done. Winning the middleweight title, going up, unifying the Super Middleweight title. Now going after a light heavyweight belt. You know Dmitry Bivol is a very interesting guy and he fights an unusual style.

Canelo is really good at identifying styles and being able to pick it up. But I think Bivol's is so awkward and so unusual, I think it's going to be a little harder than usual. So, I was leaning for a long time, OK, I think Canelo stops him. Canelo have such a great body attack and he wears guys down and he eventually stops them.

But I think he's going to have a little more trouble in this. I still think Canelo will win and he'll win handily. But I don't think he's going to finish him. So I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to lay the money. I'm going to bet Canelo Alvarez to win. But I would not bet the finish.

So if I had a second play in there, it would be, does the fight go the distance? Yes.

MINTY BETS: Oh I like that. All right, thank you so much, Kevin.

KEVIN IOLE: Thanks, Minty.
