Saul “Canelo” Alvare plans to end fight before decision!
By Gianni Verschueren- Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) has revealed how he plans to defeat Miguel Cotto (40-4, 33 KOs) when the two meet for the WBC middleweight title belt on November 21 in Las Vegas, telling reporters he’s going to start fast and prevent the defending champion from lasting the full 12 rounds.
“I do not want to leave this in the hands of judges. I’m ready to come out and press in the first round. We’re going to press the fight. He is very strong physically, so we have to [combat that factor] from the very beginning of the fight.”
A new Boot Group Camp class is coming to town this Thursday 7pm to 8pm.

“Floyd is a special fighter but all that ‘TBE’ stuff? He’s delusional,” Mancini told Boxing News. “Sugar Ray Leonard? Roberto Duran? Tommy Hearns? He wouldn’t beat any of those guys and it’s disrespectful to them. First of all fighters should just be humble, and if they’re mentioned with the best guys of all-time, they should be honoured. You don’t turn round and say you’re ‘The Best Ever’.”
But Mancini, who fought the likes of Alexis Arguello, Jose Luis Ramirez, Bobby Chacon, and Hector Camacho, does believe that Mayweather has something that Leonard did not.
Mancini refused to predict what would have happened if he’d have met Mayweather in the ring but believes his busy, pressure fighting-style would have given Floyd some problems.
Mancini did have praise – of sorts – for Floyd’s advisor, and increasingly influential powerbroker, Al Haymon.
“In six months to a year we’ll know if he’s the dumbest guy out there or the smartest. But he’s trying to bringing boxing back to network television, so God bless him for that.”
Boxing News 24 by Chris Williams:
Amir Khan (31-3, 19 KOs) says he’s giving the negotiations one more week for a fight against Manny Pacquiao.
If they’re not wrapped up by then, Khan is going to move on. Khan recently said this week that he’s pulling out of the negotiations because they’re stalling on the contract. However, Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum said that there isn’t a contract yet for Khan to sign. They’re still working on things.
Arum is reportedly waiting until the November fight between his two Top Rank fighters Tim Bradley and Brandon Rios to get finished, as the winner of that fight is a potential candidate for Pacquiao’s last fight of his career in May 2016. Arum also could match Pacquiao against his fighter WBO light welterweight champion Terence Crawford.
