Alfonso Gomez: We'll See if Canelo is a Real Mexican

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Junior middleweight Alfonso Gomez looked great during a recent public workout at the Azteca Boxing Club in California. This coming Saturday at Staples Center in California, Gomez will challenge Saul "Canelo" Alvarez for the WBC championship. The fight will be broadcast in a split-feed format on the Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz HBO pay-per-view, which takes place in Las Vegas. Gomez wants to take the fight into the late rounds to test the young champion's worth.

"He's young, strong, fast, and he's not a world champion who just sits in a chair. He worked hard, no one has given him anything and he earned it, so I am very motivated to fight. As a boxer people like him, but I want to know what 'Canelo' will do when he's in front of me, when he's forced to fight deep in a dog-fight as they say, and let's see if he has the worth of a Mexican champion, which I do have," Gomez told ESPN Deportes.

[QUOTE=dblaze9;11131467]Damn, I don't think Gomez is as terrible as you guys are making him out to be. He's a decent fighter with good fundamentals. I think it is a good test for Canelo and not just some easy journeyman fight.[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=Corelone;11121028]How is it, I mean why do people complain about Canelo, cherry picking, fighting blown up, journeymen, and accept this as legitimate, after Canelo picks another blown up journeyman for a defense.[B] I could get rich selling bananas and Rogaine…

[QUOTE=microMXL;11123894]Canelo shouldn't have much problems with Gomez, if this is somehow competitive it will look bad for Alvarez[/QUOTE] I agree with this

Canelo shouldn't have much problems with Gomez, if this is somehow competitive it will look bad for Alvarez
