Canelo Addresses The Solis Scandal at Cintron Presser

By Ryan Maquiñana

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez addressed questions regarding a recent scuffle involving IBF junior flyweight titlist Ulises “Archi” Solis at the Mexico City press conference for the WBC junior middleweight champion’s upcoming Nov. 26 title defense against Kermit Cintron.

“This [response] is for everyone,” Alvarez said, his words translated from Spanish.  “It is the only thing I am going to say. I would not be here if I had something to fear. I would have cancelled everything. I am a young man who has never been involved in scandals or problems. And like I said, I would not be here if I had something to fear."

When subsequently asked about a pending case stemming from the altercation, Alvarez replied, "That is all I can tell you. I have nothing to fear."

On Tuesday, Solis revealed he sustained a broken jaw and broken tooth, which he claimed was a result of a confrontation he had with Alvarez in Guadalajara, Mexico, the hometown of both fighters and the location of their training grounds.

Solis stated that Alvarez accused him of partaking in illicit behavior with Alvarez’s girlfriend, at which point the 154-pounder assailed him with a barrage of punches.

For his part, Alvarez denied that he had attacked Solis, but informed Mexican reporter Sal Rodriguez that one of his brothers had done it instead.

[QUOTE=LAFIRPO;11338539]Man, there are some judgemental and haters on this forum. Even if he did beat someone up, he's 21 years old, and who here who is older than 21 has never made a mistake before at that age/ It's funny,…

Solis get nothing out of lying about Alvarez beating him up, so I doubt he is lying. Alvarez is just saying his brother did it because he has more to lose than his brother.

[QUOTE=Dustaine;11338243]I wish you people would learn to read so you stop talking ****. 1- It wasn't his girlfriend. It was his daughter's mom, from whom he separated long ago. 2- He's not with the model anymore anyway.[/QUOTE] Calm down son

This is ridiculous. Latinos are always in machismo mode when it comes to women. Why would a young, rich, good-looking, athletic dude like Canelo have anything to fear from a midget that looks like a leprechaun? If a woman prefers…
