Former champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) says his compatriot, hard Mexican puncher Alfredo Angulo, was the best possible option to headline a Showtime Pay-Per-View event on March 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. IBF 154-pound champion Carlos Molina, and WBA 154-pound interim-champ Erislandy Lara, were also options.

Coming off a September decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr., Canelo wanted the most exciting opponent possible for the live audience and the pay-per-view customers. Canelo was not convinced that picking Lara or Molina would provide a main event filled with fireworks.

"People wants to see excitement. They want action. They don't want to see running. I decided to fight him because he is a very strong fighter, he was the best option to fight. Obviously I wanted to come back with a high level fight. "It was hard to deal with that first loss. It hurt my pride, nobody wants to lose. Floyd is a smart fighter. Fans don't like the way he fights, but he wins. I learned a lot from that fight," Canelo said.

[QUOTE=.:: JSFD26 ::.]Yea, I saw what happened and it would've been embarrassing if it didn't. Cause after all, Canelo WAS twice his size. Posted from App for Android[/QUOTE] Yes, twice his size but weight drained, ydiot. In that case, Floyd was thrice the size of Marquez.

[QUOTE=nycsmooth]if Alvarez's best win is Trout, doesn't say much the way Lara dominated him, which shows why Alvarez avoids him like the plague...[/QUOTE] The same Lara that got dropped by Angulo twice and had to resort to cheating to win???

I hate to see to Mexicans at that point of their careers fight. One of them will have another blemish on their record. But like canelo said, no one wants to see a runner-hugger like Floyd. This will be a great fight. Oh, and before Floydnuthuggers open their mouths let me remind you that most peo...
