SAN ANTONIO, Texas: Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) notched a 12-round unanimous decision victory over Austin Trout (26-1, 14KOs) Saturday to unify the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association light middleweight titles on Saturday night. The three judges at ringside scored it overwhelmingly in Alvarez’s favor: 115-112, 116-111 and 118-109.

Alvarez landed a sharp straight right that knocked down Trout seconds into the seventh round — the first time the American had ever been down. The crowd of nearly 40,000 at San Antonio’s Alamodome was pro-Alvarez, and the 22-year-old from Guadalajara appreciated their backing.

“This is for my brother,” said Alvarez, whose brother Rigoberto was beaten by Trout in 2011 for the vacant WBA light middlewight crown. "He's my blood and it was a big motivation for this fight. Austin Trout is a very difficult fighter. He’s a southpaw. But we were more intelligent in this fight today — and the better the opponent is, the better we will get. I have a big responsibility and I’m very grateful to this crowd for their support."

When asked if he wants to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. next, Canelo replied - "I hope so."

[QUOTE=Pacdbest]Was That The reason why Floyd ducks Pacquiao? Let's see if Floyd finally takes a Fighter who has the Chance to beat him? Guerrero is not a threat! Ortiz was not! Jmm was too small when Floyd calls him, Cotto was shot when Floyd finally found his balls![/QUOTE] AWWW Poor P...

Floyd wont fight Canelo next, Because he's got 6 fights left, most of these fight could be meaningless until his last one, which could be Pacquiao if he holds a belt, but probably Canelo. When hes schools Canelo and trust me he will, it would be such a good way to end his career to unify and beco...

[QUOTE=SOPH~ REP.]I doubt that Floyd wants Canelo at 154 or Canelo wants Floyd at 147 Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/QUOTE] The problem is Floyd doesn't want Canelo at ANY weight.
