Canelo Alvarez Hopes To Get Floyd Mayweather Next

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."
