Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is hard at work training for his fight against Alfredo “Perro” Angulo on March 8th where he will look to bounce back from his first professional loss to Floyd Mayweather this past September.

Alvarez is now training in San Diego, CA as he built a gym in the comfort of his home and left his former training sites of Los Angeles and Big Bear behind. For the 23 year old former champion, there’s nothing better than being in his own ambience as he cites that as one of the main reasons for the move.

While his training site may have changed, his desire to win has remained the same as he hopes to get back in the mix by beating a hardnosed fighter in Angulo. The fight has been billed “Toe to Toe” and while Angulo has promised to do his part to live up to the name, Canelo was asked how he would approach the fight.

“I’m going to look for whatever is convenient for me to win. I’m going to look for what’s convenient for me to win the fight from the first round. And obviously that’s my main line of thinking, to go out there and win” said Canelo.

Alvarez admitted during the press tour that part of the reason he picked Angulo was that he always came forward looking for a fight and that’s exactly what he wants to give the fans. Some think Alvarez’s decision to fight Angulo is based on the fact that he’s a beatable opponent but Alvarez explains Angulo is anything but an easy out.

“He’s a very tough fighter. It’s a dangerous fight because he’s a fighter that hits and can take punches and last. He always comes forward. There are difficult fights but this is a tough fight because he’s a tough hard fighter who likes to come forward” Alvarez would tell BoxingScene.

BoxingScene was allowed to attend a private training session for Alvarez where he worked with brother Ricardo Alvarez and also put his hand speed and power on display during some intense rounds of mitt work with head trainer Eddy Reynoso.

Alvarez assures he feels strong and is ready and while “Perro” is ready to bite, he’s also anxious to get in the ring and deliver some punishment.

Angulo will stop Canelo early

[QUOTE=PRchamp]Canelo is not about that life. Angulo is going to take him to war and is going to make Canelo quit on his stool.[/QUOTE] Not sure how you came up with that theory :dunno: Flatfooted, slow and one dimensional Angulo will get stopped by within 6 rounds. He is nothing but a comebac...

Angulo is not going to let Canelo fight carefully he is going to have to fight and mix it up a bit. Canelo doesn't have the overall boxing skills to just be defensive from a distance and keep Angulo at bay.

does this mean he's gonna train for stamina then? he's got this as long as he doesn't get tired he can get away with fighting in spots against a guy slower than him but he better be able to sustain it all the way through 12

I don't expect Angulo to give the youngen too many problems.
