Canelo: His Punches Not Strong, Very Fast and Accurate

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Former champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) admits he couldn't find an answer for the fast, elusive style of Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs). Mayweather won a twelve round majority decision. One judge, CJ Ross, scored the bout 114-114, but most at ringside saw Canelo winning one or two rounds at best. Canelo said he was never hurt by Mayweather's punches and they were not that strong, but the shots were very fast, very accurate - and that made them very difficulty to avoid.

"I didn't want to get a loss but that's boxing. He's very fast and accurate. Those punches weren't really that strong, but he makes points [with those punches] and he's really tough. I had my game plan and I kept trying to work on my game plan but he was very good and he took me out of [my game plan]. I just didn't have an answer," Canelo said.

[QUOTE=Cutthroat;13752703]Canelo's elbow/arm punching was a huge part of his gameplan, it just didn't work. I clearly remember Canelo asking the guys he was sparring whether or not the punches on their arms/shoulders hurt, they said yes and it affected them…

I see Floyd a lot like Calzaghe now. Not powerful, racks up points, but rarely pleases the crowd and rarely hurts his opponents. People said Calaghe just slapped, but but his slaps were good enough to keep fighters honest.
