Canelo: I Want To Be One of The Best in Boxing History

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs), the junior middleweight champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC), wants to write his name in the boxing history books. He faces WBA champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs) in a big unification on April 20th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. At 22-years-old and already a superstar in Mexico, Canelo wants to be involved in the biggest fights possible to stamp his name among the best fighters of all-time.

"One of my biggest dreams is to be one of the best fighters in history and for people to recognize me forever and I'm working on that. For this fight [with Trout] I'm going to look different, because every opponent is different. It will be a difficult match, and we all know that Trout is a difficult southpaw, but I embrace the challenge and we'll take it round by round and win. The only thing in my mind is victory and making sure the fans that day are happy and satisfied," Canelo told El Campo.

I very much so see this guy being P4P next to Broner in a couple of years and I can't wait. He just needs to be patient and stop trying to fight the best so soon. At 22 years old,…

I don't see that kind of potential in Canelo. Canelo reminds me more of Fernando Vargas in potential.
