Canelo Says Trout Fight is Personal, Jabs Mayweather

By Fernando Schwartz, notifight.com

WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) says the upcoming unification with WBA champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs) "is personal." Canelo reflects back on February of 2011, when Trout defeated his older brother Rigoberto Alvarez in Guadalajara, Mexico. Canelo gets the opportunity to avenge his family on April 20th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

"Of course is it personal. He is a great fighter, an undefeated world champion, a difficult oppoonent who won't be easy [to beat]. We are excited about that. I'll be ready, and I'll fight him perfectly for the victory. In the fight with Cotto, Miguel did not think before throwing his punches. You have to look for openings, find the punches that work and then plug those holes. In terms of speed, I believe I'm faster than him and it will be a factor that night," Canelo said.

Canelo touched on the subject for Floyd Mayweather Jr., who the Mexican star is claiming walked away from a planned September fight. Canelo was going to fight Trout on Mayweather's May 4th undercard - pursuant to Mayweather's signature on a contract for the two of them to fight in September.

"He made all of the terms [in the contract]. There was an agreement and he did not sign it. We talked with Golden Boy week after week. He wouldn't sign and I refused to fight on his card. It dragged out week after week. Mayweather decided everything [in the contract], money and everything. The only thing I wanted was to beat him. So I was willing to take a risk with the money [by fighting on his undercard]. I just wanted to beat him. He is not a man of his word. Today he says 'yes', tomorrow he says 'no,'" said Canelo.

[QUOTE=Sweet Pea 50;13121454]Do I really need to explain it? There is a reason why there is a term on here for someone taking a world class ass whipping as "Being Gatti'ed." Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Arturo Gatti is the reason…
