Canelo: Time To Show Trout That I'm The Best at 154

Saul Alvarez says he will unify the light-middleweight division by beating Austin Trout in San Antonio, Texas on April 20.

Undefeated 'Canelo' will be making the sixth defence of his WBC strap against the current WBA champion, who earned his stripes by beating Miguel Cotto in December.

"Austin Trout impressed me with his win but it's my time now, and I will show Trout why I am the best in the division," he said.

"Champions should fight each other because that's what true champions do. I know he will be a tough challenge, but I'm confident I will be the unified champion at the end of the night.

"Beating him will make a statement, and in so doing, I plan to avenge my brother's loss to him and bring victory home to Mexico too."

Trout has already made four defences of the belt he won by beating Rigoberto Alvarez and believes his experience will be key.

"Although he is a true champion, I don't believe he has had the ring experience or has faced the competition he should have in order to be able to handle the skills that I will show him when we fight April 20," he said.

"I have already defeated his brother and taken his belt, and I plan on making it two for two against the Alvarez's in my in my quest to be the best. I have no doubt that I will retain my title and takes his with me too. I can't wait."

Trout will go into the fight with a 26-0 record, while Alvarez is unbeaten in 42 contests at the age of just 22.

Canelo has this one. Trout will be in water too deep to swim in. It's the relentless high pressure Canelo by UD or late KO.

Canelo leaves the ring missing both of his ears from Trout boxing them off.
