Canelo-Trout: Saul Aims To Add Trout's Record To List

By Miguel Rivera

WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) is motivated to claim the undefeated record of WBA king Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs). They clash in a unification encounter on April 20 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. More than 30,000 tickets have been sold and a packed arena of 40,000 or more is expected.

Managers Jose and Chepo Reynoso point out that Canelo is no stranger to facing, and beating, another undefeated fighter. Miguel Vazquez tasted defeat in his pro debut when he faced Canelo in January 2006 in Guadalajara. To this list were added Pedro Lopez and Javier Martinez. Then later on was Gabriel "Rey" Martinez (17-0-1, 9 KO's), and then Euri Gonzalez (17-0-1, 12 KO's) in February 2009 in Zapopan.

There were also nine fighters who only had a single loss when they faced, and lost, to Canelo - including Jose Miguel Cotto, Raul Pinzon, Antonio Fitch and a few others.

[QUOTE=AP♠;13204097]Pretty lame to compare those bottom barrel bums to Trout.I'm feeling awkward about this fight even being in Texas,I mean why? Vegas is the boxing capital of the world and Canelo should be a hot ticket there already especially now…
