Cintron: I've Come Here To Knock Canelo Alvarez Out

By Miguel Rivera

Former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron is not taking any chances with the official judges for tonight's title bout with WBC 154-pound beltholder Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The fight happens at Plaza de Toros in Mexico City, Mexico. Thousands of Mexican fans are expected to pack the venue and cheer every punch of the champion, which may influence the judges in the fight.

"I didn't come here to talk, I came to knock Canelo out because I want that belt. I came here to be a champion again and hopefully I won't get robbed in the fight by the judges," Cintron said.

Jose Sulaiman, the president of the World Boxing Council, tried to put Cintron at ease with a speech about the WBC's selection of judges.

"The World Boxing Council judges rarely give a bad decision. They are upright, decent and highly competitive. The public is going to see one of the great fights of the year," Sulaiman said.

Kermit was obviously scared in the Williams fight. I hope he has confidence now that he says he'll KO Alvarez.
