By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya once again expressed the opinion that WBC/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) will be faster and in much better shape for Floyd Mayweather Jr. - because of the agreed upon catch-weight of 152-pounds. The fight is scheduled for September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Canelo is a guy who is strong, hits hard and he is fast, but sneaky fast. People will be surprised at how fast he will be. The [catch-weight] is something that had to be done [to get the deal made]. I don't think it will affect either fighter one bit. I think on the contrary, it will probably play to Canelo's advantage. I think he will have no problem making 152. I think the way it benefits him is not only will he work harder, but he’ll be faster inside the ring. He won’t be carrying that extra weight, he has a nutrionist now, he has perfect team now,” De La Hoya told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=BoxingFan82]Will Canelo's food, nutritionist, trainer, conditioner and sparring partners be joining him in the ring when he fights Floyd? Didn't think so. It always amazes me to see how many boxing fans actually believe that a boxer can go on a diet and hire a bunch of experts a few mon...

He should boil himself down to 130. He'll be like lightning. I guess DLH learned his craft at the foot of the master, Bob Arum. "we become what we hate"

[QUOTE=MindBat]Then they'll show him the Floyd and Castillo II rematch video, and he'll tell Castillo to go home after the first day.[/QUOTE] Mang !!!! We all know that Jr had his AZZZ handed to him in Castillo 1

comment by Gatling, on 06-26-2013
[QUOTE=STREET CLEANER]Instead of a training camp it becomes a weight loss program and trying to keep it down. It is better that he can come down in the weigh in at 152 and is able to hydrate back up nicely. Sometimes when a fighter loses too much weight and tries to keep it down they can't rehy...
