De La Hoya: A Canelo win would be biggest ever in Mexico

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya believes that Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) beating Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) would be the most important win in Mexican boxing history - even more so than Julio Cesar Chavez's dramtic stoppage of Meldrick Taylor in the closing seconds of the twelfth round. Canelo will defend his WBC/WBA 154-pound titles against Mayweather on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I think so, [it would be the biggest win ever by a Mexican fighter], because Mayweather Jr. is undefeated, he is a difficult fighter to face, he is a crafty fighter and this will be a mega event that everyone will be watching. This victory would be very important for everyone in Mexico. For me Canelo is already [a superstar]. The people know him, admire him and respect him. The most important thing is to win fights. People want to see you win. He is already admired by people outside the ring, but I have no doubt that when he walks away people are going to consider him the best in the world," De Le Hoya told Rodrigo Azurmendi.

De la Hoya is nuts, the best wins in boxing for Mexico are Chavez ko Taylor, Sanchez ko over Vasquez and the most recent one Marquez ko Pacquiao. What ever happens in this sideshow of overhyped does not compare.

Oscar jinxed every single fighter he roots for. This is a proven fact.

Mexico's last big win was at the Alamo

Mexico is not known for winning much of anything. never won a war. Made the taco. That's about it. Good swimmers coming into the USA. Climb fences good also.
