De La Hoya: I Beat Mayweather, Canelo Will KO Him

By Edward Chaykovsky

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya expects WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) to score a knockout victory over Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. And De La Hoya says Canelo should do it in eight rounds. De La Hoya fought Mayweather in 2007 and lost a very close twelve round split decision.

"You have the 2 biggest names in boxing facing each other. There will be fireworks. You will see a good fight, a solid fight  You have the guy with the torch and the guy who is going to get the torch...and everyone knows it," De La Hoya said.

"Mayweather got the decision but I feel that I beat him. Canelo is so calm and mature. Nothing gets to him. He is focused. I tell him to stay focused. And keep pumping your jab. That is the key. My world changed after I beat Chavez. Canelo is experiencing the glory and ahead of his time. If he doesn't knock Floyd out in less than eight rounds, I will be very surprised.

If this fight goes to the cards and it's a split decision Canelo will get the win. This will create more money in the rematch.
