De La Hoya: I'm With Canelo 100%, He Wants to Destroy

By Edward Chaykovsky

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya is making it no secret that he's side by side with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (43-1-1, 31KOs), who faces WBA 'regular' junior middleweight champion Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12KOs) in the main event of Saturday's Showtime Pay-Per-View from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Canelo is the star fighter of De La Hoya's company and he faces a very dangerous opponent. The fight is very personal for both, with Lara trashing Canelo for quite some time on the social networks. Lara is angered because he believes Golden Boy has shown favoritism to Canelo and he wants to punish him in the fight.

"The fact this fight is personal, it is the first time that I have seen Canelo with that extra determination. He has looked perfect in training camp. He wants to destroy Lara. This is exactly where he needs to be. I can see it in his eyes, his focus says it all," De La Hoya said.

"Every fighter in the ring has a chance. With fighting, one punch can change the entire dynamic of a fight. I'm expecting a great fight from top to bottom, but obviously I'm with Canelo 100 percent."

No one cares about Canelo vs Cotto. People including myself want to see GGG vs Cotto. Canelo said he has no plans on moving up to higher weight classes any time soon.

Al Haymon>Oscar De La Hoya. Al Haymon has more influence on judges than Oscar does.
