MGM Grand, Las Vegas - WBO junior middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade believes Alfredo Angulo can score a knockout in the second half, if he targets the body of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in the first half of tonight's main event.
Because Canelo struggled to make weight for the contest, Andrade says the once-beaten Mexican may have softened up his body in camp as he worked to squeeze down.
"I believe it's going to be an interesting fight, toe to toe like they say. I think they built it up for Canelo to win, but I don't know. If Angulo goes in and goes to the body early, I think he can take him in the later rounds, and I think that's what the strategy might be him. And for Canelo, he's going to try to outbox him. [If I was Angulo] I would go to that body early on, not so much head hunt, and go to that body because [Canelo] already wore his body down in training camp just to make the weight," Andrade told BoxingScene.com.Tags: Saul Alvarez , Demetrius Andrade , Alfredo Angulo , Canelo-Angulo , Canelo vs. Angulo
