Post Comments Thread For: Alvarez, Cintron Downplay Mexico-P.R. Rivalry Angle

By Jake Donovan

The in-ring rivalry between Mexico and Puerto Rico is one of the fiercest in the recent history of the sport. Some legendary battles have come from the series, and is often used as a key selling point whenever a fight surfaces featuring such nationalities.

Among the more significant in queue is the December 3 rematch between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito. Even Spanish station Telemundo is marketing a December 9 showdown between faded ex-champions Alex ‘Nene’ Sanchez and Eric Ortiz as an extension of the rivalry.

One fight were you can expect to not see excessive flag waving is this weekend’s showdown on HBO between rising Mexican star Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Puerto Rican-born Kermit Cintron, which takes place in Mexico City.

Both fighters acknowledge the history of the rivalry and wear their respective nation’s colors with pride. As far as Saturday goes, though, the motivation of beating the guy in from them is enough.

“Of course (the rivalry) always motivates me. There are a lot of great champions from both sides through the years,” Alvarez (38-0-1, 28KO) admits, though with a twist. “But I’m motivated because I’m fighting a very good fighter. He’s a good fighter with a lot of experience. The level of competition is what motivates me.” [Click Here To Read More]

He better ko the champ because he will never win a decision in mexico. They will not allow the paper champ to walk without his title.
