Gomez: I Will Give Canelo Alvarez a Beating, KO Him!
By Jhonny Gonzalez
Alfonso Gomez was not amused with Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez calling him a 'clown.' During their press tour, Gomez dedicating a rap song to Canelo, which the young Mexican took offense to. Gomez vows that on September 17, at Staples Center, he will clobber Alvarez to capture the WBC junior middleweight crown. Gomez feels that a knockout is necessary to take Alvarez out. Getting a decision over the Mexican superstar, in Los Angeles, will be a tough task to accomplish.
"No more raps and conferences. It's time to train hard. I have the experience and I have skills. I'm no clown, I know it's in the gym where the fights are won, and I will give him a beating. I will not go out there to survive the rounds. One the bell rings, I will mark my territory. He is the champion, a spoiled child and I know I have to knock him out," Gomez said to Sal Rodriguez.
alvarez strikes me as the kind of kid that if he did lose a fight against a better opponent, hed just come back smarter, faster, and stronger. hell stick around.Comment by reneg_2 on 07-29-2011

I was super disappointed Gomez pulled out of his fight against JCC Jr. Gomez was the better boxer, but JCC Jr was going to have a massive size advantage (147 fighter vs 160 fighter). It was a good matchup. However,…Comment by chiguy91 on 07-29-2011
thing is with alvarez's recent opponents, like hatton, lovemore, and rhodes, they didn't try to hurt or stop him, that's why they all basically went to 12. j.cotto and baldomir wanted to touch him up and actually fight, look what…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (26)
