Joel Diaz Expects Figueroa To Blast Out Canelo's Brother

By Salvador Rodriguez

Trainer Joel Diaz is expecting WBC lightweight champion Omar 'Panterita' Figueroa to blast out Ricardo  'Dinamita' Alvarez in five rounds on March 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The card will be headlined by Ricardo's younger brother, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who faces Alfredo Angulo in the Showtime Pay-Per-View headliner.

Ricardo (23-2-3, 14KOs) has never been stopped and by capturing the title of Figueroa (22-0, 17KOs), Ricardo would become the third brother in his family to win a world title - with Canelo and older brother Rigoberto Alvarez being the other.

"Ricardo does not apply pressure, he doesn't box and takes a lot of punches. He is there to be hit and he's wide open a lot - while Figueroa is an aggressive top fighter who won't give him a chance to breathe, punches like an animal and is much better than Ricardo," Diaz said.
