By Salvador Rodriguez

The man who many believe did enough to defeat Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) on April 20, 2002 - Mexico's Jose Luis Castillo - believes WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) can do enough to unseat the pound-for-pound king on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It won't be easy and Castillo says the 22-year-old champion will have to use the right tactics.

"I did everything humanly possible to win that day, and I think I won the fight," Castillo said. "I demonstrated, I believe, that Mayweather was not invincible, but he is a great fighter. He is very complete, good stamina, fast. I think he should be in the top five in the world in boxing history."

"I think that my style was complicated for Mayweather, and I do not believe that it was only matter of luck for. Back then he was moving more and now he seems to stand in one spot more often. Canelo will have to work on covering [Mayweather's] exits so he can't get away. That gave me results."

"I think the weight advantage is in favor Canelo, if it does not affect him to come down to [152-pounds]. I hope he prepares very well because he will be going into the fight of his life."

[QUOTE=J The UnBiased]As far as the Paul Williams fight, that's laughable. Paul Williams, god bless him, but he's never been one of my favorites. His fighting style was plain idiotic and he had an even dumber trainer. Paul has beaten nobody to warrant a fight with Floyd, and as far as I can remem...

Canelo can defeat Mayweather? How? Certainly not by staying on the outside and trying to play chess with Floyd. No sir. I have yet to see Alvarez do anything except his cutey-pie power boxing routine and that simply won't get the job done. Team Mayweather knows who they're facing. That's why they...

Castillo is right about one thing: CLOSE THE EXITS In all of Jr's last fights he pot shots dips to his right and makes his get away. Cotto stopped that some Canelo must close them up or it will be another boring contest. Jr will do a UD on Canelo.
