Juan Manuel Marquez: I Don't See Canelo Beating Floyd

By Miguel Rivera

Four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is still siding with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) to defeat WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Marquez faced Mayweather in September of 2009 and lost a very one-sided decision. There have been many upsets in 2013. Marquez, as a Mexican, hopes Canelo is able to win but doesn't believe an upset is going to happen.

"Defensively speaking [Mayweather] is the best. He makes it very difficult to land your punches, he is very elusive. You start to get desperate and he leverages this desperation to connect [his counters]. Canelo is not going to be any exception. Anything can happen above the ring. We already saw this with Jhonny vs Abner Mares, where nobody expected Jhonny to win. We hope the Mexican [fighter] can win. He needs a little bit more of experience. He has the opportunity to show that he is a great boxer. I can tell you that upsets are sparse and based on that I don't Canelo can get [the upset]," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=Rolaz;13704573]Most of Mayweather's opponent usually aims at hitting the head/face of Floyd Jr., and they failed. Now it's gonna be different if Canelo's aim is the BODY! [/QUOTE]BINGO!!! the Canelo team has given away their game plan on episode 2…
