Kermit Cintron Hits Mexico: I Can Knock Saul Alvarez Out!

By Miguel Rivera

Nine weeks of hard training in Houston, plus two weeks in Mexico City, are optimal for Puerto Rico's Kermit Cintron, who challenges Saul "Canelo" Alvarez for the junior middleweight championship of the World Boxing Council (WBC). Cintron has arrived early to Mexico City to acclimatise to the conditions of this city.

"Nobody could beat me when I start at 100 percent," said the native of Puerto Rico, but residing in United States.

Cintron was accompanied by his trainer Ronnie Shields, and sparring partner Mike Lee. The former IBF and WBO welterweight champion has a lot of experience, with big name fights against Antonio Margarito, Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez and Alfredo "Perro" Angulo.

"Against Margarito I didn't have enough experience to beat him; against Martinez I think I did enough to win, but got a draw, and for my fight with Angulo I trained as hard as I am now, and that night I used all of my boxing and power to defeat him," Cintron said.

33-4-1, with 28 knockouts, Cintron had no hesitation in saying that he expects to become a world champion again.

"I would hate to have a long fight. I feel I can knock him out, but I'm prepared to fight for twelve rounds, and I expect to win by any means," Cintron concluded.

[QUOTE=PinoyZoi;11429740]big +++ for Alvarez stepping up his opponents. Now Chavez needs to step up instead of fighting cans.[/QUOTE] A champion stepping up is facing some washed up, psychological midget? Margarito clowned Cintron TWICE. Ages ago. This is no step up.

I think kermit is done. That said, if Jose Cotto rocked Canelos world, even a washed up kermit can ko him.

If cintron brings his A game he def can ko canelo, but after the mora fight which was his top rank debut, I doubt it. Arum is just tossing him to golden boy to feed canelo and get some money…

[QUOTE=ThePhantom5;11429716]Rhodes and Gomez said the same thing. Kermit might have the firepower. But can he pull the trigger?[/QUOTE] Canelo ain't "Speedy" Molina so Kermit can engage more freely. So in that sense he is a live underdog. Also depend on…
