WBA 'regular' junior middleweight champion Erislandy Lara believes the body language of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, following the conclusion of the twelfth round of their fight, indicates the Mexican superstar felt he was down on the cards.
"Canelo and his team knew they lost the fight," Lara stated.
But Canelo didn't lose the fight last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Lara was seen as the winner by one of the three, with a 115-113 tally. Another judge had Canelo as the winner with a 115-113 tally. And judge Levi Martinez submitted a score, that many have criticized, of 117-111 for Canelo.
