Mares: Canelo's Big Mistake, Trying To Box Mayweather

By Rick Reeno

Former champion Abner Mares was ringside on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and he was very surprised with the fight strategy of WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs), who dropped a one-sided twelve round decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mares expected Canelo to apply the same kind of pressure that Miguel Cotto used against Mayweather in May 2012. Instead, Canelo tried to outbox the man regarded as the best boxer in the world.

"That's what I saw [Canelo was trying to outbox Mayweather]. He was trying to outbox Mayweather. You can't outbox a boxer, especially one like Mayweather. To me he didn't do any adjustments.....and if anything he made the wrong ones - like going forward without the jab, he forgot about the jab. He wasn't throwing enough combinations or putting in work or testing Mayweather in any sense. Canelo didn't give him any kind of fight or give the kind of pressure, like Cotto, to even see if Mayweather would tire out in the later rounds," Mares told BoxingScene.com.

Golovkin would put Canelo into coma in 1st round. Canelo sucks.

[QUOTE=dc3383]Canelo isn't a pressure fighter so that wouldn't work either; he fought his fight.[/QUOTE] This. He came out and hung for a short time until Mayweather does what he does best, and figured him out and dominated. Mayweather looked outstanding Saturday night. Canelo looked like a go...

[QUOTE=freudianslip]Finally someone with some sense comments on the short comings of canelo. I completely agree how are you going to outbox the worlds best boxer when your only real advantages are your youth and strength not necessarily your ring intelligence.[/QUOTE] Except he is the LAST guy...

[QUOTE=BennyST]He doesnt need to mentally break them down. Just frustrate and outbox them. Margarito would never have troubled Floyd at all. Not for a round. Way too slow. You saw easily Pacs speed dealt with him, now just add in that Margarito wouldn't have hit Floyd once cleanly and wouldn't ha...

people are acting surprised that Floyd shut Alvarez out there were no signs going in that Alvarez could be competitive he's not a bad fighter, but just not good enough to hang w/ Floyd the guy wasn't even able to look impressive against Trout Alvarez woulda lost no matter what strategy he tri...
