Marquez: Canelo in Very Tough, But Can Win By KO

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four divison world champion Juan Manuel Marquez feels Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (43-1-1, 32KOs) has a very tough fight ahead of him as he prepares to face WBA 'regular' junior middleweight champion Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12KOs) on July 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Lara is a fast, well schooled boxer. And Canelo is one fight removed from losing a wide decision to another well schooled boxer, Floyd Mayweather Jr. last September at the same venue.

"It's a tough, tough fight for [Canelo] because of the style of Lara, but if [Canelo] comes in there with speed, closes Lara's exits and connects with hard punches as he often does, this fight the can end by knockout," said Marquez.

"It's very important, but [Canelo] must always be aware of the [counter-attack] of Lara, a Cuban fighter who hits hard and is accurate, so when he attacks he must do so with a certain amount of caution and he be aware that a response [from Lara] will always be coming. Canelo must fight smart."

"Lara hits hard, uses distance, has speed, but he does not have the punch to knock Canelo out, [and Canelo] does have [to punch to knock Lara out]."

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;14727714][B]When your opponents can't hit you hard enough (Mayweather,[/B] Trout) or often enough (Angulo), it makes for a different kind of fight than dealing with a fast, hard puncher. Lara punches hard and accurately enough to disrupt anything Alvarez might…

[QUOTE=northstar;14727945]Angulo is slower, but he threw caution into the wind and wasn't deterred from throwing hard shots (even though he was being pummeled). Also, what if Canelo hits him with his best punch and doesn't kd Lara? What will Canelo…
