Mayweather Breaks Down Canelo's Biggest Win, Trout

By Rick Reeno

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) is not overly impressed with the unbeaten record of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs). Mayweather explained, in detail, why he isn't impressed with Canelo's April decision win over Autsin Trout, who was coming off a decision win over Miguel Cotto. Mayweather won a tougher than expected unanimous decision over Cotto in May of 2012.

Canelo defends his WBC/WBA junior middleweight titles against Mayweather on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Cotto was not 100% for that fight. He was just coming off training for the biggest fight of his career, against me. He thought Trout was just a tune-up," Mayweather said.

"Trout, he didn't beat Cotto at 100%. It might have been more impressive if he knocked Cotto out. Cotto thought he was just a tune-up and he didn't take him serious. And the fight was close, it could have went either way I thought. Trout got a close fight against Cotto, but who else has he fought? I didn't even know who he was. Sometimes guys can overlook guys. Trout came in, fought one fight, made some noise - and as easy as he came in is as easy as he [was out]. Trout is solid but he is not Floyd Mayweather. Trout is no Genaro Hernandez."

"I fought Miguel Cotto, not his brother. I fought Ricky Hatto when he was undefeated and I didn't let him go the distance. I fought Shane Mosley coming off one of his biggest wins. He had a belt and I didn't even want it, I said 'keep your belt.'"

[QUOTE=Warring Don;13734540]If you watch the 24/7 Cotto was training his hardest for Floyd. If you watch the face off when Cotto was asked how would he beat someone like mayweather who trains so intensely, Cotto said train HARDER. Cotto got…
