Mayweather Expects Canelo To Be Easier Than Cotto

Jhonny González, campeón Pluma del Consejo Mundial de Boxeo (CMB), no se niega a darle la revancha este año a Abner Mares; sin embargo, afirmó que no hay nada cerrado ya que sus promotores aún están en pláticas con gente de Golden Boy Promotions.

“La revancha ya no depende de mí, es cuestión de mis promotores y de que las cosas se vayan dando, yo estoy listo para cuando me digan que enfrentaré a tal o cuál rival, con una buena bolsa de por medio y yo me voy a preparar”, dijo a RÉCORD.

El capitalino consideró que una pelea tan rápido podría no ser la opción adecuada para Mares, a quien el sábado pasado derrotó por nocaut en un round, no obstante, sabe que esa decisión le corresponde al tapatío y a su equipo de trabajo.

“Si yo fuera él, no aceptaría la revancha inmediata por la magnitud del nocaut, porque después de una derrota así uno no está bien anímicamente, pero si sus promotores lo están pidiendo pues adelante, hagamos la pelea”, recalcó.

El ‘Bombardero’ está en busca de mejores bolsas ahora que volvió a ser campeón, por lo que Abner  no es la única opción en su futuro boxístico.

“Hay otros nombres que me están manejando como Nonito Donaire, Miguel Ángel ‘Mikey’ García, posiblemente podría unificar con el vencedor de la pelea entre Orlando Salido y Orlando Cruz, hay buenas opciones”, precisó.

Jhonny se reunirá este sábado con sus promotores para hablar sobre sus posibles rivales.

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) expects Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) to be an easier fight than Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30KOs) of Puerto Rico. Cotto was Mayweather's last opponent at junior middleweight. On September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Mayweather will head up to a catch-weight of 152-pounds to face Canelo for his WBC/WBA junior middleweight titles.

"When I really look at the fight, I ask myself questions about the fight and I ask myself questions about Canelo. Is he tougher than Cotto? I don't believe so. I don't believe he's tougher than Cotto, I don't believe he hits as hard as Cotto and I don't think he has the experience that Cotto has. Cotto was very strong. You see Shane Mosley, who was 40 years old, take [Canelo] the distance. Then you saw Matthew Hatton, Ricky Hatton's brother, take him the distance. You have to look at certain things. Is Matthew Hatton a better fighter than Robert Guerrero? Absolutely not," Mayweather told Mundo Deportes.

Floyd knows whats up. people get fooled by Cotto's fight against Trout and forget Trout won that because he was way bigger and Cotto had a bad camp.

There is no doubt that a lot of work is needed from Canelo's side in terms of preparation... breathing technique, fitness, homework the list goes on. Floyd has perfected his art... so everyone that steps in the ring with him..…

[QUOTE=Carpe Diem;13701679][B]Cotto was more fleet footed against Floyd than Canelo was against Trout.[/B] Canelo showed good head and upper body defense, but he was heavy on his feet. I think Canelo will put on a better display against Floyd than…

Cotto did well in that fight against Floyd because Floyd fights at a measured pace so does Cotto and Canelo actually does also. However Cotto was taking what Floyd gave him without really pressing the issue too much even though…
