"Sugar" Shane Mosley (46-8, 39KOs) showered Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (40-0-1, 29KOs) with praise and compliments. Canelo dominated Mosley last Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. After twelve rounds, Canelo won a unanimous decision with scores of 119-109, 119-109 and 118-110. Mosley, 40-years-old and a former three division world champion, showed a lot of courage but he also took a beating with Canelo landing 348 punches - the most blows landed on Mosley by any opponent.
Canelo says he is ready for Floyd Mayweather Jr., Miguel Cotto or Manny Pacquiao. Mosley agrees with the 21-year-old Mexican superstar.
"His defense was really good and he was really fast. He can go a long ways. When the kids start to beat you, you might need to start going to promoting. I didn't expect him to be that fast or that good. He's up there with the top guys [that I've fought]. Mayweather is fast, Cotto, all those guys I fought. He's up there with them," Mosley said.
