Mosley: Not Only Can I Win, I Think I Can KO Canelo

By Salvador Rodriguez

Neither the youth nor the boxing ability of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (39-0-1, 29KOs) is intimidating to former three division world champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley (46-7-1, 39KOs). Alvarez defends his WBC 154-pound title against Mosley on the Floyd Mayweather-Miguel Cotto undercard on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

After losing to the two best fighters in the world, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Mosley still believes that he has enough left in the tank to not only beat Alvarez - but to do it by knockout.

"Canelo says that if he can knock me out, it would be a real accomplishment. But, I'm going to go out there and win, and I think that I can knock him out. I didn't take this fight for the money, but because I want to be champion again. The fighter who arrives better prepared, physically, will have the advantage," said Mosley.

To further promote the fight - Mosley, Canelo and Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar de la Hoya will hold a press conference later today in Chapultepec, Mexico.
