LOS ANGELES - Hundreds of fans turned out on a Tuesday afternoon to witness up close and personal Mexican boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez, fan favorite Alfredo "El Perro" Angulo and four other world-class action fighters for a jam-packed press conference hosted by Golden Boy Promotions to formally announce "TOE TO TOE: Canelo vs. Angulo,'' a fantastic four-fight telecast on Saturday, March 8, on SHOWTIME PPV® from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Joining the popular main event fighters at the Los Angeles Central Public Library Outdoor Plaza undefeated Two-Division World Champion Leo "Terremoto" Santa Cruz, former Three-Time World Champion Cristian "El Diamante" Mijares.

In the co-feature of an all-action pay-per-view undercard,  unbeaten WBC Super Bantamweight World Champion Santa Cruz (26-0-1, 15 KO's), of Los Angeles by way of Huetamo, Michoacán de Ocampo, Mexico, will defend his title against Mijares (49-7-2, 24 KO's), of Gomez Palacio, Durango, Mexico

LEO SANTA CRUZ, Two-Division World Champion

"I'm very happy and I'm very prepared for this fight.  Mijares is a great fighter.

"When I was in the beginning of my career, I used to see him fight.  I once sparred against Jose Navarro to help him fight against Mijares.  I watched that fight and I know that he's a great fighter that will give me a tough fight.

"We come 100 percent ready and we're trying to the fans a great fight.  Hopefully, it's one of the best fights of the night."

CRISTIAN MIJARES, Former World Champion

"I'm very happy to be on such a big card like this, in the co-main event of the big fight between Canelo and Angulo.

"I'm motivated because I'm coming back. I know it's going to be a very good fight against Leo Santa Cruz because he's a very good fighter.

"I'm motivated.  I'm coming here to win, I'm coming here to be a world champion.  I'm not going to give away anything.  I'm expecting to win.  It's going to be a war. That's all I've got to say."

After seeing what southpaw Cesar Seda was able to do against Leo i like Mijares's chances in this fight. Southpaws just might be Leo's poison.

[QUOTE=Golovkin]I am not a fan of moustaches but I still don't know if Leo looks better with it or without it. Great kid regardless though.[/QUOTE] Leo looks candid and funny.
