Once again the two nations will compete in the ring when Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Matthew "Magic" Hatton clash for the vacant WBC junior middleweight title on March 5th at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. This afternoon, "Canelo" worked out in a gym in Los Angeles, and Ricky Hatton, the older brother of Mathew, was present.
- How do you envision the fight between Saul Alvarez and your brother?
"It will be another big fight, my brother is well prepared and very happy to receive this opportunity, to come to fight the United States for the belt of WBC. He trained a lot, did good things to improve and is ready to win. It's a very big opportunity, Matthew is confident that he can win. He's champion of Europe, although it will be a tough fight because Saul Alvarez is bigger physically. We know that Alvarez is stronger and bigger, but we'll rely on speed, throw combinations, move, go in and out, and with that I think we can beat Saul Alvarez."
