Roberto Duran Advises Canelo To Maul Floyd Mayweather

By Miguel Rivera

Legendary boxer Roberto "Hands of Stone" Duran has advised WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) to maul Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Duran told Nacion the proper stategy that he would use if he was going up against Mayweather, stating that most fighters make a huge error by always trying to land shots on Canelo's head.

"If I was going up against a boxer like that, I would bust him up. I would bust him all over the place...the arms, the ribs. The first thing you have to do is forget about the head. The head is smaller than the body. You have to break a man down, and in order to do so you're going to hit him in the kidneys and he'll slowly begin to stop [his movement] and after four rounds he will no longer be able to walk," Duran said.
