Saul Alvarez: Hatton is a No-Hoper, I Cannot Lose!

By Chris LaBate

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is giving Saturday's opponent, Matthew Hatton, no shot at victory. He predicts a brutal stoppage at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. They face off for the vacant WBC junior middleweight title. Hatton, the registered underdog, is moving up in weight to face Alvarez at a catch-weight of 150-pounds, but there are new reports the fight is going to take place at the full division limit of 154.

“I will not only beat Matthew Hatton but I will also make it look good,” said Alvarez to 97.1 Radio. “He is a complete no-hoper – I cannot lose. I know his strengths and his weaknesses and I will expose them. He says I am inexperienced, but I have had 36 fights and that is enough experience. I have been unbeaten in all of them and I will remain unbeaten after winning my first world title by a knockout.”

[QUOTE=EngorgedW/Blood;10183158]Lol I feel bad for Matthew Hatton. As a pro boxer, he is being highly disrespected by every one, all the fans, every one is dissing him, calling him a bum and all that. Well, I have a thing for…
