Saul Alvarez: I Could Be Ready For Pacquiao in One Year

CANELO ALVAREZ, WBC Super Welterweight World Champion, Open Workout Quotes For Ryan Rhodes Showdown on June 18 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

"Oscar de la Hoya recommended I train in Big Bear and I really liked it.  It was a really good place to train.  I could really focus up there with no distractions."

"Training camp went by really fast because I love my job.  At times training at home is a distraction, so training in Big Bear was a really good change.  I had a good camp."

"It took me about 10 to 15 days to get used to the altitude.  It was rally hard to breathe, a 25 minute run felt like an hour."

"Rhodes is a strong fighter and is going to be tough.  He can take a good punch and he's awkward because he can switch hit."

"I want to give Jalisco the best 'Canelo' I can.  I'm excited to defend my title in Guadalajara in front of my people."

"I consider it an honor to be compared to the 'Golden Boy' but I obviously have my mind set to accomplish much more.  Records are made to be broken and that is my goal."

"My goal is to be the best fighter.  To be the best, you have to challenge the best, and I think I could be ready for Pacquiao in a year."

JOSE "CHEPO" REYNOSO, Alvarez's Manager and Trainer

"I liked having training camp in Big Bear.  It was really good preparation and we had an intense camp.  You can tell he's really confident and focused right now."

"We are all very excited to return to Mexico.  We are ready to be there and fight in front of our people."

"We didn't do anything else besides train, watch film of Rhodes and watch movies.  We  rented over 105 movies."

"Rhodes is a complicated fighter.  He switches hands and is very strong.  We worked hard to overcome that."

EDDY REYNOSO, Alvarez's Manager and Trainer

"Camp was really good and the challenge of dealing with the altitude made it a more intense camp, but ultimately the challenge made it more rewarding."

"We implemented a lot of exercises that really increased the velocity of his punches.  We also worked a lot to improve his defense."

"We sparred over 100 rounds and trained really hard."

HBO Boxing After Dark will televise this 12-round World Championship bout, which is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions in association with Hatton Promotions and sponsored by Corona, DeWalt Tools and AT&T beginning at 10:30 pm ET / PT.  The co-feature will be a showdown of two of the top young super featherweights in the world, when unbeaten Adrien "The Problem" Broner battles Jason Litzau for the USNBC title in a ten round bout which is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with R&R Promotions, Roy Jones Jr.'s Square Ring Promotions and DiBella Entertainment.

[quote=boxingfollower;10677729]canelo would get the asswhooping of a lifetime, no threat to pacquiao what so ever, even in 2 years. Styles make fights and his style is just wrong, all it would be for him is a big payday.[/quote] not only…
