Saul Alvarez: If Rhodes is Open, I Will Go For The KO!

By Miguel Rivera

WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is going through his final runs in training camp, preparing for this Saturday's initial defense of his crown against mandatory challenger Ryan Rhodes in Guadalajara. Alvarez respects the size and power of his opponent. Rhodes had previously fought at 160-pounds and moved down in weight. The British boxer believes that he is a lot stronger than Canelo, who also feels that a knockout victory is within reach.

"Rhodes is a very good fighter. He's very strong and put his punches together well. When I watched his fights, I could see that he was a strong fighter. We have a good strategy worked out for the fight. I'm going to be in the best shape of my career. I won't run from him. I know what I have to do and If see an opening, I will go for the knockout," Alvarez said.

[QUOTE=toysale;10686534]Can see an upset on the cards here, Rhodes is going to make it very difficult for Alvarez throughout the fight and reckon Rhodes may push for a late stoppage! Cards already out the question.[/QUOTE] If the fight is close…

If you go for the KO, you'll get countered and end up taking a nap.
