Saul Alvarez: I'm Confident of Beating Matthew Hatton

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Mexican star Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (35-0, 26KOs) is going through his final week of a hectic training schedule, before he winds things down for next Saturday's fight against Matthew Hatton (41-4, 16KOs) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The vacant WBC 154-pound title will be on the line. Alvarez is confident that he'll beat Hatton and return to Mexico with the WBC title around his waist.

"This was something we expected, since last year, when I said that I wanted to be a world champion. I was given the opportunity and I'm working hard. I'm not nervous because this is what I want. Any world title is special, but this one is more so because (the title) was in the hands of Manny Pacquiao, who is the best fighter of this decade," Canelo said.

"(Matthew Hatton) has an experienced team. I know he has 41 fights and lost only four bouts. He is a strong fighter and he knows what to do in the ring. It's a good fight, so we are happy, motivated and confident of victory and returning to Mexico as the world champion."

Not sure how I feel about Saul winning, I like the kid but I don't think he should be a champ just yet maybe end of next year for a title. He has improved, but then again does Matthew hatton…

And I can't believe I sh!tted on the Pac-Marg fight. This fight makes Pac vs Marg looked like Juanma vs Gamboa.

alvarez-hatton and chavez jr-zbik. the future is here! i look forward to many more mismatches as hbo manufactures these 2 darlings into superstars. (chavez jr-zbik isn't really a mismatch but they both suck so why are they on hbo?)
