Sulaiman: Canelo-Mayweather in 2013, No More Mosley

By James Blears

“Canelo has shown he’s ready to fight anybody. But to give him an opportunity to fight and win, I would recommend that no fight (with Floyd Mayweather Jr.) happen before one year from now.”

That’s the opinion of World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman about his organization's super welterweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Canelo is still at the tender age of 21. The Red Meteor, rained showers of punches down upon fading star "Sugar" Shane Mosley, last Saturday night on the undercard of the Mayweather-Cotto barnstormer at the MGM Garden in Vegas, last weekend. And during that fight, Mosley who’s 19-years Canelo’s senior, got plastered with more than 300 punches.

Sulaiman cautioned that it’s high time for Shane to do more than just ponder retirement. He explained: “Shane Mosley, having been such a great fighter, should start thinking about his retirement. The recommendation given to him from people of good faith, should be taken into consideration.”

Turning back to Canelo, Sulaiman enthused that Master Cinnamon showed maturity well beyond his years, by staying calm and focused, after getting cut after an accidental clash of heads, in the third round. And also employing noticeably greater strength, as well as effective pursuit to cut off the ring, and sink in a high proportion of pulverizing body shots.

Sulaiman said: “We have most definitely not yet seen the best of Canelo. He still has a lot to learn. I think he should rely more on his jab, which he only used very occasionally during this fight. The best is yet to come, and I think Canelo will be a champion for a long time. He’s just twenty one years young, and has a tremendous future.”

lol @ Sulaiman, shamelessly talking about Canelo as if he's his manager and promoter, just like he does with Chavez. We know he's the reason these guys are protected from the top contenders at their weights. WBC is an absolute…

[QUOTE=reneg_2;12103904]If you're still calling Canelo a hype train then you're an idiot. :bottle: Canelo showed he has improved. I also believe he should step up the competition to someone like Kirk, Vanes, Lara. It's obvious 99.9% of fight fans don't…

Since when is Sulaiman Canelo's ****ing promotor/manager? His statement that Canelo isnt ready for mayweather is valid but that is not his prerogative. Hes supposed to be over seeing the ABC trinket and ensuring that the best of the best…

[QUOTE=JKidd2624;12103316]More and more, everyday, I wish Jose Sulaiman would get hit by a bus. But when he opens his **** washer, like this, I want to go rent the bus that hits him.[/QUOTE] lol. . . . . . .…
