Canelo Would Knock Mayweather Out in Rematch, Says Gomez

By Lem Satterfield

Canelo Alvarez would be the first man to stop Floyd Mayweather Jr. if the unbeaten, five-division champion were to unretired for a 160-pound rematch of his 154-pound victory, Golden Boy president Eric Gomez said during a conference call on Tuesday.

“Oh definitely,” said Gomez, when asked if Alvarez would be the first to knock out Mayweather.

“Floyd doesn’t want any parts of Canelo Alvarez right now,” said Gomez of Alvarez, who is 8-0-1 with four knockouts since a majority decision loss to Mayweather in a September 2013 bout that dethroned him as WBA/WBC 154-pound champion. 

“Floyd took the fight at the right time. He knew that he was fighting a fighter that was very young, and didn’t have the experience. Floyd beat him with experience, .but now, it would be a different story. Floyd doesn’t want anything to do with Canelo.”

The 28-year-old Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) will pursue his third crown in as many divisions on December 15 against WBA “regular” 168-pound Rocky Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs) at New York’s Madison Square Garden while retaining his WBA and WBC 160-pound titles.

Alvarez dethroned Gennady Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) as WBA/WBC middleweight champion by majority decision in September’s rematch of their draw in September 2017 before signing a $365 million multi-fight deal with the streaming service DAZN.

Alvarez also owns stoppages in the fifth, sixth, ninth and 10th rounds over former champions Kermit Cintron (November 2011), Amir Khan (May 2016), Liam Smith (September 2016) and Alfredo Angulo (March 2014).

Alvarez appeared to express similar belief that he would win a return bout against Mayweather, although in a much more understated tone than Gomez. 

“I’m a more complete fighter now,” said Alvarez. “It’ll be much more competitive. I have more experience and I’ve improved a lot, so the fight would be different.”

[QUOTE=sterilizer;19304597]AFAIK, all 10 fight previous to Mayweather Jr, Canelo fought at 154 pounds. Then he is forced to starve himself into a skeletal super-drained inexperienced 152-pound rookie who worried WAY MORE about making weight than the training itself. Then comes…
