Canelo Vows 'Real Fight' Mayweather-Pacquiao Wasn't

By Keith Idec

Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez doesn’t think there’s any additional pressure on him and Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto to produce a memorable action fight following the anticlimactic, maligned Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao bout.

Alvarez didn’t hesitate, though, to promise that he and Cotto will provide the type of great entertainment Mayweather and Pacquiao didn’t deliver when they meet November 21 in Las Vegas.

“This is a guarantee,” Alvarez said through a translator on a recent conference call. “Without a doubt, this is a fight. We are both coming to win. We are both going to fight. We are both going to lay it on the line. Without a doubt, this is a fight for real.”

Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) and Cotto (40-4, 33 KOs) will fight for Cotto’s WBC middleweight title in an HBO Pay-Pay-View main event at Mandalay Bay Events Center.

[QUOTE=NEELZ;15973258]To the Floyd fan, any fight where Floyd does not get Koed, he dominated. Floyd doesn't actually have to land any thing telling from his end. The Canelo Floyd fight was boring because Floyd is very evasive and he didn't…

Mayweather/Canelo wasn't either .... And you were to blame. (I'm sure someone has already said something like this I didn't read through the thread)
