Canelo: We Have The Right Strategy To Beat Kirkland

SAN DIEGO - Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) today hosted a media workout at the House of Boxing in San Diego in advance of his fight against Texas titan James "Mandingo Warrior" Kirkland (32-1, 28 KOs) on May 9 at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas and telecast live on HBO World Championship Boxing ®.

Oscar De La Hoya, President and Founder of Golden Boy Promotions, Canelo Alvarez' manager and co-trainer, Chepo Reynoso and head trainer Eddy Reynoso were all on hand for today's media day.

Canelo Alvarez, Former WBC and WBA Super Welterweight World Champion:

"I feel very happy. I am ready to fight tomorrow if needed. I feel excited that the fight is around the corner.

"Kirkland's style will complement mine, he is a fighter that likes to come forward and May 9 will bring a great fight for all the fans.

"We have the right strategy to beat James Kirkland. I have been sparring with southpaws to be prepared. Kirkland is a strong puncher, but I am also a strong fighter. On fight night I plan to hit hard but I also plan to fight an intelligent fight.

"I am very honored to have the first boxing event at Minute Maid Park, and I promise fans will not be disappointed. I train very hard to please all my fans. 

"I like to challenge myself, and I am not afraid to fight southpaws. I want to feel satisfied with myself, and I also want to put on fights that the people want to watch. 

"House of Boxing has always supported me, and I am grateful to Carlos Barragan (owner of House of Boxing) for supporting my career.

Canelo's strategy should be to take out kirkland asap and dont wait around. If it goes passed 4 rounds he will definately have trouble.:boxing:

Canelo should be able to knockout Kirkland pretty easily. He is so much faster and arguably has more power. A lot of people thought Anglo would trouble Canelo and he was destroyed.
