Former three division world champion Felix "Tito" Trinidad of Puerto Rico is calling it straight when discussing the fall showdown between his WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto and Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Trinidad is not swayed by Cotto's recent opponents and seems more impressed with the recent level of opposition being faced by Canelo. Since suffering back to back defeats to Austin Trout and Floyd Mayweather Jr. - Cotto blasted Sergio Martinez, Daniel Geale and Delvin Rodriguez.

The fight takes place at 155-pounds. The weight on the night of the fight may play a role in the contest. Canelo is sure to rehydrate at outweight Cotto, who is even considered small for 154-pounds.

"I wish the best to both, but it's a big possibility for Canelo to beat Cotto," Trinidad told Alex Figueroa. "If it was 157 or 158, it would be better for him (Cotto). But at 160 [and above], it is best for Canelo, because Cotto is not a middleweight."

"Actually, it's a battle where physical conditioning will be very essential. From what I've seen in recent fights, Cotto has he fought boxers who are not of the same quality as the that Canelo has had. [Delvin Rodriguez] is not a boxer elite. Martinez had injuries to both knees. Now comes the fight with Geale, who is actually a boxer who is little more dangerous at 160 and fought at 157. Those three pounds he knew [would drain him] ... and then [Geale] went up a lot of pounds [on the day of the fight], but two days before [the fight he was] weak. He was not 100%."

"Canelo beat (Austin) Trout, (Erislandy) Lara and knocked out (James) Kirkland. He has fought three class boxers. Cotto has not fought the same quality of boxers. The experience is with Cotto, but it is necessary to have experience, proper condition and desire to win ... But that day in Las Vegas, the Mexican public will be present ... And the public often gives you that little extra. Who knows what might happen."
