Margarito To Alvarez: Canelo Can't Help You, I'm Ready For War!

By Miguel Rivera

Former world champion Antonio 'Tijuana Tornado' Margarito is ready for a war with world ranked Ramon "Inocente" Alvarez.

The fight takes place this Saturday night at the Baja California Center in Playas de Rosarito and Azteca 7 will televise the contest for millions of households in Mexico.

Margarito (39-8, 27 KOs) vs. Alvarez (23-4-2, 15 KOs) is a twelve round super welterweight contest and will have the WBC Americas world title at stake. The card is being staged by Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions.

Alvarez, 29-years-old, has made his camp in his native Guadalajara, Jalisco - and he's been supported by his younger brother, Mexican superstar Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez. Canelo, who is training to face WBO 154-pound champion Liam Smith on September 17, is doing everything possible to help his brother prepare in camp.

Margarito, 38-years-old, trained for three months in San Diego, California and once again he was coached by Mexican-American Juan Estrada.

"We're closed very strong preparation on Saturday. In May [against Jorge Paez Jr.] we were working on explosiveness and speed. I feel much better than I was in my camp before Paez jr. I'll win and I'll do my job," Margarito said.

"Only me and Ramon will be in that ring - not his brother, nobody else in his family.  We are ready for a war and the public is going to really enjoy this."

In May, Margarito returned to the ring for the first time since December of 2011. He had to survive a knockdown to win a decision over Paez Jr. The ultimate goal for Margarito is to land a major fight in near future. Alvarez's brother, Canelo, is at the top of his list.

What is it with comments like this? This is "boxing", you know hit and not be hit. It's not called the sweet science for nothing. Go watch a Rocky marathon if you want entertainment...
