Saul Alvarez isn’t concerned about being favorite to win the clash with WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto next month. Rather, he’s trusting in his training. Former WBC super welterweight champion, “Canelo”, says this important commitment against the Puerto Rican on November 21st at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas is crucial for the advancement of his own career.
The Mexican is considered by several specialists and some boxing fans as the favorite, but regarding this statement, he is keeping both feet on the ground: “I can’t trust in that, I don’t trust in bets. I only care about training 100% and continuing working hard. I will continue my job as I have done for being ready for my commitment with Cotto.’ Regarding his fight, the 25-year old commented that Cotto is a complete and seasoned fighter, and strong.
So, for that reason he’s focused working on his power, speed, combinations and defensive skills, Puerto Rican and Mexican fighters have always offered amazing fights. Alvarez, aware of the historic commitment, pledged: ‘Without any doubt, I know I have a great responsibility for all those great fights between Mexicans and Puerto Ricans. I think that is here, inside the gym where you take responsibility for the commitment.’
