Roach Does Not Rate Canelo

Freddie Roach says it is as plain as chalk and cheese that he doesn’t consider Saul “Canelo” Alvarez as a dedicated a student of the sweet science in comparison to his star pupil fighter,  WBC middleweight champion, Miguel Angel Cotto.  Both are studying hard and exercising without a break towards their highly anticipated clash on November 21st  at the  Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Roach has done his homework, with the opportunity of witnessing how the Mexican fighter works as Alvarez has trained at the Wild Card Gym for fights before

The famed trainer says:  ‘I know how his training camps are, as “Canelo” has trainedatn my gym for three fights and I don’t think he’s the most dedicated guy.  I  train a dedicated man, a man that is willing to do everything to gain the victory.  Miguel is in great shape for this fight.  His  physical condition is excellent.  The first rounds will be hard but as more go by, the bout will swing in our favor.  Our plan is to conserve energy for knocking him out in the later rounds.’

The 34-year old Puerto Rican is 40-4 (33 KO) over a 14-year career while the explosive Mexican has won 45 of his 47 fights with one loss and a draw.  The 25-year old has knocked out 32 of those opponents.
