3 Keys to Victory for Canelo Alvarez
At just 25 years-old, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez feels like a veteran. He boasts 46 professional career bouts and even more rounds boxed than his opponent, Miguel Cotto, who is 10 years his senior.
“Saul” is a bit of a formality; he’s known by most as just “Canelo,” the Mexican superstar who in 10 years only bares one loss, and has faced well-known fighters like Floyd Mayweather Jr., Shane Mosely, Austin Trout and Alfredo Angulo.
This isn’t the first time Canelo has challenged a boxing veteran, and all but one time he has come out victorious. He has the gifts of youth and power on his side to prove he can take the young guns and the seasoned fighters.
Here are three keys Canelo Alvarez must consider to beat Miguel Cotto this Saturday.
