WBA ‘Super’ and WBC world middleweight champion – Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (51-1-2) said that he is preparing for the full 12 rounds of his upcoming clash with the IBF middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (35-2) this May 4.
The Mexican superstars one of the hardest punchers in the world, even though a lot of people still don’t see him as the real middleweight king because of his controversial draw and win over Gennady Golovkin.
Still, nobody can say that Alvarez is not a hard worker and there is no doubt that the ‘Miracle Man’ has to bring his A-game to Las Vegas on Cinco de Mayo weekend.
“All fighters look for the knockout. It’s always spectacular. I will go out there to look for it. But I will train for 12 rounds. If the opportunity for the knockout presents itself, I will take it,” said Alvarez.
“I accept the responsibility of participating in big fights like these. It’s an honor to represent my country the way others have.”
“This will not be my last fight at 160 pounds. It’s the weight where I feel best,” he quipped. “I will be here for a while. I would still like to have challenges at 168, but I’m fine at 160 pounds.”
