Saul “Canelo” Alvarez knows a big fight when he sees one and the Mexican pulled no punches in admitting that he “craves” for such high-profile bouts including the one he’s involved in later this year against a big-name fighter in Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico.
“This is a fight that I’ve been craving, I’ve been waiting for. Obviously it’s a fight with a lot of responsibility and I’m up for it. Like I do for all my fights, I train very hard and prepare myself,” Canelo said in an interview with John Dennen of boxingnewsonline.net. “These are the type of fights that I’ve always wanted, the big fights.”
The 25-year-old Alvarez, who is one of the rising stars in the sport, will be facing the veteran pugilist in the 34-year-old cotto Cotto on Nov. 21, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada in the United States.
