Saul Canelo Alvarez

Saul Canelo AlvarezSaul Canelo Alvarez, There is a tendency for the exhaust keyboard to go overboard in search of deficencies in new pledges, the Phenom perhaps overrated before us as saviors in shorts. I will not go down that road with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. The guy who some say is the future of the game is a damn solid fighter. He showed a lot as against Ryan Rhodes in the main event of HBO Boxing After Dark show, which took place at Arena VFG in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico on Saturday night and did not lose a game on my card. Alvarez message was calm, cool and as he hit Rhodes with combos of 11 rounds, and closed the show in round 12 of the most one-sided relationship.

Canelo landed six shots, a couple of these decks for the body, Rhodes called back and then continued firing as Rhodes corner threw in the towel as the referee intervened upon termination TKO was 48 seconds elapsed.

That said, I would not put myself in the “Canelo is God” camp, because it is Canelo. His hands are strong, but perhaps not as strong as advertised. He did not angles as you might like, tends to stand up to her enemy, but his defense seems to be improving as a boxer is an expert in business use their feet to gain an advantageous position could very well against the child. But again, it’s a darned good fighter and there is much to like. I guess I warn everyone to be patient, not to fall into exaggeration, but not go overboard in holes, either.

Rhodes did not favor his legacy. He never really fought with the urgency of a man who presented with a fire in his belly, though due credit should be given Alvarez. Alvarez was 218-590, while Rhodes was 90-343 in the night, statistics wise. Canelo, through a translator, said that after he realized his body punches were working. He was asked about Miguel Cotto, Alfredo Angulo and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and said, “I’m really ready to fight anyone. If I have to fight the devil, I will.” In English, he said, “I’m ready for everything.”

Alvarez (20 years old, a month before turning 21, 36-0-1 with 26 K0s, Guadalajara) was 153 1 / 4 pounds, while Rhodes (34 years old, 45-4 with 31 KOs come, England) weighed 152 1 / 2 in this fight for the WBC crown Canelo junior middleweight.

Rhodes said that after he underestimated the power Canelo, and the body to attack him. “I’ve been beaten by a superstar in boxing tonight,” he said, saying he would not hang up the gloves.

Bob Papa called the action, along with Roy Jones for HBO.

In the first, Canelo downloaded with 35 seconds left after a prolonged feeling of the meeting. Rhodes went to left-handed at the end of the first, trying to be difficult. Coach Eddie Reynoso Canelo said to “relax” after the frame.

In the second, Jones made a point intelligently, Canelo praise for not being too enthusiastic in his hometown. Rhodes was again right, left-handed then. But I had to look to land anything significant, you might think, instead of potshotting occasionally, like him. Canelo looked relaxed and in the message.

In the third, Rhodes seemed more occupied with the jab. Cinnamon has a knack for catching the guys at the end of his shot, falling from a distance, and not falling in, and makes you vulnerable. He did knock down a few times in the third, but he took the round for the third consecutive time.

In the fourth, saw Rhodes hit the deck, with 50 seconds left. He stood, with strong legs, and reached the fifth round. He had a nick in his left eye. The damage occurred on the right hand that landed behind the head. Rhodes coach told him not to worry about after the fall, because you do not bet to win in the points anyway.

In the fifth, Alvarez saw the launch over three punch combos. Any observer of the struggle must, like his propensity for combos, right? If you wish to object, which tends to stay very still, instead of lying off a few, get a different angle and leverage. At this point, Rhodes was a disappointment, apparently there to be competitive, but not sending a message that came to Mexico to land a great disorder.

In the sixth, it was more of it and wonder if you ever switch to a plan Rhodes B. In the seventh, the left hook worked, the vaccine worked, the right cross the same: Canelo was the king of combos and Rhodes’s face looked a little older. A slice shown in his right eye. In the eighth, Rhodes slowed more. Canelo bodywork to harm me in Brooklyn.

In round nine, Rhodes hung tough; let’s say that for him. Canelo away with it again in the same tenth, as in all rounds before. The eleventh was the same way. Coach Rhodes said: “It’s like being knocked out in the last round, which has lost every round.” Canelo hammer out at 12, and the referee saw enough, finishing the fight on one side.
