These quotes (and Photo) sent to us direct here at Doghouse Boxing. The following quotes are from Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.
"These fans motivate me to keep training and to get up in the morning and run.
"I want people to say that I came up from Mexico to the boxing world. It's a big responsibility for me because in Mexico there are a lot of legends. But our legends cannot be compared to any others. No two Mexican legends are alike.
"(Erislandy) Lara has talked a lot, [to the fans] you guys asked for the fight, and here it is. What you guys ask from me, I will give you.
"A lot have asked me, 'Why did you take this fight?' I say 'Why not? I will fight anyone. Style doesn't matter.'
"The reality is that a year ago the fans didn't really know Lara. Nobody really knew him. But he's been talking so much that now it's built up and the fans asked for it so I wanted to give them what they wanted.
"He disrespected me. But not only me, he disrespected all Mexicans. For him to be saying that he's going to give me a boxing lesson and he's going to take me to school...that's very disrespectful."
"Canelo vs. Lara," a 12-round junior middleweight fight taking place Saturday, July 12 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions and sponsored by Corona and AT&T.
