Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo Live Stream News 24/7 Hot, 2014 On March 8: canelo vs angulo live stream
Sometimes a fight just makes sense.
The last time you saw Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, he was stuck in quicksand. His punches seemed slow and inaccurate. His feet could never seem to shuffle him into the right place. His face displayed that special look of failure that a fighter gets when, despite his best efforts to catch his opponent flush, he only punches air canelo vs angulo live stream.
The baby-faced Alvarez, still a bright-eyed 23-year-old, canelo vs angulo live stream was not yet ready for the premier defender in the sport last September when he faced Floyd Mayweather. That much is clear. But things will be different against 31-year-old slugger Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo. Angulo be there to be hit.
He’s the rough and rugged type with a sturdy chin who punches hard like you just called his mother a mule. The problem, of course, is while his mother is most certainly not a mule, his determination to hurt the one who called her a mule makes it feel as if the the son of one is kicking you.
But Angulo doesn’t kick, he punches. And he punches like a mule kicks: hard and in succession. And mean.
In boxing, there are technicians, and then there are brawlers. Boxers like Mayweather make up the former. The late Arturo Gatti and Mickey Ward make up the latter.
Alvarez and Angulo are not exactly at either end of the spectrum, but they’re closer to the Gattis and Wards of the world than they are to the Mayweathers canelo vs angulo live stream.
The fight is scheduled for 12 rounds and should be riveting. Alvarez is younger and a bit more mobile. Both men have bricks in their fists, but Angulo’s seem made of harder stone.
It’s a classic crossroads fight: Alvarez, the blemished but still rising star, against Angulo, the hard-hitting menace who might be on the slide but will keep punching people for a living anyway canelo vs angulo live stream.
Yes, sometimes a fight just makes sense, and this one seems just the right fight at just the right time for both men. An Alvarez win would confirm that he is who everyone thought he was before his lackluster performance against Mayweather. An Angulo win would bring more big fights his way and add zeroes to the end of future paychecks.
Whatever happens will be important for the future of the junior middleweight division.
Watching Floyd Mayweather dismantle and toy with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez this past September at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, it was hard to tell why Canelo was being hailed by many as the future of boxing.
He will help remind us all of exactly why he was held in such esteem by dismantling Alfredo Angulo in his first fight since losing to the undefeated Mayweather.Alvarez (42-1-1) will face Angulo (22-3) on March 8 in a super-welterweight bout at the MGM Grand.
It is tough to predict how a fighter will react to picking up his first professional loss, but I don’t expect anything from Alvarez except for the 23-year-old to reassert his dominance.
He certainly has the right attitude to do that.
While preparing for his upcoming bout, Canelo offered up these thoughts, in the Miami Herald by Santos A. Perez, on coming back after his loss: “I’m very strong-minded; so, yes, it was a loss, but I learned a lot from it, and I just move on. I gained experience and move on. I don’t dwell on the past. Now I look forward to the future.”
This doesn’t appear just to be lip service, either. As Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole notes, Canelo built a gym in his San Diego home, and that “he’s been training maniacally.” Alvarez is giving off all appearances of a fighter more determined than ever to prove he’s still bound for greatness and not one who is questioning himself and his ability after a lopsided loss.
With an already-huge following, Alvarez has a bright future to look forward to. Still, a second straight loss would definitely dim that future. There is little chance of that happening, however.
Angulo is a bit of a desperate fighter at this point. He has lost two of his last four fights, including his last one, and both losses were by way of TKO.
None of this is what should have feeling Canelo so confident, though. This is an ideal matchup for him.In other words, Angulo is not going to bring the elite defense and counterpunching possessed by Mayweather.
These two boxers are going to stand toe to toe and duke it out.
As FightNight.com points out, Angulo is well equipped for this style of fighting: Still, this style of fight is Canelo’s comfort zone, and one the powerful youngster is not likely to be overwhelmed in.
This fight is going to look similar to the ones that helped Canelo build his reputation and star power. He is a slugger at heart, and he excels at that style. Combine that with the fact that he appears to be training harder than ever and that he is moving to an age where he should be hitting his athletic prime, and it all spells out a resounding victory for Alvarez.
