World champion in four weight classes, Saul Alvarez considers the Mexican mentality to be one of the most powerful weapons in the ring.
“The mentality of the fighters from Mexico is that we never give up, always give our best and go to the very end. And that is what plays a huge role,” Canelo told ESPN.
“But for me, ‘Mexican style’ is not only a continuous exchange of punches, knockdowns and stuff like that. No, I don’t think that’s exactly the case. There are many styles in Mexican boxing. Remember the same Gilberto Roman: he moved very well . We have a whole galaxy of fighters who profess radically different styles. As for me, Mexican boxing is when you know how to move, strike, but do not miss in response. “
Recall, on May 8, at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington (Texas), Alvarez will fight with undefeated WBO middleweight title holder Billy Joe Saunders.
