Saul “Canelo” Alvarez seems to be on the path to becoming boxing’s next big mega star. The undefeated Mexican fighter sports boyish good looks, red hair and a freckled face that makes him appeal to not only Mexican fans but a worldwide audience. With his beating of Josesito Lopez a few weeks back at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, Alvarez has his sights set on Floyd Mayweather Jr. The young champion has been wanting a match up with the pound for pound best for over a year now, though many are jumping into the conversation that the young Alvarez may be getting way over his head. This fight may be of interest like when you bet, bet on NFL football but let´s focus on the story.
As you can see from our other boxing interviews, Alvarez’s colleagues such as Paulie Malignaggi, Cris Arreola, and now Alfredo Angulo all think the young champion is not ready at his current form to face someone the caliber of Floyd Mayweather Jr. Angulo, who himself is in Alvarez’s same weight class comments on the potential fight as well as sporting a new hair style. Can we be seeing the start of the “Angulo inspired” hairstyle fad that will sweep the boxing nation? We hope not, but hey it works for him.
