Default Saul Alvarez - The ginger mexican

He beat the poorer of the Cotto brothers, was 32-0-1 last night having turned pro at 15.

Is he the next Mexican sensation? I bet JC Chavez Jnr is losing sleep

Last night he looked like a guy who's used to beating up poorer opposition, and didnt enjoy an opponent fighting back.

Very surprised Cotto pushed him back. His body shots & uppercuts on the inside caught my eye, needed to do more body shots when he done them you could tell Cotto didn't like them but he didn't pick up on it.

he was in real trouble in the 1st round against a bigger puncher he may have been ko d but he did box well in the later rounds and he does look a decent prospect
he will get plenty of exposure considerin the team who are promoting him and i for one am lookin forward to seein more of him

Like Johnny Nelson said he will get his "manstrength" in the next couple of years, Cotto looked a bit flabby and apart from the first round didn't look that interested. The kid has Cristiano Ronaldo's face and John Arne Riise's hair.
