Trout: Canelo hasn’t developed his man strength yet; I’m taking his belt

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14 KO’s) doesn’t believe that the 22-year-old WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KO’s) has developed his full power as of yet, and still isn’t strong enough to defeat him when the two meet up on Showtime on April 20th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Trout said to Fightnews.com “I don’t think he [Canelo] has developed his man strength yet. I will impose my will on him…I took the belt from his older brother [Rigoberto Alvarez], and I am going to take his, too.”

Canelo: I’m prepared to beat Trout in a convincing fashion

Web-P3142309 WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KO’s) plans on leaving no doubts as to who the better fighter is in the ring when he faces WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14 KO’s) next month at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Canelo said to esnewsreporting.com “I’m preparing to win in a very convincing manner.”

Canelo will have the crowd solidly on his side for this fight. There’s already 30,000 tickets sold for the fight with a little less than a month to go before the April 20th fight. We could be looking at over 40,000 fans packing the Alamodome, and very few of them will be Trout’s fans.

Canelo-Trout on target with 30-day weigh-in

Web-P3142517 Both WBC junior middleweight champions Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and WBC champion Austin Trout were on target with their 30-day weigh-in for their April 20th fight at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Both Trout and Canelo weighed in at an identical 166.5 lbs. for the 30-day weigh-in.

At this point it’s not about taking weight off for either of them. They can sweat the 12.5 pounds off to get down to the 154 pound weight limit on the day before the fight. At 166, these guys aren’t huge for the junior middleweight division like say Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is for the middleweight division.
