About Mayweather vs. Cotto & Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs. “Sugar” Shane Mosley
Good Fight Night My FB Kings; we are just hours away from the bloody deciding factor of who gets to go home with the bragging rights of a World Title or a long tail between their legs, eyes to the ground loss! Being Beverly Cooper Boxing I have the great privilege to write about what I want to… interview who I want to… that being said… yes, the Mayweather vs. Cotto fight is the highlight of the evening. Do I have any predictions? Against one of the best pound for pound fighters known as Floyd “Money” Mayweather.. No of course not. My Mama taught me; If you don’t have anything nice to say.. Keep your mouth shut.
I wish both men, Mayweather and Cotto a clean, dare I say FAIR fight. I’ll leave the talk to the rest of you. Frank Bruno said, “Boxing is just show business with blood.”
I am without a doubt all in for the Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs. “Sugar” Shane Mosley throw down. Both of these men trained right here in California USA. Boxing trainer Able Sanchez runs ‘The Summit’ boxing gym in Big Bear, California. “That’s where many stars past and present come for their training camps.” Mosley has been extremely relaxed and focused for this fight. Might I say, laid back. The heart of my story is about Canelo. Do you realize this very young man is only 21? His record is 39-0-1 (29KO). Álvarez has fiery red hair and he was given the nickname ‘El Canelo’ (Spanish for cinnamon) by his trainer Jose "Chepo" Reynoso when he was thirteen years old.
Much respect to the entire team of Canelo! Mucho respeto al equipo entero de Canelo! Not only is this team hard working, determined, well managed and humble but they actually care about this sport I love; Boxing! Not just for the money involved but the integrity of this sport!
Jose “Chepo” Reynoso Quotes: “Mosley is very dangerous. He knows that by defeating Canelo he would become a World Champion again. It’s a fight for a World Title. Mosley has defeated every Mexican fighter. No one has ever knocked out Mosley. I think its time that Canelo faces the monsters; the important names in boxing. Now I think he is ready to fight Mosley and knock him out. He is also ready for Mayweather, Cotto and Manny Pacquiao.
We are making history. Fighting Mosley is an historic event. I believe in destiny. But I know.. you have to look for it. Canelo is here because no one has given him anything. It’s the product of our work.”
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez Quotes: “Mosley is one of the best fighters and it is an honor to fight him. To me its like a dream to fight someone who is a legend. I have dreamed of becoming a fighter just like him. I never imagined that one day I would fight him. I want to be one of the best fighters in history.”
The final outcome will be between: age, strength, heart, stamina, enthusiasm and the hunger to be victorious (Canelo) vs. age, strength, heart, stamina and pure innate skill (Mosley). No prediction other than the better boxer will win! Am I walking the middle of the fence on this one… hell yes! This will be a final story for one.. And a new life changing story for the other! Being a woman of a certain age I have mad respect for Mosley. I know what the daily physical and mental grind it takes to be a Champion like Mosley. As far as Canelo.. Age is on his side. Not just in this fight, but for powerful longevity in this sport! Rezo para una lucha limpia y justa. ¡Puede el mejor triunfo de hombre!
