Canelo opens up about training camp
With four weeks away from his September 17 challenge of 154-pound titlist Liam Smith, Canelo Alvarez is nearly midway through his training camp in San Diego and is amped up about fighting at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
“My training camp will last a total of seven weeks,” said Alvarez. “My focus is becoming a world champion-that’s the main purpose of this fight. To become a world champion one more time will be sweet and memorable. This victory would be for all my Mexican fans and those all over the world. On fight night, the fans can expect to see two explosive styles clashing in the first round. The iconic venue will be amazing that night and everyone will not be disappointed.”
“I know Liam Smith has a similar style as mine,” continued Alvarez. “He likes to trade punches and that will make a terrific fight. I don’t like to make predictions or announce my strategy. But one thing I can say is that it will be a fight to remember. I am planning a big surprise when I get into the ring. The fans inside the AT&T Stadium and those ones watching at home will witness something special.”
