Alvarez vs Mosley media workout pics
WBC light-middleweight champion Saul Alvarez and Shane Mosley opened the doors to their respective Big Bear gyms yesterday as they invited the media to see how preparations were coming along for their May 5 clash.
‘Mosley is a complete fighter that is what I liked about him watching him fight when I was a kid. He is a great fighter,’ said Alvarez. ‘He is 40 years old and fights like a 25-year-old.’
‘I am preparing for a great Shane Mosley. It will be a great fight and I look forward to having my hand raised as the winner.’
Mosley also commended his opponent but was quick to point out that he lacked experience, saying, ‘Canelo has a good style with his hand speed, power and he is young but he still has a lot to learn.
‘May 5 is kind of like my holiday. I seem to fight this day every year. I will be very hungry, focused, strong and willing to scrap.’
