When asked about the prospect of facing Trout in front of more than 30,000 fanatical fans Canelo added: “I’m really excited for the San Antonio fans, as well as all the Mexican fans who will be there supporting me. I’m hoping I can give them a great fight.
“The key for me is patience. I know he’ll be ready for me at all times. It’s going to be a complicated fight, but I’m prepared for it. The more intelligent fighter is going to win on April 20. We’ve mapped out a game plan and we’ll stick to it. I’ve looked back at some of my past fights and I’m critical of how I’ve performed. I’ve taken criticism, but all criticism is constructive and I’m taking it all in.
Alvarez knows he is facing the toughest fight of his unbeaten 41 fight career, even talk of facing pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr will not distract him.
“I’m not concerned about talking about (Floyd) Mayweather or anyone else,” said Alavarez. “I’m just focused on this fight. If he didn’t want to sign [to fight me], that’s on him. After this fight we will talk about Mayweather and whoever else.”
