Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez He looked like an idol, but some fights and rivals will prevent him from conquering people and he will never reach that label, said the former world champion Alfonso Zamora. Added that Caleb Plant It does not have much to offer and will last six rounds maximum for the Guadalajara.
“Canelo It was already noted that he will never be an idol, “he said. Zamora in an interview with LEFT PUNCH. “He’s never going to be, he never could be because of his career strategy and what he’s already left behind, not to fight fighters who are really worth.”
When he started, Canelo had idol pasta, according to Zamora
The historical Zamora, the only Mexican who won an Olympic medal (Munich 72) and who later became world monarch, recalled that when he was a judge in some fights in Guadalajara he saw the Canelo as a future idol, which ended over the years.
“When I saw him fight 10 rounds in Guadalajara I saw him with a lot of idol paste,” he made clear Zamora. “I liked him from the beginning, but with the fights that he already gave very well, because really (Avni) Yildirim, (Sergey) Kovalev, that last Billy joe saunders they are fights very made to form ”.
“Plant is another menso”
On November 6 the Canelo will look for the last title he needs to be the undisputed super middleweight monarch when he faces Caleb Plant, something that to achieve would be historic for Mexico and Latin America. Nevertheless, Zamora consider that the rival will be the same as others and easy to beat.

“Today the fighters gain height by marketing”
Idols from before like Raúl “Mouse” Macías, Rubén “Púas” Olivares or Julio Cesar Chavez they are very difficult to find, he asserted Zamora. They who reached the top thanks to their blows in the ring, but currently, the former champion considers, the commercial matters more.
“Now for an idol to exist it is very difficult,” he added. Zamora. “Although people realize that kids make them want to, but they are very commercial. They are gaining height due to marketing and before it was based on chingadazos, based on the born faculties that you brought with you since you were born ”.
