“What Canelo lacks to be an idol is drama,” says Mauricio Sulaimán

Mauricio Sulaimán y Canelo Álvarez

The only thing missing Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez To establish himself as an idol is a dramatic fight, as some fans like to see gladiators and lions in the ring, but boxing has already evolved and it is not like that, considered the president of the CMB, Mauricio Sulaiman.

“What the Canelo to be an idol is to fall to the canvas, have a dramatic fight, something happens to him, “he said. Mauricio Sulaiman in an interview with LEFT PUNCH. “Unfortunately it is what often gives the public that change and adopt someone as an idol.”

But with the Canelo Alvarez It is something difficult to see, because due to his great level on the ring, his fighting style and dominance of his rivals that fight has not been given.

“What he lacks is the drama,” he added. Sulaiman Saldivar. “He is a great boxer, with an impressive technical level, he is in a great moment of his career, everyone recognizes him. He has a great technique, strategy, he is a careful boxer, a stylist … many people live in the past, they want to see gladiators and lions in a ring and it is not like that, boxing has already evolved ”.

Added that Canelo, thanks to his work, has caused criticism to be less and less, as happened last May 8 in the AT&T Stadium from Arlington, where he beat in eight rounds Billy joe saunders, and to beat Caleb Plant It will ratify that union with the people.

“That day he turned around so necessary that he had Canelo to be sheltered by the public, “said the leader of the CMB. “The fans were completely given over to him and it was a radical change from all those difficult years before a sector, now he is much more recognized and without a doubt one more victory gives him all the level of legitimacy he needs.”

Canelo, looking to become an idol

From Saturday’s fight at the MGM Grand from Las Vegas Come in Canelo and Caleb PlantHe said that it has all the ingredients to make it important, interesting and historical, especially for the Mexican if he manages to unify the four most important titles of the super middleweight.

“It is a fight with elements of uncertainty,” he considered. Mauricio Sulaiman. “You have a boxer at his natural weight, undefeated, who is very hungry, and the Canelo who seeks to be the first to unify the super middleweight, he would be the first Latino and continue with all the records he is setting, he is going through his best moment ”.

The winner of said combat will also receive a special trophy that the CMB He delivers twice a year, in the biggest fights. This time the handmade jewel is the Teotihuacan Beltor.
