Two-weight world champion Canelo Alvarez is predicting the judges and final bell will not be heard as the Mexican plots a devastating ending on May 5th.
The 27 year-old battles middleweight king and Pound for Pound number one Gennady Golovkin for a second time in the spring after the pair shared the spoils controversially back in September.
Despite being the underdog, Canelo is sure he can end the fight before the scorecards come into play and give fans another reason to doubt his victory.
“Everyone already knows what happened. I made it my fight and I think I won it but at the end, the judges saw it as a draw. For that reason this second fight will be more interesting, more important,” Canelo told ESPN Deportes.
“This time the judges will not have to decide the result with their scores. I’m going to win my fight by knockout, I’ll be ready to win that way,” he added.
Canelo was criticised for ‘running’ against ‘GGG’ last time around at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas but aims to give the paying public and those watching on HBO PPV more to shout about in the return.
“I will be in my best shape. I’m going to have a great fight and I’m confident of winning. And I know that this will be a more interesting fight and that people will enjoy it better than the first,” Canelo promised.
The winner of the contest, still without a venue despite the clock ticking, has been linked to a fight for all the 160 marbles against Billy Joe Saunders later in the year.
Saunders enhanced his reputation across the Atlantic considerably with a dominant display against David Lemieux late last year and hopes to entice Golovkin or Canelo over to the UK in the late summer.
