With the countdown to Canelo vs Khan now underway, the Mexican warrior’s full media workout isn’t something to be missed. Canelo Alvarez, the reigning WBC Middleweight champion, will soon be sharing the ring with Amir Khan, a highly-skilled operator with lightning handspeed. Like Erislandy Lara and Miguel Cotto, Khan is considered an elite talent of today’s game.
FightHub TV cameras caught Canelo in action:
Canelo looked plenty dangerous as he blasted the pads in front of the boxing media, demonstrating his lethal head-body combinations. The hammer-fisted Mexican is a strong favorite going into this 155-pound catchweight bout, but is a Canelo victory an absolute formality? Could Britain’s Khan do the unthinkable, utilizing his superior speed and fleet-footedness to deliver a major upset?
Canelo vs Khan has captivated the boxing fandom, even stirring interest from the casual variety. It looks to be great for the sport, so let’s hope it’s worth the wait. The first bell chimes on May 7th, with the action set to broadcast Live on HBO Pay Per View and Boxnation. David Lemieux will be taking on Glen Tapia in the chief support, hoping to bounce back by claiming a notable scalp after being crushed by Gennady Golovkin last October. Curtis Stevens, another Golovkin victim, will also find himself on the card, taking on up-and-comer Patrick Teixeira.
