Canelo is the younger, stronger fighter but Cotto has been revitalized his career and style under trainer Freddie Roach. Canelo had this to say about the fight.
"I have had great sparring partners for this fight, focusing on Cotto's style of fighting." Canelo said. "We also know he is a southpaw and that has been something we always work on. I am not afraid of any fighter, but right now I am focused on Cotto. Once this fight is over we can move on to the next big fight. Every fight at this level has been difficult and the best that we can do is, be prepared. You can't predict the outcome of a fight, but we make sure to leave not doubts in the ring. I want to fight the big fights and am not afraid to take risks. I believe my fighting style and opponents over the years have shown that. I am here to prove I am the best and the best way to do that is fighting the best."
