ALVAREZ vs. RHODES: SHOWING THEIR POWER IN PUBLIC TRAINING


 WBC News

The suffocating heat did not prevent people from watching the last training session of champion Saul Alvarez at Parque Extremo in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

The king of the WBC Superwelterweight division left a good impression on hundreds of fans due to his flashing speed of hands in the ring, which was previously used by his British challenger, Ryan Rhodes.

"I am happy to see all these people," Saul said. "I am going to show them that I am a true champion."

As fans were cheering, Alvarez punched the mitts under the guidance of his trainer, Edison Reynoso, and his fists looked powerful.


The training session was short, but it was a good example of what the southpaw Rhodes must expect.


"I will take the title home," Rhodes said as he wore the official jersey of the most popular soccer team of Guadalajara City, aiming to please Mexican fans.
