Alvarez sees a knockout and a great fight against Triple G
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Canelo Alvarez was just Saul Alvarez back then, a red-haired 15-year-old who wanted nothing more than to make some money boxing.
He got his chance on a summer night in 2005 in a suburb of Guadalajara, Mexico, where he grew up. His opponent was another teenager named Abraham Gonzalez, but he could have been anyone.
Alvarez showed some potential by stopping Gonzalez in fourth round. Afterward he collected his first real payday.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Oscar De La Hoya had no desire to watch Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s victory over Conor McGregor last weekend. Neither did middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, who smirked at the idea of taking the time away from his family.
"I just thought it was a fraud, and I still think it's a fraud," De La Hoya said Monday.
