Combat sports fans were in for a treat on Saturday night after a full day of action. The night started with UFC on FOX 7 taking place in San Jose at the HP Pavilion, but when that bout concluded all eyes were on the Alamodome where Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Austin Trout were set to unify the WBC and WBA super middleweight championships.
The 22-year-old Alvarez came in to the fight with revenge on his mind, as he looked to avenge his brother Rigoberto’s loss to Trout back in 2010, but he would not let the emotions get the most of him.
Both Alvarez (41-0, 30 KO) and Trout (26-0, 14 KO) came in to the fight with unblemished records, but one man left with the first loss of their career.
There has been a lot of discussion about a Mayweather vs. Canelo bout later this year, but do you think the 22-year-old is ready for the major bout? Would you want to see the two square off in the ring? Sound off in the comments section and share your thoughts with us.
