the more i admire him as a boxer. this is great stuff:

QUOTE
I am working to master my craft. I am obsessed with becoming the greatest ever to strap on a pair of gloves. This should be the mindset of each and every boxer that enters the ring. If you are not trying to become the best, then that person has no reason for wanting to become a boxer.

Most people will never understand the role of greatness. Greatness is not assumed, but it is worked for. Greatness takes sacrifices that will affect your friends and family. What is the reward of greatness? The reward is not always tangible, but it must not be taken lightly either. If you rise to the top to only be self-serving or egotistical with your opportunity, then you are a man that has squandered their talent for your demise. We have a responsibility as men to love.

Love and anger are closely tied together. We even see the wrath of God in the Bible tied closely to the love for his own people. When I state that we have a responsibility to love, I donít mean for that to be taken as a weakness but a strength that every man must possess in order to rise from his situation. Love takes fighting. True love takes wars. So when I relate to fear, love, and fighting, they are all hand in hand with their opportunity. I love boxing. I cannot fear another man to become great. I must fight to claim the love that I am obsessed with.

I actually think there's a possibility we could see that down the road. Floyd would probably make him fight Ishe Smith first or something. We already see how much the fans are demanding Mayweather-Canelo. I just think the value of a Mayweather-Trout fight needs to increase for Floyd to really consider it. But the ticket sales/views for Trout-Canelo/Trout-Cotto should definitely get Floyd's attention. I can't really say if i can see Trout beating Floyd until i see how Floyd performs on May 4. I give Floyd the SLIGHT edge. A lot of people like to discredit Floyd's win over Cotto saying how he lost a step without giving credit to Cotto for making it a tough fight. Rather than giving Cotto credit for being a solid opponent they say Floyd's legs are gone which i don't see because Floyd moved ALOT in that fight. Maybe not as much as he used to, but he moved ALOT. In fact Cotto MADE Floyd use his legs in that fight.

As for Trout, I've had the privilege of encountering him at the press tour and weigh-in for his Cotto fight. Very cool dude. He let the fans pose with his belt and all. lol Trout kinda reminds me of Sergio Martinez. He's earning his recognition the hard way, nothing was given to him but a fight contract. Yes he has Al Haymon in his corner but its obvious he's not getting the same push that Berto or Broner got. Trout earned the right to call himself a world champion.

And as for Canelo.. he needs to stop focusing on his next opponent after 4/20 and start focusing on the monster he has in front of him. But this will be a great fight.

i saw a few interviews where canelo stated that he isn't thinking about anyone but trout. he's going to need to pull out all the stops to beat trout. trout is a bigger, faster, slicker guy. it's going to be interesting.


He actually has mentioned Mayweather. I think Alvarez shot himself in the foot by not being on this May 4th PPV. He could of been introduced to a larger audience but that is what ego does to you.
