On the undercard of the HBO pay-per-view for Floyd Mayweather vs. Miguel Cotto, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez took another step forward in his development by dominating the faded "Sugar" Shane Mosley.
Alvarez was able to land heavy power shots throughout the fight, pushing Mosley back and hurting him repeatedly but never being able to drop him and get the knockout. Canelo also had to deal with the first cut of his career, a nasty opening over his left eye coming off an accidental headbutt early in the fight. It turned out not to bother the 21-year-old, undefeated Mexican fighter as he continued to come forward with heavy leather.
To Mosley's credit, he fought hard all 12 rounds, trying to make something happen. But, in the end, Mosley was just too slow defensively and was reacting to punches a good second after they'd already gotten in. He suggested that he may retire from the sport after the fight ended.
