Saul Alvarez will soon knockout Alfredo Angulo

Saul Alvarez spoke with the media on Tuesday at the House of Boxing in San Diego.

Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KOs) will battle Alfredo Angulo on March 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Planning to compete three times in 2014, Alvarez last vacated the squared circle on September 15 after getting universally outscored by Floyd Mayweather.

Although Alvarez didn’t perform poorly and consistently forced the action, Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) landed flush shots for 36 minutes that flustered and slowed the youngster.

"I learned a lot from the Mayweather fight, not only physically, but mentally,” said Alvarez, 23, who began boxing professionally at the ludicrous age of 15. “It was a great learning experience. This camp may not look that different, but I've been applying everything I learned into this camp and trying to refine some of the things I do.''

Conversely, the 31-year-old Angulo (22-3, 18 KOs) endured a brutal 10th round TKO defeat to Cuban Erislandy Lara in June.

Angulo, who represented Mexico at the 2004 Summer Olympics and once overcame Timothy Bradley in an amateur clash, twice floored Lara (19-1-2, 12 KOs).

However, the bout was halted shortly after Lara connected with a savage blow that fractured Angulo’s left orbital bone.

Lara’s an exciting brawler who lacks fear and demands respect.

Regrettably for the former Olympian, Alvarez is a powerful bruiser whose punches land with resounding thuds.

Still capable of maturing into an elite pugilist, it’s hard to envision that the fierce redhead will lose consecutive matches.

Plus, considering the severity of Angulo’s recent wound, Alvarez is likely way too potent for the older Mexican.

Ultimately, in another “great learning experience,” expect Saul Alvarez to capitalize on Alfredo Angulo’s aggressiveness and secure an empathic knockout.
