Canelo vs Mosley: Sparring Footage of Alvarez at Big Bear (Video)

Fight Hub TV got some footage of Canelo Alvarez sparring in California as the 21-year-old WBC junior middleweight titleholder prepares for his May 5 bout against Shane Mosley, the featured preliminary fight on the Mayweather vs Cotto undercard.


Alvarez (39-0-1, 29 KO) is currently about a -900 favorite against the 40-year-old Mosley, who is 0-2-1 in his last three and hasn't won a fight since January 2009. He's also fought just once at 154 pounds since 2006, when he beat Ricardo Mayorga in 2008.

The footage here doesn't show us a whole lot -- it's not like Canelo's going full speed out there or doing anything that would reveal his approach for the fight against Mosley. But I know folks like to watch this stuff for various reasons, and the guys at Fight Hub get great footage, so it's definitely worth a share.

Now that we're just a few weeks out, what's your feeling on this one? Has anything changed? Ryan Bivins laid out a good enough case that I no longer completely hate this fight, I just regular strength think it sucks. I still think the fight pretty much does suck, since I don't really believe Mosley has anything left, but I've come around enough to say, "Well, let's see Canelo prove it, since they're going to do it anyway." I won't be doing backflips about it when Canelo wins, which I'm sure the carnies at Golden Boy will push on everyone.
