Image: Paulie Malignaggi Questions Canelo Alvarez's Hunger

Boxing specialist Paulie Malignaggi feels that Canelo Alvarez has actually lost a few of his cravings and ferocity at this phase of his profession

Malignaggi concerns whether Canelo (60-2-2, 39 KOs) can manage Jaime Munguia’s mix punching and high volume in their fight on May fourth at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

If Canelo no longer can type between the shots that Munguia, he’s going to have issues, and he may lose. That would be a bitter tablet for him to get beaten by a fighter like this, who isn’t on the level of David Benavidez, Caleb Plant, Diego Pacheco, or David Morrell.

Canelo, 33, will protect his undeniable very middleweight champion against the starving unbeaten Munguia (43-0, 34 KOs) in their headliner on Cinco de Mayo on Amazon Prime Video and DAZN PPV.

Savvy however less relentless

“I see a fighter that is pleased with his profession, and pleased with the cash he’s made and the success that he’s had,” stated boxing specialist Paulie Malignaggi to the Probox TELEVISION YouTube channel about Canelo Alvarez.

“I see a fighter that is not as starving as he was in the past and disappointing the ferocity that he was revealing at one time in his profession. You can see a few of those things dissipating and the desire to go all out. But he’s still a smart veteran.

“He understands how to survive battles and win them at a high level. A guy like Munguia, who is active, starving, and defensively flawed, can make this an enjoyable fight due to the fact that he brings activity to the ring. He tosses mixes in lots.

“Those are the examples that Canelo doesn’t constantly like to see and to handle. Does Canelo have the capability to type between Munguia like he’s revealed many times in his profession.

“Can he do it in between the punches of Munguia, who can toss a little large when he tosses those huge salvos? Is the power of Canelo going to remove the self-confidence to toss those salvos, or is Munguia going to attempt and run right through him?” stated Malignaggi.
