Press Release: With the world 154-pound championship fight between WBC champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and WBA champion Austin Trout coming up this weekend (Saturday, April 20th) at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, other boxers promoted by Golden Boy are weighing in with their predictions for the fight. here is what they had to say:

"I am going with Austin Trout, but he has to go in there and box.  He can't let Canelo Alvarez warm up too early.  If he drops hard punches, he'll pull it off."- Danny Garcia

"Gotta go with Canelo Alvarez.  He's young and he's a mentally and physically strong person.  Also, the people (fans) make him better." - Fernando Guerrero

"Canelo Alvarez is very hungry to prove all the doubters wrong.  Both fighters have tremendous heart and will give fans a night to remember.  Canelo has developed nicely and I'm giving him the edge in this fight based on pure desire.  His body attack  will be the difference.  Canelo wins by mid-fight knockout." - Robert Guerrero

"I think Austin Trout will win because he has a better skill set and he's a better boxer." - J'Leon Love

"That's going to be a really exciting fight being that Canelo Alvarez has never faced a champion in his prime.  Austin Trout is a difficult fighter that just beat (Miguel) Cotto, but I think Canelo should win because he's younger and has a statement to make to let the world know that he is the real thing as a younger and hungrier fighter." - Abner Mares

"I'm going with Canelo Alvarez because he's more powerful.  I think Canelo can win by knockout if Austin Trout is willing to exchange shots." - Daniel Ponce de Leon

"This is a good matchup for boxing.  You can't go wrong with either fighter.  Its two top fighters at the top of their game.  I'm in the gym with Canelo Alvarez, and Austin Trout is my friend, so it is hard to pick." - Peter Quillin

"I think Canelo Alvarez is going to win.  He comes forward.  It's going to be hard for Austin Trout to take Canelo's pressure and handle his strength.  Trout will make it difficult for Canelo, but I think he will win." - Leo Santa Cruz
