Canelo Alvarez explains why he changed his mind on fighting Mexican opponents, accepted Munguia bout

BEVERLY HILLS, California: For 13 straight bouts over seven consecutive years, Canelo Alvarez has refused to fight another Mexican. The biggest star in boxing said he respected his nation and its top talents too much to deliver any setbacks to their careers.

Alvarez has changed his mind, and the Guadalajara native will step in the ring May 4 with Tijuana’s unbeaten Jaime Munguia for his latest Cinco de Mayo weekend showdown.
