We've got Shane!
You've got a distinctive edge in experience over Alvarez, how will that help you?
It's going to help me a lot, being that I'm in great shape.
What do you think of the other fight on Saturday: Mayweather-Cotto? Who wins?
I think Mayweather wins, but I think it will be a very good fight. Tough fight.
Have heard a lot more aggression coming from you than usual, what has made you HUNGRY again?
The negative press. I need to teach people a lesson.
Shane, are you obligated to give Canelo a rematch if you win?
I don't think he'll want a rematch.
Yo suge, canelo's camp thinks you're shot. I still think you've something left in the tank for a stoppage. Do you think you're being overlooked?
I don't think their camp believes that. I think that's Golden Boy Promotions. But I do believe I'll get a stoppage.
hi Shane, it seemed to me that your punch output in the last 3 fights was quite a bit less than years past. Do you agree? If so, do you plan on throwing more frequently vs a young guy like alvarez?
The other fights I had, I was hurt going into camp, but yeah I will throw more punches.
How will you take advantage of Canelo's youth?
By my experience of being a fighter.
How's your health?
My health has been great.
how long have you been training?
I've been training for a long time. I've been training my son and some other kids, so I've been in the gym for a while.
Shane, Do you plan on pressing the attack early by attempting to land your right hand because we all know Alvarez has a suspect chin?
I have so many weapons that I can use. The left hook, body shots, there are so many attacks I have. When I get in there, I'll figure out which one to use.
Sugar, Despite the result of your Saturday fight, will you consider retirement or that's not on the horizon for you?
It's not yet on the horizon.
What's your prediction for the fight? PAIN?
I predict that I will win pretty big.
How is your relationship Golden Boy Promotions?
I thank them, because they'll put a lot of money in my pocket.
Do you agree that boxing needs a Mayweather and Pacquiao match in order to survive?
I don't think that boxing needs that, but it would be a great thing if they did fight. There are so many great fighters in the boxing world, it's just that fans need to recognize, find out who they are.
What's Canelo's best asset, and how do you plan to neutralize that?
His biggest strength will be his youth. I believe I already countered that already through preparation.
In the Antonio Margarito fight, when did you become aware that Margarito had been caught with illegal hand wraps? Did Brother Naz tell you before you went out to fight him? And did that provide you with additional motivation to give Tony a beat-down?
Before I walked to the ring.
Your son looks like a longer version of yourself. Will you let him box professionally?
Yeah, of course.
Shane, I'm honored to be chatting with a living legend. Is there any particular weakness you see in Canelo that you plan to exploit. Thanks, good luck, and God Bless.
I think there are a lot. He gives you a lot. He doesn't move as much. Probably his weakness will be his age, not being experienced enough.

If you got a shot at Mayweather again, what do you think you would do different?
First thing, I won't be injured before the fight. I won't let him hold me when I catch him with a good shot.
How great of a trainer is Nazim?
I think he's a great trainer for a lot of different matters. He has a great knowledge of the sport.
Shane, I remember the last time people were writing you off. You answered the critics by putting an absolute beating on Margarito. Do you see any similarities between that fight and the Alvarez matchup this weekend?
It's a big similarity. The only thing is I think I'm better prepared for this fight than for Margarito.
Will you stay at 154 or go back down to 147? face maybe the winner of Berto/Ortiz or Alexander?
I think I'll stay at 154. It seems to be a great weight for me now. I feel great.
Will this fight go the distance?
It depends on how well he's trained. But it won't go the distance.
You once said that your ideal weight would be 150 lbs. Did you feel drained going into the Pacquiao fight at 147, and do you feel at all at a disadvantage at 154?
I don't feel that I was drained, but I was injured before the fight, before the training camp.
who is your favorite Boxer of all time?
I think when I was coming up it was Sugar Ray Leonard. That's when I started fighting in 1979-80, he was a champ.
What's up Shane. What do you think of my boy Andre Ward from Oakland? Gold medalist and still undefeated.
Yeah, I love the way he fights. He's a great fighter. These are the types of fighters that the fans need to take a look at and realize there are a lot of great fighters out there. Andre Ward.
