SAUL ALVAREZ has warned Miguel Cotto not to compare their respective performances against Floyd Mayweather.

While in 2012 Cotto put in a combative showing against Floyd Mayweather, the pound-for-pound ruler dominated “Canelo” Alvarez in 2013. Mayweather won both encounters on points.

“That doesn’t affect me at all,” Alvarez insisted. “Styles make fights. Cotto might have done better against Mayweather but I did better against Austin Trout.” While they both lost to Floyd, Canelo beat Trout, who had handed Cotto his most recent defeat.
