When they finally do meet Saturday night it will be with some hard feelings on both sides that didn't surface in the first fight. The 160-pound titles are at stake once again as the two fighters try to settle what they couldn't in last September's draw. His record of 49-1-2 with 34 knockouts includes victories over Shane Mosley, Austin Trout, Erislandry Lara, Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan, all world champions. Alvarez tested positive for clenbuterol and blamed it on contaminated meat from his native Mexico.

"At the moment I put him in the top five, and the only reason I don't put him any higher is because he needs that fight that people recognize, the signature fight or legacy fight", Sanchez said.
