Canelo Alvarez

"I respect all fighters. I respect the challenger that’s in front of me right now. I know he’s a strong fighter. I know he has a lot of tools. I have the same mentality. I’m trying to do my job, and I’m trying to make history.

"I love being here. I love being in the gym. It’s my life. We’re going to take these fights fight-by-fight, and hopefully I can fight 4 times this year.”

"I'm focused on my rival. I know right now, this fight is the only one that exists for me, and I’m focused on what I have to do, my job."

Avni Yildirim
