Mexican boxer Saul Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KOs) gave an interview after defeating Briton Callum Smith (27-1, 19 KOs), Sports.kz reports.
“We did a great job preparing for this fight, although there was a long downtime. I am happy to return to the ring and defeat a guy who is bigger than me. Yes, he is strong, but I showed what I am from the first round. I proved that I'm the best in the world.
I enjoyed performing at 168 pounds. The achievement that I have won belts in this category is one of my best. I would like to combine belts here, I want new challenges. It's my goal.
Is my third fight with Golovkin possible in the future? I only want to fight with the best. If I have the opportunity to fight, I will accept it. I have shown that I am ready to fight with the best," Canelo said.
