“[My team] tells me they want me to win. Canelo has his people. What he’s said and done has taken away a lot from him. Not to fight with Golovkin, his silly statements [on why he didn’t fight GGG], he threw the rope around his own neck. People are now leaning in my favor. I’m more sincere. I’ve fought better opponents,” Chavez Jr. said.
“Winning is the important thing. I will continue with my father’s legacy. I want it to be bigger, to be historical. To be champion, after my dad was the best of Mexico. He made me a great fighter. Canelo vs Chavez Jr Live It would be good for Mexican boxing. Canelo is disciplined and more consistent, but he always faces fighters where the circumstance are always in his favor.”“I feel good. We have worked hard. When I fractured my hand I was not been able to train. But right now, physically and mentally, I’m in top form. People want to see a fight and I’ll give them a good one.”
