The 27-year-old Aztec fighter admitted that after the verdict “I was sad, because I didn’t want it to end in a draw; I felt like a winner, but that’s how boxing is ».

According to Álvarez, a person close to him made him reflect when he told him: “This is good because it was a great fight,” and that allowed him to feel “very happy” with his performance and to understand that “the most important thing is that people want to see the rematch”.

“I try in my fights that the public comes out happy and that I too can feel satisfied with what I do,” added the Mexican. Also with some fights carried out “he lost a bit of fondness” for the discipline, but fights like the one he starred in with the Kazakh Golovkin less than two weeks ago “returns to boxing credibility.”
