Cázares, 30, defeated former world champion Julio César Chavez jr last Friday by unanimous decision on a card behind closed doors in Tijuana, northern Mexico, and pointed out that after that victory he feels he is ready to surpass Álvarez, one of the top three pound-for-pound boxers in the world.
“I am going to knock down his freckles, they will be scattered in the ring and I am going to tell a janitor to lend a dustpan to his coach, Eddy Reinoso, to pick up the freckles,” said the undefeated boxer mockingly. 12 fights, five of them won by knockout.
The possible fight of Cázares with the ‘Canelo’ is not seen close, but Cázares assured to have received calls according to which perhaps the lawsuit could be soon, for which he is prepared.

“I am a natural 168 pounds (super middleweight), but with ‘Canelo’ we would fight in whatever division he wants. I am not going to put conditions because whatever the weight, we are going to beat him, “he added.
Cázares explained that he is not looking for money in boxing because he already has it, but he is interested in glory and leaving his mark on boxing. “I am interested in knocking down the freckles to ‘Canelo’ and that Reinoso picks them up,” he reiterated.
The fighter described himself as an athlete with a straight life, interested in his improvement, who carries the notebook of his studies in his backpack.
«This (last Friday’s victory) meant the birth of a new profile, with a straight life, with values and leadership. We must be an example because society responds well to examples, “he added.
