In an interview with TV Azteca, the redhead showed respect towards his synodal, but said he was ready to face him and defeat him.
“We go with the best at 168 pounds, which is Callum Smith and that makes me very happy, because what I want is to get in the ring and continue making history for my country, for me, for my family”, He explained to the Mexican television station.
“(Smith) He is a fighter who goes ahead looking for a fight, who does not give you the opportunity to breathe, to put your rhythm. He is a fighter that it has many qualities, a lot of power too, but we are ready for this and for more”, He added.
Despite being inactive for a year, the longest in his career, the fighter said he was well prepared, as he has not stopped training and remains healthy.
“I always keep training, I eat healthy, I try to take care of myself and always be ready for what is presented, more when we are uncertain about what will happen. We have a month to go and we are ready to fight because we are a team that is always 100% training, this is our life, “he added.
Finally, about his recent break with Golden Boy Promotions, “Canelo” explained that it is something very positive.
“I am going to be able to do the best fights and now I am going to decide everything in my business and I think I will do much better. I trust in God and I have always said that what is done well cannot go wrong and we will do it better. In the end, what I want is to be able to work with all the promoters and to be able to make the best fights for the public ”, he declared.
