Canelo Alvarez in decline?
Heading into this fight, Canelo Alvarez has answered questions regarding whether he has started to decline. The short answer? No, he has not, and he hopes to show that against Jermell Charlo.
“I feel great. I feel ready for this fight,” said Alvarez during his pre-fight press conference. “Yes, Jermell is right, I have nothing to prove. But especially this time, I have something to prove to him, because he never believed in my skills. He always calling me out, never believing my skills, and now I have the opportunity to show him my skills, and that’s motivating me. I had a really great camp, and I’m ready to show everyone my skills, my real skills. Thank you. See you Saturday night.
“I always train 100 percent, I always motivate myself, but in this fight, even more,” continued Alvarez. “I have this motivation that he never believed in my skills, he was always calling me out. I’m ready to show him in a couple days.”
