"We trained like we've never trained before. I feel good physically and mentally. I'm anxious to be in the ring. I wish it were here tomorrow...He knows it's going to be a tough fight. That's why he talks and acts like he does...I can assure you he won't beat me," stated undefeated jr. middleweight champion Saul Alvarez in the latest episode of All Access: Mayweather vs. Canelo, Showtime's all-access reality series following WBC welterweight and WBA jr. middleweight champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather and WBC jr. middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez as they prepare for their September 14 showdown at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Episode 3 was not short on quotes from both fighters, so check out what else Canelo had to say!
On the 152-pound weight limit and whether or not he wanted it...
That's a complete lie. They wanted me to drop weight. They were the ones crying about the weight. Makes us laugh. It's just talk. Pure talk. They know very well that they're the ones that wanted the fight at this weight.
Canelo's trainer, Eddy Reynoso, on comments made by Leonard Ellerbe...
Ellerbe is so smart. He had the supposed best pound-for-pound fighter go up 5 pounds. That motherfucker. What are they talking for? Don't underestimate your enemies. No one is invincible. You should be careful, thoughtful, and keep your mouth shut
We're going to win because we have the stronger boxer. We have a very talented boxer.
On September 14th, the new king of boxing will arrive.
Canelo on the fight and why he's confident he will win...
I'm ready. If the fight was tomorrow, I'd be ready.
We're watching Cotto vs. Mayweather. Cotto fought well in some of the rounds. He had a good strategy.
Cotto lost to Austin Trout. And I beat Austin Trout. That's why I'm so confident. On September 14th, I'm going to shock the world.
On his preparations for the bout...
I'm on a diet. It's what you need to eat to be healthy and to be able to work hard.
We trained like we've never trained before. I feel good physically and mentally. I'm anxious to be in the ring. I wish it were here tomorrow.
He knows it's going to be a tough fight. That's why he talks and acts like he does.
I can assure you he won't beat me.
