Mexico.- After the victory of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez this saturday before Gennady Golovkin The uncomfortable questions for the Mexican came up again and it is that once again the topic of fights against Mexicans came to light, which already annoyed the man from Guadalajara who asked that such questions be avoided because he is tired of repeating the reasons for not competing against compatriots, but in case it wasn’t left out, he explained it again, making it clear that there is no more exposure of Mexico than him, since he already represents it in the world.
In a conference held days after the fight against the Kazakh, the Mexican attended the media, the blow he took from the fight could still be seen on his face, but what was a pleasant talk turned into a tense moment when the subject of fights with Mexicans came up and it is that we must remember that the “Lefty” Ramirez He has declared that he is interested in a fight with the man from Guadalajara, which has generated great noise in boxing.
Canelo assures that his refusal to fight with Mexicans is due to the fact that he considers that the representation of Mexico already goes with him, he does not have to fight with nationals to make Mexican boxing known when he assures that he has already been in charge of promoting it in all parts of the world and that measuring himself against compatriots seems unnecessary for his career as well as for theirs because he has nothing to prove.
“When I say that I do not fight with Mexicans, it is because I feel that I represent Mexico.. They can fight against Mexicans because it’s not the same as me, and I don’t want to sound arrogant, but I represent my country all over the world”, for that reason he sees a fight against them as unnecessary. He even assures that he has seen his face with the best in the world speaking of foreigners and he has beaten them and even so people are not satisfied with his work, which feeds the lack of desire to measure himself against a Mexican because if he wins they will criticize him for not being a world star.
“I’ve fought the best in the world, I’ve shot the best in the world. I’ve done a lot of things in boxing. Why do you think I’m not going to fight a Benavides, please? Listen to dad saying so many things , bad words and offending me, but what has your son done, fighting a world champion and all the other losing fighters. No disrespect to me with that please. Always in my whole life they have said, ‘he doesn’t want to fight with I win this fight and another one comes out, another always comes out. Don’t disrespect me, I’ve fought with the best in the world since I’ve been right,” said Canelo Álvarez.
