Prime Avni Yildirim- The Pride of Turkey and mandatory challenger of the super middleweight Green and Gold Garland, has a “Wishbone Opportunity,” to become standard bearer world champion, when he faces up to “Mighty Mexican” Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez.
Although it`s a challenge of David Vs Goliath proportions, the Turkish warrior, has left no stone unturned and is hard rock sculptured, in his quest to accomplish the “Eighth Wonder of the World.”
This is what his coach and pillar Joel Díaz, declared to ESPN KO in the face of Avni`s daunting Labor of Hercules task…on Saturday night.
“We work hard, we come prepared and ready for everything. We will encounter a very difficult task, but we are going to fight! Never for one moment think we are on vacation. For Canelo is not going to enjoy or savour a picnic. Avni is a very strong man. He is motivated, he embodies the cast iron desire plus resolve to succeed. Don`t ever underestimate the Turk, because he comes equipped for war. Styles make fights. We must go in to hurt Canelo. All or nothing!!! We can’t and we won`t let this fight go to a decision.”
“We know that Canelo is the fighter of the moment, the pound for pound king and obviously we should not underestimate a monumental opponent, but sometimes surprises…happen. a king can be usurped! His throne can be stormed!
“They have already shared the ring and sparring, in two camps that Avni was embroiled in. Yet, in a fight, with smaller gloves, minus headguards, it’s markedly different, so I ask Avni: ‘Tell me, how did you feel, what are Canelo’s strengths’ and thus we know, our master plan, and we are so ready.
“Eddy is a great person, a great coach. He has a great team, you can see the product and the fruits of his labours, via Ryan Garcia with Campbell, and now Valdez. I didn’t think Valdez was going to beat Berchelt. It was a huge surprise he got the victory, but also the way and the nature in which he won, is a credit to Eddy Reynoso because Eddy devised that great plan, and he is the coach of the moment. So and accordingly, we ourselves plan WAR before PEACE.”
