The World Boxing Council super middleweight title is on the line when reigning champion Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez takes on challenger Avni Yildirim at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
Both boxers and those involved in this fight have given statements that promise an extremely competitive fight and therefore we recap the best words from both sides.
Canelo: “I am training hard as I always do, I am not underestimating my rival at all. I know this is boxing and one punch can change everything. It is not in me to underestimate anyone ”.
Yildirim: “Nobody gives the Turkish fighter a chance, but we will do our best to bring the belt to our country.”
Ahmet Öner, Yildirim manager: “Avni is strong and big. I believe in him. Avni has improved a lot since his loss to Chris Eubank. Without a doubt, Canelo is very strong, but he is not a God, he is a human being and as a human being he has his strong and weak parts ”.
Öner: “Avni will definitely bring this green and gold belt to the country. On February 28 it will show its quality to the whole world ”.
Eddy Reynoso: “Yes, he is a tough fighter, a warrior, a tall fighter, who is very complicated and with good power.”
