Canelo over Cotto
WBC middleweight world champion Canelo Alvarez spoke to the press after his unanimous decision victory over Miguel Cotto. “First of all I want to thank everyone,” said Canelo. “I am very happy. I am a blessed man.
“I felt I had him in the first round, I felt superior to him. I was stronger than him, I was able to move around very, very well and control the fight. I felt I was winning the fight. I made him miss a lot. From the opening bell I felt I had the advantage and was going to win the fight…I wanted a clear victory. I didn’t want any doubts.
“I feel really good, very strong at this weight. I can make the weight easily and the results are there. This is my weight class.
“Before the fight they asked me a lot of questions about Golovkin and I didn’t want to answer because I had respect for the person I was gonna fight tonight. Now they can ask me. I know Golovkin very well. He’s a friend of mine and like I said before and I’ll say it again, I have respect for him but I’m not scared of him. I will fight anybody, anytime.”
