Today Golden Boy Promotions and Televisa held a press conference in Mexico City for WBC super welterweight world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez against Josesito Lopez on September 15 in Las Vegas.

Canelo Alvarez: Fights are won with hard training and I should not underestimate any opponent. I always prepare to fight anyone put in front of me and I’m ready for anyone!

Josesito Lopez: No fighter is unbeatable and we must find a way to win. I’m going up in weight, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes to win. I’m Mexican-American with Mexican blood and fight like a Mexican.”

The conference was also attended by WBC featherweight champion Johnny Gonzalez and WBO former world champion Daniel Ponce de Leon, who collide in the co-feature.

Daniel Ponce de Leon: Johnny is a very strong champion. I’m training hard for a great fight.

Jhonny Gonzalez: I want to face the best fighters. Ponce is one them!
