Canelo, Josesito Quick Quotes

9 days from their highly anticipated Mexican Independence Day Weekend world championship showdown in Las Vegas, undefeated WBC super welterweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and challenger Josesito Lopez hosted an international media conference call.

Josesito Lopez: The more people don’t believe in me, probably the better for me. I think that makes victory that much sweeter….he’s going to look a lot bigger, but we trained hard, worked hard, we had big sparring partners in our training camp to get used to the heavier weight. We prepared well so that I’m stronger than ever.

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez: I don’t feel any pressure (to get a knockout against a smaller fighter). I go into every fight to do my work and don’t think about that….Josesito is a very good fighter. He knows to to pressure, how to counterpunch, but I think I’m going to be prepared for everything.
