How important is this fight for your legacy?

 

“I’m very happy with my career,” answered CANELO. “I’m very proud of what I have done in these roughly 13 years in the sport. I think I’m creating a legacy that is leaving me very satisfied. Obviously, I still have many years in the sport, but at this rate I am satisfied with what I have done.

 

“My objectives in the sport of boxing is to take advantage of my opportunities and to make history. I’m going to keep making the best fights. A career in boxing is short, and I want to do it well. I’m going to do my best and take advantage 100% in this sport to leave a great legacy, which is what I hope for.

 

“It’s definitely more personal now. I really don’t like him [Golovkin]. It’s personal, and I take it that way. It will make me train harder and give it the extra push to knock him out on September 15.
