WBA / WBC middleweight title holder Saul Alvarez claims that despite his status as the undisputed favorite, he will not underestimate the next rival, Avni Yıldırım, of Turkey.
“It won’t happen. I feel superior to Yıldırım, but I train like it’s my biggest fight. Underestimation is out of the question. I know that this is boxing, and one punch can change everything. I’m not here, to underestimate someone.
I will not deny that I am the favorite, but boxing is a very difficult sport. I think Yildirim will be a good opponent. He is a great boxer and I think we will put on an exciting fight for the viewers who attend the boxing show or watch it on TV, “Saul Alvarez said.
Recall that the fight Alvarez – Yildirim will take place on February 27 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
