"I'm very grateful to all the fans as always. I'm very motivated here, it's an honor for me to share the ring with a fighter like Kovalev who I met in 2012. Now we're about to make history. I know it's going to be the most difficult fight of my professional career. I will give the best I have in the ring and that day we can yell "Viva Mexico."

I think this is a big test for me in my boxing career because this is one of the best fighters in the world in boxing right now. I'm happy and I am excited. Thank you very much for the support.
