CANELO ALVAREZ, WBC, WBA, Lineal and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Champion:
 
"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."

SERGEY KOVALEV, Current WBO Light Heavyweight World Champion and Three-Time Light Heavyweight World Champion:

Kovalev is very lucky in getting this fight. He's facing one of the most popular and top pound for pound boxer in Canelo. The good thing is he has all the advantage in winning this fight...

Comment by Corelone on 09-19-2019

Canelo is better skilled than Yarde, but he's just too small. He's a short middle weight and at 175 everything will be against him. If he was bigger I'd bet the farm, but depending on the odds, I might bet…

I'm picking the Krusher for this fight! I think Canelo should have tested the waters at 175 first before facing Kov.. This will be Errol Spence vs Mikey Garcia all over again. Kov is too big! I expect Canelo's chin…

Unless Kovalev suddenly goes over the hill, Alvarez is going to have a hard time on his hands. Could be a Pacquiao-Margarito type affair.
