Prior to the epic battle against Khan, Canelo weighed in on Donald Trump. “I don’t really like getting into political issues, but it hurts, it offends,” Alvarez said. “I would like him to understand us. When I’m out running, I see a lot of my countrymen working in the fields. They have not come here to rob and steal. We want to show him that we Mexicans come here to work hard and succeed and be victorious.”

Canelo also weighed in about his fight against Khan saying: "As for everyone calling this a fight between his speed and my power, opponents don’t realize how fast I am until they get in the ring with me."

Amir Khan is expected to make at least $2 million. “I’ve always wanted to be in a big fight, but if it was against someone who was too heavy and unbeatable, then it would be a problem,” Khan said.

“But I sat down and saw a few fights of Canelo’s and thought, ‘You know, this guy’s beatable. The last guy to beat him was Mayweather, who outboxed him and beat him."
