“He’s an up and coming champion against a legendary champion,” Mayweather said. “He has everything he needs to be a legend in the sport. This was just my night.”
“He’s very fast,” Alvarez said. “I didn’t really feel his punches. They weren’t really that strong. But he was scoring points.”
“I had a game plan, but he took me out of it and I didn’t have an answer for it,” Alvarez said. – nypost
