He said, speaking on the possibility of a Bivol rematch: ‘Of course, everybody knows. We’ll see, we’ll see what happens in that fight.’
Canelo said: ‘It’s very important for my legacy, for me, for my pride, for my country, for my family, for everything.
‘It’s very important and I will beat him.’
‘I need rest. I need to come back and get strength back in my hand, recover my hand and get strength back in my body so I can come back stronger than ever.’
Alvarez was rarely troubled as his 40-year-old opponent, the current undisputed middleweight champion, struggled to match the energy and work rate of the title holder, who defeated Golovkin for the second time in three meetings.
