“About the next fight, it should be a big fight. It could be Canelo, it could be anyone. Defeating Mungia will open the door to a big fight.”
“Yes, Canelo says he wants to fight Bivol next. But things are changing fast. Now they are talking about Bivol, and then they will not be able to agree, and the fight is already planned. And they will look for an opponent … “
“But right now I’m focused on the Munguya fight. You need to win it, and then managers and promoters will work. It will be their job to reach an agreement.”
