After a tiny bit of drama yesterday, fight week is back on!
Canelo is all set to lace them up again for the third time in 6 months when he faces Billy Joe Saunders on Saturday in a super middleweight unification bout brought to you by DAZN.
This is BY FAR the biggest US sporting event since the beginning of the pandemic with 70,000 people scheduled to be in AT&T Stadium for the fight.
I am in the bubble down here in Arlington with the fighters all week but this interview is from last week when I spent 2 days with TEAM CANELO at their top-secret training facility somewhere directly over the Mexican border.
We start the interview in Spanish (or at least he does), but then we settle into English as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world got more comfortable with my outrageous mustache.
Robbie Fox and I will be at the presser, weigh-in, and (of course) ringside for the fight, so if something pops up, I will be all over it.
And, as always, you can wager responsibly at the Barstool Sportsbook… I will give a full preview (including a stacked undercard) and prediction later this week, and Canelo is still a considerable favorite…
Enjoy the interview and you can pre-order the fight RIGHT HERE.
