“I’m going to win. Without a doubt, I’m going to win. This fight is personal because Trout beat my brother. I was there and felt helpless. From that moment I wanted to fight Trout. When the day comes, I’ll enjoy every moment of it,” said Canelo.
“He said that it’s for revenge. For me, it was never about his brother. It’s not about his family…I have the mindset that I’m not leaving San Antonio without my belt, without his belt and without my ‘zero’ intact,” said Trout.
