Mike Tyson attended this Friday the weigh-in ceremony prior to the fight between Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez and Caleb Plant for the unification of super middleweight titles, where he showed his support for the Mexican and explained why he is considered one of his great admirers.
In a informal interview During the event, the former heavyweight champion commented that he has followed in the Mexican’s footsteps “from the beginning” and confessed that what most caught his attention about his boxing career was how he faced his only defeat. “He was not discouraged when he lost to [Floyd] Mayweather. I judge a fighter by his losses, more than for their victories, “he said.
Comparing Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez with his compatriot Julio César Chávez, ‘Iron Mike’ considers that it would be “almost impossible” to surpass the prolific career of the legendary fighter, whom he referred to as “incredible” and “unstoppable.” However, he noted: “If anyone can do it, I’m sure it would be Canelo.”
Julio César Chávez himself was another of the personalities who attended the meeting yesterday at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas. Tyson had the opportunity to see him and took the opportunity to praise him as they exchanged greetings. “The true champion”, repeated the American several times to refer to the Mexican while raising his arm, emulating the designation of the winner in a match by the referee in the center of the ring.
