In a recent interview, Canelo Alvarez was asked to share his thoughts on gym stablemate and Cuban heavyweight Frank Sanchez
“He will be world champion, he will sweep everyone in the heavyweight division because he is a special talent” – Canelo told the El Nuevo Herald
Speaking post-fight, about having the support of Canelo ringside during his fight and victory last Saturday night, Sanchez said;
“Seeing Canelo there supporting me, he was motivated me even more”
“He always supports me and all of us in his gym. It makes me want to keep improving. I feel very happy. Starting out the year like this with another win in front of all the Cuban fans here in Miami is amazing.”
Big statements and confidence coming from the Frank Sanchez team in recent days, they’re clearly very confident that the Cuban can make a big impact in a heavyweight division, which is stacked with many champions, top contenders and rising talent.
I guess, if you’re not confident or self assured, then boxing is the wrong sport as you can’t play boxing as the old saying states. Boxing is as much a mental game as it is a physical one.
