“For me, he’s the best in 175 (lbs division). That makes me feel alive and motivated. For me, it’s a really big challenge but I like it.”
One thing that Taylor, Serrano and Alvarez all share is the dream to be the best, a goal which Alvarev is nearing, if not already at, in his own career.
“At the end of the day, what I want is to become one of the greatest fighters in boxing history so now is my time and I feel great.”
