I know the best version of me has to show up, and throughout my career, when I’ve faced someone and needed a great performance, I’ve always delivered. Judging me for a fight is a bit naive, and if some fans feel like that’s the best of me, then they probably haven’t seen the rest of my career. Some fans are brilliant, others are fickle and will judge you for a performance. “
And it is those fans who will continue to demand, although Callum I beat Canelo, as the English fighter himself recognizes.
