I know that he is recognized worldwide and that everyone in the boxing world knows who he is. Julio Cesar Chavez. He is a legend, and legend status is achieved when people, regardless of whether they like boxing or not, know his name, people know Julio César Chávez ».

More confident than ever
At the same time, Brandon He explained: “I think if I can sum it up, it all shows in Chávez’s most symbolic fight: the fight he had against Meldrick Taylor. I see my life that way. It was a fight that many thought he was losing, but in the end, with heart and pressure and being brave, he stops Meldrick Taylor and takes the victory. I want my career to reflect that because I am also aware that I am not going to be that kind of champion like Khabib (Nurmagomedov).
“He is undefeated and he is simply invincible. I think I am a very human champion. Despite all my limitations and imperfections, I can be on top of this game. Technique is very important, and everything has to go hand in hand with technique, but at the end of the day, having heart and courage when it comes time to fight is hard to have. It is something that you must forge along the way », he closed Brandon Moreno.
