Canelo’s revelation about the end of his career
Both fighters began promoting the fight with a series of media events where they spoke to the press. During one of them, Canelo revealed something that although no one was thinking about it, did puzzle the boxing world.
When will Canelo retire? Is retirement looming over Canelo? He responded directly as his body has endured many hits during his boxing career.
“I think I at least have four more years in me, maybe five. I’ve been a professional boxer since I was 15 years of age. That is almost 18 years of fighting professionally. I always said I would retire when I was 36 or 37, around that age. That should be more than enough, it’s so many years of boxing. By then, I will have accomplished many things and then I will have to enjoy life with the family and all.”
