The duo shares a rift with each other and this just adds to the hype of this enigmatic bout. Recently, in a pre-fight interview with DAZN Boxing, Saunders painted some verbal shots at his foe, Canelo Alvarez.

He said, “I don’t give a s*** about Canelo Alvarez, not two s***s. If I win this fight, let me win this fight, let me say goodbye to my kids and I go boom! Adios. Because to me, this is legacy, it’s ain’t about money.”
