Then, the way he got into the ring was questioned, since the semi-complete champion of the WBA He ended up dominating the fight and prevailed with some ease, by unanimous decision.

After losing the lawsuit and recognition as the “best pound for pound in the world”, he was also pointed out for dedicating himself to playing golf for a few days, despite having confirmed the third fight against Gennady Golovkin for next September 17 in Las Vegas.

Despite the comments, the fighter from Guadalajara published a photograph on his account Instagram this Saturday, where he simply wrote: “With head held high” while in the image he appears with bandaged hands and combat shorts, alluding to the fact that he has already begun his physical preparation to face the Kazakh fighter for the third time.
