“Next November 27 we are going to have a boxing fight, which is brought precisely by Mr. Canelo Álvarez, a boxer that everyone knows him and who has represented us internationally, because in Mexico we have a hotbed of boxers that goes to box abroad he is a Mexican and he has always been a winner ”, pondered Professor Michel.
“Mexico continues to advance and the box here in Puerto Vallarta will also help us to promote our tourist destination, which we occupy so much in these times of economic reactivation.”

He stressed that the boxer and his coach have won various world championships, being outstanding athletes who have earned the admiration, respect and recognition of Mexicans and the citizens of Vallarta.
The alderman Diego Franco Jimenez, warned of legal issues, and clarify with the boxer to avoid future economic implications:
“The issue of bringing the Canelo, taking care of the image issue, and having the document out there that proves that he would not charge us expenses … on the issues of his company, so that after a while there is something good and it turns out to be bad. , the issue of expenses that could arise from using his image as an ambassador of Puerto Vallarta, simply take advantage of the idea and discuss it with him and not misuse his image that after a while has an economic impact on the municipality, ”Franco explained.
The mayor said they will take this observation into account. The councilors supported the initiative for the award-winning sports career of Canelo and the international projection that it could give to Puerto Vallarta.
