Ahmet Öner, promoter of Turkish middleweight title contender (up to 76.2 kg) Avni Yıldırım (21-2-0, 12 KO), commented on the announcement of his fight with WBC / WBA champion, Mexican Saul Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KO).
“His coach Yoel Diaz will fly to Turkey on Sunday. Avni is similar in style to Golovkin, he has the same great jab and is ready to prove himself. Yes, he had a two-year break, but now, as for me, he is more fresh. Therefore, we are in the mood for a good performance.
Callum Smith showed nothing [в бою с Канело]… He went through all twelve rounds, but it was a one-sided fight. I don’t know, maybe the pressure on him was too great, or maybe he didn’t have time to prepare, ”Oner said.
