Canelo, on the prospect of a fight against WBO titlist Billy Joe Saunders and unifying the super-middleweight division: “It’s important for me and my trainer Eddy [Reynoso], because very few people have achieved becoming undisputed champions.

“And that’s a short-term goal for us. To win all the titles at 168 pounds. Obviously, no Mexican has ever done it. So that’s our short-term goal, to keep making history. And that’s what we want. Eddy and I have always wanted the best. And we want to keep making history.”
