Canelo Alvarez scored a wide unanimous decision over Puerto Rican rival Miguel Cotto to secure the WBC World Middleweight Championship.
The Mexican star took a unanimous decision, the scorecards returned 117-111, 119-109, 118-110 all in his favour.
"It's an emotion that I just can't put into words. I'm very happy, much respect to Miguel Cotto, but now it's my era," Alvarez said to Max Kellerman in the ring.
"It's a great victory for me. Not just for me, but for all of my country! For all my people, for my family, and especially for my team!"
"I have a great trainer, the one who brings me here from nothing. I didn't even know what a jab was! And now they get me here to this level, that shows the quality of these trainers. They're more than trainers, they're my family!"
When asked about the possibility of facing feared KO king Gennady Golovkin next, Canelo was unequivocal in his response.
"If you want me to fight him right now, I'll put the gloves on and fight him right now! My respect, he's a great champion, but right now I'll put the gloves on against him!," Canelo declared.
