“I take my time,” Alvarez said, as quoted by

“… I have a lot of experience. Jaime Munguia is a great fighter, he’s strong, he’s smart. I take my time. I have 12 rounds to win he fight and I did. I did really good, and I feel proud about it. He’s strong, but he’s a little slow, I can see every punch.

Sometimes he got me because I get so confident. But, you know, like I say .. I have this kind of experience. That’s why I’m the best”.
