I like watching the whole night. And my coach just come to my room and say go sleep you have a fight tomorrow, and it’s okay I go, I go but I’m watching a lot Muhammad Ali, Roy Jones Jr., Canelo, Mayweather, you know, and I’m so happy,” said Silva.
“I don’t believe you that you know and Canelo sign my glove. And when I saw Canelo, it’s real, Canelo’s come to talk to me… This the God for boxing right now, and come to talk to me. I’m so happy. Because that’s what I talked to my coach, I need you show him my respect for the people in the community boxing community. You know, I can’t come in here and don’t do my best, you know.
