“Personally, I’m feeling good. I’m not giving any excuses. I do feel that I won the fight," Álvarez said (h/t Bad Left Hook). "I think perhaps, maybe I lost four or five rounds, but I definitely didn’t lose the fight. I think I got a little bit tired towards the final rounds, but I felt good. We’ll see what’s next. Maybe the weight was a slight issue, and I didn’t feel 100 percent during the fight. I’m always looking for difficult fights. I went up and looked for this difficult fight. Naturally, I feel good at 168, but I’m always up for challenges. That’s boxing. Tonight I was looking for greatness. I think as I said, he won four or five rounds maximum. I felt a little bit fatigued going into the final rounds. Perhaps it was because of the fight. But personally, I feel as I said, that he only won four or five rounds.”
