"Before money and everything else was mentioned. I said of course I'll fight Canelo. I didn't know where it was, or what was going on but the next day, Eddie got in touch, so I asked him where it was.

"He just said December 15, Madison Square Garden. I just said 'you're having a laugh aren't you?'.

"I've not really dreamed about just fighting Canelo but to fight at Madison Square Garden is an absolute dream. It's what I'm in the game for, so I took it straight away.

"I'm fighting one of the best fighters on the planet, one of the biggest stars in boxing and he's me talking him on.

"It just got better and better. It makes good business sense as well. I've got two little kids now and this is a life-changing opportunity, so of course I was going to take it.

"Fighting Canelo is one thing but at Madison Square Garden around Christmas time, it doesn't get any better than that. It's unbelievable."
