“I don’t give a $h*t,” Alvarez said. “I don’t care if they even got a ref in there. Where this thing is and when it airs and where it airs, that ain’t got nothing to do with me.
“I’m getting a world title shot. I’m getting an opportunity to do something that I’ve been fighting 13 years for. I don’t care where they view this or if they even view it all. I don’t give two $h*ts.”
Alvarez also said it’s the doubters and haters that drive him to prove them all wrong.
“I just want that title shot. Look, I told everyone that this would happen,” Alvarez said. “I thrive and I do well in situations where people tell me you can’t do something. I love when people tell me I can’t do something. It excites me. It gets me up. This is that situation. A lot of lot of f*c&*ng people told me I couldn’t do this and that’s probably the only reason I’m gonna do this because someone told me I can’t.”
