What has been said?

De La Hoya believes a 'changing of the guard' will happen when Canelo faces his fighter Munguia.

The 51-year-old said: “He is ready right now. He is positioned right now. This is his moment. This could be the changing of the guard on Cinco de Mayo.

“It’s all about footwork because you have a guy [Canelo], who is 33, and you have a younger guy [Munguia].

"So, obviously, his legs are fresher. He can take a punch better, although Canelo does have a good chin.

"But when you have all that wear and tear under your belts, the armor tends to bend a little at that stage."
