Isn’t it weird People en Español invited you and, last year, [Puerto Rico’s Miguel] Cotto to Mexican-heavy San Antonio, knowing the great rivalry between Argentine and, especially, Puerto Rican and Mexican boxers?

I have a very strange relationship with Mexican fans: I’ve never met a Chávez Jr. fan, even though I travel to [Mexico City] very often. But, really, everyone in Mexico always greets me wonderfully. If I see [seven-time, four-division champion Juan Manuel] Márquez [currently ranked as number three pound-for-pound boxer by The Ring], for example, or with [Antonio] Margarito, or any other boxer, we see each other as equal. We’re all professional and we do the same job. But I love Mexican people and they treat me excellently.

I still believe that, in your division, you’re unbeatable as long as you fight with two arms and stand on two legs. So, how fit will you be in 2014?

I’ll be marvelous.
