I am a perfectionist and I don't like to make mistakes, but you learn from everything and that is the important thing ”, Canapino analyzed, who had not won since last March 21 when he won on the second date of the tournament that was held in Buenos Aires.
“The final was perfect. I was able to get to the top quickly and then I had a very intense heads up with Santero. It was a very strategic fight and I was able to contain it to take a very important victory for the championship ”, added the reef.
