Can, China’s third world champion in history, impressively outworked and broke down Robles, especially over the second half of the fight. Scores were 120-108, 119-109, 118-110 for Can. Robles’ father trains heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr.

“We trained very hard in the camp, three months for the fight,” said Xu Can afterward. “We wanted to show everybody in the world.”

Who do you want next?

“Josh [Harrington]! You coming out? Now I’m here. You see I’m here, right? Let’s fight. Let’s unify.”

Where would you want the fight?

“Anywhere. I can fight anywhere. I promise I will bring the belt back home to China.”
