Canelo: Mayweather-McGregor is a Joke, Boring Fight
While fans around the world wait in anticipation for the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor super-fight, many in the boxing community are not so excited. Count Canelo Alvarez in that mix, as he spoke out against the proposed blockbuster fight between Mayweather and UFC star McGregor.
Canelo, who is currently the top pay-per-view draw in boxing, told Fight Hub TV that McGregor’s inexperience is the main reason that this fight should not be taken seriously.
"In the history of boxing you’ve never seen a fighter fight one of the best fighters in boxing on his pro debut," Canelo said through a translator. "So it’s kind of ridiculous to hear that and see that.
"The fight will sell because they are two big names but it’s a joke."
Asked for a prediction on the fight, Canelo said that it won’t be one that excites the fans as much as they hope.
"If the fight happens, it will be a very boring fight," he said, before offering a quick and obvious prediction as to who would win: "Mayweather."
