Canelo Alvarez has refused to entertain the idea of fighting UFC star Conor McGregor.
McGregor is no stranger to the boxing world, having faced Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a crossover fight in 2017.
Despite getting stopped, he put in a respectable performance in managing to stay ten rounds with a boxing legend.
And in the process of doing so, he pocketed a reported $100 million for his troubles. With that being said, the Irishmen goaded the Mexican with some fighting talk.

“I’m a southpaw, John Ryder’s a southpaw, Billy Joe Saunders is a southpaw. I’ve seen methods. I’ve seen things I do, and I know he’s waning. I’d fight Canelo no f—ing problem,” McGregor
Nevertheless, the fight is unlikely to happen anytime soon. Not only has McGregor’s star power waned, having lost three of his last four UFC fights, Canelo has made it clear that it would not be competitive.
“I’ll beat him with one hand on my back,” Canelo
McGregor refused to lie down, as he continued to fire back, despite the Mexican’s lack of interest.
