Canelo Claims Only ‘One Hand’ is Needed to Defeat McGregor

Canelo Alvarez, the undisputed super middleweight champion of the world, dabbles in trash-talk every now and then, and when he does, it’s generally entertaining. Canelo and Conor McGregor engaged in a Twitter back-and-forth that stemmed from McGregor reposting and sharing his thoughts on a video highlight of the Mayweather vs Canelo fight. McGregor complimented Canelo but took a subtle shot along the way.

Canelo welcomed the jab and countered with his thoughts on how a fight between McGregor and himself would look.

Conor laid the bait and Canelo took it, which prompted a heated reply from Conor. This is common practice from the UFC star on social media, as he has beefed with numerous fighters across boxing and MMA.

The back and forth continued with Canelo responding with another light jab, and Conor acting as an aggressor in his war of words. This is the type of banter that generally is used to support the promotion leading into a super fight. Based on Conor’s closing response, one could surmise that is where he wanted to take this, but Canelo did not take that bait, and we were left with Conor getting the last word.

McGregor has recently put the wheels in motion to gear up for a UFC return, though no date has been set, while Canelo has his eyes looking towards Cinco de Mayo 2024 for his next bout.

All eyes will be on David Benavidez vs Demetrius Andrade on November 25, as that is a fight that most boxing fans will be looking toward for a future Canelo opponent.
