While Canelo Alvarez had to wait for Jorge Masvidal to fight on Saturday night, Masvidal is waiting for a chance to fight the new WBO light heavyweight champion.
“I can box and I want to break Canelo’s face,” Masvidal said in the aftermath of his stoppage win over Nate Diaz at UFC 244, which was seen by the fans inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena prior to Alvarez’s 11th round knockout of Sergey Kovalev on November 2nd.
“I can box, move, work different angles, and I feel like fighting him. Maybe it’s a sign that I fought today and he did too, but I want to have the opportunity to get in the ring with him.”
