As Canelo Alvarez prepares to face Gennady Golovkin in their anticipated rematch, he took the time to throw a bit of shade at an old opponent.
When interviewed by TMZ Sports, prior to his February 27th News conference in Los Angeles, Alvarez claimed that he would never be caught in an MMA Cage, and he’d never disrespect the sport of boxing by considering it.
I respect boxing. Boxing’s my sport. That’s what I love. The other sport, that’s something we’ll never know,” he told TMZ Sports.
When asked about former opponent, Floyd Mayweather, who has been rumored to fight for the UFC in a rematch against Conor McGregor, Alvarez told reporters that
“Whatever he does doesn’t interest me.”
