Boxing Superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez was the blunt of UFC Champion Conor McGregor’s jokes when he spoke about Boxers picking and choosing fights. Canelo spoke with Boxingscene about the whole Conor McGregor coming into Boxing situation. Check it out.
“If you look at the history of the fight game, especially in this new era, it’s full of stars cherry-picking their opponents. When they hold a position of power, when they get a name, all of a sudden they pick weaker opponents. They look down their division. Nobody looks up a division. Nobody looks at true challenges,Then, once in a blue moon, when that true challenge can’t be denied, like the Mayweather-Pacquiao situation, it happens. But when you look at this Canelo situation, it’s an era of cherry picking.”
Conor McGregor told Los Angeles Times.
“If he wants to try out boxing – any time he wants. If he wants to come over to this side of the world and try boxing – any time he wants – to see that it’s not as easy as he thinks,”
Canelo told BoxingScene.com.
