McGregor: wants to fight “Canelo” Álvarez

McGregor: wants to fight “Canelo” Álvarez

“The man that everyone in boxing made fun of, walked out the front door of the circus.” Conor McGregor had no trouble acknowledging the show he put on alongside Floyd Mayweather in the boxing match he lost by knockout in the 10th round late last August.

However, that does not take him away from the world of boxing and his environment recognized that a new blow of effect for the world of sports appears on the horizon of his plans: he wants to get in the ring to face Saúl Canelo Álvarez.

“He wants Nate Díaz on Paddy’s Day in New York in March, but it could also be Canelo in May,” John Kavanagh, coach of the mixed martial arts champion, told reporters.

Weeks ago, the UFC fighter’s environment had recognized the intention to fight again against the American Nate Díaz, in what would be the third confrontation between these two mixed arts specialists. Although the intention of the Irishman to get into the ring to fight with the Mexican boxer would alter the continuity of his career.

Canelo is considered one of the best boxers today: he won 49 fights – 34 before the limit – and barely shows a defeat.

Despite these statements, McGregor’s dream would run into Álvarez’s interests, who days ago stressed: “I don’t want to fight another than the tiebreaker (with Golovkin). I want it to be the first fight of the year, and that’s what we’re going to try to do. It should be noted that the fight between Golovkin and Canelo ended with a tie for the referee’s decision.
