McGregor: ‘Not really too much of a fan of either’ Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin

Makes Statement

McGregor gives his opinion on Alvarez and Golovkin.

I’m not really too much of a fan of either of those. I think Canelo’s a little but stuck, a little bit flat on his feet. When I watch footage of him I just see him getting peppered — he has no feet under him…Golovkin I think came into camp, for this preparation, badly out of shape. I’m looking at him badly out of shape up in Big Bear and I just see a drained individual. So, although they’re supposedly up there as well, I don’t really think they are.

De La Hoya wants Canelo Alvarez vs. McGregor

Makes Statement

De la Hoya says the only boxing fight that makes sense to him is McGregor vs. Alvarez.

If Conor is serious about fighting? First of all, I would love to talk to him and promote him. I mean, imagine Conor McGregor and Golden Boy coming together! But the only fight I would like to see, and this is the one that makes the most sense – as it would be the most exciting and would be a guaranteed knockout – is against Canelo Alvarez. And they’re in the same weight class. So it makes all the sense in the world. Imagine. 154. 160. It would be at 160 actually.

Makes Statement

Alvarez says he is open to meeting McGregor is the boxing ring, and criticises his comments about boxers.

I’ve been fighting the best since I was 23, since a very young age, that’s the last thing he could ever speak about me or say about me, but I understand, there’s people out there that like to talk nonsense and stupidity. If he wants to try out boxing, then anytime he wants. If he wants to come over to this side of the world and try boxing, anytime he wants, to see that it’s not as easy as he thinks,
