Canelo Alvarez laughed off the possibility of having a rematch against Floyd Mayweather Jr., saying the American boxing icon is done with the sport and is instead targeting MMA fighters.

In an ambush interview by TMZ Sports, the four-division world champion Alvarez simply smirked and gave a mocking response when asked about his thoughts on Mayweather’s return in 2020 and the chances of them meeting again inside the ring for the second time.

“Mayweather says he’s coming back next year. What do you think those chances are and you getting a rematch if he’s working with Dana White?” TMZ asked. After having the question translated to him by a friend walking with him, the Mexican superstar answered, “He’s not gonna fight with me.”

The interviewer followed up, “Is he scared to fight you?” The 29-year-old Alvarez abruptly responded, “He’s gonna take on MMA fighters,” before leaving the scene with a smugly smile.

Canelo Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather Jr. first met inside the boxing ring on September 2013 in front of a packed MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas where the much older Mayweather won via majority decision, 114-114, 116-112, 117-111.

After the said fight, Alvarez admitted his defeat and said that Mayweather was really hard to catch. Six years later, the loss remains the only dent to Alvarez’s pro-career record that stands at 53-1-2.

Canelo Alvarez just recently seized the WBO Light Heavyweight belt after a vicious round-11 knockout win against erstwhile champ Sergey Kovalev in Vegas.

Floyd Mayweather Jr., meanwhile, hinted on possibly signing up for two fights in his return next year: one in boxing and the other rumored to be staged inside the Octagon. Mayweather Jr., a defensive specialist, will be making a return with an unblemished record in 50 professional fights. But more than the Canelo rematch, reports say that “the Money” is targeting another rival in Manny Pacquiao for his comeback fight.
