Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has shared his two cents to Jorge Masvidal and other MMA fighters who want to fight world champion boxers.

Although combat sports is basically about hitting and hurting an opponent, boxing and MMA are still two different sports. However, some MMA fighters have developed an act in which after they manage to make a name in MMA, they would call-out a world boxing champ.

These call-outs may have been fuelled by former UFC champ Conor McGregor when he challenged undefeated boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. The fight was so hyped that even after MMA fighters witnessed how Mayweather finished McGregor, they still want to test their skills inside the boxing ring.

Canelo, who is arguably the pound-for-pound king, is currently being challenged by UFC star Masvidal. The Canelo call-out started shortly after Masvidal beat Nate Diaz and made a name in the UFC as the promotion’s “BMF.”

According to Masvidal, he is “10 times” the athlete Canelo is and he could put the Mexican superstar to “sleep,” The Post reported.

"I consider myself 10 times the athlete [Alvarez] is just because of MMA in general,” Masvidal said on the "Dan Le Batard Show" on ESPN.

“All the strength, speed and power you have to generate – to throw one kick is like throwing 10 right hands. That being said, there’s still an element that I could put his a-- to sleep, maybe I don’t hit harder, but I’m definitely bigger,” Masvidal continued.

Masvidal is also positive that he could be the fighter to even the score for MMA with a victory over Canelo. His statement suggested that he could avenge the humiliating defeat McGregor suffered in the hands of Mayweather back in 2017.

“I could definitely make a statement and even it out for MMA, my sport,” Masvidal said.

“There [are] still things in boxing that are a part of boxing. I just feel I could beat him (Canelo) up in some areas,” Masvidal added.

But just recently, Canelo finally addressed the issue and responded to Masvidal’s claims. In a quick interview with Little Giant Boxing, the redhead boxing star spoke in Spanish as he was taking a break in the middle of an intense training.

Canelo’s statement was translated and summarized by the interviewer and according to Canelo, he has “no business with MMA” and Masvidal certainly has no business with boxing either.

He also added that MMA fighters just want to step inside the ring because of “the money and there’s no other reason.”
