Canelo “Saul” Alvarez has never been known to back down from anyone – including Conor McGregor. The Mexican Brawler is aware of the upcoming fantasy match involving the UFC champion and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and believes his former foe will win that bout hands down according to

For Alvarez, a win by McGregor would be a miracle. Aside from the fact that this would be a boxing match, the 27-year-old champion has already gotten a dose of what Mayweather can do. That came in September 2013 where Alvarez lost to the undefeated fighter – the only loss in his 51-fight card.

McGregor may need more than a miracle

Based on multiple reports, the brash-talking Irishman seems to be more concerned giving fans a good show. Erstwhile sparring partner Paul Malignaggi bolted the McGregor entourage, calling it more of a circus than a serious boxing training camp in a report from Agence France-Presse.

In that report, Malignaggi revealed how the UFC champion was not serious about getting better and the only asset he holds is his conditioning. If Mayweather’s past fights are any indication, McGregor could easily keep in step with the 40-year-old where one hit or punch may become the difference.

Alvarez can join the circus later

The dish of Alvarez does not sound like a serious one seeing he expects Mayweather to easily bring down “The Notorious”.

Besides, he has more serious things to worry about – Gennady Golovkin.

Alvarez will face GGG on Sept. 16, a mega fight which finally fulfills the wish of boxing fans. If their past fights are any indication, this mega bout should see both protagonists looking for a knockout even if their last fights were won via decision.

Alvarez won via unanimous decision over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

last May while Golovkin saw his KO streak snapped with a unanimous decision victory over Daniel Jacobs last March. Prior to those fights, both Alvarez and Golovkin were dismantling their opponents with vicious knockout victories.

Regardless, their meeting next month should be action-packed though both may be cautious before unleashing their barrage of punches.

A rematch and more fights are expected to follow, something that may hardly come as a surprise seeing how both have been dominating their foes.

With so much to look forward to, Alvarez may not have the time to spare for someone like McGregor. Seeing how the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight is seen nothing more than a revenue-generating scheme, Canelo and GGG may best focus on their boxing careers than joining the circus.
