Canelo Alvarez responds to Jorge Masdival callout

Canelo Alvarez admits a potential fight with surging UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal is alluring from a business standpoint, but not from a competitive standpoint. After taking out Nate Diaz at UFC 244 in New York City over a month ago, Masvidal shifted his attention to the boxing world. He called out Canelo Alvarez, who knocked out Sergey Kovalev to become the WBO Light Heavyweight champion the same night Jorge won the “BMF” strap. “I say this with all respect: If I go into his sport, I have nothing to do there. And I think the same about boxing: If (MMA fighters) come into boxing, they have nothing to do here,” Canelo told Little Giant Boxing (via MMA Junkie). “But looking at it from a business standpoint, it is attractive, but it’s not a challenge for me, so it’s not my priority.” Source- USA Today
