Canelo Brushes Off The Comments of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

By Rene Umanzor

WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) brushed off the recent comments made by Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs), who tooks shots at the young Mexican star while being interviewed by Fighthype.com. Canelo has claimed that Mayweather refused to sign a contract to fight him in September.

The Mexican boxer will face WBA champion Austin Trout in a unification bout on April 20th in San Antonio. Mayweather will defend his WBC welterweight title against Robert Guerrero on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I don't like to talk and [people] can say whatever they want, it doesn't matter. I respect the opinions of others and I can only say that I'll fight with anyone," said Canelo. "Floyd is talking because he knows very well how things went down during our negotiations and he knows what he didn't do. I think that in fact if he didn't care, then he wouldn't be saying anything at all."

"We all know that he decides who he fights; but I am not going to be waiting around until he decides [to fight me]. That is why I decided to take my own path . And if I don't fight with him, I will still have a pay per view event; that is why there is no problem. We have not thrown out the possibility of fighting Floyd. We'll fight with anyone."

So talk trash and talk about how much money you make, and how nobody will get a bigger paycheck then if they fought him. The problem is Floyd creates the illusion he could be interested in fighting, but he's not…

[QUOTE=mathed;13152197]Other people in his camp apparently said so too. I don't know, if he did punch the little guy, criminal charges should have been pressed against him. I don't know what became of that, I don't think he went to…

[QUOTE=mathed;13152092]It has been proven that unlike the overwhelming assumptions of posters here, there was going to be a contingency clause that both guys would have to win their next fights before fighting in September. I personally think he is going…
