A Conversation with Canelo Alvarez on Moving to DAZN, Mayweather, Jacobs, GGG, & More


Let’s talk about your upcoming fight with Daniel Jacobs. Who I believe is the biggest challenge you can take on right now. 

Canelo: Precisely for that. Because I love challenges. You’re right, this is the biggest challenge at this moment.

How are you going to have to adjust your game plan and approach with Jacobs compared to that against GGG who is much different style-wise?

Canelo: Absolutely, he is a totally different, more complete fighter than Golovkin. That is why the strategy and adjustments have to be made and the work has to be followed by that.

How much has Oscar De La Hoya meant to your career?

Canelo: We are a team. We are a team, all of us together. You know what, it all goes hand and hand with all the hard work and everything. And as a team, it has meant a lot.

Would you ever consider taking on an MMA fighter in the boxing ring like Mayweather did with McGregor?

Canelo: You can never say never, but that is not something that’s crossed my mind right now.

Who is the one fighter that is now retired that you wish you could have faced off with?

Canelo: None.

Going forward, what you do feel you need to accomplish to justify your legacy? 

Canelo: I don’t think there is one specific thing or stamp I have to finally do. Just continue doing what I am doing, fighting the best fights, and writing history. Once the day comes and I retire, then hopefully, all that accumulation of what I have done puts it all together for a great career.
