Canelo on Being Open to Fight With Conor McGregor Under This Condition

Despite promoter Oscar De La Hoya’s recent disdain for all things Mayweather vs. McGregor Canelo Alvarez says he’s open to fighting McGregor under one condition, if he defeats Mayweather.

During an interview with Jack Jorgensen of Fansided, Alvarez explains his interest would only pique if McGregor pulls off the impossible.

“If that miracle was to happen, then we have a conversation. If that miracle were to happen, but I doubt it very much that Conor beats Floyd.”

De La Hoya wasn’t always against a boxing/mma hybrid matchup. Back in December he told Fighthub.com a fight between Canelo and McGregor at 160 would be “exciting.”

“The only interest I would have of Conor, if he’s serious about fighting; First of all, we’d love to talk with him and promote him. Imagine, Conor McGregor and Golden Boy coming together. But the only fight I’d love to see and the one that makes the most sense, that would be the most exciting, that would be a guaranteed knockout is against Canelo Alvarez.

Fans will have to wait to see what happens.
