Canelo Álvarez broke the silence outside Twitter and after expressing his annoyance and threatening Lionel Messi on the social network for allegedly throwing and kicking a Mexico shirt in the locker room, the boxer spoke to the Mexican newspaper Excelsior and confessed what he he would say to the Argentine player if he found him face to face.
“Nothing else would tell him what it is: ‘the shit… cab… and assume it. She asks for an apology. Spot.’ And if not, then I slap him and that’s it”, expressed the Jalisco.
The unified super middleweight champion insisted that for him, what the soccer player did is disrespectful, which is why he remains upset by the fact, despite the fact that many of his fans have told him that it is something normal in soccer. .
“The context is that you cannot control the fans, they can do whatever they want, they can throw the flag, throw a shirt or whatever, we cannot control that, but I, Saúl Álvarez, who represents a nation, grab a shirt or a flag and trample it, because we are setting a very ugly example. Since the shirt is on the ground, it’s disrespectful”, he commented.
Finally, the multi-time boxing champion remained firm in his position to defend his country, no matter who.
“I don’t mince words, I will always defend my country. I’m worth mad… if Messi says one thing or another, my homeland is the most beautiful thing I have”, he sentenced.
