Canelo promises to beat Messi, and Parker will have to explain himself – this is a powerful fakap


Saturday in Qatar football world championship The Mexican national team lost to the Argentines with a score of 0-2. After two rounds, the Mexicans have only 1 point. They may not reach the playoff stage even if they win in the final round over the team of Saudi Arabia.

But the Mexican boxing superstar and the reigning undisputed world super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez (58-2-2, 39 KOs) was disappointed not by the performance of his compatriots, but by the antics of the legendary Argentine striker Lionel Messi – in the locker room of his team wiped the floor with the flag of Mexico.

“Did you see how Messi wiped the floor with our flag? Let him now pray to God that we never cross paths with him, ”
writes Canelo.

A little later, the boxer decided to add for complete clarity that “you must respect Mexico in the same way that I respect Argentina. I don’t speak for the whole country. I speak for Messi and for his act. The fans don’t count. But we must be an example for them.”

It looks like Canelo’s next fight will be against British John Ryder (32-5, 18 KOs), who over the weekend forced compatriot Zack Parker (22-1, 16 KOs) to capitulate and became the holder of the interim WBO super middleweight title.

Promoter Eddie HearnMatchroom Boxing) spoke with Ryder on the phone and vividly trolled the winner: “Incredible! Well done dude! I’m so proud of you. Look, I already texted (Canelo’s manager/coach) Eddie Reynoso. Let’s do a fight in the Emirates, right? What other options? Is Wembley Stadium in London right for you? What about Tottenham Hotspur Stadium? You won’t have any problems if you have to fight on it (laughs)?”

The thing is that Ryder is a fan of the London football team Arsenal. And the most important derby in England is the confrontation between Arsenal and Tottenham.

Interestingly, in the meantime, the loser is in serious trouble. Parker refused to continue the fight with Ryder, citing an injured hand.

And then the boxer did something incredibly stupid – he posted a picture of “his injured hand” on the social network:


It turned out that he found this photo on the Internet. Fans demand an explanation:


Ryder previously explained why he should be Canelo’s next opponent. And the Mexican himself announced a plan for 2023: there will be no fight with Bivol in May.
