WBC and WBA middleweight champion Saul Alvarez is still holding his ground, not wanting to get into the ring against another boxer from Mexico.
The last time Canelo fought his compatriot was in 2017, in that fight, Alvarez won a dominant victory over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
However, despite Canelo’s position, ex-WBO champion Jaime Mungia, who moved to middleweight last year and is now trying to get a big fight for himself, wants to fight him.
“I represent Mexico and I don’t like fighting other Mexicans. I don’t see any point in such fights. Jaime Mungia has potential, but he still has a lot of fights ahead of him before he gets to the proper level. I don’t close the door. finally, but right now I would rather not fight another fighter from Mexico, “Alvarez said in an interview with TV Azteca.
