The newest rivalry that is cooking in the combat sports scene is between two of its biggest names – Conor McGregor and Canelo Alvarez.

The former UFC double champ has been out of action for almost two and a half years now, since his leg fracture in the trilogy against Dustin Poirier in July 2021. The recovery phase pushed “The Notorious” away from the fight game, and he even left the USADA testing pool.

In the meantime, McGregor has not been shy in calling out other big names in the industry. From Nate Diaz to his most recent TUF rival coach Michael Chandler, The Irishman has called out a lot of names and one of them include Canelo Alvarez- the boxing icon.

The Mexican, who is the reigning undisputed super middleweight world champ, has always been negative in his response to McGregor’s callouts and indicated no interest towards locking horns with the UFC star.

Canelo says he just needs “one hand” against Conor McGregor

While he kept on maintaining a naysay towards facing McGregor, the recent war of words between the two has shown a different reaction from Canelo, which many see as a sign of a potential future bout.

It all started with McGregor reflecting on his 2017 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. On X, he wrote that he had landed more shots on Floyd than Canelo did in his past encounter with “Money”.

“One of the greatest performances in Professional Boxing this was. I landed more shots on Floyd than Canelo. I’d love another go.” wrote McGregor on X earlier today.

Canelo was quick to respond to the post, and wrote, “I just need one hand with you and I don’t need to throw so many punches.”

McGregor followed up with, “Saul you uncooked chicken, I’ll stomp the ligaments out of your knee joint. I don’t even need hands to end you, I’ll kick you raw pink, leave you looking like you were left out in the sun too long haha freckle arse. I will see you and we will see. Canelo is a cornflake, no sugar.
