"Will Never Get the Fight." Canelo on Ward's Critique

In an interview with K.O. Artist Sports, the undisputed super middleweight (up to 76,2 kg) champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (60-2-2, 39 KOs) responded to criticism from former boxer Andre Ward.

Andre Ward criticized you, saying, "Look at his record, some of the guys were older, he avoided people," but you know, Andre Ward has a few questionable decisions in his record. What was your reaction to that?

I can't say anything about him, he can say whatever he wants. Maybe he wants a fight with me, but he will never get it. Maybe he wants a paycheck.

Do you think it's just jealousy or something like that?

What else? I've never met him, never talked to him, and never said anything about him. What else?

The fight between Canelo and Jaime Munguia (43-0, 34 KOs) is set for May 4th in Las Vegas, USA.
