Canelo Alvarez says he’s dead serious about setting up a rematch with Floyd Mayweather — and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, says Floyd has more than a BILLION reasons to make it happen.
“If Floyd Floyd Mayweather decides to come back, a fight with him and Canelo Alvarez could be a $1.5 billion fight,” Oscar tells.
But, things have changed in a BIG way since then. Floyd Mayweather claims he made more than $300 MILLION per fight for his bouts with Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor.
Canelo Alvarez’s value has also gone way up — he recently signed a $365 MILLION fight contract with DAZN after notching impressive wins over huge stars like Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Gennady Golovkin.
Oscar says he’s realistic about the chances of making the rematch happen — and even clowns Floyd Mayweather taking easy fights against tomato can opponents like Tenshin Nasukawa.
But, Canelo Alvarez says he’s out for revenge — and hopes he can convince Floyd to strap on the gloves for one final war.
“I would love to have the opportunity to avenge that defeat,” Canelo told us through a translator.
In the meantime, Canelo Alvarez is gearing up for his May 4 fight against Daniel Jacobs to unify the middleweight belts.
Jacobs is 35-2 … and went the distance with Gennady Golovkin in 2017.
