Beterbiev dismisses Canelo! He prefers to fight another world champion


Pit seems that Canelo Alvarez will not fight again in the division of the light heavy for a long time, since the attractive boxers to face him are not interested in him and this is the case of the Russian-Canadian Artur Beterbyev.
