EITHERscar of the Hoya got into the controversy with Sal Álvarez again, after the promoter compared the defeat of Scar Valdez vs. Shakur Stevenson with whom he lived Mexican champion with Floyd Mayweather.

The promoter posted a simple tweet after the fight of the Canelo Team member which caused hundreds of responses, especially that of Eddie Hearn.

In an interview with SPORTbible, Hearn mentioned that the best pound for pound is Canelo Álvarez and made it clear that his only loss to Mayweather was because he was too young to face the former American champion

Could he beat Floyd Mayweather in his prime? I think S

“Well, obviously it has to be promoted by Matchroom, one of our clients, the undisputed world super middleweight champion, Canelo Alvarez. It’s a difficult question when you talk about Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez because Floyd was very difficult to beat.

Hearn noted that if Mayweather had faced Canelo in his prime, the Mexican would have come out with the victory.

“But, At the same time, I think Canelo Alvarez was 21 or 22 years old when I fought him. So, he is twice the fighter he was back then. Could he beat Floyd Mayweather at his best? I think S.”
