Canelo Alvarez backs Gervonta Davis to beat Ryan Garcia as their feud continues
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has decided to support Gervonta Davis to beat his old training partner Ryan Garcia in case they face each other in the ring.

Davis’ team had reportedly already been in contact about a fight between the two boxers.
What did Canelo Alvarez say?
So far, no date has been announced and there is no evidence of progress in negotiations, but Garcia’s former teammate and mentor, Cinnamonhas weighed in on how he thinks the fight would play out if negotiations came to fruition.
“It’s a good fight for boxing,” said the super middleweight champion.
“I think Tank has more experience. That’s what I think, but in boxing you never know.”

The rivalry between Canelo and Ryan Garcia
It all started after Garcia knocked out Luke Campbell in 2021 and then decided to take a break from the sport due to mental health issues.
This led to Canelo criticizing Garcia for his lack of discipline and the young lightweight fighter responded by predicting that Gennady Golovkin He would beat the Mexican in his next trilogy.
Canelo was unhappy with these comments and expressed his displeasure on the DAZN boxing show, saying, “He’s just mad about something: he is no longer on the team. He is always going to be against us, no matter what.”
“But he’s a little boy. You need to learn many things.
“My advice to him is to do your job, focus on your career, win a world championship first and then talk about other people.
“Because you haven’t accomplished anything and you start talking about fighters who have accomplished a lot. When he was 20 years old he was world champion.
“You can call everyone and say and talk and everything, but at the end of the day, you’re not doing anything.”
