Mike Tyson lashes out at Canelo Alvarez: This is a shame for boxing and for Mexico

Two-time heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has weighed in on the recent controversy surrounding Canelo Alvarez’s refusal to face David Benavidez in a high-profile bout.

Tyson, who is familiar with Mexican boxing and its fighters, expressed astonishment at Canelo’s decision, particularly considering the substantial purse of 60 million dollars offered for the fight.

Tyson’s remarks underscore the disappointment among boxing fans at Canelo’s reluctance to take on formidable opponents. He reminisced about a time when Mexican fighters fearlessly entered the ring against any challenger, regardless of their stature.

“I can’t believe what I just heard, Canelo rejected 60 million dollars to fight Benavidez, who is a tremendous fighter, young, strong, with hunger and Mexican pride,” Tyson noted.

“What’s wrong with Canelo? Is he afraid of losing? Doesn’t he want to give the fans the fight they want to see?

“Don’t you want to give the fans the fight they want to see?

“Do you not respect the legacy of the great Mexican champions who faced the best regardless of the money?… This is a shame for boxing and for Mexico.

“If I were him, I would accept the fight with Benavidez and show the world that he is the best. But it seems he doesn’t have the courage to do it; It is a shame, because he has a lot of talent, but he lacks heart.”
