Canelo Alvarez, widely recognized as the finest Mexican boxer has achieved remarkable success by securing World Championships in four different weight divisions. In a recent interview. Alvarez highlighted the significance of respect by addressing the distinction between excellence in football and displaying respectful behavior. He remarked, “While it is acceptable for them to surpass us in football prowess. It is crucial that they demonstrate respect as well.”
Messi’s teammates swiftly defended him, with Sergio Aguero clarifying the situation.
“Mr. Canelo, please refrain from seeking excuses or stirring up trouble. You probably lack knowledge about football and what occurs in a locker room,” Aguero tweeted. “Shirts often end up on the floor after matches due to sweat, and if you observe closely, Messi made a movement to remove his boot and accidentally hit the shirt.”
