Moreover, WBO, IBF, and WBA champion Artur Beterbiev’s dominant victory over Joe Smith Jr. have only added to the doubt of Alvarez being able to compete with the best at 175 pounds.
In an interview with FightHype, a reporter asked the former champ if Canelo Alvarez could ever beat Beterbiev in a match, “We all know Canelo lost to Bivol but can you see in a world where Canelo fights Beterbiev and he actually picks up that win, or do you think Beterbiev is just too much?”
Bradley then finally goes on to give some advice to the Mexican for his upcoming bout with Gennady Golovkin, “Canelo gotta get back moving on his feet man he gotta get back on that bike moving here moving there, subtle movement bro, he gotta get back to his trap, he got too comfortable knocking guys out bro.”
Moreover, his fight with Bivol has proved that Alvarez is not yet ready to take on the Russian, however, a match with Golovkin will be the perfect test for him. Alvarez has also been very vocal about facing Bivol for a second time, which he will most likely do in 2023 in a bid to further solidify his legacy as one of the best boxers of all time.
