Conor McGregor and Canelo Alvarez engaged in a social media exchange following McGregor's praise for Mayweather's performance against Canelo. This feud also came on the heels of an announcement yesterday that Showtime Sports will no longer exist, thus ending the production of Showtime Boxing.
McGregor took to his social media platforms to comment on Mayweather's win over Canelo in 2013, mentioning that 'he landed more shots' on Mayweather than Canelo.
McGregor's claim was based around the Compubox stats from their respective bouts against Mayweather showed that McGregor landed 26 percent of his punches and 28 percent of his jabs in their 2017 encounter, whereas Alvarez landed 22 percent of his punches and 15 percent of his jabs in the 2013 showdown. Two things were left out though, one) Mayweather was essentially a retired boxer, who seemingly didn't train as hard as prior fights for McGregor and Canelo landed 31 percent of his power shots compared to McGregor's 25 percent.
Canelo not one to sit and talk crap from anyone especially someone who loiters in the boxing space was quick to retort.
