Canelo Alvarez 'Would Love' Rematch With Floyd Mayweather But Rules Out GGG Trilogy

Canelo Alvarez 'Would Love' Rematch With Floyd Mayweather But Rules Out GGG Trilogy

Canelo Alvarez has thrown his hat into the ring to take on the returning Floyd Mayweather by saying he 'would love' a rematch.

The Mexican warrior has just one loss on his impressive record to date - against Mayweather by majority decision in Las Vegas six years ago.

Alvarez admits he learned a lot of lessons from that 2013 defeat at the MGM Grand and has since gone on to become champion at middleweight, super middleweight and now light heavyweight.

But with Mayweather announcing he will return to fighting next year, Canelo joined the queue to fight the pound-for-pound great.

He told ESPN: "I've imagined fighting him again, but more than a loss, that fight was a lesson. I would love to [fight him again], and hopefully we can."

Two of Alvarez's biggest fights since that Mayweather bout came against Gennady Golovkin.

The pair fought to a draw in September 2017 before Canelo edged a majority decision the following year.

One the prospect of a third fight, he said: "I don't want to fight with him. He doesn't mean anything to me anymore. I gave him 24 rounds, and that's that."

Alvarez beat Sergey Kovalev earlier this month to win the WBO light heavyweight title and become a four-weight world champion.
