American former world champion Keith Thurman criticized boxer Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez this Saturday, stating that he only chooses easy rivals and that he learned that “from the best” Floyd Mayweather Jr.

In the statements for Fight Hub TV, Thurman praised Canelo in one part but in the other he attacked him hard, assuming that he has avoided the most difficult fights to avoid his fall..

“Are there better challengers? Definitely. Are there fights I’d like to see? Definitely. Are there talented guys who could get him into trouble? Definitely. You have to do it? No! Absolutely not”, declared the American boxer about those fights that Canelo has allegedly avoided.

“I can give you a triple yes (to avoiding some fights), but who cares? Is Cinnamon, people love it, it has a lot of followers and it has generated a lot of emotions. I could say that he has chosen easy rivals, but he learned it from the best (FloydMayweather). Now he’s making money like Floyd,” he added.

Thurman also pointed out that Canelo Álvarez has manipulated the industry at will to stay in the elite, although he clarified that he respects his work because it is something very difficult to achieve.

Finally, the welterweight world champion between 2012 and 2016 released some names with which Canelo Álvarez could (and should) fight to remain in the elite of world boxing.

“Hopefully he will return to his category and take on these challenges: (Jermall) Charlo, (David) Benavidez, ‘Boo Boo’ (Demetrius Andrade), rivals that we have not seen Cinnamon Alvarez. There are many styles that he has not faced and they would be one of the best fights in that division that could take place, “said Thurman.
