They’ve done a great production. They’re doing a tremendous job,” Canelo said.

As a fighter, it pleases me, motivates me and encourages me, because it will put more eyes on us,Alvarez said. “As fighters, we should all appreciate that.”

He also said that LeBron James would do good as a boxer. LeBron who stands at 6-foot-8-inches tall and weighs in about 250-pounds could dominate as a pro boxer, according to the Mexican superstar.

He has the height, the body, the physique. But, an athlete of this level — like ourselves — I think we can do other sports fairly well.”

He was then asked which sport he would have played if he wasn’t a boxer.

A Formula 1 driver,” Canelo concluded.
