De la Hoya’s Continued Criticism of Canelo Alvarez

During a recent media appearance, the ‘Golden Boy’ expressed his opinions on Canelo Alvarez.

“I strongly believe that Canelo doesn’t enjoy sharing the spotlight. Every time I was alongside Canelo, it felt like I was stealing his limelight. As a 10-time world champion across six divisions and an Olympic gold medalist, I was capturing his attention, something he didn’t appreciate. He prefers me to stay away,” De la Hoya stated in an interview with The MMA Hour.
