“That’s the MOST IMPORTANT thing,” Brandon Moreno gives word of wisdom for Canelo Alvarez ahead of GGG trilogy
Canelo Alvarez- Brandon Moreno
Both Canelo Alvarez and Brandon Moreno have made Mexico proud with their contributions in their respective field of combat sports. Moreno is the former UFC flyweight champion who also became the first-ever Mexico-born UFC champion in history. Moreno’s journey was one full of ups and downs and eventually leading up to the top and never backing down. Now, Moreno is on the verge of writing the final chapter of one of the greatest UFC rivalries against current UFC flyweight champion, Deiveson Figueiredo.
Alvarez, fair to say, is one of the greatest boxers in the history of the sport. The only undisputed super-middleweight champion in the history of boxing and DAZN’s 2021 Fighter of the Year, Alvarez is known to be a world champion in 4 weight classes. He is known for his wins over the likes of Amir Khan, Gennady Golovkin, Avni Yildrim, Sergey Kovalev, Miguel Cotto, Liam Smith, James Kirkland, Callum Smith, Billy Joe Saunders, Caleb Plant and many more.
Brandon Moreno refrains from advising Canelo Alvarez on the boxing aspect due to THIS reason but gives professional advice
In an interview with The Schmo, Brandon Moreno talks about him touring around for the UFC, his fourth title fight against Deiveson Figueiredo to be held in near future, his suspicion of Figueiredo remaining at flyweight and much more. In the midst of all, Moreno is also asked about what advice he would give to his Mexican counterpart in boxing and friend, Canelo Alvarez ahead of his trilogy fight against Gennady “Triple G” Golovkin.
“I am a mixed martial artist man, I don’t feel like I have the right position to give him advice because he’s a specialist, he’s a boxer,” says Moreno. “But talking about the professional career I am going to say like- Man, just keep going, obviously I mean, he tried to do something really good for his legacy and the history of boxing… he tried and that’s the most important thing. So now he has a fight against Triple G, a fight who a lot of people wanted to see, so just enjoy the moment and keep [building] more legacy,” concludes Moreno.
What do you make of Moreno’s advice for Alvarez? Do you think fighters often forget that they are a part of a larger-than-life journey and therefore can’t be happy due to the heat of the ongoing competition? Do you think it’s often common and maybe fair to overlook these moments in order to increase the likelihood of attaining greatness? Who do you think wins between Alvarez and GGG in their final trilogy? Who do you think wins between Moreno and Figueiredo in their fourth title fight?
