Canelo Alvarez reveals he will fight in UK 'soon' as he tells Brits 'sorry I have to keep beating all your boxers' | The Sun

CANELO ALVAREZ has apologised to British boxing fans for his repeated victories over fighters from these shores.

But the Mexican star would "love" to stage a bout in the UK in the future.

Canelo, 32, already has SEVEN scalps over Brit fighters on his 58-2-2 record.

His first win against a Brit was way back in 2011 when he beat Matthew Hatton to win the WBC light middleweight title.

Since then he has also triumphed over Ryan Rhodes, Amir Khan, Liam Smith, Rocky Fielding, Callum Smith, and most recently Billy Joe Saunders.

And Canelo is targeting another Brit on Saturday night when he takes on John Ryder in his home city of Guadalajara.

Speaking to The Telegraph about his record against British opponents, he said: "I’m sorry to all the UK people. But I had to do it."

Following the undisputed middleweight title clash against Ryder, Canelo is eyeing a bout in the UK.

And the pound-for-pound king promised a UK fight is coming "soon".

On fighting in the UK, he said: "I’ve been thinking this for a long time.
