There is no doubt that Canelo Álvarez unleashes passions among his fans, even when they are successful athletes, as is the case of the current NBA champion Stephen Curry, who was one of the first to live with the boxer after he defeated by unanimous decision to Gennady Golovkin.
The base of the Golden State Warriors shared a video on his Instagram account in which he looks very emotional and where he shows the appreciation he has for Canelo.
“Here with the champion,” the basketball player is heard saying as he hugs the boxer. Immediately, Canelo returned the courtesy and recognized the American’s talent: “We both won this year, he is the best,” he replied.
The video was accompanied by the text “Much respect for Canelo. No golf no life. Champion x champion”, which was accompanied with four trophy emojis alluding to the number of titles each one owns, in the case of Curry they are 4 from the NBA and in the case of Canelo they are 4 of the main world boxing organizations in the super middleweight: The one of the WBC, the WBO, the WBA and the IBF.
It should be remembered that during the evening at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, where the fight was played, Stephen Curry was accompanied by his former teammate, the Mexican-American Juan Toscano.
