Canelo Alvarez Apologizes For Threatening Lionel MessiDecember 20, 2022
Canelo Alvarez is apologizing to Lionel Messi and the people of Argentina after threatening to kick the soccer superstar’s ass … saying he’s learned from the mistake.
“These last few days I got carried away by the passion and love I feel for my country and made comments that were out of place for which I want to apologize to Messi and the people of Argentina,” the boxing champ said in a statement on Wednesday.
“Every day we learn something new and this time it was my turn.”
Canelo unleashed on Messi following Argentina’s win over Mexico on Sunday … accusing the striker of disrespecting his home country’s jersey in the locker room.
“He better pray to God that I don’t find him!!” Canelo said on Twitter at the time. “Just like I respect Argentina, he has to respect Mexico!”
Despite fans’ attempts to explain the apparent misunderstanding to Canelo — including a message from Messi’s own teammate, Sergio Aguero — the boxer refused to change his stance until Wednesday.
“I wish both teams much success in their matches today and here we will continue supporting Mexico until the end.”
