Henry Cejudo traded words with Canelo Alvarez

The pound-for-pound king and Reynoso were guests on Mike Tyson’s podcast, with ex-UFC champion Cejudo present.

There, the Olympic gold medalist was captured talking up a crossover fight with lightweight sensation Garcia.

Asked by EsNEWS for a response, Canelo, 30, said: “Why not?”

Cejudo, 34, then joked: “He’s being nice about it! He’s not telling the truth.

“I’m ready. I’m ready, somebody’s gotta bend the knee for Triple-C.”

Cejudo has previously challenged Garcia, 22, who himself has called out UFC legend Conor McGregor, 32, and his sparring partner Dillon Danis, 27.

But Cejudo later retired in May after beating Dominick Cruz, 36, and vacated his bantamweight belt.

It was inherited by Petr Yan, 28, but the Russian threw it away after illegally kneeing Aljamain Sterling, 31, before being disqualified.
