Kamaru Usman calls out Canelo Alvarez again and ignores Dana White's warning to UFC champion

KAMARU USMAN insists he IS serious about fighting and beating Canelo Alvarez – despite UFC chief Dana White warning him off.

UFC welterweight champion Usman claims he is determined to swap sports to face pound-for-pound boxing great Alvarez.

Scornful White has told the MMA hero: "C'mon man let's stop this s***."

But when asked about his hopes by TMZ Sports, Usman replied: "I've already said the name that interests me. Canelo. That's what interests me.

"If I don't believe in myself, then why would I do it? Of course I believe in myself. 

"He's amazing. I'm not taking nothing away from him. 

"But, how often does someone get to test themselves against the best?"

And when reminded of White's verdict, he added: "That's Dana, but I'm fighting. Dana's boss, man, but I'm the one who's fighting."

White gave his damning assessment of Usman's desire to face Alvarez in the boxing ring after watching the 31-year-old outclass Caleb Plant to become undisputed super-middleweight champ.


He said: "He doesn't want to fight Canelo, he doesn't want to fight Canelo.

"C'mon man let's stop this s***."

"[Kamaru] doesn't want to fight Canelo – because Alvarez is so damn dangerous in the ring."
