It’s different now,” he said. “I’m [a] different fighter.

“I think he’s good too but I’m a different fighter now. Maybe [it would be a] different fight.”

In 2013, Mayweather ended Canelo's unbeaten record as he won by majority decision.

Canelo is now a four-weight world champion after winning the WBO light heavyweight title.

The 29-year-old currently has 56 fights under his belt and has only been beaten once in his career and that was by the American.

In the bout, the much younger Alvarez was outclassed by Mayweather, whose drawing power forced the Mexican to move up to a catchweight of 152lbs for the bout.

A prime Mayweather schooled Canelo and walked away a dominant winner, despite one judge bizarrely scoring the fight 114-114.
