Brandon Moreno has discussed Kamaru Usman’s hopes of challenging multiweight boxing champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez within the square circle.
Usman has been incredibly dominant since capturing the UFC welterweight title. He is now even starting to overlap the division, having already fought Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington twice.
‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ also has individual victories over Leon Edwards, Gilbert Burns and Tyron Woodley.
Moreno and Alvarez know each other well and have even trained together in the past. That makes the UFC’s first Mexican-born champion the perfect view to take on a potential crossover fight for Usman.
Speaking to Michael Bisping for BT Sports, Moreno had this to say:
“I think those statements that Kamaru Usman made earlier talk about a champion trying to get a new challenge in his life. And I respect that. Because now he’s just getting rematches. Maybe he’s starting to feel a little tired.” The same man, the same man, the same man. So talk about boxing. That’s very specific. Canelo is a monster man.’
