World boxing champion and Mexican boxer, Canelo Alvarez has threatened Argentinian football superstar, Lionel Messi after accusing him of disrespecting his country’s flag.

Reacting to the incident, Alvarez tweeted: ‘Did you guys see Messi cleaning the floor with our jersey and flag,’.

‘He better pray to God that I don’t find him.

‘Just like I respect Argentina, he has to respect Mexico!
