Twitter post is in Spanish and this is from ESPN.

I was so high when I got this news last night. I laughed my ass off, but scratched my head in confusion.
At the end of the day, it seems as though people are already accepting it as a stay busy fight and basically an "eff you" to GGG, so I won't cry about it. I don't think Canelo stays at 168....he may have just set himself up to somewhat call some shots in the division whenever he decides to come back up.
You know what I find funny? You know how fickle and bitter boxing fans can be, right? Here it goes....yesterday's Canelo announcement suddenly...just suddenly raised this whole, "Canelo is ducking Jermal Charlo" nonsense.
It's pure nonsense! Most of these stupid motherfuckers have never liked Jermal, let alone both of the Charlo brothers. I mean, people talked so much shit about him after the Jacobs confrontation, and now this? FOH!
I love the Charlos and I'm almost sure he'll give Canelo a run for his money. However, nobody's ducking the Charlos....Canelo fought Lara of all people, why not fight Jermal? From what I understand, Canelo was supposed to get embarrassed in that fight. We saw how it all played out.
So yeah, the only people saying that bullshit are the butthurt GGG fans That's got to be the case. On top of that, people are giving Canelo shit for fighting the "weakest" champ at 168. FOH! He could've fought a stay busy fight against...uh...some no name at MW. I don't see anybody tearing ass about Mikey fighting Lipinets for the strap at 140.
Besides, Canelo's way too small for 168, most of those guys are AT LEAST 5'11 or 6'0 and walk around north of 190 lbs between fights. Hell, Canelo's pushing it at MW, being that most of those guys are about 5'10.
