McGregor was in attendance to support his fellow Irish fighter when he was asked about Canelo.
And to no surprise the UFC star was confident he would beat the boxer, citing his stance as a key factor.
McGregor said: “I’m a southpaw, [John] Ryder was a southpaw, Billie Joe [Saunders] was a southpaw.
“I’ve seen methods, I’ve seen things I’d do and I know he’s waining.
“I’d fight Canelo no f*****g problem. No problem.
Despite his confidence, the super middleweight beat Saunders in 2021 and defeated Ryder in is last fight earlier this month to retain his world titles.
He was asked about McGregor’s comments at an unveiling of his figure at a wax museum in Mexico City.
Canelo replied: “The truth is I haven’t seen what he said because I don’t have my social networks on my phone right now, but I’ll beat him with one hand behind my back.”

McGregor swiftly retaliated, posting online: “Canelo you little ginger sausage. I’d beat you with NO HANDS. Don’t forget.”
Promoter Eddie Hearn could be key to a bout between the two as he may have to co-promote.
The MMA ace has not fought since breaking his leg versus Dustin Poirier in 2021.
But he is ready for a comeback with a clash against Micheal Chandler in the works and it could take place later this year.
