Canelo and Steph Curry spar with one another and the former lets Curry know that he’s not nearly as fast as Canelo is with his jabs.
Steph Curry has been an avid golfer for quite some time now. Perhaps he gets it from his father, Dell Curry, who is also very fond of taking it to the green when he please. He could’ve also gotten into it for the simple fact that most NBA players tend to play golf when they have time spare. The most likely scenario is that both these reasons are at play.
NBA players golfing with other professional athletes has always been a treat to watch. Whether it’s Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley back in the 80s or it’s Steph Curry going up against Tom Brady or Phil Mickelson during ‘the Match’, the level of entertainment that is achieved isn’t easily replicable.

Canelo isn’t any stranger to golfing either. The multi-time world champion was a part of a celebrity golfing tournament about a month ago and won the tournament when going up against the likes of Roger Clemons and Brian Katrek.
Canelo nearly knocks out Steph Curry with a quick jab to the face.
This isn’t the first time that Steph Curry and Canelo have sparred with one another on the golf course. Around this same time last year, the two squared off on the green with Canelo easily beating Curry by being a couple millimeters away from landing a jab. History repeatedly itself yesterday as Canelo, once again, nearly landed a jab to Curry’s face.
Canelo almost caught Steph Curry with that left 😄🥊

In all fairness to the 3x NBA champ, he did show decent form on his jab to Canelo. However, the Mexico native just has more reach than Steph and could easily get a jab off to his jab. Not to mention that Alveraz is one of the quickest, light-on-his-feet boxers that’s ever put the gloves on.
It’s safe to say that Steph Curry should stick to being the greatest shooter in the history of the NBA as he most probably does not have a future in any of the celebrity boxing that’s been going on lately.
