Odell Beckham Jr. is no stranger to pep talks before big games. Throughout his days at LSU and his various stops around the NFL, he has surely heard his fair share of pre-game speeches. Well, he attempted to give one of his own this week, but it didn’t pertain to the sport of football.
Odell Beckham Jr. will likely not join the Los Angeles Rams in their bid to defend their Super Bowl title. Instead, Beckham Jr. has directed his energy toward helping Saul “Canelo” Alvarez defend his undisputed super middleweight title on September 17, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Days before the Mexican champion’s next bight fight, the star wide receiver called him and offered him a pep talk of his own.
“Let’s go ahead, let’s kick his a**,” he said, per TMZ.
“Let’s show him one, two and the third one is all you.”
Alvarez didn’t offer much in return. However, he did reply with a smile and a promise to defend his championship belts.
“For you, my friend,” Alvarez replied.
Odell Beckham Jr. is no stranger to title fights. Just last month, he was spotted ringside as Oleksandr Usyk defended his heavyweight titles against Anthony Joshua in Saudia Arabia. With a number of high-profile fights set for the fall, it’s likely that this won’t be the last we hear of Beckham Jr. in the boxing world.
