Delirious Canelo Álvarez threatens Messi after accusing him of disrespecting the Mexican flag

World champion boxer Canelo Álvarez is mad at Lionel Messi and warned that the next time they see each other it's not going to be pleasant for the Argentine. Why is Canelo so angry? According to him, Messi disrespected the Mexican flag and the Mexican jersey after Argentina's 2-0 win over El Tri in the World Cup. 

The big problem with Canelo's story is that Messi did not disrespect any Mexican symbol, which makes the whole situation dumb.
