Meanwhile, Mexican Canelo, a four-division boxing champion, was widely voted Fighter of the Year for his standout 2021.

The sports stars are believed to have met at a party in Miami, where they were seen together.

It comes just weeks after Verstappen, 24, toppled Britain’s Lewis Hamilton, 36, with the 2021 F1 title – but in a dramatic and controversial fashion.

The pair attended the final race of the season at Yas Marina Level On points, Hamilton appears to coast to victory with five laps remaining.

But Nicolas Latifi cited a late-running safety car finish as the most unbelievable after the crash, in which Verstappen controversially overtook Hamilton by one lap.

Mercedes protested the result on two counts, but F1 chiefs rebuked them and decided not to appeal the decision.

For the 31-year-old Canelo, his run for the undisputed super-middleweight title, was far less controversial.

In a span of 11 months, he defeated Callum Smith, 31, Avni Yildirim, 30, Billy Joe Saunders, 32, and Caleb Plant, 29.

But in an unprecedented move, Canelo is now ready to move up two more stone and two divisions to cruiserweight.

He had a request accepted by the WBC to challenge their cruiserweight champion, with the boxer eyeing a title in his fifth weight category.
