World Champion Boxer
Career Highlights: One of the greatest pound for pound boxers of all time, Canelo Alvarez has held multiple world boxing championships in four different weight classes. Currently ranked as the world’s best active boxer, pound for pound, by BoxRec, Ring Magazine, and the Boxing Writers Association of American, his titles include the WBA (Super), Ring, and lineal middleweight titles since 2018, and the unified WBA (Super), WBC and Ring super middleweight titles since December. In 2020 Alvarez defeated Callum Smith in a unanimous decision in a unification bout for the WBA and vacant WBC super middleweight titles, and retained those titles defeating Avni Yildirim this past February. Known as a strong counterpuncher who is able to exploit his opponents’ guard while avoiding punches with lots of head and body movement, Alvarez’ impressive record includes 58 total fights with 55 wins (36 by knockout), two draws and one loss. His other titles were the WBA (Unified), WBC and Ring light middleweight titles (2011 to 2013); the WBC (twice), IBF, Ring and lineal middleweight titles (2015 to 2021); WBO light middleweight title (2016 to 2017); and the WBO light heavyweight title in 2019.
