Similar to the old holiday shopping axiom of “what to buy for the one who has everything”, there is nothing more to say about the greatness of Canelo Alvarez, but he hasn’t deserved it yet. The way piled up on him.
The 31-year-old Alvarez achieved his goal of becoming the first Mexican boxer to win the undisputed championship When he stopped the undefeated Caleb Plant Last weekend unified all four super middleweight world champions.

Then came the trilogy with middleweight champion Gennadiy Golovkin, which is undoubtedly the hope of streaming platform DAZN, which played Alvarez’s first six games before Plante competition.
No matter which direction Alvarez decides to go, the crowd will follow, because the biggest attraction of the sport continues his unique career for about 16 years after he became a professional player for the first time as an unknown teenager. .
