Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez returned to action on Cinco De Mayo weekend in 2023 with a unanimous decision victory over Britain’s John Ryder. This was somewhat of a homecoming for ‘Canelo’, fighting in front of his hometown fans for the first time in a number of years.

Then, ‘Canelo’ added another stellar name to his record, defeating the undisputed super-welterweight champion Jermell Charlo last time out. This was the first undisputed vs undisputed fight in male boxing history, with the Mexican putting on a clinic and comprehensively beating Charlo in his 64th professional boxing bout.

Prior to the Ryder fight, the fighting pride of Mexico was last seen in action when defending his four world super-middleweight titles against long-term foe Gennady Golovkin. This was the third time ‘Canelo’ and ‘GGG’ had shared the ring, with the Mexican putting an end to their rivalry by winning a relatively wide unanimous decision.

Up to now, ‘Canelo’ boasts an incredible boxing record of 60-2-2. The Mexican superstar has been boxing professionally since he was just 14-years-old, having fought for the best part of two decades as a prize fighter.

The 33-year-old has won 60 of his 64 fights, suffering just two defeats throughout his entire career. Of these 60 wins, ‘Canelo’ had won an incredible 39 of them via knockout.

Not many fighters have gone the distance with ‘Canelo’ at 168-pounds. The only men to see the final bell against ‘Canelo’ at super-middleweight are Callum Smith, Gennady Golovkin, Jermell Charlo, John Ryder and Daniel Jacobs. ‘Canelo’ is usually always odds on to beat his opponent with the best offshore sportsbooks, no matter who is in the opposite corner.

Highly touted as the man to take off the boxing mantle from Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, ‘Canelo’ didn’t disappoint and has become the single biggest draw in the entire sport of boxing. He attracts the biggest gates, the most viewers, the biggest pay-per-view revenue, and generates the biggest purses in boxing.

The 33-year-old is the biggest cash cow in the sport, with millions of fans tuning in to watch him for each and every one of his fights.

Alvarez’s first taste of world title success came way back in March 2011 when he defeated Britain’s Matthew Hatton for the WBC World Super-Welterweight Title. ‘Canelo’ won the fight via unanimous decision, becoming world champion for the very first time in the process.

That was the first of 21 world title triumphs for the Mexican. ‘Canelo’ defended the WBC World Title five times before unifying the 154-pound division when defeating Austin Trout back in April 2013. A fight later, ‘Canelo’ then lost for the first time as a pro as he was defeated by the great Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.

Following that defeat, Alvarez soon stepped up to middleweight where he became world champion in defeating Miguel Cotto. After campaigning for another couple of years at middleweight, which included his two mammoth fights against Golovkin, ‘Canelo’ then decided to move up another weight, this time to super-middleweight.

He obliterated Rocky Fielding in three rounds, before then moving back down to middleweight again for a fight against Daniel Jacobs. Next was the light-heavyweight division, where ‘Canelo’ faced Sergey Kovalev for the WBO World Title at 175-pounds. ‘Canelo’ won this fight via stoppage in the 11th round.

After his solo fight at light-heavyweight, ‘Canelo’ decided it was time to completely wipe out the super-middleweight division. In quick succession, Alvarez defeated Callum Smith, Anvi Yildrim, Billy Joe Saunders, and Caleb Plant. In just four fights Alvarez claimed all four world title belts at 168-pounds. Quite an incredible feat.

Alvarez then dared to be great once again, stepping up to light-heavy once more to take on the unbeaten Russian Dmitry Bivol. ‘Canelo’ fell short on that occasion, but soon bounced back by putting an end to his long-term rivalry with ‘GGG’. Alvarez beat Golovkin via wide unanimous decision, also defending his four world super-middleweight titles in the process.

Then of course came his two fights in 2023 against John Ryder and Jermell Charlo. ‘Canelo’ once again won both fights via wide unanimous decision, putting on a show for his hometown fans in Guadalajara, Mexico for the Ryder fight and putting a beatdown on Charlo Las Vegas, Nevada.

That takes us up to now in the career of Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. He has won 21 world title fights in total and has already been crowned a world champion in four different weight classes. The man is an absolute beast inside the boxing ring and will take some beating.

At just 33-years-old, ‘Canelo’ still has plenty left in the tank and is sure to be around world level for the next few years. Who knows, he could even surpass 25 world title fight victories and add a world title in yet another division. You wouldn’t put it past him.
