When is Canelo Álvarez’s next fight?

Canelo Alvarez He decided to go out to the ring on Saturday with a version of the classic ‘I’m still the king’ by Vicente Fernández (it was sung, live, by Fernando Olvera, leader of Maná). It was a declaration of intent that he fulfilled in the ring and celebrated by putting on a crown. He is the only monarch of the supermedia. He knocked out Caleb Plant in Las Vegas in the 11th round and took all four belts (WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO) of the division. He is the eleventh fighter in history to achieve that milestone and the first Latino. One more line of gold for the record of the Mexican.

Canelo proved again in combat that the plans he devises together with Eddy Reynoso are infallible. He executed it perfectly in a fight in which he did not quite look like many expected. Plant is a good fighter and went out to do a locked fight that prevented either of them from shining too brightly. Álvarez dedicated himself to closing spaces, adding power shots and waiting. He did well, although against him it must be said that at certain times he was seen a bit unhinged for knocking out (he was clearly winning on the cards) and that made him take unnecessary blows. Despite this, he listened to his corner, slowed down and when he found the hole he did not fail. With a crochet and an upper he destroyed the American and set the party among the many Mexicans in Las Vegas.

Canelo’s feat is very great. Not only by unifying a division, but by the way. In eleven months he has fought three undefeated champions (Smith, Saunders and Plant) and has made a defense (Yildirim). There is no doubt that he is the best boxer of the moment and this places him very high in the history of noble art.

For the past year, Canelo’s challenge made the question about his future clear. Now, once the goal of unifying a weight has been achieved, What’s next For now, the Mexican made it very clear: “Now i need a break“, he snapped in the ring and reiterated it in the press room. It is logical, four fights, three of them of great importance, in eleven months it is a lot and the body and the mind need disconnection. In fact, Álvarez gave clues. He won’t box again until May and in January he will sit down with his coach and manager, Eddy Reynoso, to choose a new path.. He also claimed to have been happy with Premier Boxing (he will earn around 140 million). Golovkin, Benavidez and Beterbiev, future main ones.
