Canelo Alvarez historical fights

Canelo has garnered widespread fame thanks to his combination of technical and slugger style, his Mexican heritage, and his spectacular knockout power. He is incredibly durable, fights with plenty of heart, and isn't one to back down from big challenges. 

Here is a collection of his greatest fights:

Canelo vs Golovkin

If it wasn't for the controversial ending, this would've been the Fight of the Year. After much build-up, the undefeated Gennady Golovkin a.k.a. "GGG" finally squared up with Canelo. The Kazakh mauler was the favourite and was outboxing Canelo for most of the fight. But true to his Mexican warrior heritage, Canelo rallied towards the end.

The three judges all split with one favouring GGG, the other for Canelo, and another scoring it a draw. An immediate rematch quickly ensued.

Canelo vs Golovkin II

The hotly-anticipated rematch featured yet another controversial ending but a decided one. This time, it was Canelo who was the aggressor as he pushed the pace of the fight despite getting outboxed again. A contingent of fans and media ruled in favour Golovkin who outlanded Canelo for eight rounds.

Nonetheless, this victory sealed Canelo's place as the best middleweight of his generation. There is still a possibility of a trilogy happening between them and although there is no word on this yet, boxing odds have been opened. 

Canelo vs Chavez

Although Canelo didn't finish this bout, it is arguably his best performance. Canelo shut out the overmatched Chavez winning all 12 rounds from all three judges. Aptly named "Civil War", this high profile boxing match pitted two of Mexico's biggest stars at middleweight.

Canelo was too much for Chavez who was intimidated throughout the fight and was jeered by the Mexican fans. Despite the lacklustre fight, the PPV drew over one million buys making it Canelo's biggest box office performance at this time.

Canelo vs Khan

In what is Canelo's most iconic knockout, the Mexican faced the Englishman who moved up in weight to create this "superfight". Dubbed "Power vs. Speed", it lived up to its name as the smaller Khan used his quick reflexes and agility to outbox Canelo early on. However, it only took one clean shot for Canelo to put Khan down for good. 

This was Canelo's first fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas and would cement his status as the leading man to headline T-Mobile Arena boxing events in the future.

Cotto vs Canelo

In what was Canelo's highest profile fight after Mayweather, he defeated four-weight world champion Miguel Cotto in a dramatic 12-round affair. Though the judges' scorecards indicated Canelo won decisively, most fans and pundits felt the match was much closer. 

Both men showed iron chins and kept coming despite absorbing heavy blows, especially on Cotto's side. The Puerto Rican used his jab and movement to score on Canelo although the Mexican countered with bigger shots. The PPV was a huge success garnering close to a million buys. 

Canelo vs Angulo

Canelo faced fellow Mexican Angulo in a "tune-up" fight following his first defeat against Mayweather. This was arguably his most entertaining bout as Angulo kept coming at him like a man possessed. Canelo weathered Angulo's storm and finished him in the tenth round to get back on the win column.

This victory would restore Canelo's status as an upcoming contender and he would go on to headline several bigger bouts en route to being one of boxing's biggest draws.

Mayweather vs Canelo

 

This was the fight that turned Canelo from a rising star into one. Although many casual fans haven't heard of him until this bout, Canelo ingratiated himself to the world by giving Mayweather a competitive bout. The young Canelo came at Mayweather, especially early on where he took some rounds. Although he faded towards the end, he had already made a solid impression.

The scorecards in this bout were highly dubious as a judge scored the bout a draw. Regardless, Canelo would go on to be a superstar headlining many lucrative PPV's and superfights on his own.
