    Unified middleweight world champion, Canelo Alvarez, and former UFC two-division champion, Henry Cejudo, were recently in a verbal back-and-forth.

    Canelo Alvarez promised to be more active after COVID put a hold on the boxing world, and now the WBA (Super) and WBC super-middleweight champion will return to the ring for the second time in 70 days when he defends his titles against Avni Yildirim from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, live and exclusively on DAZN in over 200 territories worldwide (excluding Mexico).  Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KOs) last fought in December when he thoroughly dominated Callum Smith en route to a unanimous decision to claim Smith’s WBA (Super) title and the vacant WBC championship. But once he won the WBC title, he would have to defend it within 90 days against Yildirim (21-2, 12 KOs). Alvarez committed to the fight, giving fans another opportunity to see boxing’s biggest star in a span of fewer than three months. Yildirim is coming off of a controversial technical decision loss to Anthony Dirrell back in 2019....
    SAUL ALVAREZ steps back inside the ring this weekend to fight Avni Yildirim just two months after outclassing British star Callum Smith.

    Caleb Plant has a mandatory title defense against Caleb Truax, but a recent media call showed that all roads lead to a unification bout with Canelo Alvarez.  Caleb Plant is the undefeated IBF super middleweight champion of the world, and he could be in store for a massive 2021. Brown also believes that Alvarez is also in a good position for a unification down the line. “I think they are. Everything you read today with Canelo,” said Brown. “The only thing Caleb Plant has on his mind is Caleb Truax.” Alvarez vs. Plant for undisputed control of the super middleweight division would probably be the most attractive and profitable boxing bout in 2021 outside of a probable Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua heavyweight unification contest. Keep your fingers crossed that no upsets disturb an ideal future Alvarez vs. Plant fight. Both seem prepared to cross paths later in 2021. Next:...

    CANELO ALVAREZ continued his journey to becoming one of the greatest pound-for-pound boxers in history on Saturday night after a dominant win over Callum Smith. The Mexican superstar, 30, put in a near-flawless performance to cruise to victory. 5How Canelo compares to the Paul brothers Canelo has now won 54 of his 57 fights, drawing twice and losing just once - to 50-0 Floyd Mayweather, no less. He is now a world champion at FOUR different weights - part of a small, elite group to hold that honour. Alvarez has won belts from welterweight to light-heavyweight - most-recently beating 6ft 3in Brit Smith at super-middleweight. With very little left to prove in boxing, you'd think Canelo would be able to simply enjoy his win. But, almost immediately after his Smith victory, he called out loudmouth YouTuber brothers Jake and Logan Paul. The American pair have been hitting the headlines in...
    Will they or won’t they? Talk of a trilogy fight between Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin resurfaced (though, to be clear, it never really went away) after both recorded impressive victories.  The day after long-time rival Golovkin had dominated against Kamil Szeremeta to defend his IBF middleweight title for a record 21st time, Canelo demonstrated his undoubted skills to defeat the much-taller Callum Smith on points up at super-middleweight.  Unsurprisingly, they were asked about facing each other in the aftermath. There was a split-decision draw between them in September 2017, followed a year later by a contentious Canelo win on points.  A third episode seemed an absolute certainty at one stage, but does it still make sense now? As we come towards the conclusion of an unprecedented year amid a global health pandemic, it seems the ideal time to weigh up the pros and cons for two of the biggest names in boxing.  A third fight MUST happen Canelo: The Mexican came out on top in the previous meeting, but...

Following a massive turmoil with his former promoters, Canelo has remained inactive for a long time.

    BOXING fans were missing out on some of the biggest fights possible long before the Covid-19 pandemic struck and 2020 will soon reveal whether that gutting trend will continue. The coronavirus fallout, the travel restrictions, the fan ban snatching around 40 per cent of fighter earnings and the lack of a vaccine all point to the biggest match-ups getting delayed. 11Anthony Joshua will face Bulgarian hardman Kubrat Pulev on December 12Credit: News Group Newspapers Ltd But top UK promoters Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren have suggested the new streamlined sport will encourage fewer tune-up and learning fights, so the must-see bouts get made.

The Mexican is preparing for his return to the ring after he was was released from his contract with Golden Boy Promotions and his record £278million deal with DAZN. 4Here's how the two fighters compare ahead of the showdown He has not fought since he jumped up to light-heavyweight last November to win the WBO belt against Sergey Kovalev.

Eddy Reynoso on board Canelo Alvarez has no fight in sight but his team is still mulling prospective opponents. © Provided by Boxing Junkie For example, Eddy Reynoso, Alvarez’s trainer, likes the idea of fighting Jermall Charlo but says a showdown with welterweight champ Errol Spence Jr. isn’t likely any time soon because of weight. Caleb Plant, a super middleweight beltholder, is a good option. Callum Smith, another 168-pound champ, isn’t as viable because Reynoso believes Smith is having trouble making that weight. Charlo (31-0, 22 KOs) is a middleweight titleholder coming off an impressive unanimous-decision victory over Sergiy Derevyanchenko in September. Reynoso spoke to ESPN Deportes about Charlo and the other potential opponents for his star fighter, whose best weight is...
    Is Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Teofimo Lopez the next Mayweather vs. Canelo? On Oct. 17, rising star Teofimo Lopez will put his lightweight belt on the line when he faces unified champion and pound for pound elite Vasyl Lomachenko. This fight will be a big jump for the young Lopez, who is attempting something no one has done since Canelo Alvarez in 2013. In the case of Lomachenko-Teofimo, however, the size difference seems more profound. Teofimo will not be at lightweight much longer, and Lomachenko is very small for the division. Lomachenko himself has noted the difference in both men’s builds, saying that Lopez’s arms seem to be three times as large as his own. In addition, the Lomachenko-Lopez fight will be at the lightweight limit of 135 lbs, so Teofimo will not have to shave off additional weight. Maybe this will help Lopez fare better than Canelo did in terms...

    CHRIS EUBANK JR is seeking a mega boxing match-up with Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez... but how do the two compare? As one of the world's best-paid sportsman, Mexican fighter Canelo has conquered four weight divisions and would undoubtedly be the favourite in any contest. 1 Last in action in November, talk of a fight with either Callum Smith or Billy Joe Saunders has calmed recently, leaving room for Eubank Jr to stake his claim. A switch to the United States has helped the Brit regather momentum in his career that looked to have stalled before last year's victory over James DeGale. He told Sky Sports: “Canelo Alvarez, that's the No1 fight that I want right now. “I don't think anyone on the planet would make a better opponent for him. “Most guys are going in there to run and survive, I'm going in there to destroy. “I know I can beat him,...
