In a pro career of fifty fights, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has only lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr., but the 26-year-old has inherited Mayweather’s spot as the current biggest draw in boxing. On May 6, Canelo will fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in a Mexican super-fight years in the making.
Though many are still pining for Canelo to step into the ring with Gennady Golovkin to truly prove himself as the best fighter in boxing, he has more than earned his spot as the sport’s biggest star. Many of his most memorable fights have ended in highlight-reel knockouts, such as his wins over James Kirkland and Amir Khan.
