Canelo Alvarez Doesn’t Want To Be Compared To Other Fighters

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (56-1-2, 38KOs) is brimming with confidence ahead of his super fight against Caleb Plant on November 6.

This is Alvarez’s chance to become the first Mexican and Latin American fighter to win the undisputed super middleweight championship.

In a conversation with Brian Custer on The Last Stand podcast, Alvarez clarified that he is not racking up records to be compared to any fighter.

“I’m doing my history. Other fighters do their history,” the champ said. “I don’t want to compare myself to other fighters. I do things for myself, my history. Everyone has their own history.”

The pound-for-pound king has already unified the WBA/WBC/WBO titles. He is now eyeing the IBF super-middleweight title which has been with Plant since 2019.

Both boxers share bad blood and have been involved in scuffles even before entering the ring.

Plant has been undefeated in his career, winning all 29 showdowns so far. There’s no doubt that he has never faced an opponent that matches Alvarez’s caliber.

“It means a lot to my legacy. This fight is very important for me, for Mexico, for my fans, for my team,” Canelo told Custer. “It’s very important because at the end of the day I just want to make history.”
