Creed III was released on March 3rd, 2023, in the United States and starred Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson and Jonathon Majors in a stellar cast. The film also included big boxing names such as José Benavidez Jr., Tony Bellew, and Terence Crawford. However, Canelo’s appearance raised the most talking points.
Alvarez made a cameo as he played the character of Felix Chavez. The character ended up appearing at a promo event for the movie’s character, Adonis Creed’s fight. Even though it was a brief appearance, it was alleged to have earned Canelo $1 million. The movie made $58 million on the first day of its release, while the figure reached $156 million in May 2023. And when the international revenue was added up, the movie made $275 million worldwide. And Canelo’s cameo went some way into achieving that.
