Canelo Isn’t Going Anywhere In The Next 6-7 Years
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (56-2-1) is here to stay for the next few years and has just rebuffed rumors of bidding farewell to boxing anytime soon.
The undisputed 168-pound champion believes that he has six to seven more years under his belt before he considers hanging up his gloves.
“I don’t like to think of myself outside the boxing ring. I want to keep enjoying my boxing for many more years. In a sport as physical as this, it is pretty much common sense that your career is short,” Alvarez said.
“I am very positive about my career and I don’t like to assume things in the world of sport. However, I would say [about my career’s length] six to seven years. But we never know what happens in the future,” he added.
Considering the career Canelo has had already, it is fair to say that the 31-year-old will walk into the Hall of Fame if he considers retiring tomorrow. Since starting his career in 2005, the Mexican has gone to achieve titles across four divisions.
At present, he is also weighing in his options of having a potential fight against UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman once he captures a couple more belts.
Canelo is open to boxing the undefeated UFC welterweight king once he is done cementing his legacy in the sport.
