Oscar De La Hoya Labels Canelo An ‘Old 33-Year-Old’

Fighting isn’t always something you’re born with, but for Canelo Alvarez, it seemed like he was made for the sport.

Growing up in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, Alvarez (59-2-2, 39 KOs) went from fighting on the streets to fighting in the boxing ring.

At the age of 15, Alvarez started competing in local boxing bouts and gained a group of fans who would support him as the years went by.

He went from fighting in small, empty bars to filling up arenas around the world. Today, Alvarez is regarded as one of the best boxers in the sport.

And with his trainer Eddy Reynoso by his side, Alvarez has managed to become a four-division champion. 

Throughout his career, Alvarez has achieved many notable accomplishments that will likely earn him a spot in the Hall of Fame.

His greatest achievement came in 2021 when he secured the final piece of his undisputed status by defeating Caleb Plant, a former champion known for his speed, in the 11th round.

And yet, Oscar De La Hoya has observed a decline in Alvarez’s performance from afar.

Despite being in his early 30s, De La Hoya believes that the wear and tear on Alvarez’s body suggests that his time at the pinnacle of the sport is coming to an end.

“Canelo’s an old 33. Not because he’s been in wars but because he started professionally when he was 15,” De La Hoya
