Canelo Alvarez is, as of now, the world’s No.1-positioned fighter, as indicated by Insider.
What’s more, he has said he could be around for a long time to come as he would not like to hang up his gloves until 2028.
[I’ll fight for another] six or seven years, that’s what we think, we’ll see, but six or seven more years we’ll be here,” Canelo told TUDN, according to a separate Boxing Scene report.
On his intended activity in the 2021 season, Alvarez said: “The truth is that there is enough time [to get in four fights], and I am very ready to fight. I feel thrilled, grateful, and motivated to go to Miami, a new location for my fights.”
The sessions would be in the 168-pound super middleweight division – a weight class he is now a hero in, having won the WBC and WBA titles for his agreeable choice success over Callum Smith in December.
He right now has no designs to get back to light heavyweight. His solo session in that division stays a knockout success over Sergiy Kovalev, for which he won the WBO title at 175-pounds before emptying the belt later.
“[My trainer] Eddy [Reynoso] already told me not to fight in that division because I’m giving away too many advantages,” said Alvarez.
“Right now, we are focused on winning these titles [at 168].”
Currently, Canelo is scheduled to fight Avni Yildirim to defend his middleweight belt before a unification bout against Billy Joe Saunders.
