What is next for Canelo Alvarez?
Canelo Alvarez has competed in multiple weight divisions over the span of his career. Currently competing in the super-middleweight division, Alvarez aims to become the unified super-middleweight champion of the world.
As of now, Canelo Alvarez holds the WBO super-middleweight title, the WBC super-middleweight title and WBA super-middleweight title. Thus, the only major world achievement missing from his resume is the IBF super-middleweight title, the procurement of which will make him the undisputed king of the super-middleweights.
In addition to the three major world titles, Canelo Alvarez also holds The Ring super-middleweight title.
Alvarez’s most recent fight against Billy Joe Saunders ended in the number one pound-for-pound fighter forcing his opponent to retire from the fight after the conclusion of round 8.
Reports later revealed that Billy Joe suffered a quadripod injury, which basically entails a series of fractures in and around the orbital bone.
Canelo Alvarez, meanwhile, has his eyes set on becoming the undisputed super-middleweight champion. The only person standing between him and his objective is the American boxer and IBF super-middleweight champion, Caleb Plant.
Although Alvarez was quick to call Plant out after his victory over Billy Joe Saunders, there has been no official confirmation of the bout as of yet.
