It will almost be nine years since Floyd Mayweather Jr. gave Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez what is so far the only defeat in the record of the Mexican boxer.
On September 14, 2013 when ‘The Money’ was imposed on a Saúl Álvarez very different from the current one, who is much more focused, more veteran and experiencedbesides that for some the best boxer pound for pound.
The former British boxer, Ricky Hatton, gave his opinion on the matter and considered that that lawsuit made the Guadalajara man great and has made him the unbeatable boxer he is today:
“I think Mayweather when he fought Canelo, Canelo didn’t win a round, right? I think Mayweather created a monster in many ways.”
in conversation with talkSPORTHatton also highlighted the figure that Canelo represents for children and future generations who want to dedicate themselves to this sport, with the premise that if you fall you get up.
“It is an example for many young people that if they beat you, it does not mean that your career is over. That defeat can make or break someone and it made Canelo”, mentioned the ‘Hitman’.
Canelo Alvarez unbeatable
The tenacity, confidence, character and discipline are some of the characteristics that those who watch Canelo Álvarez train in his camp located in San Diego have seen him, always under the watchful eye of Eddy Reynoso.
Some think the 32-year-old will finish his career undefeated, including Hatton, who says he doesn’t see anyone who can beat Canelo.
“I see Canelo retiring without losing again. I don’t see anyone who can beat him. He is so exciting, strong, powerful and explosive”
In the opinion of the British, such is the power of Saúl Álvarez that could go to light heavyweight “and win world titles”.
