Just 19 days after his fight against Dmitry Bivol, Saul Alvarez continues his preparation to the maximum in order to win his first fight of 2022. And DAZN Boxing, which closely follows Canelo’s work, showed us his neck trainingexhibiting an exercise that hurts just seeing it.

Before “torture” is calm. Canelo is distracted listening to cumbia in his gym. And then it reaches the limit of him trying to strengthen his neck: he puts a weight on his headwhich is well adjusted because it is tight on her face, like a kind of elastic band that is tied.

Take a few steps forward and then begins to move the neck from side to sidewhile feeling the pressure exerted by the tape that you stretched and also the weight that was placed on your head.

He concludes his exercise by increasing the difficulty: he begins to spin on his own axis, with the context described above. Maximum pressure and force. In his face we can see gestures of pain.

We see Canelo suffer like few times, and even more than in most of his fights. This is the training of a champion, the one that allows him to stay at the top of boxing.

Eddie Hearn, promoter, shared another video that will not make us feel pain, but admiration for the talent of Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez. A mixture of speed and timing to hit impressive.

On May 7, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Canelo will face Dmitry Bivol in search of his 58th professional victory.
