Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez is the undisputed super-middleweight champion of the world, a four-weight world titleholder, boxing's hottest ticket and universally recognised as the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the sport today.
And he has no intention of resting on his laurels.
Canelo's quest for one of the greatest legacies boxing has ever seen continues on Saturday when he takes on WBA (Super) light-heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol. Bivol is undefeated thus far as a professional and poses a very difficult challenge for the Mexican.
However, Alvarez has conquered everything put in front of him over the past nine years, and has already held gold at 175lbs when he defeated Sergey Kovalev in 2019.

Mexican pound-for-pound legend Canelo last hit the ring in November when he knocked out US pro Caleb "Sweethands" Plant in the 11th round to take possession of all four super-middleweight (168lbs) titles and become "the undisputed".
Now Canelo has set his sights on Dmitry Bovil's light-heavyweight strap. It's not Canelo's first rodeo, mind – the Mexican previously stepped up to light-heavyweight (175lbs) in 2019, knocking out Sergey Kovalev to win the WBO title. If Canelo can can defeat Bivol he'll likely set up a trilogy fight against two-time rival Gennady Golovkin.
Bivol represents a much tougher challenge than Kovalev, however. The 20,000-strong crowd at the T-Mobile Arena will be mostly cheering for Canelo, but the Kyrgyz-born Russian professional has proved he's a dangerous opponent, beating Joe Smith Jr prior to cruising past Umar Salamov on points four months ago.
