Boxing: Canelo: The Mexican’s most important fights, defeats and championships

Mexico’s Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez is considered one of the greatest boxers in the country’s history. After almost 18 years of boxing, Canelo has won eight world championships in five different categories. Despite having a few detractors, the fighter is widely regarded as the current best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. This article provides an overview of his win-loss record and the titles he has won.

Canelo made his boxing debut in 2005 and has so far fought in a total of 62 fights, with 58 wins (39 knockouts), two draws and two defeats. His first loss came in 2013 at the hands of US fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr. His most recent loss was against Russian fighter Dmitry Bivol on 7 May 2022. Canelo has won world championships in the WBC Super Welterweight, WBA Super Welterweight, WBC Middleweight, WBO Super Welterweight, WBA and WBC Middleweight, WBA Super Middleweight, IBF Middleweight, WBO semi-complete weight, WBC and WBA super middleweight, WBO Super Middleweight, and IBF Super Middleweight categories.

The 11th round knockout of Caleb Plant in Las Vegas in November 2021 gave Canelo his place in history as a unifying champion in his weight category. Canelo’s last fight in Mexico was in 2011, and he has since fought 22 times in the United States. On 6 May 2022, he will fight for the first time in Mexico after ten years, against British fighter John Ryder, putting his titles as WBO, WBA, WBC and IBF super middleweight champion at stake.
