Saul Alvarez, or simply known as Canelo (Spanish for Cinnamon) because of his trademark red hair, grew up in the small town of Juanacatlán, Jalisco, Mexico. The youngest of eight children, Canelo followed in the footsteps of his six older brothers and took up boxing at the age of 13. Shortly thereafter, Alvarez won gold at the 2005 Junior Mexican National Championships and unable to find suitable opponents by the age of 15, decided to turn pro with only twenty amateur fights under his belt.
Since turning pro, Canelo has amassed a record of 42 wins with only 1 defeat, winning two world titles, his first at only 21 years old. His hard-hitting, forward-moving style coupled with his unique good looks, helped him become a fixture on the Mexican boxing scene. With the assistance of his American promoter, Golden Boy Promotions, Canelo has developed into an international superstar and the most famous boxer to come out of Mexico since Oscar de la Hoya. After his record breaking fight with Floyd Mayweather, Canelo will now carry his own pay-per-view events on SHOWTIME beginning March 08, 2014 against Alfredo Angulo.
