Another win for Canelo Alvarez tonight in Florida.
Fair play to opponent Yildrim who collected a big pay day. He goes back to Istanbul a wealthy man.
Canelo moves on next to a legitimate test against Billy Joe Saunders in May.
Saunders before the fight had hinted on social media that he would be fighting Canelo as much.
However, the organizers of the event tonight were so confident in Canelo winning not only did they have all the fight posters ready straight away to announce the Saunders fight, also the following.
This was happening in the arena during the post-fight interviews:
No expenses sparred tonight on the ole production. Not sure if the app was crashing again but by all counts no complains yet.
Fair play in that regard.
Certainly splashing the ole cash to impress Alvarez no doubt.
Good to see at least Alvarez boxing tonight as opposed to having to wait until May.
Having some boxing on is better than no boxing on at the end of the day.
Think about that.
