Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez of Mexico recorded a win at the weekend that will go down in the books of boxing when all is said and done.
A stoppage over the UK’s Billy Joe Saunders in front of over 73,000 fans in Texas, bringing both sport and the world back in many ways.
An electric night for boxing, sport and wider popular culture in the United States of America, and internationally.
Alvarez showed what he was all about but had to put up with a hijacker at his post-fight press conference.
Alas, not unusual for boxers trying to take limelight off famed fighters like Canelo.
One of his rivals David Benadvidez broke the whole thing down on point here:

Alvarez is in line to take on Caleb Plant next up.
That said, Benavidez could find himself in the running sooner or later.
