Who is Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez?
Saúl Álvarez Barragán is a Mexican boxer who's better known by his nickname "Canelo", meaning cinnamon - a reference to his red hair.
The 32-year-old, who was born in Guadalajara, is widely considered to be the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world, and has been for the best part of a decade.
He's won world titles across four weight divisions: light middleweight, middleweight, light heavyweight and super middleweight. He also stands alone as the only boxer to become undisputed champion at super middleweight.
There have been setbacks along the way, including an ill-fated return to light heavyweight against undefeated WBA (Super) champion Dmitry Bivol in May of this year, and a humbling defeat to the then WBA (Super) light middleweight champion, WBC and Ring magazine welterweight champion, Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013.
However, in the grand scheme of things those episodes have probably enhanced his reputation as a boxer who doesn't duck the biggest challenges, though Gennady Golovkin might disagree.
Canelo has won 56 of his 61 professional fights, 39 by knockout. He's lost twice and drawn twice.
His only defeats came against Floyd Mayweather (for Mayweather's WBA (Super) light middleweight title and Canelo's WBC and The Ring light middleweight titles) in September 2013 and against Dmitry Bivol (for Bivol's WBA (Super) light heavyweight title) in May 2022.
His draws came against Jorge Juarez in June 2006, and against Gennady Golovkin (for Golovkin's WBA (Super), WBC, and IBF middleweight titles and Canelo's The Ring middleweight title) in September 2017.
Caleb Plant, Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith, Amir Khan and Miguel Cotto are just some of the stars that have fallen to Canelo.
GGG has won 42 of his 44 professional fights, 37 by knockout. He's lost once and drawn once, both against Canelo.
The split decision draw with Canelo (for Canelo's The Ring middleweight title and GGG's WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, and IBO middleweight titles) in September 2017 was highly contentious. GGG was widely considered to have edged an evenly contested fight, but judge Adalaide Byrd scored heavily in favor of Canelo.
The defeat to Canelo (for the vacant The Ring middleweight title and GGG's WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight titles) in September 2018 was also controversial. Canelo won via a majority decision, though media outlets and the wider public saw the fight differently, with many believing that it should either have been another draw or a victory for GGG.
Some of the big-name boxers that GGG has defeated include Ryōta Murata, Sergiy Derevyanchenko and Kell Brook, though his list of victims would almost certainly be much longer and starrier if he hadn't been avoided like the plague during his peak years.
