Canelo Alvarez vs. Alfredo Angulo
MGM Grand Garden Arena - Las Vegas, NV
He may go by many different names, but to the boxing world, he's often referred to as simply "Canelo." A native of Guadalajara, Mexico, Canelo Alvarez had accrued an impressive 42-0-1 heading into arguably the biggest fight of his career at the time, a 2013 bout against none other than Floyd Mayweather Jr. Though he was unable to end Mayweather's undefeated streak, Canelo effectively established himself as a force in the competitive world of boxing, and a fighter who many expect will have a lasting legacy. Active professionally since 2005, Canelo is a former WBC and WBA Light Middleweight champion, having previously collected wins over the likes of Austin Trout and Shane Mosley.
