SaulCanelo’ Alvarez produced a masterful display last month to beat Britain’s Callum Smith. The victory secured his status atop the pound-for-pound boxing rankings and was another major pay day for the Mexican. So what is Canelo Alvarez net worth?

What is Canelo Alvarez’ net worth?

Incredibly, Canelo turned professional aged only 15 and has been fighting in the paid ranks for half his life.

Canelo is now worth a staggering $140 million (£102 million), according to Celebrity Net Worth.

And his latest performance against Smith suggested he’s only getting better. It seems there will be plenty more mouth-watering pay days for Canelo in 2021.

World titles at four weights

With 57 fights under his belt, Canelo is a veteran of the sport. He has been involved in huge contests over the years, attracting millions of spectators to ringside and on screens around the world.

The 30-year-old has just one loss on his record, against the legendary Floyd Mayweather in 2013.

However, he bounced back brilliantly from that defeat. He has beaten Miguel Cotto, Gennady Golovkin and Sergey Kovalev to win world titles in four weight classes.

Next two opponents lined up

Canelo has already achieved so much in his illustrious career. But he isn’t resting on his laurels yet.

The Mexican superstar is set to take on Avni Yildirim next month:

And Canelo is so confident of victory he has lined up an opponent for May. According to The Athletic, Canelo will step into the ring with Britain’s Billy Joe Saunders.

Can Saunders beat the Canelo curse?

Saunders will be the seventh British fighter to face Canelo, and he’ll hope to fare better than the others.

Canelo made light work of his previous British opponents. He beat both the Smith brothers and delivered a highlight-reel knock-out to defeat Amir Khan in 2016.

Now 31, Saunders is unbeaten in 30 fights and will hope to shock the world.

Can he pull it off? He will certainly have his work cut out against the best boxer on the planet.
