Four division world champion Saul Alvarez doesn’t see a reason to fight in the light heavyweight division ever again.
The Mexican superstar is set to face Britain’s Billy Joe Saunders this May 8th in the US in a super-middleweight unification bout.
For the last couple of years, Alvarez has been going up and down in the divisions, making a name for himself and establishing himself as P4P best.
But according to Canelo, he won’t be fighting again in the light heavyweight division. He fought in the 79 kg category back in 2019 when he KO’d former WBO world champion Sergey Kovalev.
“76 kilos is the most I’m going to fight at. We took a risk to win the fourth title, but I did feel a little slow, I didn’t feel like I was at my best, but we already won the fourth title,” Canelo told ESPN Deportes.
If Alvarez manages to beat Saunders he’ll be the owner of three of the four major belts and a potential undisputed fight with Caleb Plant could be staged in September or October.
