The long-awaited return of Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is growing ever closer, and boxing fans all over the world are excited for the 31-year-old lightweight to grace the ring once again. The Mexican has not fought since his TKO victory over Caleb Plant back in November
last year, in which Canelo retained the WBA (Super), WBC, WBO, and The Ring super middleweight titles, whilst also winning the IBF super-middleweight title.
