Which world titles has Canelo Alvarez held?

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (56-1-2, 38KOs) recorded career win number 56 on Saturday night, stopping Billy Joe Saunders after eight rounds at the AT&T Stadium in Texas.

The victory saw Canelo add Saunders' WBO super middleweight world title to the WBC and WBA Super championships that he already held. His capture of the WBO belt means Alvarez has now won a staggering 15 world championships (including Ring Magazine titles).

Canelo has now won the following titles during his 16-year, 59-fight professional career:

WBA super welterweight

WBC super welterweight

WBO super welterweight

Ring super welterweight

WBA middleweight

WBC middleweight (x2)

IBF middleweight

Ring middleweight (x2)

WBC super middleweight

WBO super middleweight

Ring super middleweight

WBO light heavyweight

 

Canelo is the second boxer in history to hold world titles in three weight divisions simultaneously. The first to acheive this was the legendary Henry Armstrong, regarded by some as the greatest fighter ever.

 

What is next for Canelo Alvarez?

It did not take long for Alvarez to call out his next opponent after defeating Saunders. Canelo now holds three of the four recognised world titles at super middleweight - and he wants the final piece of the puzzle before the end of the year.

IBF champion Caleb Plant is the only man standing between Alvarez and total dominance of the 168-pound division. Expected to be back in the ring in September, Canelo wants Plant to be the man in the opposite corner when he does make his return.
