Canelo Alvarez has revealed what he believes is the best knock-out of his career to date – and it happened in 2015.
Canelo said DAZN of his 39 career stops to date, James Kirkland’s third-round KO is his own personal favourite.
“The knockout against Kirkland was spectacular. I felt his strength, he was really strong.”
“He came to knock me out in the first round. So I had to do something quick because he was going to lunge at me for the whole game. “
“So it was one of the most spectacular knockouts of my career.”

Those days Canelo was running in light weight again – two weight classes and one kick lower than the division where he currently holds all four belts, super middleweight.
The Mexican is back to winning ways last time in his third fight with long-term enemy Gennadiy Golovkinwere handed a unanimous decision in what turned out to be a less than appealing contest, with Kazakhstan’s best days clearly behind him and even Canelo perhaps not quite at his best. he.
Where Canelo goes next has been the subject of much speculation, with a rematch with Dmitry Biviol in the lightweight division arguably his personal favorite after the Russians beat him for more than a decade back in may.
Fans have been calling for a showdown at 168lbs against David Benavidez, who many believe is Canelo’s toughest test yet in weight class. However, when asked about a potential fight with Benavidez, the undisputed champion seemed a bit dismissive and downplayed the 25-year-old’s credentials.
