Canelo Alvarez stole the show in front of a whopping, record crowd of 70000 fans at the home of the Dallas Cowboys. ‘Saul’ stuck to his basics, and connected with a massive uppercut in the eighth round, that had Billy Joe Saunders’ corner throw in the towel after the end of the round.
With that win, Alvarez just has one belt left to conquer in the super-middleweight division to become the undisputed super-middleweight champion. The combat sports community was in awe of the Mexican’s latest performance, and here are a few of the Twitter reacts from notable combat sports athletes.
