Canelo Alvarez shockingly took the 2nd loss of his career this past weekend in a unanimous decision loss to Dimitri Bivol.
He moved up to 175 and it seemed like he was just overmatched because he hadn’t looked this bad except for the time he fought Floyd Mayweather back in 2013.
Canelo says he believes he won the fight but not many others share that same sentiment.
Canelo Alvarez lost for the first time in over eight years on Saturday night losing by unanimous decision to WBA (super) light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol.
It was the first time Alvarez has suffered defeat since losing a majority decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in September 2013. Immediately after the fight in his post-fight interview with DAZN’s Chris Mannix, Alvarez said he would be invoking his rematch clause. After taking a shower and getting some time to process what happened over 36 minutes of a hard-hitting affair, Alvarez at his post-fight press conference felt the judges got the scorecards wrong and he should be a two-time light heavyweight champion.
“I won the fight,” Alvarez said through an interpreter. “I think perhaps, maybe, I lost four or five rounds. But I definitely didn’t lose the fight. I think I got a little bit tired towards the final rounds. But I felt good.
“I don’t feel like I lost the fight. Maybe some rounds. Maybe the weight was a slight issue. It made me not feel 100 percent during the fight.”
If you were wondering where he went wrong during the fight just ask Mike Tyson who explains that Canelo forgot about his jab during the fight.
Tyson got on the punching bag to show everyone exactly why Canelo lost the fight. He doesn’t look like someone that regular people should mess with so it also might’ve been a message to fans to leave him alone.
