The 2015 Boxing Glove Awards: Catch-Weight King: Saul Canelo Alvarez




The Boxing Glove Awards 2015
Catch-weight King
Saul Canelo Alvarez.


Saul Canelo Alvarez’s penchant for catch-weight contests, and coming into the ring on fight night with a significant weight advantage over his opponent, has gained him significant criticism this year.  Canelo’s demand for a 155-pound weight limit in his WBC world middleweight title fight with Miguel Cotto in November was just a bit too much for many boxing fans. As were Canelo’s claims that he is not yet a full middleweight, even though he entered the ring against Cotto at over 170 pounds.

This is partly the reason why despite his victory over Miguel Cotto, few people rate Canelo Alvarez as the best in the middleweight division.  However, Canelo has proved himself to be the undisputed Catch-weight champion of the world.
