Canelo Alvarez Says He’s Got 4 To 5 Years Left Before Retirement
By Robert Segal: Canelo Alvarez says he believes he’s got four to five years left in his career before he retires around 37.
The Mexican superstar has a fortune estimated at $200 million, and he can perhaps double that number with his fights against the Charlo twins, Jermell & Jermall, David Benavidez, Terence Crawford, Artur Beterbiev & rematch with Dmitry Bivol.
Canelo must make minor changes in his fighting style because he must throw combinations to beat the above-mentioned fighters. He can’t count on defeating those types of fighters with his low output style that he’s used since 2021.
“I think I’ve got four years more. Five years, maybe. I’ve been in professional boxing since I was 15 years old. That’s almost 18 years fighting professionally,” Canelo Alvarez said to The Breakfast Club.
“I always said 36 or 37, around that age [is when I would retire]. That will be enough; it’s a lot of years in boxing.
“I’ll have accomplished many things, and then I’ll need to enjoy my life with my family and everything,” said Canelo.
