Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez successfully defended his WBC and WBA super middleweight world titles against first body mandatory challenger Avni Yildirim in the undercard main event held at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.

Alvarez, (55-1-2, 37 KOs), the sport’s biggest star and best pound-for-pound fighter, made quick work of his limited foe while defending his WBA and WBC titles at 168 pounds via third-round TKO in front of 15,000 socially distanced fans at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.

The 30-year-old Mexican star put on quite the performance amid fireworks and a live concert on his walk to the ring alone. After Yildirim (21-3, 12 KOs) hid behind his high guard for the first two rounds, he finally succumbed to a stiff right cross from Alvarez that dropped him in Round 3.
