The Mexican fighter dawned yesterday as the number one fighter on the planet in the list of the prestigious magazine The Ring, a decoration that only a Mexican had obtained, the idol of Culiacan, Sinaloa, Julio Cesar Chavez.

Álvarez beat Sergey Kovalev on Saturday night. He knocked him out and won the OMB's semi-complete scepter, thus obtaining his fourth crown in different weights.

There were other fighters like Juan Manuel Márquez who fought at the time for that first place but stayed close, did not get the necessary votes from the panel that makes up The Ring to reach it.

Saul was in third place and went up to first with this result. Now, the second place is for Vasiliy Lomachenko and third for Terence Crawford.

It is estimated that the return of "Canelo" to the ring will be on May 2, and the headquarters would be the T-Mobile Arena of Las Vegas, according to information that has CANCHA. The rival will be known until December, as "Canelo" will make a holiday trip to Europe and plans to go to Saudi Arabia to support champion Andy Ruiz.
