Back then, Alvarez was still in his early days of the sport and he was piling on to the peak with constant wins. But ‘Pretty Boy’ derailed his stint and handed over to him with his very first career loss.

However, Alvarez firmly believes if the duo fought today, he would have unquestionably defeated Mayweather.

But recently, Purist Podcast shared a video on its Instagram handle, wherein a Canelo Alvarez look a like apologized to ‘TBE’ hilariously.

“They finally get to chat after all these years.”

The tussle between Mayweather and Canelo still ranks among the best fight of the former’s career. In this high-voltage contest, he totally overpowered the Mexican boxer, thus showcasing his exemplary boxing prowess.

‘Pretty Boy’ didn’t let Saul Alvarez win a single second of this bout. And as a result, he won this battle with a majority decision. This was the biggest and perhaps a legacy-defining fight for Mayweather. He gave it his best hit in this bout and ended on the winning vertical.

Taking that loss into his strides, Canelo moved ahead to unleash his best self in the ring. With time, he fought the most rugged contenders and eventually won all of those contests. In fact, Alvarez never lost a fight after succumbing to a loss against ‘TBE’.
