The p4p star shares a different love for golf. In his leisure time, he makes sure to dedicate a certain amount of time to this sport.

Recently, Alvarez appeared on the GQ Sports’ YouTube channel and called out the great Tiger Woods. He said, “I would love to play with Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods, please, let’s play around.”

Although the Guadalajara native has a different love for golf, his prime attention most of the time is for the sport of boxing only. That’s one of the biggest reasons why Alvarez is so successful. Last weekend, Canelo attacked Caleb Plant’s body and used his tactics to get ‘Sweethands’ to bend. It worked in his favor as he managed to overwhelm Plant with a finish in round 11.

In this fight, Canelo gave Plant his very first career loss. Moreover, he also proved why he is the supreme puncher of the 168-pound division.
