Mexico’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is just a few days away from completing the trilogy against Gennady Golovkin, in what is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated fights of the year.
Everything is ready for both fighters to step into the ring next Saturday at the T-Mobine Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The fighter from Jalisco, the top representative of Mexican boxing at the moment, has forged a name for himself and even became the undisputed 168-pound champion in 2021.
Lucky in the ring and in the money
His successes in the ring have come with great financial rewards.
According to Forbes magazine, Alvarez was ranked in the top 10 highest-earning athletes until 2022, with a gross income of $90 million dollars.
In addition to the millions he has earned after each fight he has won, he has been able to move his earnings in various businesses, which currently has him in a fairly comfortable economic position.
He wants to be a billionaire despite the fact that he did not study
“Canelo” has it clear, he wants to become a billionaire, and although he does not have enough studies, he has a taste for learning, which has helped him in his investments and business.
“I want to be a billionaire in business, that’s what I want to be, a billionaire in business. I didn’t study, I have no studies, I come from very low but I like to learn, I like to know many things,” said the tapato in an interview with Graham Bensinger.
He also said that he sees boxing as a pleasure, as something he is passionate about, not as something to make money.
“I could retire and live in peace, but I like what I do, boxing is my life, until I can I will be here, I have always wanted boxing to be just a pleasure, something I love, not to do it for money, so I always do boxing because I like it, because I enjoy it, not because I am going to make money,” said the boxer.
