That apart from boxing, Alvarez has a grand passion for golf is a piece of common knowledge. On 10 Rounds with Canelo Alvarez, the very first question he faced was about golf.
When asked about his favorite golf player, Canelo replied, “Tiger Woods. I’ve obviously always been a fan of his. When I started playing golf, I would watch videos of him and I think he’s the best of all time.”

One can only imagine what Tiger Woods might feel once he comes to know Alvarez’s approbative words.

Canelo Alvarez has been an avid golfer for a while. In fact, he has gone against some noteworthy athletes active in competitive sports today. The legendary boxer has played golf matches against the likes of NFL star Ezekiel Elliott and NBA champion Stephen Curry.

In professional boxing, Alvarez is a 4-division world champion and has over fifty wins. Definitely, he demands to be recognized as a shining emerald in his primary sport. On the other side of the spectrum, in the world of golf, Tiger Woods is a name that equals massive glory and power. Woods has 82 PGA TOUR, 12 International, and 14 Additional victories.

Alvarez made his debut in professional boxing seventeen years ago. He was a teenager when he started and is now in his early thirties. Alvarez has grown vividly as a person and as an athlete, as much as the sports around him have grown since his arrival in 2005. With only one loss in professional boxing (to Floyd Mayweather), and over a decade of active participation, he is a true inspiration for many.

Mayweather (45) is still planning a comeback to professional boxing. Hence, 31-year-old Alvarez has plenty of time left in the sport. As Canelo already has more fights and wins than ‘Money‘, one can only imagine what his record would look like after a few more years.
