What is Saúl 'Canelo' Álvarez's net worth?
Mexican fighter Álvarez is ranked as one of the finest pound-for-pound boxers of his generation ahead of the Super Middleweight world title fight.
San Antonio, Texas is the setting for Saturday night's big fight as Mexican Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez takes on Liverpool's Callum Smith for the WBA and The Ring Super Middleweight world titles. For both men this is their first fight of the year after a severely disrupted 2020 boxing calendar but many boxing experts are predicting a fight of real quality.
Alvarez’s last fight came in November 2019 when he defeated Sergey Kovalev to secure the WBO Light Heavyweight title with an 11th-round knockout. The Mexican has a stellar record of 53 wins from 56 professional fights, with his sole defeat coming at the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Alvarez pocketed roughly $50 million combined for his first two fights on streaming platform DAZN but should earn at least $35 million per fight in the future and according to specialist platform Celebrity Net Worth, Canelo Álvarez is currently worth $140 million. The Mexican fighter signed a five-year, $365 million contract with Oscar De La Hoya's promotion company and DAZN back in 2018, though the remaining money from that deal was voided in November when Alvarez split from Golden Boy and DAZN to become a free agent.
