As arguably the best pound-for-pound active boxer today, most times you hear the name Canelo Álvarez, you’re likely to think of his prowess inside the ring. This time around, however, we’ll look at something much less talked about: his love life.

Who is Canelo Álvarez?

Born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, on July 18, 1990, Santos Saúl Álvarez Barragán, known to us all as Canelo Álvarez, is a Mexican professional Boxer and, quite frankly, one of the greatest ever to step in a ring. With multiple World Championships to his name across four weight classes - light middleweight to light heavyweight - Canelo is the first and only boxer ever to become Undisputed Super Middleweight Champion. The Mexican has also held the WBA(Super), WBC, and Ring magazine titles since 2020. With his next fight in line with Jermell Charlo, Canelo is again under the spotlight as he tries to reclaim his undisputed crown. All of this brings us to his personal life and the women who have been and currently are part of it.

Who did Canelo Álvarez date before his marriage?

A father of four, Canelo has children between four different women. The first of those is Karen Beltran, who was Álvarez’s high school sweetheart. Indeed, at the tender age of 16-years-old Álvarez and Beltran came to the realization that she was pregnant. With that, daughter Emily Cinnamon Álvarez was born to the young couple, and for a time, things seemed stable. Eventually, however, the couple would separate though Canelo maintains a close relationship with his daughter to this day. Álvarez would later date model Valeria Quiroz, with whom he would have a daughter named Mia Ener. Following his brief relationship with Quiroz, Canelo would later fall for Nadia Sepulveda, who was also his business partner. The couple would welcome a son in 2019 named Saul Adiel Sepulveda. Once again, a split would be on the cards, and as such, Canelo and Nadia called it quits. It is understood that they maintain a healthy relationship.

Who is Canelo Álvarez’s wife, Fernanda Gomez?

Today Canelo Álvarez is married to Fernanda Gomez. Born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, on June 22, 1996, Gomez is a model, businesswoman, and social media influencer with more than 1 million followers on Instagram. The owner of nail salons and stores in Guadalajara, Mexico, Gomez, has a current net worth of $20 million. In terms of how they met, Canelo and Fernanda first crossed paths at an OMB Gala in October of 2016. During those initial days, the relationship was somewhat unstable, and the couple would actually separate just a year later in 2017. They would later reconcile in 2018 and would shortly afterward welcome the birth of their daughter, Maria Fernanda Álvarez.

The now happy couple would marry on May 15 2022 in a lavish ceremony just a few short days after Canelo defeated Billy Joe Saunders for the WBO middleweight title. Though not much is known about their relationship, Maria continues to be a fixture at Álvarez’s fights, which is to say you can expect to see her when her husband takes on John Ryder this very weekend.
