Photos: Canelo Gets a New Pet For Home, Baby Lion

By Miguel Rivera

Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (44-1-1, 32KOs) is a fan of the big cats. Canelo got the proper permits and purchased a baby lion. Heavyweight great Mike Tyson was also a fan of purchasing big cats like tigers and lions. Canelo will return to action in the month of December. It will be his third fight of the year. He stopped Alfredo Angulo in the month of March and then came back in July to win a close decision over WBA 'regular' 154-pound champion Erislandy Lara.
