Canelo Alvarez is regarded by many as the current face of boxing with four championships captured in four weight divisions, but even though the day of his retirement is still a long way off, the Mexican superstar has a rough idea as to what age he should retire.
One of Canelo's keys to staying at the very top and boasting just a single loss on his record, is to fully surrender himself to the gym with dedication.
"I always have discipline, work ethic, and dedication. The only thing that has changed are my successes, I train every day as if I was a rookie," said Canelo during an interview with Box Azteca.
The Mexican star added that while boxing is his greatest passion, this does not mean that he does not have a day in mind when he feels it's the right moment to hang up the gloves.
"Boxing is my life. My body asks me to fight. I keep training because I love boxing, I train whether I have a fight or not ... 36-years-old... for me that's a good time to retire, 37-years-old at the max," revealed Canelo, who turns 30 in July.
And what will the four division champion do after hanging up his gloves?
"I'll dedicate myself to my business and playing golf every day," Canelo said.
Regarding his next fight, Canelo indicates that he does not have the slightest idea about who he will face as soon as the coronavirus pandemic ends, but he added that it has been difficult to negotiate, since the opponents are always asking for a lot of money.
"To win a dollar they want to win 10. Instead of seeking glory, they are looking for money. I'm not saying it's wrong, but don't exaggerate your worth," said Canelo.
