World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman is in awe of the Canelo Alvarez's victory from last Saturday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Canelo dominated undefeated Callum Smith to capture the WBC, WBA super middleweight titles.
The victory made Canelo a legitimate four division, after also capturing titles at junior middleweight, middleweight and light heavyweight.
Sulaiman, who was ringside at the venue, could not believe how easily Canelo won the fight.
"[Canelo] achieved another resplendent glory this past Saturday by dominating and overwhelming British Callum Smith at the Alamodome in San Antonio. A superb promotion with spectacular production, an extravaganza that wraps up a complicated year for the world of sports," Sulaiman said.
"Canelo conquered the vacant super middleweight championship of the World Boxing Council, thus achieving supreme triple WBC champion status, adding this Green and Gold Belt to the super welterweight and middleweight championships he had achieved over the years. Canelo began his career and grew through the WBC platform and its affiliated championships. WBC Youth world champion, NABF and WBC Silver champion served as his preparation to reach with maturity the world stage.
"The pandemic prevented Canelo to fight in the traditional 5 de Mayo and September 16 cards, then became a free agent and with end of the year approaching, the fight vs. Callum Smith was announced. Smith undefeated, a talented and experienced fighter, presented a great threat to the pound-for-pound king. The images from the press conference, the official weigh-in, and before the ringing of the bell were truly dramatic. Callum Smith seemed to be a looming giant when they measured together with an extraordinary advantage of 18 centimeters in height.
"The bell rang and lofty Smith dominated the first round with the use of the jab due to a considerable wingspan. Canelo immediately established his fight plan and managed to weave inside Smith's guard and systematically beat him up with spectacular crunching body shots, uppercuts, various combinations that even led to Smith's corner to consider for the fight to end after a torrid 10th round. Smith was exceptionally brave and managed to finish the contest on his feet. Canelo was declared the winner by unanimous decision, Canelo sensational, on top of the world."
