This is the moment Mexican boxing champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is seen riding a jet ski around his new luxury yacht reportedly valued at 60 million USD.
Local media report Santos Saul Alvarez Barragan, more commonly known as Canelo Alvarez, 29, is enjoying his time off in the Bahamas after his latest victory over Russian fighter Sergey Kovalev on 2nd November at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Alvarez reportedly bought a yacht valued at 60 million USD (45.81 million GBP) which he is seen enjoying in a post he made to his army of 6.4 million followers.
The video shows the moment Alvarez and his girlfriend Fernanda Gomez ride around in jet skis and blue water as a black yacht is anchored at a short distance.
The couple then rides their jet skis to circle the yacht showing its impressive size before ending up on the same side that they started on.
Alvarez can be seen flexing both arms posing for the camera as the video comes to an end.
Alvarez has won 53 of his 56 fights throughout his professional boxing career. He has changed weight classes but most of his fights have been in the middleweight divisions.
He became one of the world’s wealthiest athletes after signing an incredible 11-fight 278-million-GBP deal with DAZN last year.
His first fight of the deal was with Liverpool-born Rocky Fielding which ended in a victory by KO for Alvarez in the third round which crowned him the WBA (Regular) super middleweight World Champion in December 2018.
He most recently went up another weight classes to light heavyweight and beat former WBO light-heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev, 36, on 2nd November in the 11th round at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas crowning him world champion in a fourth weight class.
Local media report Alvarez is enjoying some time off before he announces his next opponent alongside his trainer Eddy Reynoso on 15th January for his next bout which is set to take place in May of this year.
