Canelo Alvarez and the incredible story of his unrecorded loss to Mario Abel Cázares

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has an impressive record of 57 wins, 39 of them by knockout, in 61 fights, in 16 years of professional career. He made his debut on October 29, 2005 at the age of 15. Since that time, he has accumulated only two draws (Jorge Juarez in 2006 and Gennady Golovkin in 2017) and two defeats (Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013 and Dmitry Bivol in 2022).

However, his amateur record is unclear as some reports state that he had 20 fights, others had more than 40 and there is even talk of two defeats in this period.

According to BoxRec, Canelo registered a record of 44-2, considering that other reports indicate only 20 fights.

Of these two defeats, one of them was against Mario Abel Cázares in the 2004 Mexico's Junior Olympics, held in Culiacán. Of the other loss, there is no further record.

Mario Abel Cázares offers Canelo a rematch

This alleged bout took place 18 years ago, however, Cázares, originally from Culiacán, has been very enthusiastic and has even offered a rematch to the fighter from Guadalajara, despite the fact that his time in the professional ranks has been brief. However, he wants a fight regulated by international bodies.

"Canelo cried at the end. He cried a lot. And I think that if we fight again I would leave him crying again," said Cazares in an interview, recalling his triumph, defeating the one who achieved recognition as the best pound-for-pound in the world and first undisputed champion of Mexican origin.

"We are not going to give up until we get that duel, we already beat 'Canelo' and I can leave him crying again. He knows he has a debt pending with me, it's just a matter of him not being afraid and wanting to make the fight," said Mario Abel Cázares.

Cázares is 32 years old, he debuted as a professional in 2015 and his record is just 12-1 (five knockouts). His last win was against Julio César Chávez Jr. and he had 12 wins in a row before being defeated by David Morrell by knockout.
