Saul Alvarez, popularly called Canelo, achieved a rare feat of becoming a three-weight world champion on Sunday after his fight against Rocky Fielding for the WBA ‘regular’ super middleweight title turned out to be an out-and-out mismatch.

Fighting for the first time in the 76.2 kilograms’ division, Canelo put a much-bigger Fielding on the floor once each in the first three rounds. When a fourth knockdown happened in the third, the referee stopped the scheduled 12-round fight.

And, Canelo looked a happy man as he gestured to heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua – sitting ringside – in what appeared to be a moment of bromance between the two elite fighters.

And Joshua couldn’t stop blushing after Canelo’s reaction, as can be seen in the video below.

Canelo is next expected to fight come May 4, the date for which an opponent is yet to finalized. Could it be a trilogy with Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin? Time shall tell.

Joshua, on the other hand, is scheduled to defend his belts against yet-to-be-confirmed opponent.
