Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez dropped James Kirkland in the third round tonight in a fight that was never, ever fair. The HBO bout delivered, if you’re a boxing fan who likes to see guys get hit in the face really hard (and might have been disappointed by last week’s dance-a-thon.)

Álvarez told HBO after the fight that he looks forward to taking on GGG, which everyone should be very very excited about.
