Pugilist Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez was the only Mexican to sneak into the list of Forbes’s 100 highest-paid athletes in 2020, so he certainly boast on his Instagram account what he buys with his fortune.
According to Forbes, in March this year, ‘Canelo’ had already generated profits of 37 million dollars, of which 2 million were for sponsorships and 37 million for his salary and prizes, making it at number 30 on the list.
All that money can not stay kept, so the boxer spends it on luxury goods. Recently on his Instagram account he shared a photo of his two Mercedes G Class trucks
In his post he asked his followers, “Which do you prefer 6×6 or 4×4 square?”. The cost of vehicles is quite high, the 6×6 is around 9 million pesos, while the 4×4 has a cost of 3.5 million.

As if that were not enough, the winner of four championships in different weight categories, also wears Air Jordan Dior tennis, which have a price of almost 50 thousand pesos. Its high cost is because only 13,000 pairs were made, and ‘Canelo’ is one of the lucky holders.
The publication of the pugilist only in a sample of everything he owns, since it is known that in his garage he has a Bugatti Chiron, a Ferrari 458 and three Lamborguini, the Gallardo, Aventador and Urus.
Throughout 2020, Saul “Canelo” Álvarez has not had any fight despite the fact that in 2019 he signed a contract with streaming platform DAZN for 365 million with which both parties pledged to hold two fights a year.
But in view of the null activity, the Mexican boxer initiated legal proceedings last September against his promoter, Oscar de la Hoya, the promoter Golden Boy Promotions and the DAZN platform for breach and interference of contract, so Álvarez seeks compensation of 280 million dollars.
