Canelo Alvarez firmly has his sights set on becoming the undisputed rule of the super-middleweight division.
Eddie Hearn, who has promoted Canelo’s recent fights, believes that the Mexican icon will fight around the world once he has fulfilled his mission of winning every belt in his weight class.

With the four-weight world champion’s popularity growing with each fight, it’s almost certain that multiple regions would go all out to host him.
"You saw one of the biggest stars in global boxing, and I think his plan now is to go and become undisputed," said Hearn when speaking to Sky Sports. "That's a fight with Caleb Plant, which I think will happen in Las Vegas in September. “
Then from there, he wants to go and box around the world. He would love to fight in the UK. I think his popularity here is through the roof.
Hearn continued, “He's beaten seven UK fighters over the years, so he'd love to fight here. He said he'd love to fight in the Middle East, the Far East. Of course, in Mexico again in a huge show, so I think you're going to see him box around the world.
"He told me that he wants to fight for seven more years, so you're going to be seeing a lot of Canelo Alvarez."
