Like many, Canelo Alvarez was entertained by this past weekend’s trilogy.
Tyson Fury successfully defended his WBC heavyweight title for the first time following an 11th-round knockout of Deontay Wilder Saturday night in Las Vegas.
It was the fifth and final knockdown in what was an epic fight many are considering to be one of the greatest of all time — especially in the heavyweight division.
Alvarez notably thought it was a great fight and offered some advice to the fallen Wilder who is now winless in his last three outings against Fury.
“Great fight, great fight,” Alvarez said in a recent interview (via The Mirror). “I think Wilder needs more condition, more moves, move the head. It’s difficult when you don’t have condition and don’t know how to move.
“That’s why Tyson Fury beat him. Tyson Fury’s a great fighter.”
Like the saying goes, it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks, and it remains to be seen if Wilder is able to improve his conditioning, let alone his head movement and repertoire.
However, there is certainly no denying his heart.
