FORBES: Canelo Alvarez Biggest Star in Boxing

In a recent article posted by Forbes, Boxing’s Top 10 Pound-For-Pound Moneymakers: Canelo On Top, Andre Ward Moves Up, Lomachenko Debuts , #TeamEverlast athlete Canelo Alvarez, once again reigns as the biggest draw in the sport of boxing.

From Forbes:

1. Canelo Alvarez (previously No. 1): Though he convincingly won both of his bouts in 2016, knocking out Amir Khan and Liam Smith, Alvarez’s reputation and his PPV sales took a hit. But he’s still the biggest star in the sport, and if he fights Gennady Golovkin in September, it’d be worth tens of millions of dollars to the sport (and to his pocketbook).

With a fight date around May 5th on the horizon, we should expect another massive fight out of the young superstar.
