Canelo Alvarez put on a dominant display when he was asked to try out a virtual reality boxing game.
The sport’s pound-for-pound king donned the VR headset during a live interview on Mexican TV a few years back, and dealt with his foe with ease.
It didn’t take long for Canelo’s competitive streak to show as he took the game very seriously from the off.
He instantly applied his famous defensive head movement and slipped the opposing character’s punches.
Canelo then returned fire with a combination and scored an early knockdown.
The character rose off the canvas and landed a couple of big shots, causing Canelo to swear.
He quickly returned to form though, and landed another series of punches to win by KO.
Canelo proudly celebrated the victory as the audience cheered.
This is a feeling he is now very used to and most recently experienced after his win over Caleb Plant last month.
Canelo has now indicated that he intends to move up to cruiserweight and face Ilunga Makabu next.
His old foe Floyd Mayweather is not a fan of this move.
Floyd told reporters about Canelo: “He’s going up to cruiserweight, he’s fighting a guy that’s really not, ugh, the guy’s up and down.
“If it was up to me, we wanna see Benavidez.
“Canelo’s a helluva fighter, but in my personal opinion he’s ducking David Benavidez.
“He’s going up to cruiserweight, I’m not knocking him, but that same guy was at the Mayweather Boxing Gym, the guys were really getting the best of him in the Mayweather Boxing Gym.
“He’s going up to quote-unquote ‘cruiserweight’ – David Benavidez could beat that same guy…
“Do I like this fight? Absolutely not. We wanna see Benavidez, let’s make it happen.”
