• Canelo Alvarez is considered by boxing personalities as "pound-for-pound king"
  • Canelo works on his southpaw stance, jabs and movement
  • Canelo sees himself fighting all over the world

Four-division champ Saul “Canelo” Alvarez showed off some frightening boxing skills as he worked on his southpaw stance.

In not only in one occasion, Canelo has been referred to by boxing personalities as the “pound-for-pound king” and for Oscar De La Hoya, Canelo is even “the face of boxing.” With his lethal body shots and undeniable knockout power, Canelo instantly became a household name in boxing. However, some analysts think that the Mexican superstar is lacking one thing in his fighting style – jabs and movement.

It didn’t take long for Canelo to realize that he has to ultimately improve his overall game in order to become the world’s greatest fighter. In fact, even though the redhead champ himself has admitted in the past that he likes to work on his “power shots than jabs,” he has been recently spotted perfecting his jabs and head movement.

A few days ago, a video uploaded by Little Giant Boxing showed Canelo hitting the Kobra bag as he evidently master the “art of hitting and not getting hit.”

The four-minute video shows Canelo repeatedly jabbing on the Kobra bag and dodging everytime it hits back at him. It is also noticeable that the champ is working on his southpaw stance seemingly formulating a new strategy.

Canelo has been known as a heavy-hitter but not really a defensive boxer. However, after a series of world title fights, Canelo has significantly improved his movement and footwork. In fact, shortly after beating Sergey Kovalev, Canelo boasted about “being a different fighter” now compared to the one who got schooled by Floyd Mayweather Jr. a few years ago.

Now that Canelo has already made history in the Kovalev fight, he is currently being targeted by an array of fighters hoping to put an end in his reign. Despite being consistently linked to his middleweight nemesis Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin, Canelo is reluctant to name the fighter he wants to fight next. However, in an interview with DAZN in Saudi Arabia last month, the four-division title holder stated that he sees himself making the biggest fights of his career happen around the world, Boxing Scene reported.

“It’s an excellent opportunity. Of course I can see myself fighting anywhere in the world,” Canelo said.

“I can see myself fighting here (in Saudi Arabia), fighting in Japan, in England. Believe me, this is something. What a moment it would be for my career to fight anywhere in the world for the right opportunity,” Canelo continued.
