Five years ago today, Saúl ‘Canelo’ Ålvarez knocked every fuck Amir Khan had left in his body out of him. Canelo entered the bout defending his WBC Middleweight title, and improved to 46-1-1, with 32 knockouts after nearly decapitating Khan in round six. Khan had actually been boxing well, using his speed and distance prior to receiving the fight-ending right hand, but you could only do that so often with Alvarez. Unfortunately, Khan was not only KO’d in front of a sold out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, it took him a while before being helped to his feet. Canelo has improved his record to 55-1-2 with 37 KO’s since, and Khan has just been 3-1 since, and hasn’t competed in nearly two full years.
