Alvarez knocks out Kovalev in Round 11 to win his fourth championship
Mexican boxing superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (53-1-2, 26KOs), knocked out Sergey Kovalev (34-4-1, 29KOs) of Russia in the 11th round of their WBO light heavyweight championship fight on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Alvarez, the "red-haired boy", was kept out of Kovalev's reach for most of the bout, but when it came to the end of fight, he found a chance to destroy the much-taller opponent with a big right hand.
Alvarez has now become a four-division title owner, and currently holds the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF middleweight championships, alongside his latest prize, the WBO light heavyweight championship.
