Canelo Alvarez's ambitions finally caught up with him on Saturday when the pound-for-pound king appeared in his match in the form of undefeated WBA light heavyweight champion Dimitri Bevol.

Bevol's jab was on point everywhere and he responded with a clean combination in return for any single punch he consistently made.

Bevel allows Alvarez a position very close to his front but does not give him a clean enough strike zone to land.

Most of the damage that Alvarez did was connected to Bevol's left shoulder and arm, which was behind his high guard.

"I felt his strength. You can see from my arm, he hit my hand but not my head," Bevel said.
