Canelo Alvarez ends the Guadalajara street fight in settlement

Newly crowned middleweight champion Santos Saul Alvarez Barragan has reached a gentleman’s agreement with former Mexican boxing champion Ulises Solis over a street fight they allegedly had in Guadalajara in 2011.


Solis slapped Canelo Alvarez with a $9 million lawsuit for breaking his jaw through a street fight, which prevented him from defending his IBF title. The International Boxing Federation (IBF) stripped of the title from the Mexican for failing to honour a bout.

Saul Canelo Alvarez, Guadalajaran, 25, however, was set free by a Los Angeles court on Thursday when he decided to settle his countryman out of court.

Canelo Alvarez became the first Mexican in boxing history to win the Junior middleweight and the middleweight titles in November, 2015 when he romped off Miguel Cotto at the Mandalay Bay arena in Las Vegas, USA.
