Putting together a 10-best knockouts list for a 23-year-old fighter like Saul Alvarez is probably jumping the gun a little bit. The majority of Canelo's stoppages have come against relatively obscure opponents and/or smaller fighters.
But it is also a good way to provide a basic historical overview of the young star's career to date. Like many, I am of the opinion that the redhead's popularity exceeds his accomplishments by a measure or two.
On the other hand, he is unquestionably one of the biggest current stars in the sport. And it is naive and cynical to dismiss his accomplishments out of hand.
The resume he has compiled at such a young age puts him well on track for bigger and better things going forward.
