Early Beginnings

Saúl Álvarez, 23, is known as “Canelo,” meaning cinnamon, for his red hair. He was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, and is the youngest sibling of eight boys, all of whom became professional boxers. At 15, Álvarez turned pro and knocked out 11 of his 13 opponents in the first months of his career.  (Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
