Canelo Alvarez Delivers Thunderous Third Round Knockout

In front of more than 31,000 raucous fans Minute Maid Park in Houston, super  welterweight sensation Mexico’s Canelo Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) knocked out Texas’ James “Mandingo Warrior” Kirkland (32-2, 28 KOs) with a thunderous right hand in the middle of the third-round, capping a sensational performance that saw the 24-year-old drop Kirkland in the first and deliver a number of huge shots before the eventual end of the fight.

Watch: Canelo mauls Kirkland in third-round stoppage win

At the Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (45-1-1 32 KO’s) overcame James Kirkland’s rabid aggression to down and defeat the “Mandingo Warrior” in three rounds.

Kirkland came out fighting. The once-beaten 154-lber was looking to land a fight-changing left hand power shot from the very beginning. At that, he wouldn’t find much success. Canelo struck first — landing a crisp straight-right which buckled the feet of Kirkland and sent him to the canvas. For the second half of the opening round, Alvarez dealt real damage and nearly finished the bout, but was stopped by the bell.
