It was the fight that actually lived up to its build as Saul “Canelo” Alvarez squared off against James Kirkland on HBO in front of a pro-Canelo crowd at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.
It was one of the best opening rounds in the last few years as both Kirkland and Canelo landed hard shots that counted for both guys. Kirkland started off the fight with bad intentions, and he walked Canelo back into the corner and started letting his hands go. He was tagging Canelo, who couldn’t seem to get out of the corner, and even when Canelo was able to get out of the corner Kirkland would just chase him down with a punch first mentality.
