Review: 2011-09-17, in the first round Saul “Canelo” Alvarez knocks down Gomez but from the second round the fight become very balanced. In fact at the beginning of the sixth Lederman scores a draw (47-47) but in the same round, during a nice and powerful combination of Alvarez, the referee stops the fight (probably too quickly). Saul Alvarez defeated Alfonso Gomez by TKO defending his WBC light middleweight title. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (37-0-1) entered as the No.4 light middleweight in the world while Alfonso Gomez (23-4-2) entered as the No.13. Watch the video!
