CANELO ALVAREZ will end up beating HEAVYWEIGHTS according to former cruiserweight champ Tony Bellew.
The Mexican dominated Liverpoool's Callum Smith from start to finish to win the WBC and WBA super-middleweight world titles.
That means Canelo is now a four-weight world champ, with Bellew describing his progress through the divisions as 'unexplainable'.
The Bomber tweeted: "Yes I agree he’s great and amazing at what he does but it’s unexplainable to be able to go through weight divisions like this and bully people!
"Take nothing away from his boxing ability cos he’s amazing but come on ffs! He’s gonna end up legging HEAVYWEIGHTS!"
Canelo had too much power and precision for Smith and stormed to victory after 12 one-sided and almost identical rounds in Texas.
After the win, he said: “I did a great job after 13 months out.
“Smith is a great fighter but I did a great job. I am so happy.
“I am the best in the world and from the first round I wanted to see what he brings but I showed what I am."
Canelo was banned from boxing for six months after failing two drugs tests in 2018.
The Mexican fighter, 30, twice tested positive for banned substance clenbuterol after giving samples on February 17 and February 20.
He claimed it was a result of eating contaminated meat, and went on to pass two drugs tests ahead of his rematch against Golovkin.
But with the hearing date into the failed samples coming too close to the fight date of May 5, Canelo was forced to withdraw from the fight.
He did end up having that fight though in September that year, winning on points in another close-fought scrap.
Canelo has now won world titles at super-welter, middle, super-middle and light-heavyweight.
