22-year-old Mexican boxing sensation, Canelo Alvarez, will be entering the ring on Saturday night to face off against fellow undefeated super middleweight champion Austin Trout. During the fight, Alvarez will be making boxing history, but not for a reason that you may think.
Alvarez will be wearing the first Under Armour boxing boots ever made. Oh, it get’s even better. They are bright pink.
Here is an image of the boots, courtesy of Darren Rovell on Twitter:
I don’t know about all of you, but these are pretty incredible and they will certainly catch your attention during the broadcast. Perhaps Canelo is trying to distract Trout with his flashy shoes as he attempts to unify the WBC and WBA super middleweight championships.
Alvarez (41-0, 30 KO) and Trout (26-0, 14 KO) come in to the fight with unblemished records, but one man will be leaving with the first loss of their career.
