In an all-Mexican battle during Cinco de Mayo weekend in Las Vegas, boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez outslugged Jaime Munguia in a super-middleweight championship match before 17,492 at T-Mobile Arena. Despite strong support for Munguia, the loss included the first knockdown of his 44-bout career.

Alvarez’s fourth defense of his four 168-pound titles was scored at 115-113, 117-110 and 116-111 by the three judges, while ESPN scored it 118-109. This was the third fight in a row Alvarez (61-2-2, 39 KOs) scored a knockdown. He also dropped Jermell Charlo and John Ryder to the canvas in decision wins last year.

“I’m very proud that all the Mexicans are here watching us,” Alvarez told ESPN. “ … He’s a great fighter. He’s strong, he’s smart. … But he’s a little slow. I can see every punch. Sometimes he got me because I get so confident. … I did really good, and I feel proud about it. … I’m the best fighter right now for sure.”
