(Video) Canelo Alvarez was feeling himself in playful training vid

Undisputed super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez is known for his intense focus and dedication in training camp. However, even the pound-for-pound king allows himself to let loose and have some fun occasionally.

In a recent video that went viral on social media, Alvarez can be seen vibing out during a training session ahead of his upcoming fight against Jaime Munguia on May 4th. As Mexican music plays in the background, the 33-year-old dances around the ring, playing air guitar while simultaneously evading punches from a slip bag to work on his trademark head movement.

The lighthearted clip showcases Alvarez’s ability to stay relaxed amid his famously grueling training regimens. His teammates can be seen joining in on the fun, creating an enjoyable atmosphere in the gym.

Fans had mixed reactions to the video, with some simply appreciating the humorous side of the usually all-business Alvarez. Others compared his dance moves to those of Ryan Garcia, the flashy lightweight contender known for incorporating choreography into his training.

“Canelo would whoop anybody’s ass fighting like that too. He’s simply the best,” wrote one admirer. Another chimed in, “Trying the Ryan method I see.” A third fan quipped, “He wants to be Ryan Garcia so bad.”

The playful session serves as a reminder that even elite athletes need an occasional break from the intensity to recharge their batteries, both physical and mental. Alvarez seems to have struck that balance perfectly as he puts the final preparations in place to defend his undisputed title against the undefeated Munguia in Las Vegas on Cinco de Mayo weekend.
