The world champion in four weight classes Saul Alvarez went through a lot in his life. The Mexican’s parents divorced when he was 13 years old. He stayed with his father, who constantly disappeared at work, leaving his son alone. However, instead of contacting bad company or starting to use alcohol or drugs, Alvarez discovered boxing and dedicated his life entirely to it.
“It was very difficult for me to survive the divorce of my parents, because I was part of their divorce. I felt it all. I don’t even know … God gave me a very strong character. I stayed with my father, ”says Saul.
“By that time, all my brothers and sisters were already married. I was the only one who still lived with my parents, and when they divorced, my father was constantly working, so I was constantly left alone. When I say alone, I mean that I was really alone. “
“When I got acquainted with boxing, I said to myself:“ This is what I want. This is what I want to do and nothing will stop me. ” I decided to be a boxer. “
“Of course, where I lived, there were many temptations – alcohol, drugs and all that, but I have never tried a drug in my life, not once!”
